The Twin Cities have some pretty awesome mayors. First, we have Rybak, who crowd surfs and declares Doomtree Day, then, we have St. Paul’s Chris Coleman playing bartender for a day to take away his constituents’ mid-week blues. When, you ask? Tonight!
As if you Minneapolitans needed another reason to hop over to the other side of the river, there are some deliciously nonpartisan bar happenings this evening. Mayor Coleman will be pouring drinks at several St. Paul pubs tonight, starting with Bullpen Sports Saloon and Ward 6 before ending the night at the just-off-of-Snelling-standby, Neighborhood Cafe, which now serves wine and beer. Coleman will begin his “shift” at 5 p.m. tonight at Bullpen, just in time for happy hour, before continuing on to the other two locations. We’re most curious to see if Coleman will indulge in anything himself—perhaps one of Ward 6’s new “Adult Milkshakes” or the cleverly-coined “Don Draper Says ‘What?”cocktail . . .
