Pappy’s

   

Where: 2006 Washington Ave N Minneapolis, MN 55411 (Right off of Broadway & 94)
Phone: (612) 522-0011
Hours: 8am-?

Although Pappy’s is no secret, we had to put em on. The place claims to be a Chicago style restaurant specializing in Chicago style dogs and Italian beef sandwiches. Even though these may be some of their specialty foods, they have an endless menu including catfish, omelets, cheesesteaks, and a variety of chicken wings. They don’t have a website for us to link them to, so hear me out when I say this place is legit. Expect to spend anywhere from $2-7 at Pappy’s, and you will get a damn good meal in return. Also, check out their $2.99 breakfast special which includes eggs, hash-browns and one of a kind toast.

All City Vol. 4

Without further adieu, we present All City Vol. 4. A little tighter than previous installments, this mix flies by with a variety of artists from the Twin Cities and beyond. We hope you enjoy what we’ve compiled, press play and make sure to keep an eye out for All City 5 this Spring!

Location: 2506A Central Ave NE Minneapolis, MN 55418
Hours: M/W/TH: 4-11 | TU: CLOSED | FR: 4-12 | SA: 12-12 | SU: 12-9

Last year, Fair State Brewing Cooperative emerged in Northeast Minneapolis. The co-op brewery is Minnesota’s first, and also happens to be one of the very few in the United States. Everything about the brewery is community driven, as they offer a variety of benefits.

What exactly does a co-op brewery have to offer, you might ask? Well, quite a bit if you want to purchase a share of the brewery and become a member. The cost, $200. If you are a beer nerd, this is actually a VERY fair price. Members will have first dibs on new releases, special discount on happy hours, the ability to have recipe input and voting rights within the brewery (and many other features). For the full article and definition listings, click HERE. Also, if you aren’t a Minnesota resident, don’t bother trying to buy a share, because you must be a resident.

Speculation Building On Who Will Replace Daniel Craig In The Next James Bond Film

bond

With Daniel Craig (Layer Cake, Quantum of Solace) sadly stepping down from the role, speculation continues to circle the web as to who is going to replace him as the world’s most famous spy. Although MGM had reportedly offered Craig £68 million for a further two films, plus shares, inside reports have stated that Craig is simply done with the role, and is moving on. And so now must producers Barbara Broccoli (GoldenEye, The World is Not Enough) and Michael G. Wilson (For Your Eyes Only, License to Kill), along with the heads at MGM, decide on a new actor to further the franchise. The favored choice, at least according to all the rumors, is Avengers and High-Rise actor Tom Hiddleston, who has thus far denied all of the rumors, but who, I’m sure, is not completely against the idea. Another name that has come up is Aiden Turner (The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Poldark), but according to a more recent report from the Daily Mail, Billy Eliot and Nymphomaniac star Jamie Bell is in actual talks with the producers to take over the role. Bond producer Barbara Broccoli is behind Bell’s upcoming 2017 release Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool with Julie Walters (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, Brave) and Annette Bening (American Beauty, Danny Collins), and has supposedly been a fan of Bell’s for some time. This is, of course, all speculation, but considering the already existing link between Broccoli and Bell, it’s fairly reasonable to assume that this is a possibility. I think the main concern that fans of the franchise will have is not what face is portraying Bond (Bell, or whoever it is will be the 7th actor), but in what direction the character will be taken. Craig’s Bond took the character right back to square one and readapted him for post 9/11 audiences. But having brought the character back full circle at the conclusion of Skyfall, and further stepping into territory familiar in Ian Fleming‘s original novels with Spectre, will the next actor simply be expected to carry on in the way Craig has been going, or will audiences, once again, have to watch a completely new actor develop an entirely new character? Only time will tell.

B.B. King Documentary ‘The Life of Riley’ Now Available on NetFlix

Director John Brewer (Jimi Hendrix: The Guitar Hero, Nat King Kole: Afraid of the Dark) released his documentary on the late B.B. King back in 2012, but it wasn’t released in the US officially until 2014. That said, the film, titled The Life of Riley (B.B. King’s name was Riley B. King), is now available on Netflix. Narrated by Morgan Freeman (The Shawshank Redemption, The Dark Knight), the film features a plethora of musicians, friends, and family, who discuss B.B. King’s long and revolutionary career as an American bluesman, including Buddy Guy, Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana, Ringo Starr, Bono, Ronnie Wood, Dr. John, and Solomon Burke. B.B. King hailed from the flat delta land in Mississippi and eventually made his way to Memphis, Tennessee, where he began regular work as a blues artist. He secured a number of record deals, and when rock music took off in the ’60s, a new interest in King’s and other blues artists of his era as they had never experienced before. His profound influence on many rock artists, including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and Cream, can forever be heard at the root of these bands’ music. He would go on to play with many famous musicians throughout the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s, recording albums like Live at the Regal and recording perhaps his most famous song, The Thrill Is Gone. But despite his great fame, B.B. King always held true to his humble roots, plowing a farm in the Mississippi Delta, and surrounded by the racial segregation and social unrest of the time. Now, most of you probably read these movie posts and think, “I’ll remember it for the RedBox,” or something along those lines. But if you have a Netflix account (and I know you do) you should really sit down and watch this documentary. I promise, you won’t regret it.
