As I mentioned in the last post on my Doctor Who-themed lunch, in addition to the 50th anniversary episode being shown on television, movie theatres all over the globe were simulcasting it as it played in England. The closest theatres to us showing it on Saturday were in Chicago and Minneapolis. The tickets sold out in just about ten minutes, but luckily, we snagged two for a showing in Minneapolis!
So on Friday we drove north for a very quick, 24 hour-style trip. (That’s why there was no Friday Mail Day post last week! If you have any questions you’d like me to cover for this week, send them my way!) We got into the city in the late afternoon, did a requisite walk around the Mall of America, and then went to our hotel to check in.
