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.
In 1962, Lawrence William Yanz opened Hastings Bierstube, where he dished out German delicacies such as bratwursts, Reubens, and 6-ounce sirloin steaks. After his passing in 1983, his sons, Jim and Mike, started two new locations before forming a fourth with a family friend. The sons expanded Hastings Bierstube’s already extensive menu, introducing the Taste of Deutschland sampler platter, which features a selection of wienerschnitzel, sauerbraten, and house-made spaetzle.
Along with slinging authentic cuisine, the owners send lucky diners on vacations to Germany during giveaways, which fall on special occasions such as Oktoberfest and David Hasslehoff’s half birthday. For visitors remaining on American shores, the restaurants host weekly events, including bingo, open mics, karaoke, and live music.
