The word “magical” is probably overused, but when describing the Taste of the Timberwolves event, it just feels like the right adjective to use for what happened on Thursday night.
It marked year No. 20 for the Taste of the Timberwolves event. The event gave fans the opportunity to walk throughout the Target Center court, taste a variety of food from the finest restaurants in the Twin Cities area and meet many of their favorite Timberwolves players and coaches.
“It's just an opportunity for fans to see our players up close and personal in a casual atmosphere where they can talk,” said the team’s General Manager Milt Newton, who took part in his second Taste of the Timberwolves. “It's an opportunity for good interaction. I think for the most part it's an opportunity for fans and members to get a chance to interact with our players.”
A few months after its launch back in October, the Timberwolves and Lynx Book Mobile is in full swing. It’s made various stops throughout the last few months and continued its trek throughout the Twin Cites Metro Area on Tuesday afternoon with a stop at the Southside Village Boys and Girls Club.
That stop in South Minneapolis kicked off Read to Achieve month, presented by ViaWest, as the organization works to put books in the hands of children while also offering incentives to read.
