$10 ADV/ $13 DOOR

Once you’ve pushed away from the table, your gullet full of green bean casserole, antacid and your ears ringing from your crazy uncle, Gastro Non Grata brings you back to a different kind of Gluttony. Announcing our Post-Thanksgiving Belt Punch Extravaganza.

Steven Brown of Tilia in Linden Hills and Peter Campbell the man behind Red Wagon Pizza Company will be rolling in to coax your taste buds back to life after the influx of tryptophan subsides.

Lanny Hoff from Artisanal Imports will be choosing 3 of his favorite brews to create mouthgasms of awesome while expounding the virtues of some of the top brewers across the pond.

As for your musical entertainment, Drew Peterson and The Dead Pigeons will kick the night off with songs of regret and unrequited love that will make the beer flow a little easier. Then Crankshaft is gonna kick you in the booty with a little bit of BOOGIE and get the whole crowd rocking. To finish the night off L’Assassins are gonna prowl the stage and punch you in the face with a monkey wrench of garage rock.

DJ Shannon Blowtorch will be on the 1s and 2s all night spinning songs that aid digestion with a mixture of sweet jams and hot hits.

As always, make sure you hang on to your ticket when you walk in because Clancey’s Meat & Fish will be sponsoring the always interesting Dead Meat Door Prize offering pleasures of flesh to all who enter.

Purchase advance tickets here because this is something you shouldn’t be able to pass up.

Gastro non Grata is a labor of love brought to you by Craig Drehmel, Jeff Mitchell, Clancey’s Meat and Fish and all the amazing people that donate their time and effort to make it happen.

We’re also happy to welcome Harriet Brewing into the fold. Our East Lake neighbors will be on hand to provide samples of their locally crafted microbrews and might even have a few high fives for you if you ask nice enough.

The evenings musical energy will be provided handily by The Pinsch, our good pastry pal Sheela’s new project, followed by the hard hitting sounds of Cadette and the night will be closed out with the rock kicks and riffs of Pink Mink on headlining duties.

DJ Shannon Blowtorch will be on the 1s and 2s between bands playing music that is guaranteed to make your booty move all over the room.

Pretty awesome right? Well, if that’s not enough with your paid admission you will also get to partake in the Wet Dragons salsa/guac off downstairs in the clown lounge. If you think your salsa or guacamole has what it takes to take the prize, you can enter here. Prizes will include St Paul Bagelry gift certificates, $50 bar tabs at the Turf Club, Growlers of Harriet Brewings finest and more, more, more probably non-meat related prizes.

here's the link for the salsa/guac off. First come, first served, novice and pros are welcome.

In honor of the Herbivore, we’re gonna give our sponsor Clancey’s Meat & Fish a little breather from the Dead Meat Door Prize and create a show specific door prize in lieu of delicious animal parts. Man, that’s a lot of stuff happening for a measly $10 in advance.

Greetings Gastronauts. It’s time once again to celebrate separating your trash, riding your bike and winter that feels like late fall. She must be warming up to us and it’s time to say thanks to Mother Earth. Our April 20 Pre Earth Day Confection Carousel comes with a WARNING…

This is a rare Friday night show and no restaurant in their right mind would give us their chef. So we’re setting savory to the side on this one and are bringing in 3 of the most talented pastry chefs in town. So Please, make sure you eat dinner before the show because you will be receiving 3 dessert courses.

Dustan Pinlac of Levain will be the first to establish the base of your sugar rush. Christian Aldrich of Haute Dish will bring the sucrose to the second course and put your taste hairs on edge. James Beard Nominee Michelle Gayer of Salty Tart Bakery will be the one to glaze you off this candy cliff into the abyss of ethereal dulcification.

Each course will be paired with a sample of the bubbly brown stuff from Lagunitas Brewery, there’s even word that we’re going to get one of the few elusive kegs of Waldo’s Ale, an ultra rare Imperial/Double IPA that has only been available in California until now. Corey Shovein of Hohenstein Distributing will be on hand for quality control and Lagunitas craft beer dorkspeak.

The honeyed vocal styling of the Cactus Blossoms will start the night off right on the waltz tip. Heavy Deeds will be bringing their laid back grooves and harmony ambrosia on a journey between your ears to help your second course settle and Michael Gaughan will be performing as Little Dog on Top of a Big Dog to bring your saccharin soaked journey to a close with a dose of perma grin.

As always, Clancey’s Meat and Fish in Linden Hills will be providing carcass for our Dead Meat Door Prize.

Local Author Matte Resist will be on hand to answer any gardening or bike repair questions. He will also be selling and signing copies of his book How and Why : A Do It Yourself Guide.

Tickets are $8 in advance here or you can buy them at the door for $12
