The Minnesota State Fair is one of those annual events that I look forward to each year for many reasons. You’ve heard us talk about the “Great Minnesota Get-Together” before, so I’ll spare you all the reasons why I think it’s an event not to be missed. Instead, I’d like to talk about one of […]
I know we really should stay away from politics on this site, as it never ends well. But I consider this to be less about politics and more a “people watching” exercise. I think Michelle Bachmann is nuts and despite your views politically, you have to admit she’s said some REALLY fucked up shit over […]
I usually don’t post things of this nature, but it’s too damn awesome to keep to myself. This is Dennis LeRoy Anderson. He’s a resident of Proctor, MN and at the age of 61, may have accomplished one of the most hilarious things I’ve heard of yet. We have a fascination with small town drunks […]
Zombies and drinking? A match made in Drunken Gamers heaven! This place opened up near “Nordeast” Minneapolis a few months ago and we love it so much that we took Phil to check it out…twice. Donny Dirk’s Zombie Den is located just off I94 and Broadway in North Minneapolis. Not the best neighborhood. In fact, […]
There are few things more exhilarating than being introduced to hidden gems and wonderful treasures located throughout our city. At the same time, being introduced to these things can make one wonder aloud, “How the hell did I not know about this?” Such is the case with the Heights Theater, located in Columbia Heights, a […]
I sold the idea of this movie to Hilden and Moe by saying, “Hey, you wanna go see a Swedish vampire flick?” Of course they said yes. But by the time we came out of the Riverview (best theater in town, by the way), we realized that Let the Right One In is more than merely a Swedish vampire flick, it’s a surprisingly deep and compelling story about a bullied kid named Oskar and the relationship he develops with the mysterious new girl in his apartment building. Most vampire movies tend to be blood-fests consisting of gory kills and dramatic plot points about the high cost of immortality. And while LTROI does contain those themes, the way in which they are presented, and the performances of the brilliant child actors brings this movie to the top of the genre.
We all spend hours lamenting the death of proper arcades in the United States. The dark, quarter-munching game halls have mostly been boarded up and forgotten or replaced by giant bowling alley/redemption machine/food and drink establishments like Dave & Busters, GameWorks, and now Brunswick Zone. Brunswick Zones have been around for a while, operating mainly […]
[This one’s for Torgo.] My biggest regret of moving to the suburbs is the complete lack of any sort of history. 99% of everything out here was built less than fifteen years ago. There isn’t a good bar in Burnsville, there isn’t a single “mom n’ pop” shop in Burnsville, and the restaurants are almost […]
