Classic meet and mingle nights at bars may be our go-to plan when you want to meet new people, but why not put a twist on the how you go about mingling with new people? Trivia nights are a method of mingling you probably never thought of—it’s also a fantastic way to spend a weeknight for those looking for a fun and relaxed activity! Events & Adventures has done everything from music bingo to pub trivia to themed trivia nights (like Vancouver’s upcoming Simpsons trivia night).
Putting our heads together in a competitive but friendly environment is always a great way to break the ice and making mingling easy! While any gathering can be fun with a great group of singles, there is a certain kind of bonding that happens when people put all the random facts in their head together to represent Events & Adventures at a local trivia night.
With trivia nights for music-lovers, travelers, TV show fans, any other interest you can think of there is no shortage of options in our city! Last week, we visited one of our favorite venues, The Bimini in beautiful Kitsilano. Events & Adventures members are always treated to prime seats in the house for a few hours of entertainment thanks to our connections in the city. It was a creative way to kick back after work, and trivia is a fantastic way to find out more about that special person you might feel you have a connection with, or even to just discover new friends who share an interest in the same topics as you!
There is nothing Minnesotans love more than when the weather finally starts to warm up and they can enjoy hanging out on a patio, enjoying ice cold beverages and playing yard games. That’s why this summer Events & Adventures Minneapolis is having a Sunday Summer Patio Tour. We’re hitting up all the best places around the Twin Cities that fit the patio lounging theme.
We are kicking off our Summer Patio Tour at Forepaugh’s in May. Forepaugh’s Restaurant is a gorgeous, state-of-the-art venue located in a historic, Victorian mansion. The rooftop terrace overlooks Irvine Park and the quaint porch and patio offer views of the Ramsey House.
We will get to try a small tasting menu created just for Events & Adventures members, including great dishes like beef satay, lemon candy, shrimp caprese bites, and Malaysian chicken samosas. We will also have our own personal whiskey connoisseur who will be mixing personalized drinks for our guests and educating those who want to learn about whiskey. He’ll also be holding parlor games like trivia where our members can win great prizes.
Forepaugh’s is also known for being haunted so they will be hosting ghost tours through the mansion for the brave at heart. The paranormal activity in Forepaugh’s Restaurant seems to revolve around the original owner of the mansion, Joseph Lybrandt Forepaugh and his former maid and lover named Molly. Their apparitions have been seen on countless occasions within Forepaugh’s Restaurant.
Without a doubt there is something for everyone to enjoy at Forepaugh’s. See you on the patio!
