Ever since realizing a new restaurant was coming to the vacant space over by Woodbury Lakes I’ve been eagerly awaiting it’s opening. Hazelwood Food & Drink couldn’t be more different than the previous venue, which is a great thing. They completely revamped the interior and while it is a little more upscale in pricing for Woodbury the quality definitely makes it worth it.Continue reading

LoLo American Kitchen and Craft Bar | Stillwater, MNStandard
I went to post a photo of our most recent visit to LoLo American Kitchen and Craft Bar in Stillwater, Minnesota and realized, that although they are probably my most recommended spot, I’ve never written a Hipster Hack about them which felt very wrong, so here we are with a recap of some of our favorite dishes!Continue reading
Devil’s Advocate | Stillwater, MNStandard
After months of driving past it and saying “oh shit, we keep forgetting about that place,” we finally made it to Devil’s Advocate in Stillwater for a very quick dinner before my nephew’s soccer game.Continue reading
Lolito Cantina | Stillwater, MN – 2022 Hipster HackStandard
I’ve already written one Hipster Hack back in 2020 for Lolito Cantina, but that was two years ago and it’s still one of our favorite places so it definitely deserved an update!Continue reading
Forge and Foundry Distillery | Stillwater, MinnesotaStandard
Forge & Foundry Distillery is a must stop for us when we go to downtown Stillwater.
I am going to be completely honest: I have only ever had one cocktail from there, but luckily I’ve been with enough people who have tried other ones to showcase them haha. Continue reading
The Wild Hare | Stillwater, MNStandard
We spent an impromptu afternoon/evening in downtown Stillwater, Minnesota last Sunday, first meeting Fiance’s family at Forge & Foundry Distillery (Hipster Hack coming soon) and then we lucked out snagging a spot on the patio at The Wild Hare for dinner with friends, because with it being Labor Day weekend, downtown Stillwater was packed and the waits we were being quoted elsewhere were an hour.
We had never been before so it was also great to be able to check another place off the list.Continue reading
The Velveteen Speakeasy | Stillwater, MNStandard
I love a good prohibition era bar and it wasn’t hard to convince fiance that The Velveteen Speakeasy in Stillwater, Minnesota was the best spot for our next date night when I assured him it crossed off all his criteria:
- Dim ✅
- Strong Cocktails ✅
- Pork Belly ✅
Plus who doesn’t love playing dress up to go to dinner?Continue reading
Brick & Bourbon | Stillwater, MNStandard
I’m embarrassed to admit that the writing funk of 2020 consumed me again. We were lucky enough to visit Brick & Bourbon last month when eating outside at restaurants was still a thing and I was so excited to be able to experience the Brick & Bourbon rooftop patio in downtown Stillwater, Minnesota.
Brick & Bourbon has been a place that has been recommended to me by multiple family and friends when they found out I moved back to the East suburbs and was craving something new. It definitely lived up to the hype!
The Wilder Scratch Kitchen | Bayport, MNStandard
Trying new places hasn’t really been at the top of my list this summer due to the pandemic, but since moving back to the East suburbs (I miss Minneapolis so much) I’ve been wanting to get out and get reacquainted with the area…Fall is also perfect patio season which is the ideal dining scenario right now, so when my (sort of) brother and sister in-law (they’re actually my sister’s in-laws, but I’ll claim them all day everyday) invited me to grab cocktails and a snacks at The Wilder Scratch Kitchen in Bayport I was so excited, mostly because I didn’t even know it existed!
Being honest, their website is a hot mess, but they appear to be more active on their social media so I would recommend going to their Facebook for any information and the website actually directs you there for the current menu. (*job plug: if anyone who works there reads this and wants some website help, let me know! I work at a marketing agency and we do great work😂 )
Lolito Cantina | Stillwater, MinnesotaStandard
Even though I live in Minneapolis, I still drive all the way to A’Salonna in Stillwater, because I only trust Kelly to do my hair…luckily for me, I have family (Cecil & Noelle) in the area and they agreed to start an afternoon of “Saturday Funday” by meeting me and boyfriend for lunch and cocktails at Lolito Cantina!
