3 Things to Eat This Week: Pride Edition

Pride weekend is also one of your last chances to eat at wonderful restaurants before they close

Happy Pride, Twin Cities! I always get all buzzy this time of year, seeing this beautiful community come together and celebrate out loud. In these days of depressing news cycles and a turned tide of inclusion, it’s nice to know you can strut downtown straight to Loring Park and see the most stunning drag queens, all that leather, the flags, the bears, the lady bikers, the politicians knowing that these votes matter, the families, and all that damn OUT and PROUD love. Whether you’re part of the community or an ally—or just really hungry—these are the bites to get into this weekend.

The Hewing’s Drink the Rainbow: Huge caveat: rainbow drinks seldom work. That said, I have faith in this talented bar team, and they are one of the few spots kicking off Pride tonight. (Am I wrong? Where are the Thursday hotspots?) Stop by for this $10 coup with gin, citrus, mint, aquafaba for a creamy mouthfeel, hibiscus garnish, and a splash of edible glitter.

Pig Ate My Pizza’s Piggy Pie: There is a ton of stuff going on out in Robbinsdale thanks to the Travail collective. Pig Ate My Pizza will move down the street into what is currently Travail (which moves across the street), so it will soon close for the big move. (And when it reopens, it’s going to include a brewery! So cool.) Stop by for one more meat-packed pizza, served in a cast-iron pan inside what was the original Travail location. The address will soon become home to another restaurant from different owners.

The Rabbit Hole’s Winner Two Point OH and Van Damme Good Brussels: This one hurts. This fantastic Korean gastropub in Midtown Global Market is calling it quits as of June 30. Stop by for one last order of some of the best fried chicken fingers this town has ever known. Pair it with the crispy/addictive brussels. Huge thanks to owners Thomas Kim and Kat Melgaard for all the memories.
