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 >>

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 >>

Toys of the '50s, '60s, and '70s

Minnesota History Center : Every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until January 4

Beyond nostalgic associations, toys of the past offer fascinating cultural insights, as evidenced by the Minnesota History Center's newest exhibit, "Toys of the '50s, '60s, and '70s."

Back in 2009, when Bedlam was on the West Bank, they put on a magical, absurdist little pile of laughs called Foxy Tann's Beaverdance. The show was a mix of burlesque, Marxist philosophy, and goofiness, complete with Tann directing the hilarious antics, which included a sexy brigade of... More >>

How lovely, a remembrance abstracted and remade from our warmer weather during a time when we're replete with sun, fresh vegetables, and flowering perennials.

The overall theme of Zenon's fall concert boils down to some fairly abstract ideas given vibrantly concrete form by the superb Zenon dancers.

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 >>

Though promoted as a breezily irreverent comedy revue, the Brave New Workshop's annual holiday show can also be counted upon to provide a suitably absurd chronicle of our fleeting cultural obsessions. One needn't possess a sociology degree, for example, to surmise the farcical inspiration... 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 >>

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 >>

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 >>

Weekday Happy Hours

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

Although there's plenty of great dining to be had in the Lyn-Lake region of south Minneapolis, the neighborhood was missing a bar specializing in wine.
