We’ve been promo-ing this one a bit, but we also wanted to add our editorial stamp to the annual Lake Street Bash, a party that celebrates the street’s diversity that we routinely recommend. In addition to the enthusiastic atmosphere, attendees to the cool El Nuevo event space get to try the best of Lake Street—samples from Urban Forage, LynLake Brewing, Lawless Distilling, Joia Sodas, Rustica Bakery, and more, plus a stocked silent auction and the happy horn sounds of Dick & Jane’s Big Brass Band. The bash helps support the Lake Street Council and their mission to further develop one of MPLS’s central corridors. 5:30-8:30 PM. $30 advance, $40 door.
