The Comedy Corner Open Mic Night

The Corner Bar : 10:00 p.m. every Fri.

In 2009, a quirk of the Minneapolis liquor code that required special licensing to perform standup comedy temporarily put a halt to the Comedy Corner Underground's Friday night open mic and threatened other comedy shows around town. After local comedians worked with the city government to amend... More >>

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. This is not what you will actually find at the Vegas Lounge in Northeast, though, oddly enough, one night I did see a dead ringer for... More >>

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

Beauty is Everything: Vincente Minnelli Film Series

Heights Theater : 7:30 p.m. every Thu. until August 28

When moviegoers grumble about how "they don't make 'em like they used to," there may be an urge to dismiss the critique as a tiresome indicator of ossified taste. These complainers would almost certainly win some converts, however, by taking in a screening from Beauty Is Everything: Vincent... More >>

For many Minnesotans, warmer weather means at least one trip to Shakopee with friends. Some drive out to Valleyfair, others to the Renaissance Festival, and then there are the folks who get excited for horse racing season at Canterbury Park. Events kicked off last weekend, but Memorial Day... More >>

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.

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 >>

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 >>

Open Blues Jam with Moses Oakland

Famous Dave's BBQ & Blues Uptown : 8:00 p.m. every Sun. until August 3; 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 >>

Amber Preston

The Joke Joint Comedy Club : 7:30 p.m. August 2

Telling jokes in Los Angeles is a little different from telling them in the Midwest, says comedian Amber Preston. Crowds out West really enjoy the fact that she comes from Fargo. "People seem to get a kick out of hearing me talk about that, but I don't really tweak anything for L.A. audiences.... 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...

Transmission

The Varsity Theater : 10:00 p.m. last Wed. of every month

"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 >>

Hotpants

Nomad World Pub : 9:00 p.m. third Sat. of every month

1971's "Hot Pants (She Got to Use What She Got to Get What She Wants)" was one of several immortal singles from James Brown's early '70s run of heavy, J.B.'s-era classics. The same funk factory cranked out Vicki Anderson's saucy "I'm Too Tough for Mr. Big Stuff (Hot Pants)" the same year, and... More >>

Acadia 64

Acadia Cafe : 8:00 p.m. - 12:30 a.m. every Tue.

So, trivia is not your strength, bingo takes too much concentration, and poetry slams are just too much work. What about video games? For those who spent entire summers indoors fighting Trevelyan on a platform in the jungle or college evenings speeding along Rainbow Road instead of studying,... 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 >>

Leaning Tower Happy Hours

Leaning Tower Of Pizza : 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. daily

Of the many bars scattered along Lyndale Avenue, the Leaning Tower of Pizza is one that truly feels like a neighborhood bar. There's parking across the street by the laundromat, but it is usually pretty empty because most customers walk or bike over for the evening. While many patrons stick to... More >>

Daily Happy Hour

Common Roots Cafe : 3:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. daily

Common Roots is unusual in the Twin Cities in that it is one of a few locations around town that not only serves up the good coffee and pastries one would expect to find at an internet café, but offers tasty meals and good brew as well. Even better? When you're dining here, it's on... More >>

It's that time of year again. When the heat rises and folks from the cities, the suburbs, and beyond come to downtown and south Minneapolis in search of art. As usual, they will find this at three enormous art festivals this weekend. The Uptown Art Fair is the biggest of the trio, with over 350... More >>

Muddy Waters Bar & Eatery : 3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. daily

Fans and residents of the Wedge neighborhood will remember Muddy Waters as the coffee shop mainstay at the corner of 24th Street and Lyndale Avenue. And while rent was one of the reasons the shop left the space, instead of shutting down completely it moved down the street and expanded its... More >>

Don't try to order up a Surly at the Herkimer; this joint actually makes their own beers. And though some brews are better than others, most are pretty decent.
