Location: 2928 Lyndale Avenue S, Minneapolis
Hours: Mon-Thurs: 11AM-9PM, Fri-Sat: 11AM-11AM, Sun: 11AM-6PM

Last weekend, we got the chance to stop by Legacy Glassworks in Minneapolis’ Lyn-Lake neighborhood and lets just say we enjoyed what we saw. Their space sits right off the corners of Lake and Lyndale, a growing intersection which has seen somewhat of a transformation over the last few years. Upon entering the store the first thing we noticed was the vast amount of artwork displayed all over the room, not too much clutter, just a TON of local glass work and artwork. Artisanal wares from necklaces to paintings, to glass pipes to beads, this place has it all at decent prices. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable, one thing that set this place a notch above others in my book. Word around town is that they even offer glassblowing classes from time to time. Whether your stopping in for something economical or looking to make an investment in a piece of artwork, they’ve got you covered; check out some of the pics above and click the link below for their official website.

KAS – Arizona

The kid KAS has been low key as of late, but that all changed today with the release of a new track titled “Arizona.” The budding southside artist is known for his smooth, tropical sound and “Arizona” fits that mold to a T. Produced by the man himself, this record once again shows off KAS’ duel threat ability, which might be turning into a triple threat if he continues to produce like this. Right on time for the sunny days ahead, “Arizona” should get plenty of air-time in the coming months, check out the song above and keep an eye out for more from KAS.
