This summer everyone was talking about a thing happening in front of Grand Rounds. A lot of people thought they were going to build a deck on top of the sidewalk, but instead, the deck was designed to go over a couple of parking spaces and extend the sidewalk to make a park...let.

There are cushions for each seat and if I know Grand Rounds, they'll have blankets out there, too. It's fall, and we don't stop doing what we do, we just make an adjustment or two, and keep on going.

If you're reading this and you're here for Mayo Clinic or business from someplace where 55 degrees is cold, you may be staring at the screen and thinking us without sense.

And that's fair. I know it may seem odd but come back in February when we have a big outdoor party with ice bars and igloos and the whole community wears parkas, winter boots, and more just to have a drink outside when it's five-below-zero!
