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 >>

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 >>

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 >>

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 >>

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 >>

Real Haunted Tours

Mounds Theatre : 5:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. every Fri., Sat., Sun. until November 1

Phalen Tours, Haunted Houses, Halloween

Transmission

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 >>

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 >>

2014 Trail of Terror

Trail of Terror : 7:00 p.m. - 12:30 a.m. every Fri., Sat. until November 1

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!

Sally Wingert's impressive 2014 continues with Theatre Latte Da's production of Terrance McNally's award-winning play. The piece is exactly what the title promises: a master class. In this case it is led by Maria Callas, the famed mid-20th century opera singer. As the character leads a class of... More >>

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 >>

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 >>

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 >>

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 >>

Firkin Fridays

Grumpy's Bar & Grill : 4:00 p.m. every Fri.

Folks looking to start the weekend a little early may want to check in with Grumpy's Firkin Fridays. Each week, the bar sets up snack food and a cask-conditioned beer to be enjoyed by all until it's gone. What kind of beer? That varies, as the brew is usually announced the day of the event via...

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 >>

Disco Fever

Kitty Cat Klub : 9:00 p.m. last Sat. of every month

As titles go, 'Disco Fever' misleadingly sounds like the name of a K-Tel compilation or a roller-boogie b-movie from 1979 -- right before disco itself collapsed and went from inescapable fad to pop-culture pariah. But we live in a better tomorrow, where Chic's Nile Rodgers still plays on... 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 >>
