Food & Drink

Beer busses, beer races, and Soundset, oh my


Friday, May 24thMPR's Wits plays host to Colin Hanks and Jason Isbell AND Har Mar Superstar at 8p, so that's pretty cool. Snag your seats

Want more Friday? Then head to First Ave for the late '90s dance party Forever Young Prom at 9p. Just don't let it be like your actual prom by showing up ticketless

Saturday, May 25th:Hit Great Waters Brewing at 11a for a downtown St. Paul running race that eschews timers and "winning" for the promise of a cold beer at the end. It's part of the MN Brewery Running Series, which you'd know more about if you clicked here

Should your post-race beers at Great Waters leave you wanting more, hit the City Pages Beer Festival at 10th & Hennepin in Minneapolis. Tickets are waiting for you, here

At 10p, Bryant Lake Bowl hosts Joseph Scrimshaw and his latest one-man comedic romp about his obsession with James Bond. The deets on Obessed

Sunday, May 26th:Atmosphere. Busta Rhymes. Brother Ali. SNOOP DOG (who may now be some other sort of Snoop animal...). All at Canterbury Park for Soundset. Not too late to snag some tix

Get a second wind (or, maybe that'd be like a fourth wind) after the day-long festival? Go to the official Brother Ali-hosted afterparty at First Ave's Mainroom. Buy

Tuesday, May 28th:It's National Burger Day. As a result, anyone named Burger or Hamburger (any spelling) eats free at Smashburger. Find the closest one

Wednesday, May 29th:More from the MN Brewery Running Series. This time it's a 530p start at Fulton. Sign up

Saturday, June 1st:There's a trans-TCs bike race/ brewery crawl called Knick NACCC Alley Cat, Give Yer Dog A Bone. Scope the deets and score your credentials to race, or just drink leisurely whilst biking to-and-fro.

Board a bus in Roseville at 830a, ride it to the North Shore, partake in 20-plus beers at six different microbreweries, get back on the bus and be back in the TCs by 930p. Call it a Saturday. All thanks to the folks at GetKnit. Book your seat ...Or don't call it a Saturday and celebrate with The Growler Magazine, who're throwing themselves a one-year b-day bash behind their HQ in St. Paul from 12-8p. This biz is free!

Sunday, June 2nd:Grand Old Day, 40th anniversary edition. Scope it
