History of Hip: Cities V. Suburbs

  • Historic Hamm Building 408 St. Peter St. Saint Paul, MN 55102 United States (map)

This is a 21+ event at the historic Hamm Building.

From the website: "As long as suburbs have existed, neighboring residents have competed for resources and recognition. But can urbanites and suburbanites overcome differences to share assets and create a vibrant metro community? Dominique Pierre-Toussaint, an educator and community activist who lives in Eden Prairie and works in Hopkins, shares his thoughts on the challenges and rewards of suburban life, with Ann Buck of the Hopkins police department. Writer and geographer Bill Lindeke of the St. Paul Planning Commission discusses efforts to make St. Paul and surrounding suburbs a more cohesive community and shares his predictions for the future of Twin Cities suburbs."

History of Hip takes place at Vieux Carre in the lower level of the historic Hamm Building, 408 St. Peter St., Saint Paul, MN 55102. Ticket price ranges from $12 (members) to $15 (non members) and includes one drink. This is a 21 plus event.
