NorthGate Brewing Third Anniversary Party

While NorthGate began celebrating their third birthday since Wednesday, the weekend promises to be filled with all sorts of shenanigans, like a three hour happy hour, $33 Flash tattoos from Northeast Tattoo, three hours of music from The Gentlemen’s Anti-Temperance League and three different casks on hand. Sense a theme? Clever, ain’t they?

Fancy hot chocolate

This weekend promises to be a balmy 37 degrees, but it’s still chilly enough for a nice cup of hot cocoa.  As a part of the Saint Paul Winter Carnival, The Saint Paul Hotel has a long-standing tradition of serving hot chocolate in their elegant lobby While the hot chocolate is not free, there will be lots of fun toppings so load up and enjoy.
