Submitted by Vanessa: Here are a few places Donald should consider going to after his final show on the tour in Minneapolis — places where there will be no bro rape and all the girls are “can get it”-worthy. 1. The 1029 Bar. It’s relatively close to the Varsity Theatre and has award-winning karaoke. They have pretty much any song ever written on their karaoke list and the Thursday night crowd there tends to seek out the obscure tunes that are still crowd pleasers (recent examples: “Bossy”, “Flagpole Sitta”). Their website: http://the1029bar.com/
2. Nick & Eddie’s. It’s in the Loring Park area. Good food, usually there’s music going on there every night, and you’re likely to see a bunch of cool kids and Josh Hartnett. Their website: http://www.nickandeddie.com/
3. Bryant-Lake Bowl. It’s in the Uptown area. It’s part restaurant, part bowling alley, and part theater. Their website:http://www.bryantlakebowl.com/
Uptown Minneapolis is supposedly hipster central, but I put my money on Northeast (“Nordeast”). Case in point: Surdyk’s Liquor and Cheese Shop, “the midwest’s largest liquor store since 1934” and one of the happeningest places any day of the weeks—but particularly so during tastings. And it just so happens that on May 19 (in honor of Donald?) a wine and cheese tasting will be going down from 5-9. It would make a great pre-show pre-game spot, after which you can then drunkenly explore Northeast (which is the best way to do it, of course) and all the swag it has to offer.
SURDYK’S 303 East Hennepin Ave. Minneapolis, MN 55414
Ian’s is a by-the-slice pizza joint bent on bringing culinary creativity and quality to the masses at an affordable price. They don’t own freezers and take great pride in every single slice. You’ll find options there that won’t be found anywhere else. Try out a black bean with feta and avocado, spicy chicken burrito, or their most popular creation, the mac n cheese.
Although Kanye West, Don C, Lupe Fiasco, Kid Cudi and Big Sean have stepped down on the grounds of RSVP the place is missing that GAMBINO presence. Now you know, check that shit out. Some of the brands include…
Comme des Garcons
Dee & Ricky (haha)
and Kanye West Bandannas (haha)
1753 N Damen Ave.
Chicago, IL 60647
YOLK is only open til 3pm but they open real early and although they have several locations it doesn’t look like a quantity over quality situation. I’m sayin this looks good!
The Closest one to the venue is located at…
747 N Wells
Chicago, IL 60654
HOT DOUG’S has over 2,000 reviews and is at 4 1/2 stars. They must be doing something right. If that wasn’t enough, here is a quote from their website
Memorial Day: You would think that a holiday that signifies the start of summer would be the perfect time to sell lots of hot dogs. Unfortunately, Scotch was invented in 1494. Therefore…Hot Doug’s will be closed for Memorial Day.
3324 North California Avenue Chicago, IL 60618-5848
KUMA’S CORNER got damn, another Chicago eatery rocking the 4 1/2 stars with over 2500 reviews. The burgers here are no fucking Joke I’m just going to have to post a few pics up.
2900 West Belmont Avenue Chicago, IL 60618-5804
No joke this is some pornographic food shit, damn!
If you get a chance, check out this large mural created by Shepard Fairey in the streets of Chicago. It is located at the underpass on Grand and Lakeshore near Navy Pier. It was created for his Revolutions exhibition that was held at the Art Chicago Fair a little over a week ago.
delicious (slightly greasy, but in a good way) food, very vegan/vegetarian-friendly, open late, funky but fun atmosphere, nice service…what’s not to like? the chili-cheese fries are awesome and vegetarian! Open until 3am so you can go and get the best breakfast of your life post-show!
Nomad is spot I’ve seen around a lot online. They just got the Supreme x Playboy collection on Saturday too. But since I’ve never actually been there I’ll let Hypebeast give you the lowdown…
Toronto’s Nomad has been one of the city’s bright spots for retail since its original inception in 2005. Five years later, the brand has surged forward with a second location located on Queen Street. With it comes the same well-stocked retailer with many highly sought after and respected labels such as COMME des GARCONS, Gitman Bros., wings + horns, Common Projects, A.P.C., Alden, Porter and Trickers among others. With a recently launched online store.
Nomad Queen Street
819 Queen Street West Toronto, ON Canada Tel: 416-202-8777
I’ve never been here before but I’ve known about this place and ordered a bunch of shit from them over the years. This is a cool ass spot that if you had no idea what you were looking for you would never know it was there. To get to the well stocked fashion/sneaker store Bodega you will need to navigate through their “bodega” store front. Once you get through you find brands like Tanner Goods, Garbstore, Head Porter, Stussy Deluxe…etc
Here is what the front of the store looks like…
But once you get through the faux “bodega” you will find one of the coolest designed shops in the country…
Thanks to Colin N. for e-mailing this to me. This is a crazy spot I don’t really know what to make of it. Basically it has four differnt spots that will all have something going on tonight. My pick would be the ZuZu part of The Middle East Club. Tonight at 11pm Durkin will be Djing and he promisses bumping dance music that harnesses the power of bass and soul. Gotta love that. - @pdxkeith
472 - 480 Massachusetts Ave Cambridge, MA 02139 (617) 864-3278
300 Hanover St Boston, Massachusetts 02113 (617) 742-3050
Okay Boston. This is the best you got for Donald? Granted it all looks good but there have to be some good places to have a drink and how about shop. And what the hell is up with the websites in this town. Notice to web designers: Move to Boston and open a business. - @pdxkeith
Blue State Coffee is perhaps one of the best coffee places I have ever been to in my life. They not only offer really well made coffee, but delicious pastries from gods tears. They have a daily soup and tons of options for the sandwhich department. It’s also right next door to Paradise, which is the venue when he will be preforming at while in Boston.
I guarantee Donald won’t be disappointed if he tries Wild Bites when he comes to Boston. The food is better than any other Italian restaurant. Plus the place is decorated by the owners wife’s art. She does 3D body mold paintings. Its a pretty awesome place. The website has more info if you want to check it out. Its at 36 main st. Amesbury, Ma 01913.
One of the shittiest websites I’ve ever seen but a quick google image search revealed some delicious looking dishes. - @pdxkeith
Fuck yeah, this place looks dope! I don’t know what it is about these Philly people but they really like to write. So let me just add some pics here and highlight YOU SHOULD EAT HERE AND COP THE KOBE BURGER cause it sounds amazing! - @pdxkeith
I’m Stuart Grady and when you come to Philadelphia in May I would love for you to stop by and dine at the restaurant I work at called Sampan (http://sampanphilly.com/). The restaurant is located on 13th and Walnut Street (124 s. 13th street) and we have amazing Japanese oriented food, but believe it or not some of the best food we have is American styled with a Japanese twist. Our Kobe Cheeseburgers are incredible and they are sautéed in yakitori sauce, our wings are served in a sweet Thai chili sauce and our cheese steak is braised pulled short rib, on a crispy wheat bao bun with siracha. Sampan is a Michael Schulson restaurant and he his more renown menu items are the edamame dumplings which are served in a sake dashi broth, the korean barbeque beef satays which are sautéed in bulgogi sauce, the chicken bao buns will blow your mind and the wild mushrooms salad is delicious too. I guarantee you’ll love any entree you try, and our ice cream’s are homemade and always interesting. Last week we made Vanilla Captain Crunch and Chocolate Sour Patch kids Ice Cream that everyone was enjoying.
Overall the atmosphere is very chill we have an indoor and outdoor Graffiti bar that always has hot women and great music two things I figure you know all about. So I am hoping you will stop by and enjoy a meal. Also I’m sure they will send you out plenty of complimentary foods to try too. If you came by that would be great for the restaurant, and I would be excited to hear you were there. I won’t be working because I took off of work to see your show on South Street which is going to be awesome! I also live on South street and there are plenty of bars on south street to go to, but you’ll want to party in Olde City in the 2nd and Market Street area. There’s an abundance of clubs and party spots all within 2 blocks so if you don’t like one place you can head to another.
If you choose to dine at sampan one night you’re in Philadelphia here is the number (215-732-3501). You can make a reservation and have a great meal. Anyway enjoy your stay in Philadelphia I’ll definitely be at the show and feel free to email me back with questions.
My name’s Jen, and I’ve lived in the Philly area for about four years. Here are some interesting places in Philly. Most of them are local mainstays. Here are my picks: National Mechanics (Bar) 22 South 3rd St. Philadelphia PA 19106http://nationalmechanics.com/philadelphia-old-city-bar Hours:National Mechanics is open Tuesday through Sunday, from 11am to 2am and Mondays from 5pm to 2am. Description from website: ”National Mechanics’ bar in Philadelphia is breathing new life into an old edifice.
When you pull open the tall, ancient doors, curtained in a blood red fabric, you open the passage way to a strange and mixed feeling of warmth and welcome. For some reason you feel like you’ve been here before. Maybe you read descriptions of hand modeled bars, or detailed stained glass in a book; or you recall the ancient brick walls and warm, florid lighting from films about days gone by. In any case, you can tell the work that went into this beautiful and historic building was wrought by the hands of people who love what they do, and care about those who enter.”
The website doesn’t have a description, so here’s my experience from there: The aesthetic feel of the restaurant itself makes you feel like you’re at a classy 60’s dinner party. The food’s kind of expensive, but it’s excellent. The drinks are also good.
(Sorry, I couldn’t find a bigger picture of the interior.)
Description (from website): “Mexican-American meets East L.A. in a Tijuana Taxi.” The margaritas are great, the food’s good, and the interior’s something to take in. They have a low-rider on display on top of a tequila bottle tower—can it get any better than that?
Bob and Bab’s is a PBR dive bar with the big draw being a “Philly Special” (a can of PBR and a shot of Jim Beam for 3 bucks). It’s pretty hipster and on the weekends they have a live Jazz band (to bad the show is on a Wednesday, Thursday is also drag night…). I wouldn’t assume it would be crazy crowded on a Wednesday, but knowing Mr. Glovers love for whiskey, this place make sense. In regards to location, it’s about 10 blocks from the TLA so it’s totally walkable. B&B’s doesn’t have a website show if you wan to show images here are some: http://www.details.com/images/details__privileges/images/2009/03/03/dive1.jpghttp://culturemob.com/wp-content/uploads/1BobLounge.jpg
Wow, this place looks really shitty. It’s perfect! - @pdxkeith
Hey there the Do it Donald Crew! Im going to the May 11th show at the TLA In Philadelphia and I figure I should share some good spot for Childish to come out and get some good late night grub after the show!
#1 : The Marathon Grill
40th + Walnut 200 S 40th St Philadelphia, PA 19104 215.222.0100 (p) 215.222.0538 (f)
Settled right in the heart of University City, near UPenn Campus, The Marathon Grill has become one of the hotspots for college kids and hipsters alike to enjoy themselves and indulge in some good food & drinks.
The Marathon Grill has several locations scattered around the Philadelphia area but the 40th and Walnut street location is ideal for you because it is home to the MARBAR.
The MARBAR is an exclusive bar and dance club right above the restaurant used for private and public events with space for live performances. *** HINT : GREAT spot for another impromptu concert!
It’s available every Weds - Sat from 9am-2am
#2: GENO’S Steaks
9th + Passyunk
1219 South 9th Street
Philadelphia, PA 19147
What would your trip to Philly be without gobbling down a nice, big, long, juicy Cheesesteak! And one of the best in the city is from Geno’s Steaks.
This spot have become a staple in Philly food since 1966 and all the celebs know to stop by for a bite. But be warned! You MUST know how to order because things move fast and you dont want to get lost in the sauce Donald!
For example, if you want a cheesesteak with cheese whiz and onions, you order by saying ” One whiz with!” or if you want a steak with provolone and no onions, you order by saying “One Provolone without!”. Sounds simple eh! Test your skills!
#3: Ishkabibbles Eatery
337 South Street Philadelphia, PA 19147-1518 215.923.4337(p)
Another local spot for Cheesesteaks is right across the street from the TLA called Ishkabibbles Eatery!
They serve every kind of cheeseteak imaginable! From the classic to buffalo chicken cheesesteak and pizza cheesesteak! You can find crab cakes, burgers galore and my ultimate favorite, sweet potato fries! All at low prices, trust me I know good cheap eats. College does that to you!
I hope I helped you and the Childish crew find some good eats in Philly! You playing the TLA is the perfect location to connect with the people and I know this show will go down in history ! Until then, Peace!
Philly is a huge foodie and craft beer town but tourists only know us for cheesesteaks I guess. I won’t go into Pats or Genos when there’s so many other amazing options to try.
I would recommend Adsum on 5th & Bainbridge which is actually like a 5 min walk from the venue that he’ll be performing at on South St. No cheesesteaks here but there’s some really amazing, out of the box food going on and the Chef is super cool. Feel free to hit him up on twitter @ChefLevin.
Drinks: He should try the cocktails at Supper (928 South St.) or the amazing craft beer selection at Varga Bar (941 Spruce Street), the food here is also super amazing. Farmer’s Cabinet (1113 Walnut St) also has a great selection of booze AND cocktails and the interior is pretty interesting. I would also recommend The Dandelion (124 S 18th St) for an overall amazing experience in food and beer.
Shopping: 3rd St. in Old City has some great boutiques that carry very cool items. I’d recommend Lost + Found and Art in the Age. In this part of the city he can also do some historic sight-seeing as the name implies. Independence Hall, the Constitution Center, a variety of parks, etc. There’s also a bar/restaurant scene here, lol there’s a lot of going on in this small area.
There’s a lot of see here but most of all there’s a lot to EAT and DRINK here. Luckily, a lot of the places I recommended are in walking distance from each other.
Before you head out in the am you might check this place out. Although you won’t be able to partake in the weekend brunch you could always check it out next time your in town - @pdxkeith
Submitted by Jessica B….
On the weekends they have this ridiculously piggish Bacon Brunch. Three courses, $25, and you’re set for some of the best bacon dishes you’ll have all year. Come on, how can you deny a bacon brownie with Jack Daniels whipped cream?
Sleep No More is an interactive site-specific theater production of Macbeth, not on a stage, but in a 100,000 sq ft warehouse that you wander through at your own leisure. The 5 story, 93 room set has a very film nior 1930’s atmosphere. The audience are required to wear Venetian style masks to differentiate themselves from the actors, who go throughout the entire 5 floors of the “McKittrick Hotel” wordlessly acting out scenes from Macbeth, mostly through interpretive dance. Audience members are free to follow the actors around and explore the sets and props(go through the draws in Malcolm’s office, read the letter Macbeth wrote to Lady Macbeth). If you see Macbeth running down the hallway, face covered in blood, or Lady Macbeth half naked walking around, you just might want to follow them. If you’re lucky you will get picked for a personal 1-on-1 experience. The action is repeated about 3 times throughout the 3 hours of the show so you can see other scenes that were happening as you were watching something else happen on the last cycle. Get there early to get as much of the experience as possible. Donald will eat this shit up. Tell him i can get him a hookup too! I intern for the show.
2321 18th Street Northwest,Washington D.C., DC - (202) 332-0800
REDEEM - Looks like a good store and they got B:Scott who’s stuff that dropped in April was real nice. Other notable brands include Comune. Also, it’s located across the street from the venue.
1734 14th Street Northwest Washington D.C., DC 20009 (202) 332-7447
COMMONWEALTH / FOR THE GREATER GOOD - I love commonwealth/FTGG. This is a great store that I have spent much time/dollars phoning in orders to from my west-coast abode. It would definitely be my first stop. - @pdxkeith
“Commonwealth is located down U street right outside Adams Morgan and next to it is For the Greater Good which is meant to be a more grown up version of Commonwealth (FTGG sells brands like Comme des Garcons, APC, and Wings + Horns)” - Yousef
1781 Florida Ave NW # B, Washington D.C., DC -(202) 265-1830
Yousef mentions this really dope designer out of D.C. who is making some great looking shit.
WOLF VS. GOAT - “Although he doesn’t operate a shop anymore Mauro Farinelli is running his own line called Wolf vs Goat (in my opinion the quality is just as good if not better than Band of Outsiders – I believe you do promo work for them) he can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 703 582 5966. In addition to ready to wear shirts he does offer made to measure options as well. http://www.wolfvsgoat.com/store/ ” - Yousef
This is fire! I think it should be called the Wolfpack Kill’em All Shirt.
Eat at Busboys and Poets; Reenact a Scene from Love Jones
This restaurant/bookstore/spoken word cafe is a MUST while visiting DC.
The best location is the one 14th and V. Not only is it the original, but it’s also fairly close to the Blackcat.
The food is AMAZING (I like their shrimp and grits), and they always have cool events going on, including open mic nights. The book store is fantastic, with poetry, Angela Davis posters, and even some feminist coloring books for kids. The patronage is also a cool mix of people from different backgrounds: professionals, young people that have relocated, and college students from Howard University, which is a few blocks away.
If you’re in DC on a Saturday, there’s this dope Belgian/French cafe called L’enfant, and get this, they have mid-day dance parties every Saturday from 2-5:30. It’s called La Boum (the Sexiest Brunch in DC). Check it: http://www.lenfantcafe.com/
Only 10 shows left on the IAMDONALD tour. As we come down the home stretch I need your guys help in finding some great places for Donald to check out on the east coast. Remember he loves FASHION, FOOD/DRINK, and MUSIC. Lets help him find some gem places. Keep the fashion dope (cool boutiques), and the drink Whiskey Neat (whiskey bars and other cool spots). Food has come the easiest for most so keep submitting those as well.
TO DONALD: IF YOU FIRE OFF ANOTHER TWEET IT WOULD HELP TOO WE WANNA END THIS THING RIGHT!

We gotta have some fun on this journey while trying to find dope places so I thought this odd submission should get posted. Why the hell not? I thought. Maybe you and the crew can go ride bikes around, BBQ or something. I don’t think there are enough impromptu rap/comedy shows performed in State Parks either. Just watch out for the headless horsman (ominous pics below).
Fort Mountain State Park 181 Fort Mountain Park Rd Chatsworth , GA 30705
I fucking hate restaurants that use boutique in its name. The place looks pretentious but rumors are that it has some pretty good burgers and if they are half as good as they look in the pics than you are in for a treat.
Donald should check out flip burger (http://www.flipburgerboutique.com/) while in Atlanta. Creative burgers and amazing liquid nitrogen chilled milk shakes. Owned by Top Chef All stars winner Richard Blais. Its my favorite place to eat in the city.
This is the first strip club to pop up on Do It Donald! and it seems like a great one to mention. It is the original Strip Club in Atlanta and even Bill Murray enjoys it. Its got great reviews on Yelp too.
Gotta hit up the best place in Atlanta. Words don’t even do it justice until you’ve actually gone and experienced it for yourself. But it’s dope. And the perfect place to go after the show. Address is: 789 Ponce De Leon Avenue Northeast.
Fat Matt’s Rib Shack is, without a doubt, the best barbecue I’ve ever tasted in Atlanta. The meat falls off the bone, the sauce is tangy and delicious, and it’s not that expensive - a half-slab and all the sweet tea you can drink is only about $12. I frequently find myself making up reasons to be around that way so I can stop in for lunch.
Okay, the good people of Atlanta and the Little 5 Points neighborhood have spoken and they really want you (Donald) to visit Criminal Records. They have emailed me, submitted posts, tweeted and even started a facebook page. I’ve never been to the ATL but I’ve heard of L5P and that its a good area to check out while visiting. It seems like they got some good food in the neighborhood and this dope record shop is only a block away from the venue.
Here is some of the comments i’ve received….
Jaclyn - “I’m not sure if he is awareof how amazing and unique Criminal Records is, but we all believe he would have such a great time checking out comic books, vinyls, CD’s, graphic novels, magazines, cooky comic-related toys and an amazing candy selection (some from Japan).
It’s the day after he performs at Variety Playhouse in Little Five Points, which is where Criminal Records is located, and everyone within the L5P community really thrives off of local support from one another.
CR is well known by many in Atlanta as well as those who live “outside the perimeter”. CR hosts many many many bands to perform in-store, which almost always draws a crowd so large you’re often forced to dodge in and out of people just to move from side to side.
We love Donald, we want him to come to Criminal Records on May 7th for Free Comic Book Day the day after he performs at Variety Playhouse in Little 5 Points located in Atlanta, Georgia.”
yarg - “Donald should most definitely hit up Criminal Records, which is right across the street from the Variety Playhouse (his venue in ATL). The good folks at Criminal will take good care of a gentleman, and guide him to fine musics and delicious eats. Speaking of, he should hit up The King of Pops at the corner of North/Highland while he’s in the ‘hood, ‘cuz them pops is good.
My favorite meal near the venue would be The Vortex (kickass burgers) or El Myr (great burritos, and the best jukebox around).”
Charlie- “Donald will be playing the Variety Playhouse in Atlanta — one block up is the best record store I’ve ever seen, Criminal Records (http://www.criminalatl.com/).
You’ll be around Little 5 Points anyway. You should visit the fantastic shops as well as grab a burger and tots (must do tots) at The Vortex. Like Craft Beer? The Porter should be rocking 10-15 taps of good stuff. If you get here early enough, you MUST catch the Sweet Auburn Curb Market Urban Picnic—bunch of food trucks/farm trucks come camp at our curb market for lunch. http://plancast.com/p/4yhd/first-friday-urban-picnic-april-29th-edition
This is what i’m talking about. Thanks to the wonderful Ali B. for the heads up!
Stag looks like a super dope store similar to The Woodlands out of Portland. They carry classic Americana product from Filson, Dunderdon, RRL, The Hill-Side and many others. This looks like a store to check out.
Home Slice on South Congress is dope. This place has the best pizza in Austin and a real chill vibe. I know Donald is from New York, but if he is craving some good pizza this is the place to go. SoCo is definitely something unique to Austin.
Donald, Facebook wants you to re-enact a scene from the Judd Apatow film Funny People. Here is your opportunity to perform for Facebook. @pdxkeith
Do it Donald! Come play an after-hours show at Facebook Austin in the heart of downtown. We’d love to have you. Also, don’t forget to get old school at Kung Fu Saloon, pick up some authentic denim at Stag, and have hot dogs and cold beer at Frank. But mostly, come to Facebook.
There is one place you must go when you get to Austin…
If you travel west on 6th street in Austin Texas you may stumble upon a quaint dive bar with a name like no other… Dirty, yes I said “Dirty” but that’s hardly what you will find there. In its attempt to scare away the average bar go-er it attracts a better crowd of industry and friends of industry workers. If you walk in and don’t know anyone you will meet someone. If you walk in and you can’t meet anyone… then get the eff out.
In the back corner by the jukebox you will find a posse of tenured drinkers who control the flow of tunes. Well only when they aren’t listening to the tunes of DJ Mel, Randy, and others. This corner has a stigma of high tippers, heavy drinkers, and hopeful hipsters. Next time you’re there be sure and say hi!
Take a cab. I guarantee they won’t know where you’re talking about. If you don’t love and respect that then don’t even attempt to walk in. Instead head over to Key Bar, The Ranch, Maggie Mae’s or somewhere else that… just isn’t that good…
Dirty Bill’s is there for those who love and care about it. Leave your ugly at the door, walk inside, respect the bartenders, know what you like to drink, tip well, and you will be happy as a kitten wearing mittens.
Hey you guys. Thanks again for the submissions. I probably have like 20 for the Atlanta show but I could use some more for the east coast part of the trip and for his stop tomorrow in Austin.
INCLUDE FASHION too people….. I know the type of stuff he likes might not translate into Texas too much but there is definitely dope shops on the east coast, I just need the details. Refer back to my original posts on Portland for some ideas.
Tell Donald that if he comes to houston he should check out Marfreless. It is hard to find unless you know what to look for (it’s an unmarked blue door underneath a bridal shop. He’d definitely digg it. Here’s the link from city search for more info/ directions. The reviews don’t do it justice however. If i ever want to impress someone from out of town this is the place i take them. Hell, it usually impresses locals too. http://houston.citysearch.com/profile/9857856/houston_tx/marfreless_ventures.html
This shit is a mystery Donald I don’t know what to tell you. But they have an unmarked service entry and that can only mean bad things (bad meaning good not bad meaning bad). - @pdxkeith
