Guest Bartender 11.0: Adam Gorski from Young Joni

Guest Bartender 11.0: Adam Gorski from Young Joni

Our Guest Bartender Program (GBP) here at Norseman has been a showcase of local talents who have influenced our palate, our style of service and/or our appreciation for unique curiosities. We have so much love and appreciation for the community of bartenders here in the North. These people are the folks pushing boundaries and blazing new paths of creative distinction in cocktailing on a daily basis, making the Twin Cities a destination for visitors and locals alike interested in great drinks. 

The GBP ranges from a collaborative new face helping us launch new menus all the way into a full-on menu takeover for a single evening event. In the instance of Adam Gorski's GBP 11.0, we’re very excited to preview some cocktails from both Young Joni's and Norseman's new menus launching next month!  
Adam is very near and dear to us at Norseman. He runs the beverage program and back bar, right down the street at Young Joni. He developed his palate at Bradstreet (when it was in the Graves) and Eat Street Social after which he ran the program at La Belle Vie before moving on to Young Joni. Across the board he’s one of the nicest guys in town, he shares an appreciation for nick knacks (as well as all wildly cute things) but above all, he works to remove pretentiousness and stuffiness from an industry that sometimes forgets that it is truly all about having a really great time and finding new experiences. 

Join us for this one-night collaborative menu featuring menu items such as: 

Big Bird
A very fun Rum Last Word variant highlighting Turmeric and the cutest fruit (pineapple) 

Passenger Pigeon
Maybe the coolest Long Island variant we’ve seen.
“The funny thing is I’ve never worked in a bar that these get called for.. So I’ve always made it differently. This one uses a tea that I’m really excited about, it’s like the flavors of Coca Cola and root beer together," Adam Gorski.

Lapsang Negroni
Lapsang Souchong is a really cool super-smokey tea. We’ve essentially used this to boost a Negroni to almost mimic a flavor of scotch or a fine mezcal. 

Lady of London (LOL) Sometimes we really like to make fun of ourselves. The Lady of London is a play on two very iconic cocktails from Marvel Bar (Keith Mrotek’s previous tenure) The Ladykiller was comprised by Pip Hanson who started the beverage program at Marvel, and the London Bridge was created by Tyler Kleinow and is Keith’s favorite cocktail on the Marvel menu.

Barret Lee Gallery Opening

Barret Lee Gallery Opening

Barret Lee's work revolves around his love for Graffiti, Surrealism and Cartoons.  Those three worlds are molded into one modern escapism, using fantastical characters and floating landscapes to lend an utopian outlook on life. Lee works with color and space to look for intimate moments of reflection and retrospection, putting many paintings into one with a controlled sense of clutter. Representing the constant flood of information we receive each day.  He also juxtaposes the clutter by making works that show isolation and distance. Using large negative space to create the idea of a fragmented memory or dream like escape.

Jodi Bee Gallery Opening

Jodi Bee Gallery Opening

Come meet the artist from 5-8pm on Monday, 11/22 for the opening of her new gallery of collages! Excerpt from Jodi Bee's Artist Statement:

My aesthetic is "more is, almost always, more", decoratively embellished, meticulously arranged to create harmony, balance, and a feeling of wholeness. The unique qualities of my collage, in contrast to other contemporary artists creating in the medium, lay in part within the nature of their being quite large in scale, featuring many layers of complexity.  This complexity is present within the symbolic language utilized, as well as in the physical qualities of the artwork. The collections within each work are bound to the wunderkammer, which is defined as a “Chamber of marvels,” and has a history that is both highly interesting and incredibly vast. Popular in the Renaissance, with a brief revival in Victorian England, The wunderkammer applied supreme unifying principles, the collector would contain categorized multiples in cabinets of curiosity. The choices of what specimens to acquire, and how to display them, reflected the interests and personality, unique to each collection, due to the nature of its collector. This, of course, was open to the individual interpretation of the viewer of each collection.
This current series, began in 2017, starting with the works referencing witches, hands, skeletons, and gemstones. It was undertaken by applying common methods of organization of like objects or themes, and in the drawing of analogy as found within these collections. In constructing a composition that emphasizes symmetry, aesthetically conceived pattern, comparison, and contrast, I use in my own two-dimensional wunderkammers within each individual I construct. In following these perimeters, I echo the manner of visual execution made by collectors past.

From the artist, "This gallery show is made up of various friends of mine who are all full time tattooers and also paint in their free time. I'm a firm believer that you can't get better by doing the same thing. To grow, one must be challenged. Painting is the avenue we use to explore different concepts, color schemes, layouts and ideas to better our craft."
