Location: SE 7th St & SE 14th Ave When: Saturday, April 22nd @ Noon
If you haven’t been over to SSSDude-Nutz yet make that a priority for the future. They offer an eccentric, rotating variety of donuts with equally eccentric names like the peanut butter laced “50 Tyson,” or cookies & cream inspired “No Flex Zone.” This Saturday they’ll host a block party with performances from MycDazzle and Madi Wayne, as well as DJ sets from The Breakfast Club, DJ Cilantro, DJ Rowsheen, and DJ Cig AM.

We finally got around to playing this one for the full 44mn of it. The video is spliced and edited to perfection using found footage. If you have some downtime, press play and sit back and vibe with Dilla. This must have taken some serious time to put together. Shout out to Houston Loves J Dilla for putting this tribute out for our enjoyment.
From Homer Simpson to your local police precinct, donuts have become a symbol of the American sweet tooth. Minneapolis has never been known for the ring shaped dessert, but all of that is beginning to change at the feet of Eat Street’s Glam Doll Donuts. Upon entering, you’ll be charmed by the diner/ beauty bar inspiried interior; one look at the selection of donuts and you’ll be completely lost. With names like “The Scream Queen” (double chocolate donut topped with carmalized bacon), “Cosmopolitan Girl” (Chocolate donut with peanut butter icing) and the “Daddy Dearest” (Surly Bender Icing & Cake); one bite will have you second guessing your current relationship. Classics like the Oreo & M&M donuts make appearances, but the “liquor fused” section is where thing’s get crazy. The Bourbon fused Apple Fritter and the Hennessy & berry filled “Night Moves” will have you wondering just how much booze is actually in them. Gourmet is probably the best word to describe the level of quality that is put into each new creation that Glam Doll cooks up, if you have an issue parting with $2-3 per donut (worth every penny); Dunkin’s (good luck) might be a better option for you. All in all, Glam Doll is probably one of the city’s best donut shops; the fact that they provide such a wide variety without sparing quality, establishes them as a local favorite.
The gals at Glam Doll Donuts are once again cooking up a cool event for it’s loving patrons. Tonight they’ll be provided live music, and discounted treats with the secret password “Uptown Swing”. The live performance includes Robert Bell, Rick Carlson, and Josh Granowsk from 2-5PM and there will also be a DJ from 5-7PM. After the event, the gang will head to Uptown Swing for some refreshments and games finishing out what should be a great night.

Minneapolis’ own Lizzo dropped a dope video earlier this week entitled “Batches & Cookies”. The track is the latest offering off of her upcoming project “Lizzo Bangers” and has a quirky yet mesmerizing beat to match the iLL visuals. We got a chance to see this one live at their show last Wednesday and it definitely had the crowd moving. Peep the video above, it’s full of familiar faces and even features Glam Doll Donuts.
