Jayhawks at Minnesota Zoo

story posted Monday, May 29th, 2017 10:39 am GMT -5

Music at the Zoo is such a great series (and venue). Sue McLean and Associates does a great job booking every year, (usually) keeping prices reasonable for a wide variety of acts to choose from each summer. Last year, the Jayhawks made their Zoo debut on July 1 with a great show that I would’ve missed if not for my friend DGS and his extra ticket.

I don’t remember too many specifics now, so I’ll send you over to Jon Bream’s review at the Star Tribune. I do remember the quirky openers Folk Uke, who sang some great R-rated songs: Shit Makes The Flowers Grow, BJ to a DJ and Motherfucker Got Fucked Up. A few more pics after the jump. You can view the 2017 lineup here (we are going to Robert Cray on July 12).

Dinner at Bellecour

story posted Saturday, May 27th, 2017 11:00 pm GMT -5

After the success of Spoon and Stable in the North Loop, everyone was watching to see what Chef Gavin Kaysen would do next (and I don’t mean the stand at the stadium). When word got out the next project would appear in Wayzata, the countdown for reservations was on (and become like a concert on-sale date). Bellecour was the name, Lake Street was the place and modern French influenced by mentors Daniel Boulud and Paul Bocuse was the format. With some good social media timing, I snagged a reservation for one of the first Sundays (March 26th).

The building has housed several restaurants over the years (including a Muffuletta I knew nothing about) and was completely redesigned for Bellecour by Minneapolis-based Shea (whose growing résumé is becoming seriously impressive: Spoon and Stable, McKinney Roe, Mercury Dining Room and Rail, Milkjam Creamery, Italian Eatery, 4 Bells, Eastside, CōV). It’s a pretty space that’s not super big, but has several distinct areas, including a tiny bakery up front for pastry superstar Diane Yang. Cocktail legend Robb Jones (Spoon and Stable, Saffron, Bradstreet Crafthouse) leads the bar program, which we sampled while we waited for our table.
