Finding a happy hour on the weeknights is pretty easy, and even Sunday brunch can be cheap and boozy if you Google the right place. Saturday-afternoon happy hour, on the other hand, is a slightly rarer thing. Sushi Tango actually has one, and it happens during the desirable hours of noon to 6... More >>

If the hardest of minerals can only be created under the most extreme of pressure, perhaps our Greatest Generation could only be forged in the toughest of times.

International Reggae All-Stars

Bunker's Music Bar & Grill : 9:00 p.m. every Tue.

Make all the jokes you want about the climate differences between Kingston and Minneapolis, but the cultural ones aren't as hard to reconcile.

Rick Bronson's House of Comedy : 7:30 p.m. daily until January 30; 9:45 p.m. January 30; 7:00 p.m. January 31

Sam Tripoli is well known for his caustic style, but beneath his politically incorrect manner are some solid jokes. "My ex-girlfriend got deported," he tells an audience. "It's crazy how a call to immigration can give you closure." Just as well. Tripoli hardly has time for such distractions,... More >>

Folks looking to start the weekend a little early may want to check in with Grumpy's Firkin Fridays.

Bondage A-Go-Go

Ground Zero : 10:00 p.m. every Sat.

While there are usually a handful of burlesque shows happening on any given weekend, and Sex World is open 24 hours a day, Bondage A-Go-Go is still one of the most enduring nights dedicated to kinks and sexy subcultures. The crowd can vary depending on the season and the evening, but generally... More >>

Brave New Workshop Downtown Stage : 8:00 p.m. every Fri. until January 31; 7:30 p.m. every Thu. until January 31; 5:00 p.m. every Sat. until January 31

Though promoted as a breezily irreverent comedy revue, the Brave New Workshop's annual holiday show can also be counted upon to provide a suitably absurd chronicle of our fleeting cultural obsessions. One needn't possess a sociology degree, for example, to surmise the farcical inspiration... More >>

Art Expanded, 1958–1978

Walker Art Center : Every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until March 8

It was a heady time of happenings: the dawn of performance art, a stripping way to conceptualism, the onset of video, an introduction to experimental sound. The 1960s and '70s instigated all manner of confrontational expression through art heavy with the freedom of possibility. A new show at... More >>

MN Opera: The Elixir of Love

Ordway Center for the Performing Arts : 7:30 p.m. every Thu., Sat. until January 29; 2:00 p.m. every Sun. until February 1; 8:00 p.m. January 31

The enduring appeal of Gaetano Donizetti's The Elixir of Love can be attributed to an endearing storyline (subsequently lifted by countless rom-coms) in which a poor but virtuous peasant, Nemorino, falls in love with the wealthy Adina. Dogged by a lack of confidence made all the worse by the... More >>

Dr. Mambo's Combo

Bunker's Music Bar & Grill : 9:30 p.m. every Mon., Sun.

1987 was a notable year for Minnesota: the Twins won the World Series, Prince released one of his best albums in Sign 'O' the Times, and St. Louis Park's own Coen Brothers released their first great comedy Raising Arizona. 1987 was also the year that Dr. Mambo's Combo was formed, and it just so...

Clubhouse Jager : 10:00 p.m. every Wed.

"Retro" is a tricky niche to slot a dance night into. Usually you've got to find yourself an era and a genre, hew towards the hits, and maybe garnish it with an outsized wink, a double-pistol-point and a smirking acknowledgement that you think the past is, well, kinda goofy. But Transmission... More >>

Hot Dish Happy Hour

Grumpy's Bar & Grill : 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. every Tue.

Throwing the words "hot dish" together with "happy hour" might sound odd. One usually entails booze, while the other reminds us of Grandma's comfort food. Yet somehow at Grumpy's this combo works spectacularly. Tuesday nights from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. you can load up on the carbs, meats, and... More >>
