Devil’s Advocate is a one of a kind establishment in downtown Minneapolis. First off, the restaurant has 40 beers on tap, which come from all around the world. Every week, Devil’s Advocate finds a way to bring in a great mixture of brews into their door, leaving beer connoisseurs coming back for more; the fun doesn’t stop here though.
DA has a very unique menu, allowing its wide variety of beers to be paired well with their delicious food. Those who come to eat at DA, they think of their world class meatballs. You have never had real meatballs until you have tried these wonderfully scrumptious…balls. They offer falafel, pork meatballs, polenta, buffalo meatbealls and many other dishes that don’t feature the ball.
Whether you are coming in for a quick bite, or simply looking for a new brew to try, Devil’s Advocate does it as well as anyone else.

When people living in Minneapolis think of where to get a good cup of coffee in a comfortable setting, most would probably name one of the numerous shops in Uptown or the Northeast neighborhoods. Nestled in the Stevens Square neighborhood sits one of the city’s best kept secrets, the Boiler Room. Situated on 3rd Avenue near 19th street, the Boiler Room is slowly establishing itself as the areas “go to” coffee shop. Providing 3 house blends along with a plethora of other drinks including mochas, espressos and a variety of teas; I’ve found the Boiler Room to be much better than your average Starbucks or Caribou. They also serve up some awesome waffles, rice crispy treats, brownies, cookies and amazing muffins; the chocolate chip banana nut being a favorite. Free Wi-Fi (of course) and a homey atmosphere like your best friend’s basement will have you wondering where the last 4 hours went. If you’re ever near 3rd ave or the Stevens Square neighborhood make sure to stop in for a cup of Joe, you wont be disappointed.

The event will also feature performances from Serpentwithfeet and Velvet Negroni, an amazing lineup for the small price of $5 ($15 w/o RSVP).

The Twin Cities’ BBQ scene has been lacking for quite some time, but things have began to change around the metro. One place that has been doing it’s thing for years is John Hardy’s down in Rochester. The small, shack style restaurant sits right off highway 52 for any wayward traveler looking to fill up while on the road. If you came here for decor and fine dining service, you came to the wrong place. Here you’ll lineup to order just like everyone else and you’ll receive the same awesomely prepared food, just like everyone else. The ribs are a crowd favorite, but the sampler is also worth tackling if you want variety. Dry rub guy/gal? Do you like a plethora of sauces? They’ve got you covered. If you happen to be in the Rochester make sure to stop by 1 of their 2 locations for some of the best BBQ in the state. Click the link below for more info.
