MPLS + STPL residents are an educated, maybe even over-educated bunch, but that doesn’t mean they don’t like to have a good time while they learn. Take this Bauhaus beer dinner at the MN History Center. Not only do you get the fancy menu—Pate en Croute with Apricot & Pistachio, Roasted Saddle of Venison, Chocolate Balloon Bowls with Uber Duber Charged Crema & Gooseberry Compote—but each course is paired with special selections like Sky Five Blood Orange Paint & Carbonated Grapes from Bauhaus Brewing. And either before or after the dinner, the MN History Center’s exhibits are open for your educational perusing. 5:30 PM. $55, $50 MNHS members. —Jacqueline Goode
