Bedlam Theatre is one of the Twin Cities’ most unique theatre companies. Bedlam offers unrepeated productions with elements of local themed art and humor. Originally having Minneapolis as a home base for their shows, Bedlam Theatre has just opened a new location in Lowertown, Saint Paul!
I’m sure you’ve heard it, the clever broadcast ads being run to help ramp up excitement for the St. Paul Saints’ final season in their beloved – and beaten up – Midway Stadium. Last week, upon hearing the commercial for the tenth time, the thought of buzzed tailgating and great people watching was enough to help me commit to the $8 cheap seats.
I enjoyed a recent evening out with friends in the Lowertown neighborhood of St Paul (near where the new Saints’ stadium will be built for 2015). We hung out at the Bulldog to watch the big game and then Barrio to dance like maniacs — but before all that rowdy revelry, we dropped in at Bin Wine Bar for dinner, and I was pleasantly surprised.
I’d been to Bin once before, but only briefly. This was my first time enjoying the full dining experience.
Depending on who you ask, attending a ballgame at the new St. Paul Saint’s stadium in 2015 will be an absolute rip off. Or it will be a fantastically fun evening in lovely Lowertown at a reasonable price.
