It’s a beloved Minnesota dive bar. It’s one of the most cherished karaoke haunts in Minneapolis. It’s the best spot to see live music in Uptown. And now it’s going to be your favorite place to experience the world’s greatest bar trivia!
Join us every Tuesday night at the Uptown VFW (aka the James Ballentine VFW Post 246), hosted by our not-so-secret weapon called Mathias.
If you’re not fully acquainted with this institution, we’ll just start by saying you’ve never seen a VFW like this before. It’s two bars -- the original dive bar heaven, and dive bar 3.0, or the plonger nouveau. (We just coined that, and you’re welcome!)
They have an extremely full bar with great cocktails and one heck of a bloody, plus the best menu you’ve seen in any VFW, or in most bars, period -- including street tacos, wings, cubanos, chimichangas, burgers and all-day breakfast poutine.
And an Uptown hotspot with AMPLE FREE PARKING? Just stop!
Trust us, you’re cool enough to hang here. We’ll have a table waiting for you every Tuesday night*.
Trivia at the VFW Uptown
Tuesdays at 6:30pm – starting March 5
2916 Lyndale Ave.S.
* We may not have a table waiting just for you. We were trying to be kinda folksy or something, but just show up before 6:30 p.m. and you’ll probably get a seat. We can’t guarantee that though, so you may want to arrive by 6 p.m. Even then, who knows. There may not be any seats available at that time either. I mean, it’s a pretty cool spot in a very high-traffic part of Minnesota’s largest city by population. And by size, too. In closing, we recommend you show up when they open at 11 a.m. They’ve got to have a table open by then, I mean...
Minnesota’s largest cider house RULES, and you can now play the world’s greatest bar trivia there every Wednesday evening! (And sans Tobey Maguire, unless he just happens to be in town and shows up!)
Number 12 Cider in Minneapolis’ North Loop neighborhood serves up 16 varieties of cider, including some non-alcoholic and non-bubbly ones, with apples sourced from Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa farms. And all that fantastic cider goes down so well in their big and inviting communal space.
And to the gluten-freebirds out there, go ahead and savor each cider, and every bite of Little Tomato woodfire pizza, whose truck is always on site -- serving 10 kinds of pie that can all be made GF.
Let’s review: Lots of amazing cider, amazing trivia, no Tobey Maguire, amazing pizza, amazing fun times!
