Oasis Market & Deli at Midtown Global Market

You can find mother-and-son duo Amina Deble and Warsame Warsame’s new Oasis Market & Deli at the Midtown Global Market. They are offering groceries from East Africa and the Middle East, along with butcher services and a Mediterranean grill. You will enjoy the traditional sandwiches (gyros, falafel, Greek Philly), kabobs, salads, and desserts, plus Ramadan specials (April 12). They also have hot and cold cafeteria-style service and delicious bowls to eat in or take out. This is a great time to visit the Global Market for those who have missed traveling; you can sample some of the countries represented by the vendors right here in Minneapolis.

The Masters Viewing Party at Thr3 Jack

April brings us great golf and food at Thr3 Jack’s North Loop neighborhood sports bar. Special viewing parties are planned for the entire family to watch the Masters Tournament on 10 big-screen TVs through April 11, as well as book private simulator bays for virtual golf. Highlights include chef Robert Wohlfeil’s special menu featuring pimento cheese and club sandwiches, housemade chips, and a bucket of warm cookies, plus a round of Bootleg cocktails. Lots of fun games throughout the restaurant—reserve online or by calling 612-354-3667.
