A lightly overflowing handle of Chenin Blanc. An adorable bespoke mason jar gently filled with batch-hewn Boulevardier.
A tiny, hand-carved cherrywood snifter laden with hand-pulled espresso. None of these in any way relate to the music of First Dates. But all of these are semi-regularly enjoyed by Minneapolis-based instrumental duo Shawn Bortel (percussion) and Aaron Rosell (keyboards). With an atmosphere so thick you can practically sip it, these are craft-made soundscapes straight from the heart of Minnesota.
