Since Gameworks has closed, my suggestion is Extreme Bowling on Friday or Saturday evenings at either Brunswick Bowl or any AMF Bowling Center.
Extreme Bowling would be bowling with dark lights on and it usually starts about 9 or 9:30 pm
There are four Brunswick Bowling Centers around the Twin Cities.
There are six AMF Bowling Centres around the Twin Cities as well.
Dubliner is a place with live Irish music, and on Sunday nights from 8 to 9 they have a writer who designs a very cool; tough yet doable, literary trivia quiz. 25 questions, people compete as teams rather than individuals. Prize is a t-shirt for each of the members of the winning team. I would like to do this as a group some Sunday night in the summer.
