The Usual: Raw Kale Caesar Salad at French Meadow Bakery + Cafe

Okay, we know this is not going to sound appealing on paper, but hear us out: a huge pile of organic kale, topped with kale chips. Okay, nevermind, that actually sounds way worse than we thought it would. Just know there’s an egg, parmesan and garlic puree involved, and you should just really give it a try because it tastes 1,000 times better than it sounds and we really get it every time we’re at French Meadow Bakery + Cafe.

Mark Your Calendar: 10th Amazing Case Trivia Bar-Crawl

We like bar games as much as we like trivia and as much as we like drinking Summit beer. (We like to think we excel at all three!) So when we got the press release for the 10th Anniversary of the Amazing Case Bar-Crawl, we figured we better share it with you. This year’s event—a sort of scavenger hunt for teams of 4-7 peppered with cornhole, relays, live DJ dance/sing-off, Summit all day, and a bunch of other fun stuff—takes place in the North Loop. Best of all, the winning team wins a 3-month supply of Summit beer. If you’ve got the eye of the tiger and belly of Norm from Cheers, get this on your calendar.

St. Paul Because: Free Parking Downtown After 4

Every week we’re hyping up St. Paul to get you to check out more of the city, including its under-appreciated and under-attended downtown. Unless there’s an Xcel show or Wild game, there’s often nothing but tumbleweeds in downtown St. Paul after 4 p.m. Might as well take advantage of the free parking and go get happy hour and fries at the Amsterdam Bar and Hall, awesome noodles at Tanpopo Noodle Shop, or live it up and go to Mickey’s Diner at 3 in the morning. Parking’s free, yo!
