Best Mini Golf Course
Can Can Wonderland
In these grim times, we need a dash of whimsy. Believe it or not, folks can find it in an old warehouse in the Hamline Midway neighborhood. Can Can Wonderland has spectacle in spades. When the crew requested artist proposals for holes, over 200 applications came in. The team’s curation paid off. Its 18-hole golf course is filled with magic, including giant pink creatures, tongue-flicking frogs, and a glowing miniature Ferris wheel. It’s like H.R. Pufnstuf befriended Willy Wonka and they decided to hang out in a basement. Graffiti-style murals give the space a more modern feel, with an arty vibe from the occasional old couch and miscellaneous clown macrame. If you like imbibing, order craft cocktails from Bittercube, canned wine, beer, and boozy sno-cones from one of two bars. If sugar is your vice, get a malt made with the cereal of your choice. Carnival-style edibles are also on the menu here.
