BEST PLACE TO MEET SINGLE WOMEN (GAY) - 2008
Pi Bar and Restaurant
Tucked into a quiet corner of south Minneapolis, Pi Bar and Restaurant has been making the best of its inaugural year. There are great daily drink specials, including $2 domestic bottled beer on Fridays and half-price bottles of wine on Mondays. And Pi is home to some of the best bar food in town (its Mozzarella Lady Fingers could've easily won Best Fried Mozzarella), served by a staff both friendly and capable. But despite its name, the place is more than a bar and restaurant—it's an entertainment and community center for the Cities' lesbian community. In addition to having served as a main hub for the 2007 Pride Festival, Pi keeps a busy schedule of movie, trivia, karaoke, and dance nights. A side room houses a spacious pool parlor where it's free to play from 4 p.m. till 8 p.m.
