The Growler Magazine 2nd Birthday Beer Bash
(Nomad World Pub, 501 Cedar Ave. S., Minneapolis, 612-338-6424,

This event was going to be at Taste of Minnesota. However, due to flooding, the b-day party and the festival had to relocate. While Taste is heading way out of town, the Growler siply moved one city over to party at the Nomad World Pub. This Thursday, you'll be invited to celebrate the bi-monthly beer mag as a party that features a silent disco (you dance while listening to your iPod. No, it's not embarrassing. Actually, yes, it kind of is), food trucks, a screening of a beer-themed film on the JumboTron, special offerings from craft breweries, and more. Thursday, 6-10 p.m.
