Sometimes when I think about all the things I can do each weekend I get really excited. Almost as excited as these two when they turned their beds into bunk-beds.
So here are 3 things not to miss this weekend around the Twin Cities.
1. Hockey City Classic at TCF Bank Stadium
This Friday evening the Men’s and Women’s Gopher Hockey Team are hosting an outdoor game at the University of Minnesota’s TCF Bank Stadium, where their football team plays every fall. Past events at soldier field have been a success, but University officials have had this event in their minds since the new football stadium debuted in 2009. They are expecting 50,000 people to attend in what is turning into the weekend of Hockey, in the State of Hockey. This one I could not pass up! (If you can’t make it, National Pond Hockey Tournament is happening in South Minneapolis this weekend.)
2. Dangerous Man Brewing’s 1 year anniversary party.
Technically they have been celebrating all week with special releases, but they are saving the best for last. More new releases are planned for their beer. DJ Dudley J is spinning music friday night and Mike Mictlan & Lazerbeak are performing Saturday along with a Beard Contest, which has become common place at Dangerous Man. Tickets are required to attend the event on Saturday night. For more, you can go here Dangerous Man Facebook Page
3. Darkside @ First Avenue
I have always had the mind set that if I have a weekend night available, check to see who is playing at First Avenue. This Saturday, Darkside is playing the mainroom. A new indie dance duo, they are little known now but they are bringing their infectious melting of rhythm guitar and electronic beats to more venues across the country and gaining buzz. For only $15, this show is worth seeing. Read more about them and get a sneak peek from their stop at The Current. Darkside in-studio
