MSP-Matt's Bar questions
I haven't been into Matt's in a while. Okay, quite a while, as these days, I get my Lucy fix at The Nook. What I'm trying to remember about Matt's:
Other Amusements (video games, meat raffles, jukebox, like that)?
Full liquor license, or beer/wine (or 3.2) only?
Matt's website keeps timing out for me, and I'm not finding anything helpful at Rake or CP.
Anybody have answers?
I don't go often, as, of course, it would require me to cross the river, but this is what I recall (after having consulted with Orange Julius, of course): they do not have a full liquor license--it's just beer only. They used to only serve 3-2 beer, but I believe they now have the strong beer license. No pool table. Darts, yes, I think. Don't remember seeing a jukebox or video games and I've never been there during a meat raffle. It's pretty bare-bones in term of "amenities."
They have a jukebox, ATM, real beer, and weekly delivery of City Pages and The Onion. Thats about it.
I love the Cajun Lucy at Groveland Tap! Also, when I'm feeling healthy, the portabella mushroom sandwich. Actually, I think their whole menu is pretty solid, particularly for a bar.
EDIT: also, in terms of "atmosphere," the Groveland Tap is very family friendly--it draws a lot of folks with young kids. So, factor that in. This time of year, they also have a few umbrella-shaded-tables out on the sidewalks, which is nice, but I think no beer is allowed out there.
