MPLS Pizza Week
This weeklong event kicked off yesterday, and features pizza parties in the Twin Cities and beyond. While some of these events will cost you a pretty penny, many are free to attend. Tuesday's Pizza Night at the Fulton Taproom will offer beer and eats from the Vito Lucco Foodtruck. On Wednesday, stop by Up-Down Bar Arcade on Lyndale for old-school arcade games and pinball, food and drink, and prizes. Or test your pie knowledge with Trivia Mafia's pizza trivia at Carbone’s Cedar Avnue location on Thursday evening. For a complete list of happenings, visit the event Facebook page.
Enjoy the last days of warm weather by drinking outside with friends both human and canine. Come out for food and drink specials, pick up stuff for yourself and your pup (dog toys, bandanas, leashes, pocket maps of local dog parks and dog-friendly breweries). There will also be a pool set up should your fur baby be amenable to swimming. Some proceeds will benefit Carver Scott Humane Society. RSVP here. The Freehouse, 701 N. Washington Ave., Ste 101, Minneapolis; 612-339-7011. Tuesday, 5-9 p.m.
