The Dogwood Coffee Bar is one of the premier places to get a cup of joe. Freshly roasted beans and experienced baristas make for a great local brew. Located in the heart of uptown, Dogwood coffee can often times be overlooked by all the other shops. It doesn’t help that they put the coffee bar in the mall, which makes it rather hard to see from the outside. When it comes down to it, the Dogwood Coffee Company certainly knows their stuff. Each individual cup of coffee is brewed with care through a “manual” brewing process, where they use a Chemex coffee maker or a Clever Coffee Dripper. Dogwood coffee is freshly roasted in NE, Minneapolis, making for some of the best beans around. This is a highly recommended stop for coffee drinkers.

As the anticipation builds for Vic Mensa’s new album, The Autobiography: As Told By Vic Mensa, He’s followed his critically acclaimed mixtape with what appears to be a first single. Titled “Wings,” the record features 2 legendary artists in Pharrell Williams and Saul Williams, no relation. Over the years Vic has really showed us that is as versatile as any artist out there, “Wings” is another example of how his technical songwriting continues to expand. Still a half decade away from 30, Vic Mensa’s journey thus far has been enthralling to say the least. If “Wings” is an indicator of what to expect from his upcoming album, lets just say he’s raised the bar. Check it out below and stay tuned for more from Vic Mensa.
