Tears for Fears once sang: "Shout, shout / Let it all out / These are the things I can do without."
Can downtown Minneapolis do without SHOUT! House? We're about to find out. The dueling-piano party bar will close for good on Saturday.
"Please come visit us on our last few nights and help us kill the kegs and bottles!" reads a Facebook post announcing the impending closure. "Give our players, staff, and loyal guests the proper send off! It’s going to be one hell of a party!!"
For SHOUT! House, the party began 15 years ago inside Block E, the horrifically planned re-development along Hennepin Avenue. It outlasted Hooters, Applebees, and Hard Rock Cafe, but jumped ship to 110 N. 5th St. -- aka the former Epic space -- as Block E transformed into Mayo Clinic Square in 2014.
Jimmy Buffet and the Eagles will rock nearby Target Field on Saturday, so SHOUT! House should have a steady stream of ideal clientele for its final night.
This one's dedicated to you, SHOUT! House:
