Compendium is an online portfolio and composite resource of fun to be had in Minneapolis. Encompassing theater, arts, books, restaurants, museums, charity, and more, it is a one-stop shop for anyone invested in making the most of Minneapolitan life.

There are multiple pages, each with a theme. Some, such as Art and Theater, are self-explanatory. Others, such as Books, track my activity on Goodreads and compile my reading goals. Still others, such as Sundries and Karma, follow posts that don't fit into narrowly defined categories, or offer information about ways to give back to the community.

If you love the content here, awesome! Make sure you subscribe (upper left hand corner), or follow my Twitter @becki_iverson and Instagram @beckiiverson. You can email me at compendiummpls@gmail.com. And I'm beyond excited that I'm now writing for Thrillist! Click here to check out my articles (which you should definitely do, because they and Thrillist at large are pretty awesome).

I am also a member of the growing Twin Cities Theater Bloggers group. We just hosted our first public event and talk-back (I co-moderated) and we have some amazing things in store! Make sure you fangirl with us on our Facebook page, Twitter, and other media. 

Please feel free to leave a comment, have a conversation, share a link, suggest an activity, or more. I'm always exploring more to do and I'd love to hear any suggestions you have. I read every comment you send, so the more the merrier!

Also as a note: I often receive comped tickets from theaters for which I write my reviews. Any opinions are my own regardless of whether the ticket was comped or not. 


  1. Free Interactive Live stream Fashion for Outreach Event here in MSP!

    We are hosting a Fashion for Outreach via livestream from The Lynhall, Saturday May 1st, 12:00PM and would love to invite you and all your friends to join us!

    We are partnering with Fashion Week MN and Simpson Housing Services to bring the community a fashion event celebrating local artists while also showcasing a local nonprofit doing amazing work here in Minneapolis. This event consists of a Live Model Sketch, Runway Preview, and Behind the Scenes Photo Shoot with in-person open house for a chance to meet the designer herself.

    Tickets are made inclusive (free) with a "Donate what you can, if you can!" price with all funds being donated to Simpson Housing Services who does great work for housing, supporting, and advocating for those experiencing homelessness. Last year alone, they provided supportive services to 568 individuals and 275 families with more than 593 children. Our goal is to use our platform as a way to raise $3,000 to help them continue their mission. No donation is too small. Every dollar counts!

    What makes this event so amazing is how rooted in community it is. Every aspect of this event has been made possible by in-kind contributions from local organizations and community members. Community is about coming together to help one another achieve their dreams while encouraging positive growth within each other, and we feel this event exemplifies that message.

    Please check it out and we hope to see you all there!!!
