Cornbread Harris

Loring Pasta Bar : 6:00 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 >>

While some haunted houses go for psychological scares, and others are just mildly spooky because they're intended for kids, the Butcher Shop House of Gore is all about gross. Imagine a horror flick from the mid-'80s where the special-effects guy really went overboard, and you have the general... 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 >>

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 >>

Weekday Happy Hours

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

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 >>

Acadia Cafe's Beer-tastic Happy Hour

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

This group exhibition of New York-based artists Joshua Abelow, Sadie Laska, MacGregor Harp, and Adrianne Rubenstein brings a batch of renegade talent to the Twin Cities.

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. The 1960s and '70s instigated all manner of confrontational expression through art heavy with the freedom of possibility. A new show at... More >>

The Automatic Message

Instinct Art Gallery : Daily until November 1

In the best abstract art, the personal is universal, the abstraction an archetype, and simplicity a statement of complexity. How the artist’s psyche plays into this methodology is the subject of Instinct Gallery’s “The Automatic Message,” which takes a cue from that... More >>
