In days of yore, the lesbian bar scene was apparently pretty sparse. Though there were various Dykes Do Drag events throughout the year, few specific locales catered to this untapped niche market. Some gay bar patrons even went renegade, hilariously hijacking ladies' nights around the city at various sports bars. But now that Pi has been on the scene and thriving for over a year, there's at least one Minneapolis pub out there that is openly lesbian-friendly. The bar hit the ground running when it opened, hosting a myriad of live music nights, film screenings, and free pool. And though the scene is lesbian-friendly, the emphasis is on friendly, for everyone. Included in the weekly lineup is a Tuesday trivia night. Though you might want to ease up after a night of partying into 2008, it never hurts to flex the brain muscle. Those with the most expansive, trivial of knowledge win a $50 bar tab (perhaps for the next celebratory bender), which can go toward daily drink specials including Tuesday's $3 rails and Jag shots from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Tuesdays, 8 p.m. Starts: Sept. 4. Continues through Nov. 11, 2007
