Let’s Meet! I’m going to be at the “Doo Wop Coffee Shop and Diner” (also known as Dave’s Place) in Starbuck, Minn., Saturday, July 7th, 8:00 am to 3:00 pm. I’ll be selling and signing books for Dave’s constant flow of customers, some of whom I’ll know because we spend a lot of time at our cabin on Lake Minnewaska. Starbuck is right on the lake, and Dave’s is in downtown Starbuck. It will be all-day fun. Dave is a serious collector of ‘50s and ‘60s memorabilia and a lot is on display at the coffee shop. Take a look at the pictures on his website, http://www.doowopcoffeeshop.com/  The other attraction of this week is the city’s Heritage Days celebration. This west central Minnesota city has been celebrating its heritage for decades. People come for the music, the beach party (on one of the top 5 beaches in Minnesota according to AAA magazine in 2010), food and craft fair. That’s not all. Of course there’s a parade, a coronation and golf tournament. Check out the schedule at http://www.starbuckmn.org/content/heritage-days  Come and stay for the whole week.
