Options for a birthday party venue in NE Minneapolis
Hello, I'm celebrating my birthday in a few weeks and I'm fairly stumped on a venue. Part of the bigger plan is to rent a pedal pub in NE 5:30-7:30. So I'm thinking of meeting at the Sample Room beforehand for some small plates, it is close to where we have to meet for the pedal pub, and it shouldn't be too crowded mid-afternoon.
After the pedal pub, I am inviting more people to join us, and this is where I'm drawing a blank. One problem is I don't have a good idea of how many people there will be, maybe 30. I would like to have food available, but not at a sit-down restaurant. Staying in NE would be preferable, I was thinking one of the tap rooms once I learn the food truck schedule for that date, but just not sure about bringing a big group to one...Indeed might work or 612...
Thanks for your suggestions! This would mainly be a group of people in their 30s and 40s (just felt I should clarify since we are renting a pedal pub). :-)
What day of the week?
I'm sure you've thought of this, but you won't be able to fit 30 people on one Pedal Pub or in any of the venues you list here (not even on a Tuesday or Wednesday...and since all the tap rooms except Dangerous Man are closed those days, I'll assume this is on a Thursday or weekend...in which case there are lines at Indeed, 612, Ciderwerks, and DM at the times you give...even if it was just you it would take 20 minutes to get in the door).
american_idle makes the best suggestion: Suzi's. It was built for this sort of thing, is in NE, and has room for 30 people.

Not sit-down eh? Suzie's but parking sucks donkeys. If people are game why not go to the Holy Land? They have an upstairs seating area that rarely has anybody in it. You don't need to plan for the number of people and the food is always delicious.
If you do sit-down, and it's in that area, another option could be dinner at Gastoff's.
