Local restaurants and breweries add domes to extend outdoor dining season
Restaurants across the Twin Cities are adding heaters, tents and domes to their patios to extend the outdoor dining season. And some are even taking that concept and expanding it. Northeast Minneapolis brewery, Broken Clock Brewing Collective has put up three themed igloos. They offer ‘A Day at the Beach’ igloo with a lifeguard chair and a surfboard table, ‘Retro’ which has knitted throws and vintage seating and a hefty box TV, and ‘Camping’ which even smells and sounds like a night under the stars in the woods. Each igloo comes equipped with a heater. The igloos must be reserved in advance and can hold up to six people. Broken Clock Beertenders never go in the igloos; instead orders are left on a barrel outside the dome entrance. Each dome is sanitized in between groups.
