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 >>

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 >>

The Cowles Center for Dance & the Performing Arts : 8:00 p.m. every Fri., Sat. until November 30; 2:00 p.m. every Sun. from November 30 until November 30

The overall theme of Zenon's fall concert boils down to some fairly abstract ideas given vibrantly concrete form by the superb Zenon dancers. Cuban choreographer Osnel Delgado's "Coming Home" mines baseball metaphors and gestures to find common ground between cultures through the rhythms and... More >>

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

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.

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 >>

Hotpants

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

"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 by the... 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?

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 >>

Happy Hour at Great Waters Brewing Company

Great Waters Brewing Company : 3:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri.; 10:00 p.m. - 2:00 a.m. every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sun.

There are several things that made Great Waters Brewing Company's debut auspicious. First, the idea for a brew pub that makes its own beer came about after the owner, Sean O'Byrne, lost his job to corporate downsizing. Then the pub opened on the most intense day of the year for bars: St.... 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.

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 >>

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 >>

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 >>

Good things happen at Barbette on Monday evenings. It's is the start of the weeknight happy hour, which runs from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. through Friday.

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.
