New Belgium Brewing’s traveling bikes and beer event Tour de Fat lands in Loring Park on Saturday (see page 35). While there shouldn’t be a beer shortage at the annual bike charity benefit, there’s nothing wrong with ducking into a neighboring bar for a quickie, especially with these day-spanning deals.
Loring Kitchen & Bar
1359 Willow St., Mpls. • 612-843-0400 • www.loringkitchen.com
While LKB’s kitchen might lure you for your first meal of the day, don’t forget about the “& Bar” during brunch. Weekends from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., bottomless mimosas are $10. With its daily happy hour starting at 3 p.m., there’s no reason not to make multiple appearances.
Cafe Maude at Loring
1612 Harmon Pl., Mpls. • 612-767-9080 • www. cafemaudeatloring.com
Amid an afternoon of beer-slugging in the sun, a cocktail and an air-conditioned break could be critical. Maude’s normally singular “leisure hour” turns plural on the weekend, offering house wine and a select cocktail for $5 from 2-6 p.m. Don’t sweat it, determined beer drinkers, Maude has $3 taps for you.
1624 Harmon Pl., Mpls. • 612-486-5500 • www.cafelurcat.com
With Tour de Fat festivities wrapping up at 5 p.m., Lurcat’s daily 4:30-6:30 p.m. happy hour makes the D’Amico affiliate a great post-Tour stop. Tap beer and well drinks are parsimoniously poured at half-price, meaning you should have plenty of coin to drop during the day on beer and merch (it’s for charity, bro).
