Celebrating nearly 40 years in business, Tiffany Sports Lounge offers a friendly neighborhood spot for knocking a few back while munching on a variety of hearty, non-radioactive menu items. Silence grumbling stomachs with meaty plates of meat, such as the cheeseburger made with Black Angus beef ($8.95) and the KU smoked beef brisket sandwich ($9.50). Or repel a gaggle of aggressive penguins with a fiery basket of el diablo wings ($8.95). Instead of accidentally creating a batch of colorless petroleum distillate with a home brewery kit, down potent pours of tasty beer that won’t set sweaters on fire. In addition to curing empty bellies with delectable eats, Tiffany's treats aural ailments and bipedal depletion with live music (resuming in September) and a free shuttle to Gophers, Vikings, Twins, and Wild home games, just like at the doctor’s office.
A modern mixed-media collaboration, Bridgman/Packer Dance is the brainchild of Art Bridgman and Myrna Packer, two collaborating choreographers, performers, and Guggenheim Fellows who have spent more than 30 years turning the dance duet on its head with trippy video effects. On this particular evening, the duo will showcase two of their latest works: Double Expose, a raucously sensual journey into the psyche's surreal mindscapes, and Under the Skin, an aesthetic adventure that viscerally challenges ideas of identity as images of the dancers multiply to fill the stage. To deepen the multi-sensory immediacy of each work, the dancers will be integrated with video projections, including animation, live camerawork, and prerecorded footage.
Located in the Dayton’s Bluff area, historic Mounds Theatre is a great spot to experience live theatre, movies, and occasional paranormal encounters. Knotareel Getaway Cruise is an interactive dinner-theater production written by Greg Eiden that features musical comedy and a gaggle of mimicking pirate parrots all named Polly. You’ll ward off scurvy thanks to the show’s dinner menu, which offers roasted chicken with herb vinaigrette, fettuccine or linguine (tossed with olive oil, fresh basil, and garlic), vegetable medley, field green salad, and chef’s choice dessert. You’ll also be supporting a good cause since the theater is home to the Portage for Youth, a nonprofit organization serving disadvantaged youth that collaborates with arts and cultural groups.
Lululemon Athletica is a unique store which makes clothing for yoga, Pilates, and fitness in general. The founder, Chip Wilson, who has a passion for technical athletic fabrics, noticed that cotton fabric wasn’t ideal to wear for stretchy power yoga. From that revelation the company was born and started an underground movement selling yoga clothing. The selection of clothing is continuously updated and includes pants, skirts, tops, jackets, sports bras, and much more. For men, features include stink-free gear, post sweat, and no sweat. Ivivva athletica is a line of clothing offered by Lululemon that is especially for girls between the ages of 6 and 15. The Ivivva products are of the same quality fabrics used by Lululemon. Anyone with a passion for fitness should check out the products at Lululemon Athletica.
The Dubliner Pub has been quietly amassing a loyal fan base since 1983, but it wasn't quiet enough for City Pages not to notice. The city guide awarded the beloved watering hole the title Best Irish Pub in 2013, calling it "an authentic Irish bar without the frills or gimmicks." Visitors to the veteran spot can witness what the publication is talking about––six nights a week, live Irish music fills the space as patrons sip on pints of Guinness, Magners Cider, and local brews from Surly and Summit. Daily events fill the calendar, including Sunday's Brain Blasting Pub Quiz and Wednesday's Irish Ceili dancing, while free batches of fresh popcorn pair perfectly with drafts.
