The Polski family have been running Market Bar-B-Que since 1946, proudly satisfying Twin Citians’ ‘que cravings for 70 years. To commemorate their milestone birthday, the family-owned restaurant is taking their smoky goodness to the masses with a shiny new food truck. Join the family and their many fans at the Market Bar-B-Que Food Truck Grand Opening this weekend at Fulton Brewery. Summer worthy menu items like ribs, barbecue chicken, pulled pork and brisket will be paired with a special Fulton brew specifically crafted for the occasion.
Electric Fetus and Dangerous Man have teamed up to create a limited beer to honor Record Store Day. Yes, it’s a thing. The Organic IPA will be available at the Dangerous Man’s taproom starting this Friday, or stop by at Electric Fetus Saturday during Record Store Day to pick up a vinyl or two. Then bring your receipt back to Dangerous Man for a buck off a pint of the exclusive brew while supplies last. The limited release only lasted a few days last year. You have been warned.

The event takes place at 11 Wells Spirits in St. Paul, where you can also sample any of 11 Wells’ spirits. Because nothing goes better with roasted bananas than vodka. In spite of the massive amounts of alcohol present, this is a family-friendly event.

It’s tax day. You might need a cocktail. FireLake Grill House & Cocktail Bar would like to ease your pain, or at least muddle it a bit, with a $10.40 menu. Get it? 1040? Anyway, guests can enjoy any of FireLake’s "To Share or Not" appetizer items from the bar menu with a choice of house cocktail, glass of house wine, or draft beer for just $10.40. Now doesn’t that sound better than a last minute rush to the post office?
