Attention all you MST3K fans! The Gizmonic Institute is back in action at the Bryant Lake Bowl Theater! Come see another classic B-movie get pilloried by your favorite talking robots as Mystery Science Theater 3000 presents: Hobgoblins.
Hobgoblins is an honored member of IMDB’s prestigious “One
Star” club, and we can only assume the film bought that star with money or favors. It’s abysmal, okay? So drink up and take your licks. Life ain’t a pleasure cruise.
While you’re there, enjoy happy hour specials starting at 10pm including: $3 domestic taps and $4 select taps, house wines, rail cocktails and $4.25 appetizers. Also, receive up to two $2 PBR tallboys if you show up with your bike helmet.
I also highly recommend their grilled cheese made with white cheddar.

SAVE THE DATE! The 10 Second Film Festival is one of my favorite events of the year!
The Soap Factory’s Ten Second Film Festival celebrates innovative and spontaneous filmmaking. Voted Best Festival in 2011 by City Pages, The Ten Second Film Festival is a celebration of micro-cinema and the everyman—a chance for anyone to be a cinematic god, if only for 10 seconds.
Tip: Bring folding chairs to sit on as the field outside The Soap Factory is full of pointy cut down weeds and gravel and no blanket is going to make that comfortable.

Founded by Catalina Duran and Lucia Vogel, this City Pages Best of the Twin Cities Award-winning restaurant for Best Central/South American Restaurant focuses on a tight menu of Honduran cuisine and Mexican staples. Favorite eats include the succulent, fall-of-the-bone Mixiotes (barbecued chicken in a Mexican stew), the Pastelillos de Carne and the Casmient, a tasty mixture of rice, beans, cilantro, and chicken, served ringed with orange slices with a side of fresh, hot tortillas. But there are also your favorite standbys like great renditions of chiles rellenos, enchiladas verdes, freshly fried chips and a trio of homemade salsas, and an incredible horchata spiced with jicama and tamarind.
