Farewell Triple Double... for now.

Five years ago, we joined forces with the folks at Triple Rock Social Club to add DJs, dancing, and videos to their 2-for-1 Tuesday nights. In February 2008, we launched Triple Double, naming the night after the Triple Rock, the three DJs who would spin each week, and the 2-for-1 drinks. The night has run nearly every Tuesday since, with the exception of Christmas, St. Patrick's Day, and a few other random holidays or special events. Read More

We continue our BRLSQ Spotlight Series with a feature on artist Brandon Holt.

You may remember a year ago when this happened... a loyal Minnesotan had Peter Bekke's awesome Minnesota Pride print / shirt design expertly recreated as a tattoo. Well... this just happened.

Cinco de Mayhem: A Smashing Success!

If you were here at CO Exhibitions for Cinco De Mayhem this past Saturday, you know what an incredible night it was. From the completely over-the-top piñata designs to the elation of the crowd all night long to the tissue paper and glitter-splattered aftermath, this was definitely one for the history books.

And if all that wasn't good enough, here's a little bonus: Thanks to everyone who paid to swing at the piñatas, we raised about $300 which we will be donating to Second Harvest Heartland! Thank you Twin Cities! For those of you who missed it, we will now attempt to recreate the magic through photos and video, captured by our awesome gallery attendees.

Hand-Painted Signs of Kratie

While I was in Cambodia this past March, I became fascinated with the Khmer alphabet and the signs featuring those letters (See my earlier post about the signs and visuals I found in Cambodia and Laos). While shopping in Phnom Penh, I found a great book entitled Hand-Painted Signs of Kratie filled with photographs of signs found in Kratie, a small, rural city in Central Cambodia. Check out a few pics from the book and then order a copy! It makes a great companion to the popular Faythe Levine & Sam Macon Sign Painters book released last year.
