The Bungalow

The Record Room : 10:00 p.m. every Thu.

Friday night gets all the love, Wednesday night has its nudge-wink "hump day" cachet and everyone hates Mondays so much that there's no choice but to go out and wash that start-of-the-week ennui away. But what about Thursday, the day of the week where people are most likely to put... More >>

Reina del Cid & the Cidizens

Amsterdam : 9:00 p.m. every Mon.

When you hear the name Reina del Cid, you may think Latin music, but it truly is not the case with the Minneapolis singer. A stage name taken because she named her guitar "El Cid," (a knight) the artist came to the conclusion that she would be the "Reina," meaning queen in Spanish. Reina spent... More >>

Get Cryphy!

The Record Room : 10:00 p.m. first Fri. of every month

We may be a few years past the point where crunk and hyphy are the hot-trend hip hop subgenres, but First Ave's recurring "Get Cryphy!" night isn't just a matter of trying to find new life in a couple aging styles by portmanteauing them together. Jimmy2Times¬, Plain Ole Bill, DJ Fundo and... More >>

Weekday Happy Hours

Spill the Wine : Every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sun.

Although there's plenty of great dining to be had in the Lyn-Lake region of south Minneapolis, the neighborhood was missing a bar specializing in wine.

Acadia Cafe's Beer-tastic Happy Hour

Acadia Cafe : 4:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri.

For reasons I will never understand, the number of places around the city that offer wi-fi and beer are sparse. However, the ones that do are spectacular. Acadia Café is certainly an example of a great place where you can check your email, write a school paper, and talk politics with... More >>

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.

Toys of the '50s, '60s, and '70s

Minnesota History Center : Every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until January 4

Vegas Lounge Karaoke

Vegas Lounge : 9:00 p.m. every Tue., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun.

If you were to guess the vibe of the Vegas Lounge based solely on the name, you might expect to find a bar with a retro "Rat Pack" style. But you would be wrong.

Christian Marclay: The Clock

Walker Art Center : Daily until August 25

When a moviegoer alludes to "watching the time" it's not typically indicative of a particularly engaging film. Unless, of course, the film in question is visual artist Christian Marclay's The Clock.

Art Expanded, 1958–1978

Walker Art Center : Daily 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.

Hot Dish Happy Hour

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

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 >>
