Jack's Itinerary

My Saturday morning starts bright and early with Hopkins Area Little League at Hopkins’ own Maetzold Field! Although T-Ball is fun, my favorite part is always the CONCESSION STAND! It’s never too early for a Maetzold Dog and a Ring Pop!

After my game, I love to take my Saturday Stroll in downtown Hopkins. We jump right on Lake Minnetonka LRT Regional Trail and stroll right downtown. Personally, I like to wave at my grandma who lives on 9th. If you see her, be sure wave – she is a nice lady!

We make our first stop when my sister and I see some potential friends at Clocktower Plaza! We have so much fun playing with our new friends (who highly recommend breakfast at Hoagies!) and checking out the sweet treasures in the Little Library made by Hopkins JCI. Someone had even left stickers!

Our journey continues when mom needs coffee and us kids need another snack! We head down Mainstreet to MunkaBeans. They have so many baked goods and snack selections to start out your day! There is so much to read and see in the shop the art is always changing. I really love this sign too!  

We like to take our snack on the go and head right around the corner to Central Park. My parents like to drink their coffee and we like to play! Bonus point meeting even MORE friends! (These friends recommend checking out the Hopkins Pavilion, where they had just come from the annual Plant Sale).

After the park, we get to stop at my favorite place, kiddywampus, the best toy store ever. Check out these Legos! I got a little set to take home and it wasn’t even my birthday!

After the toy store, we need to grab some lunch so we cross the street to Nacho's Mexican Grill. I put in an order for chicken nachos and guac, because the word looks like "quack"! My sister recommends getting an extra side of chips and queso. Mom loves the enchiladas salsa verde and Dad loves their street tacos. You can’t go wrong, especially on a nice day on their patio!

After lunch, my sister and brother head home for nap, but I had one last stop in mind. My dad and I make our way to to LTD Brewery to play the new game I got at kiddywampus, and get some popcorn and a root beer (my dad, recommends an IPA). Don’t worry if you forget your game, they have plenty to play there!

We end our Saturday Stroll right outside LTD to get a photo with the World's Largest Raspberry!
