Greed Gone Wild sale

The same garage sale bargainistas who troll through well-heeled neighborhoods for higher quality items will want to check out the Greed Gone Wild sale (4416 Excelsior Blvd., St. Louis Park, 612-810-4357). Local stylists with an eye for quality and design clean out their attics and closets and sell what’s in them twice a year, including new and used dinnerware, chandeliers, goblets, silver trays, crystal, accent furniture, toys, jewelry, clothing, fabrics and books. Hours are 5-8 p.m. Wednesday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.


Timberwolves for $2

Only a couple $2 tickets remained Wednesday morning (literally two) for the Timberwolves last home game vs. the Denver Nuggets on Thursday April 26 at 7 p.m. But after those are gone, check out the $3, $4, $5, $10 or  the courtside or free-throw line tickets for $50. Club level tickets (including valet parking and complimentary food and drinks) are between $58 and $126. You can purchase the tickets from TicketNetwork or Target Center. The best deals at TicketNetwork are the printable e-tickets. If hard copy tickets have to be overnighted by Fedex, it costs an extra $25. Yes, it's true that the Wolves aren't in the playoffs and Rubio is injured, but courtside seats can cost $300 or more and club seats with VIP access can be close to $1,000.
