Located in the Rossmor Building which also houses Sawatdee, Blacksheep Pizza and Key's Cafe. The taproom is filled with light during the day, and glows with warm light at night. Look for the robot sign hanging on the building and/or the giant robot mural painted at our entrance and visible from the street. Take a seat at huge bar overlooking the brewing equipment or grab a seat at one of many tables.

Psycho Suzi's is many things -- a hideout for shady characters, a rest stop on the road to oblivion, a destination for bachelorette parties and nefarious conspiracies alike. But mostly it's an updated tiki bar for a crass and cynical age.

The Cabooze located feet away from the Franklin Avenue light rail transit station and on several Metro Transit bus routes. Named for its intentional resemblance to a super-sized train's caboose, this light-rail-adjacent venue has long stood as one of the area's most prominent blue-collar clubs. Though its bikers-and-blues atmosphere is what gives the Cabooze its working-class charm, it also plays host to country, indie rock, hip hop, jam bands and everything in between.

From website: The Rabbit Hole gastropub is our nod to Korean Pogjangmachas, but our food is Korean by way of Los Angeles. It’s not your Halmeoni’s, Omma’s or Imo’s Korean cuisine, nor is it the kind you had while you were in Korea. It’s also not “Americanized” Korean as we are not “Americanized” Koreans. We are Korean-Americans and The Rabbit Hole is who we are.

The cuisine is based out of Trinidad and Tobago, but has a deep Indian influence. The island of Trinidad and Tobago is a huge melting pot of every culture you can think of and when the flavors combine it's like heaven. Marla's is a small, casual, down-to-earth restaurant. They use the freshest ingredients and make everything to order and warning that can mean exceedingly long wait times to get seated and to get your food. Quite spicy.

The City of Saint Paul was known as the Pig’s Eye Settlement until in 1841, when the first Catholic priest in the area, Fr. Lucien Galtier, dedicated his log chapel on the bluff to Saint Paul, requesting that the settlement adopt the name as well. The Cathedral of Saint Paul is now a civic landmark and the mother church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Paul and Minneapolis. Approximately 1,000 households name the Cathedral as their home parish. One of the finest examples of Beaux Arts architecture, the Cathedral was designed by E. L. Masqueray. The cornerstone was laid on June 2, 1907. Guided tours weekdays at 1 pm.

Parks & Nature
This park takes its name after the beautiful stream and its spectacular falls that plunges 53 feet into a gorge before running out to the Mississippi River. Trails lead in all directions, including down the gorge to favorite river shorelines. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, gave this Minneapolis waterfall national fame in the Song of Hiawatha, although he never saw the 53-foot falls he wrote of in 1853. The Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway, a 50-mile outdoor recreation loop in the Minneapolis area starts here Other attractions at Minnehaha include the John H. Stevens House, the Princess Depot, and the Minnehaha Falls Off-leash Dog Park.
