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 >>

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 >>

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 >>

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 >>

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 >>

Balls

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 >>

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 >>

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

The Wolf of Walmart

Any fears that Brave New Workshop would lose something essential in the 2011 move from its longtime and somewhat grungy digs Uptown to the new, far more slick downtown location have been calmed by the company's continued high quality. The troupe — whose history stretches back to founder... More >>

Karaoke Night

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. Step inside and you will find a long bar filled with disco balls, giant football helmets, and electric rodents drinking... 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 : 8:00 p.m. every Thu., Fri. until August 1; 10:30 p.m. August 1; 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 >>

West St. Paul Comedy

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 >>

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. 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 >>

Herkimer Pub & Brewery : 3:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. daily; 10:00 p.m. - 2:00 a.m. every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Sun.

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. 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 >>

Barrio Tequila Bar & Cafe : 10:00 p.m. - 2:00 a.m. every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu.; 3:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri.

Yes, it's true that most people have a tequila story that isn't one they like to remember. Usually it involves college and too many shots after already having too many beers. The following morning, the survivor will hold the notorious hard liquor solely responsible, swearing it off completely... More >>
