Emily Quandahl Gallery Opening

Emily Quandahl is an abstract artist with a multidisciplinary background, creating in Minneapolis. Growing up in southern Minnesota, her life was immersed in the arts from an early age. With over 12 years devoted to the study of classical viola, including her formal education in South Carolina, Emily uses the art of practice to heavily influence and inspire her work.  Primarily self taught, she uses the repetition of practice and layering to influence her progression as an artist. 

Her work highlights the juxtaposition between layers of diluted free-flowing forms and opaque geometric shapes on canvases ranging of all sizes. Heavily influenced by the art of practice due to her musical background, each layer of the materials shows the growth and understanding between the artist and mediums being used. Manipulating where the paint will flow, yet letting it do what it naturally wants.

Emily Gray Koehler Gallery Opening

In honor of the Minnesota State Fair, Emily Gray Koehler has dug deep into her portfolio to find works celebrating the plants and animals we grow to produce the foods and materials on which our society depends. Some of these prints were created nearly a decade ago for a body of work entitled "Agraria" which investigated the farm animals we raise for consumption and pleasure. Others are new works from her "Garden Beasts" series exploring the importance of pollinators in the complex ecosystems we attempt to domesticate. While the marrying of these works, old and new, shows something of her artistic development, it is truly designed to demonstrate our dependence on and interconnectedness with the natural systems and processes we have tamed for our survival. 

Meet the artist at the opening from 6-9pm on Monday, August 13th or stop by any time during cocktail room hours to see the show which will be on display through Sept 9th.

Guest Bartender 13.0: Megan Luedtke

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. Join us for this one-night collaborative menu!

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.
