All signs point to a big finish in 2016 for Jordan Brand. The sneaker giant has 3 major releases in December including the above “Suede” premiums 11s. These dropped exclusively through 2 retailers a couple of weeks ago, but it appears that they will be going global on December 23rd. The $400 price tag might provide collectors strapped for cash with a few tough decisions, check back in for more info as we get closer to the release date.
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 Fall!
The Twin Cities metro has it’s fair share of culinary gems, but one step further into the true suburbs might surprise you. One such low key institution is Lions Tap in Eden Prairie. Dating back to 1933, the place has come a long way transforming into one of the top 500 restaurants in the nation. Craft beer? Yup, they’ve been brewing their own for decades. Burgers? Yup, they offer 6 varieties including Bacon Cheese, Mushroom Swiss, and California; all of which come in single or double. Throw in a basket of fries and you’ve got a damn good meal at just under $10. The “after soccer game” vibe isn’t so bad once your food has arrived, if you happen to find yourself out by Valley Fair or Mystic Lake Casino, I’d highly recommend a visit.

As Minneapolis’ bar scene becomes more and more introverted, the old diamonds in the rough are beginning to reclaim their old shine. Dive bars like Liquor Lyle’s, Mortimer’s, Gringo’s & C.C Club are busier than ever proving that it’s not all about the trendy spots. Situated on 28th Street and Lyndale Avenue in Minneapolis’ Lyn-Lake neighborhood, the C.C Club maintains a staple, statue like presence in the area. Popular for it’s happy hour specials (2 for 1s) the corner bar also serves up some damn good “dive” food (cheese curds, burgers etc). Pool tables, dart boards, and video games complete the scene; along with plenty of thirsty locals looking to have a good time. A perfect place to pregame or grab a last call, don’t be surprised if you bump into someone you know after a few visits. If you’re ever near 28th & Lyndale and in need of a drink, stop on into the C.C Club.
