Happy Hour at Sushi Tango

Sushi Tango : 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. every Mon., Tue., Wed.; 10:00 p.m. - 2:00 a.m. every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu.; 12:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. every Thu., Fri., Sat.; 12:00 p.m. - 2:00 a.m. every Sun.

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 >>

Jhené Aiko

The Skyway Theatre : 7:00 p.m. December 21

Occupying different spaces within the futurist alternative R&B spectrum, Jhené Aiko, SZA, and the Internet touring together makes a surprising amount of sense. With her recent debut release Souled Out (which ticket-buyers will receive as a free digital download) expanding on the arc of... More >>

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 >>

Claudia Schmidt

F.K. Weyerhaeuser Auditorium : 7:00 p.m. December 19

Claudia Schmidt’s spectacular multi-octave voice is at once luminous and earthy, as sturdy as an oak while as ethereal as the wind blowing through its leaves, as warm as a crackling fire holding off Midwestern chill. Michigan native Schmidt is again living in our midst. With the release... More >>

Open Blues Jam with Moses Oakland

Famous Dave's BBQ & Blues Uptown : 8:00 p.m. every Sun.

Moses Oakland relocated from the Bay Area to the Twin Cities back in 1987, and since then -- well, it'd probably be easier and less space-consuming to list all the venues he hasn't played and the legends he hasn't gigged with. A blues, soul and jazz aficionado well-versed in a wide array of... More >>

Twerking Around the Christmas Tree

Brave New Workshop Downtown Stage : 7:00 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 >>

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

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

Beyond nostalgic associations, toys of the past offer fascinating cultural insights, as evidenced by the Minnesota History Center's newest exhibit, "Toys of the '50s, '60s, and '70s." Toys are cleverly arrayed in three era-specific living rooms and a garage, and each space serves as a time... More >>

Although many restaurants close over the years, few are forced to do so because of fire. This is what happened at Blackbird's original 50th and Bryant location in 2010. A benefit party and a new lease later, the pleasant little restaurant has flourished in its new digs at 38th and Nicollet. The... More >>

Cornbread Harris

Loring Pasta Bar : 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. every Fri.

You might've heard of his son -- a man named Jimmy who teamed up with another man named Terry, the rest being R&B history -- but Cornbread Harris is a Twin Cities legend in his own right. Harris is a WWII vet who joined Augie Garcia to record the area's first rock'n'roll record (1955's "Hi Yo... More >>
