Drinks & Nightlife
Duh, Nordeast. Karoake, too. We ended up here quite a bit, because that is something you would do from this neighborhood. Startting at Psycho Suzi's or Gasthofs puts you on the way past The Palace on the way home, so a quick and practical cab fare gets you there to end the night. Just watch out, the last couple of times I was there fist fights broke out between two girls. Different girls on the separate times there, no one I knew I just witnessed it. That is an actual fact about my experiences there. Just sayin...

Polka. That is correct, I said Polka. If you are lucky enough to come to TQNE in October, dress warm and get a cab over to this place. So much fun inside and outside during Oktoberfest. Tons of fun year round, always live Polka on the weekends. While it is possible to have too much fun at Gasthof's, I still recommend taking the risk!

Basement dance party! I have always really liked the music here, seems more thoughtful. Sometimes old school, and I am so you know...that's fun for me! I think you will know if this is for you or not. NOTE I think Covid may have killed this place, check before going please.

On the Mississippi river and Marshall St NE, with an awesome outdoor patio. For groups of up to 12, you may be able to call and get same day reservations here. Make an early reservation for the patio if possible (not in the winter of course...), and request to be seated on the edge. Start the night (or morning!!!) here with dinner (BLOODIES!!!!) and drinks on the river with your group! Walk or cab along Marshall St for any number of other unique local spots to enjoy beverages and bar fare. Lots of ways to enjoy this gem. It is pretty sweet.

Food Scene
Proximity here. Food is ok. This is the closest place to the house to get a drink. It would be a ten minute walk home from here if you took your time.

Great food and atmosphere. Maybe a bit on the pricey side, so if you are trying to stay budget friendly you will skip this one. But if you want to host an upscale group meal or want to celebrate a night with someone special, this is a good local place that does a terrific job with it. RSVP early though, you will find it hard to get a table last minute. TIP! When you RSVP early, ask them about matchbooks for your special occasion!

Sightseeing
Go check out the "Witches Hat" of Minneapolis, the one Bob Dylan referred to in his song "All Along the Watchtower" which sits on a high point in the city. One of the best non-exclusive views of the beautiful Minneapolis skyline.

Parks & Nature
Duluth has it all. Half of the equation at The Quiet Nordeast Experience was born and raised there! Without a doubt one of the most beautiful places in the state of MN, and still ranking as one of the largest cities in the state as well. If you are planning a longer trip, consider a day trip to Duluth and plan to check out some of the parks up there. Jay Cooke is a really good one, but they truly have many. It is about a two hour drive from the house. You will not regret it.

Essentials
Super close to the house. While many places will also deliver, it is just so close and well laid out. Either way.

Shopping
Everyone knows the Mall of America is in Bloomington, MN right? If you get bored or anxious shopping like that, consider going and walking along Grand Ave. They have some cool little shops over there. If you try that and don't like it, at least you can drive Summit Ave while there and check out some of the oldest and most beautiful residential estates in Minnesota. Both streets will run down the hill to downtown Saint Paul eventually, and you can find some more unique experiences there as well!

Entertainment & Activities
I am somewhat connected to the local music scene. I fully participated in that part of our culture as a musician in the past, and I am blessed enough to have been able to continue to find room in my life for musical creation, recording, and performance to this day. My wife and I actually met through our performing music together back in the day. Aside from having a deep connection to NE Minneapolis, your host has deep musical roots. Someday this will develop into an experience I believe. For now, if you are looking for a rare musical experience while you travel to the Twin Cities and have an idea, run it by me...I can probably be of some assistance.

Go skating! The "Roseville Oval" is a large outdoor skating rink that operates between November through the end of March usually. Call and check before going, but if you are traveling during these times you can rent skates there easy as pie. You just need to make sure you dress warm, and don't worry...not everyone in MN knows how to skate! Go and try it if you haven't before, it is life giving!
