Two events happening this weekend for your consideration:
Ahmed Bharoocha at Sisyphus Brewing (Friday-Saturday)
If you’ve never seen a comedy show at Sisyphus Brewing, then you’ve been missing out. The stage half of the Downtown West taproom has become one of the best comedy venues in town, and this weekend’s headliner should prove that without a doubt.
Ahmed Bharoocha has been featured, among other places, on Conan and Adam Devine’s House Party. He’ll play four shows this weekend at Sisyphus, Friday and Saturday, 8pm and 10pm. Tickets are $10.
Taste of the Nation Minneapolis (Sunday)
There may not be a single culinary event in the Twin Cities that gets our star chefs to align like Taste of the Nation, a benefit for Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign. Guests will enjoy a five-course meal with drink pairings at the Loews Hotel downtown, made table-side by one of the top chefs in the Metro. The event will also include a silent auction and among the lots up for bidding, a private in-home concert from Jeremy Messersmith with appetizers prepared by Upton 43. Only 10 tickets remain ($250) for this wonderful benefit to end child hunger.
