Unique among the Cities' gay establishments, it is a full-service restaurant -- offering appetizers, burgers, sandwiches, salads and entrées -- an upscale bar -- with a wide array of craft cocktails, martinis, beer and wine -- and one of the hottest nightclubs in town, gay or straight. LUSH is known for its amazing happy hour and "all day" specials; its beautiful patio and sleek, modern decor; its Friday night Black Hearts Burlesque show, and its fabulous weekend Brunch, featuring bottomless mimosas. And you won't find better drag shows ANYWHERE in the Twin Cities -- #DragRevolution is the #1 drag cast, hands down! LUSH is one of the few places in town that welcomes everyone -- all genders, all ages, backgrounds and body types. It is both casual and sophisticated. You'll feel welcome here!

Minnesota's only LGBT and Allied soccer club open to all levels of skill and play. All players from all walks of life are welcome on the TC Jacks. Teams are fielded on a rolling basis throughout the year. Sessions begin approximately every 8 weeks and the average cost per session is approximately $70 in the warmer months, and $90 during winter months. Games are typically only on one set night/day of the week. The leagues to which the team is involved in varies but the team has played in CSC, Mpls Rec, AHA Adult, MN Adult, etc. The Jacks host Saturday practice and pickup soccer during outside playing temperature months in Minneapolis. Cost to join the Jacks organization is an annual $40 membership, which entitles you to unlimited access to practice/pick up soccer Saturdays, invites to social events, tournament inclusion, and much more! The levels of play are currently recreational and intermediate levels. In addition the types of teams fielded currently are Men's or Coed. There is a high need for female players to continue to grow fielding coed teams in particular. A women's team is not out of the question as membership grows. Q&A: Is everyone gay that plays on the team? No, nearly half of the active players are allies to the LGBT community. There is an expected code of conduct for players on our team that promotes equality, acceptance and sportsmanship. Everyone is welcome!
