Adam DeGross is our favorite concert photographer in Minnesota and in our humble opinion, he’s also one of the best. He recently covered Soundset and has been releasing photos steadily via Twitter and Instagram. Above you’ll find shots of Gucci Mane, Travis Scott, Mod Sun, Playboi Carti and more; keep an eye on his Instagram as he continues to release photos.
A lot of people would argue that sushi is not only food, but an art form. Milan based artist and chef, Yujia Hu, has been putting his own spin on the Japanese cuisine dubbed “Shoe-Shi.” As the name implies he delicately arranges and constructs his pieces in the shapes on shoes, some of which being iconic models from brands like Nike and Adidas. These are all 100% edible, but it’s really more about the art for Hu. Check out a few of his creations above and peep his Facebook for more.
Location: 917 Cedar Avenue, Minneapolis When: Saturday, June 10th @ 6PM

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.
Tyler The Creator’s album, Cherry Bomb, was yet another signal that the young artist is indeed one of hip hop’s most creative and dynamic. Whether it’s music, fashion, acting, or directing, Tyler has certainly established himself across a variety of mediums. His latest work comes in collaboration with Mikey123xyz, a California based clothing designer and director. Mikey documented Tyler during the process of finalizing Cherry Bomb and the road to it’s release. An interesting behind the scenes look, you can view the documentary in it’s entirety above.
