In downtown Menomonie are two great small town comics and gaming shops. There is Heroes Welcome, which sells mostly comics, trading cards, and tabletop RPG accessories, and Gamequest, which sells lots of board games, trading cards, and video games! Both stores hold community events on different days of the week. Here are links to the Heroes Welcome Facebook page and the Gamequest Website:

The idea of three perfect days is that you can go to a place and spend three days experiencing everything that that place has to offer, the best of all it has. It can benefit many different groups, both the community it’s taking place in and the tourist groups that come there. By drawing attention to local businesses and attractions, it benefits the community, and brings important leisure time to the tourists. Our season, Winter Entertainment, is especially important because it can draw people out during the winter, a time notorious for keeping people indoors. It can keep a community alive and together during a time of quiet cold. Having something to do other than sit inside and watch TV all winter is important, because people need to be social to maintain a healthy society, and being kept up in one place for long periods of time isn’t good for you either, unless you want to develop agoraphobia. While the cold does make it difficult to get from place to place, especially if you don’t have a car, it can draw attraction to businesses that are indoors and warm. Having some kind of entertainment is important in those dark winter months, it helps keep you mentally healthy and happy. Also, if you live in Dunn County the entertainments we are going to suggest below are close enough to your home! Are you ready for enjoying the "Third Places" encouraged by a sociologist named Ray Oldenburg?

The sociologists Hughes-Hassel and Rhodes explored the leisure reading habits of urban adolescents in their article "The Leisure Reading Habits of  Urban Adolescents". Research indicates a strong relationship between leisure reading and school achievement, so educators should develop an understanding of the leisure reading habits of these youth once. Do you like reading? Are you interested in a lot of types of reading? You may not be an adolescent, but you may be a book fan or a fashion & “fancy” magazine fan. If so, you must don’t want to miss your leisure chance to enjoy reading! Moreover, you may like reading by playing the video games! Motoko Rich, a journalist from The New York Times, highly values the role of video games in reading books in her article “Using Video Games as Bait to Hook Readers”. Come to warm, pleasing and poly-devices UW-Stout library or the Menomonie Public Library to design and decide your own ways to read!

Dhamma Visuddhi

Are you struggling with the cold weather in outdoors? Do you actually want to find somewhere to leave the coldness behind? Do you like shopping? You may not necessarily buy anything, but that just looking at some interesting items can make you easily delighted? You bet! There are lots of interesting shops in which you can find lots of special items [What do these local residents like to give others as gifts? Come to La dee dah gift shop!] You canexplore lots of “crazy” stuff which you may not easily find in other hometowns or even cities and develop some social capital during your visits in those shops.  Also, are you a cheap person who loves quality items with affordable prices? There are some thrift shops and antique shops where you can be a buyer and a seller simultaneously and equally. Many economic classical liberals, such as Hayek, have argued that market economies are a spontaneous order, "a more efficient allocation of societal resources than any design could achieve." They claim this spontaneous order is superior to any order a human mind can design due to the specifics of the information required. Have you ever notice this when you were shopping before? Wanna have such an experience?

Everyone is welcome, you even don’t need to think about how many bucks you honestly have in your pockets. Oppositely, you may actually be earning money as you are walking into these thrift shops.
