Wooden Hill Brewing Company

Though brothers/co-owners James and Sean live on two humorously-juxtaposed poles of the country (Florida and Minnesota!), they remain as close as ever with their passion for craft beer, sustainability and honoring the family name. With good bar eats served on recyclable bamboo plates, creatively-named brews and a story behind their selected title (be sure to ask!), one simply can't go wrong here.

Red Cow

After experiencing the seamless execution and all-around loveliness of "The Cow," one might find it hard to believe that this business is the manifestation of one family's pipe dream to make it in the restaurant industry. After years of sitting around the dinner table playing the "What kind of restaurant would you open?" game, the family of four took the plunge and hasn't looked back.

Missing Pieces Escape Games

After experiencing their first escape room together a few short years ago, the family behind Missing Pieces had an exciting conversation in the parking lot after they were done. That conversation led to them creating their own escape room in the basement of their home (with their extended family serving as their guinea pigs). After a successful run, they went all-in and never looked back!

Odds N Ends

With its irregular store hours and oddities within, Odds n Ends is still as easygoing in its operation as it was in its creation. After TJ the sculptor and his friend Virginia found themselves in possession of too many trinkets and handmade sculptures to comfortably run their yard sales anymore, they finally found a permanent spot and continue to fill it.

Senser's Kitchen Bar

If you're looking for a place to watch professional sports broadcasts, but can't stomach going to another chain restaurant, hop on over to Senser's, where they know a thing or two about sports--after all, it's co-owner, Joe Senser, played for the Minnesota Vikings in the early 1980's!

Japanese Garden

Conceptualized in 1969 by Landscape artist Takao Watanabe, and built through the efforts of many including allied Japanese veterans of WWII, who appreciated the past training they received in Minnesota, this garden symbolizes peace and friendship between the US and Japan. Go for a contemplative stroll, enjoy the soothing sounds of the waterfall, or feed the koi fish in the pond.
