Twin Cities Pride 2017 is here so let the rainbows fly as the Twin Cities go gaga in anticipation for a full week of festivities! This year the events are bigger and even more fabulous than ever offering up a wide variety of opportunities to celebrate Pride Week in style!
The annual Pride Beer Dabbler is back again this year pouring subs for a load of thirsty celebrateurs. This year, the Dabbler will have over 50 local breweries doing specialty Pride brews inspired by LGBTQ advocate, Lady Gaga. They’ll also have a variety of other festivities including live music and a silent disco.
The folks over at Firelake Grillhouse & Cocktail bar in downtown will be serving up some hyper refreshing Rainbow Boozesicles. You heard that right, boozesicles. They’re a frozen riff on wine coolers that, aside from the rainbow, also come in peach, strawberry, and mixed berry, and each gets topped with a can of Sofia Blanc de Blanc sparkling wine. The Radisson Blu Minneapolis Downtown hotel lobby will also have a pop-up stand of the boozesicles this Friday evening (6/16), but inside the restaurant, they’ll be available all summer long (sans the special rainbow edition).
Other Pride events include a comedy show by comedians Tig Notaro and Fortune Feimster, celebration nights with both the St. Paul Saints and the Minnesota Lynx, and a Pride concert featuring everyones favorite diva group, En Vogue, along with special guests Brian Justin Crum from America’s Got Talent, electro-pop artist Luciana, and local all-female rock band Rebel Queens.
