Twin Cities Cocktail Week

Cocktails taste good, but can they do good too? Yes! We think they can! That's why we created Twin Cities Cocktail Week. TCCW is so much more than a week of special events; it's a monthlong fundraising program.  Order a Generous Spirits Cocktail from a participating restaurant, and they'll donate one dollar to a local non-profit partner. What's even better is that our friends at Proximo Spirits will match the donation dollar for dollar — That's something to raise a glass to!

Oh No! Don Ho Cocktail Brunch

Wear your favorite Hawaiian Shirt and join us in paying tribute to the musical stylings of Hawaii’s native son Don Ho. Meticulously crafted cocktails and a menu of heart brunch items will be served. Singing is encouraged. Singing while playing skeeball will be applauded. Make your reservation today.
