331 Club: arguably the heart of the arts district.

MinnPost members and friends joined Stroll columnist Andy Sturdevant and membership coordinator Ashleigh Swenson on Sunday, Feb. 3, for a six-block walking tour of the eclectic 13th Avenue Arts District in Northeast Minneapolis. The tour, a prix fixe event unveiled at MinnPost's 5th anniversary party last November, began at the 331 Club.
