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 >>

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 >>

The Nimbus Theater : 7:30 p.m. every Thu., Fri., Sat. until July 26

Before terrorizing readers and moviegoers with the likes of The Books of Blood and Hellraiser, Clive Barker worked in theater.

Post Physical: Visual Reactions to the Post-Internet Age

SOOlocal: A Division of SooVAC : Every Sat., Sun. until August 10

Amid the perplexity of living in — not to mention attempting to define — the age of posts (post-modern, post-post modern, and now post-internet), one might find the mind crumbling under the sheer weight of so much future crammed into the present. Curator Nathaniel Smith, in... More >>

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 >>

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 >>

El Willy's Vive! Open Mic Comedy

Willy's : 10:00 p.m. every Sun.

There's a chance to slip in one more comedy show before the end of the week every Sunday at El Willy's Vive!

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 >>

The Southern Theater : Every Sat.

Barring things like the Minnesota State Fair and the St. Paul Winter Carnival, not many events here in town make it past the 20-year mark. Balls, the beloved Saturday-night open-mic cabaret, is an exception to that rule. Over the decades a variety of performers — from very green, to... 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.

Otter's Saloon : 9:00 p.m. every Mon., Tue., Sun.; 8:00 p.m. every Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat.

The outside of Otter's Saloon features a mural of a dapper otter decked out in a top hat, suit, and bow tie, his googly eyes and martini glass saluting patrons knowingly.

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 >>

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?

Arj Barker

Acme Comedy Co. : 8:00 p.m. daily until July 26; 10:30 p.m. daily until July 26

While Arj Barker headlines comedy clubs and theaters across America, it's in Australia that he's become enormously popular and, as such, he now lives there. Among the things Barker enjoys is the less stressful air-travel experience within the country. "They don't have a version of the TSA, it's... 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 >>

Daily Happy Hour

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.

You can try their best award-winning items easily during happy hour. From 3 to 6 p.m. daily or 10 p.m. to close Sunday-Thursday, you... More >>

Weekday Happy Hour

Pancho Villa Restaurant : Every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri.

Happy hour can be a tricky thing if you work a regular job. Most are over by 6 p.m., so forget it if you're a commuter. And sometimes staying out past 9 p.m. is just not an option. Thankfully, some bars and restaurants have more friendly drink specials and hours. Eat Street's Pancho Villa would... More >>
