Gastro Non Grata : With A Side of St. Paul
April 10 Doors at 6, show at 7 $7 entry
Turf Club, 1601 University Avenue, St. Paul
Good people of St. Paul, protect your ears and fortify your stomach. We’re finally gonna do it. Gastro Non Grata at the Turf Club and we’re taking it to both levels. Upstairs you will experience all the ribaldry and class you’ve come to expect from GNG, but once you descend the stairs you will be met with another $3 cover and a chance to experience The Wet Dragons PBR Chili Cook-off.
Lift Bridge Brewery, will be on hand to tell you what the heck Saison means, why everyone likes a farm girl and what it’s like brewing East of the Mighty Mississip. All the while Matt McArthur and the good people of Cheeky Monkey Deli on Selby Avenue will be serving up sumptuous bites of comfort food to make your tummy smirk.
We’ll kick off the night with the sweet sounds of Baby Boys. After that, Nato Coles will saunter in with his modern day troubadour/punk rock sensibility and tell you how it is in this world today. To close the night we’re gonna kick open the door to your heart and unleash the power of your hips with The Sex-Rays.
Northern Brewer will be on hand boiling wort and sampling their latest Gastro-Brew and Please, please dear lord, do not forget about all the wonderful raw, frozen organs and muscles we’re always happy to receive from Clancey’s Meats for our Dead Meat Door Prize.
Jimmy Green and the rest of the Wet Dragons will be overseeing large crock pots full of simmering, bubbling, chili love. Here’s the facebook invite. Look for the link at other Gastro Non Grata social media outlets across the internet and sign up soon. There will be Special guest judges, cash and swag prizes, sloppy hugs and $3 tallboys for everyone. And it’ll only cost you an extra $3 at the door in the basement. A small price to pay to partake in the consumption of the holy trinity of tomato, meat and magical fruit.
Gastro Non Grata is a labor of love brought to you by City Pages, Heavy Table, Metro Magazine, PBR and Northern Brewer.
