  • Wood Lake Nature Center
    Wood Lake housed the antics of swimmers and boaters until the 1950s, when most of its water drained away. In the years since, it has transformed into the 150-acre year-round Wood Lake Nature Center, where 3 miles of trails and wooden boardwalks meander through three defined natural habitats. Visitors can immerse themselves in wildlife at a cattail freshwater marsh, mixed lowland forest, and restored prairie; view creatures from a wildlife observation shelter and docks; and witness performances and lectures in a 100-seat outdoor amphitheater. In a more than 4,000-square-foot interpretive center, on-staff naturalists guide guests through educational programs focused on plants, animals, and ecosystems while fielding questions such as why bears hibernate and how to beat an owl in a staring contest. Staff members showcase natural splendor through a range of indoor and outdoor seasonal events, such as Earth Day craft projects, family-friendly Halloween festivities, and winter festivities around New Year's. In the summer, counselors lead day camps during which children can explore the marsh with bug nets, learn how to use binoculars, and build forts in the forest. While Wood Lake Nature Center welcomes exploration, pets, bikes, rollerblades, and giant hamster balls are prohibited to ensure the preservation of local habitats.

  • Pig and Fiddle
    Hailed by StarTribune writer Tom Horgen as “two guys who know their beer,” Mark van Wie and Paul Schatz have worked for the last decade to put their pub The Muddy Pig on the maps of local and international beer connoisseurs. At their second venture, The Pig & Fiddle, they have raised the bar even higher with 36 beers on draft—including a slew of Belgian-style brews—to go with chef Stephanie Kochlin’s menu of European-inspired pub fare. Each day from 4:00 p.m. until 1:00 a.m., Chef Kochlin prepares hearty dinner entrees using recipes gathered from rustic European locales and cooking oils derived from melted Renaissance paintings. Along with artisanal cheeses, house-prepared meats, and boiled pierogi, the kitchen specializes in European pasties—pouch-shaped pies filled with roasted lamb and house-made pickles. Aside from the nightly dinner menu, The Pig & Fiddle frequently curates events such as special dinners with course-by-course beer pairings.

  • Stanley's Northeast Bar Room
    In the shapes of fruit, forest creatures, and frothing pint glasses, tap handles at Stanley's Northeast Bar Room stand out against the brick walls. The ranks of colorful silhouettes hint at the varied flavors of the 30 rotating draft beers, which may include Sierra Nevada’s Southern Hemisphere crafted with fresh New Zealand hops or New Belgium cocoa mole ale with guajillo and ancho peppers. Bottles click together, releasing foamy tears of brew from Deschutes, Flying Dog, Chimay, and Ommegang and punctuating the bustle of tastings and the murmur of dinner conversation. The menu complements the beer list with half-pound burgers such as the Hangover Cure, which is topped with an egg, bacon, and gouda cheese. In the kitchen, chefs also cloak walleye fillets in beer batter and parmesan, and simmer a sauce of beer and cheese for mac ‘n’ cheese. Stanley’s food truck rolls around town, serving a variety of barbecue and tacos to pedestrians and robots stuck in “jog perpetually” mode.

  • Knockout Bodies
    Running on a treadmill and blasting through the same reps over and over again can become monotonous. But at Knockout Bodies, the enthusiastic instructors focus on making working out fun. They help gals of all fitness levels chisel rock-solid bodies in alternative fitness classes, which range from pole dancing to kickboxing to Zumba. In pole-fitness classes, they help ladies develop core and upper-body strength as they sensually twist and turn around poles. They also lead high-energy kickboxing classes that motivate students to tone muscles as they learn basic self-defense moves to take down assailants or large stuffed animals that look like assailants without the lights on. Students burn copious calories in Zumba classes, which set easy-to-follow aerobic dance moves to infectious Latin-inspired tunes. When not leading empowering classes, the instructors open the studio for parties to celebrate birthdays or bachelorette festivities.
