'Tis the Season


Valentino's

200 Concord Exchange N, South St Paul, MN 55075

Inside this 120-year-old castle-like building lies a great place to have a party. It boasts multiple rooms and bars, a dance floor and DJ, plus the food from the on-site restaurant, TreVina, is superb and a fry cry from the usual lukewarm chicken breast with sauce you get from most caterers.


Science Museum of Minnesota

120 Kellogg Blvd W, St. Paul, MN 55102

With some of the best views of St. Paul, this spot provides holiday revelers with a great backdrop and good food. Enhance your party package by getting museum admissions for each guest.


View Restaurant & Bar

2730 W Lake St, Minneapolis, MN 55416

Tucked in the posh Calhoun Beach Club lies View. During the holidays, this venue is decked out in lights and provides great ambiance for a gathering. The great food is just a bonus.


Lake Elmo Inn Events Ctr

3712 Layton Ave N, Lake Elmo, MN 55042

For years the Lake Elmo Inn has been the toast of the East Metro. Now their new event center provides groups with the same great eats in a nice private space. Just 15 minutes from downtown, it's definitely worth the jaunt.
