A magical place exists in Northeast Minneapolis where they serve momos and sushi.
The name is Momo Sushi.
I met my friend here on a brutally cold evening. In Minnesota, brutally cold is sub-zero. A heat wave is 26+.
Hot green tea is complimentary here, as if offering both sushi and momos isn’t great enough.
What I really want to talk about is the vegetarian sushi platter – the Vegetable Deluxe. We both ordered it.
During the three decades I’ve lived in the Twin Cities, I’ve never seen A Christmas Carol at the Guthrie.
I’ve always heard about it, though, for it’s the 44th season.
This year my folks took us. It’s no surprise that the acting, sets, and sound were stunning.
What struck me the most was the diversity of the cast. Growing-up, I rarely saw people that looked like me cast in television shows or movies, unless they were a “bit” or the show was themed.
For example, Tiny Tim’s family included people of many races (and Tiny Tim was played by a girl). This wasn’t discussed or alluded to, the family just simply was.
It makes me excited that people get to see more and more actors who look like them in stories, new and old.
