52 Dates a Year

Having fun together!

Minnesota Monday @ Grumpy’s NE February 5, 2010

Grumpy'sOn Monday, January 18, 2010 we headed over to Grumpy’s in Northeast Minneapolis for a very casual date night. Grumpy’s holds a weekly event titled “Minnesota Monday” where from 7-9 the beers brewed in MN are half off (think Surly, Summit, Grain Belt) and the music is all local artists. Rumor has it that bottles of wine are half off as well from 6-8 for non-beer drinkers. My brother, Josh, happens to host one Monday a month with his co-bloggers at Reviler.org, a local music blog that you should check out, and that’s why we were there.

We arrived shortly before 7 and grabbed a table to chat for a while before playing a couple rowdy games of darts. Chris & I played Cricket ourselves and then we recruited Robyn and their neighbor John to join us in a 4 player round. OK, the games weren’t exactly rowdy, but there was some fierce competition & Robyn has a wild style of playing darts (you’ve been warned)!

Chris’s Review
Fun night out, especially for a Monday. Grumpy’s is a NE staple, that we were pretty sure Nikki’s Grandma had frequented in her hey-day.

Grumpy’s is now updated with some great beers, and a good music Mix on Monday nights. We played darts and hung out with a decent sized group. Nice and relaxing night.

Best Part: The beer, and being able to just hang out. It’s nice being able to head to a bar just to talk with friends.

Worst Part: Pretty packed by the end. Not the most romantic night, but fun.


Nikki’s Review
The first time we went it was just to support Josh, but now I think we’ll keep going back because it’s a fun way to spend a low key Monday evening and still get to bed at a decent time.

Best part of the night: FINALLY hitting a double bulls eye after so many rounds of missing.

Worst part of the night: The bar isn’t huge & we were a bit crowded by the dart board.

Overall, it’s a fun, inexpensive way to spend a Monday night. RATING: 4/5
