While the big Twin Cities Pride Festival kicks off at Loring Park on Saturday, those looking to do a little pre-event celebrating should be sure to check out the Beer Dabbler at Twin Cities Pride. Here, beer lovers will be able to sample craft brews from 25 local breweries, including Bad Weather Brewing Company, Dangerous Man, and Boom Island. Tasty food will also be part of the evening, with food trucks and carts from the likes of Natedog's Quality Wieners, A Cupcake Social, Hola Arepa, Anchor Fish and Chips, Chef Shack, and others. Tickle Torture, Koo Koo Kanga Roo, and Apollo Cobra will set the soundtrack with live sets during the party. Designated drivers will be treated to cold-press coffee from Flamenco Organic Coffee. Is everyone in your group planning on drinking? Be sure to download a bus pass so that you can ride safely to and from the event via Metro Transit. For more info, visit www.thebeerdabbler.com.
