A good friend and I have a problem. It seems to be a never ending problem. We are looking for a place to watch "the game." The game being any major sporting event that comes up.
Most of the places near us are either totally shady/sketchy (Champions), not game centric (Bryant Lake Bowl), way too busy and packed (Brits) or annoying (most things in Uptown.) We are looking for a place where we can sit at the bar or a table, order a couple beers, and watch (and maybe even hear) the game in South Minneapolis.
A second criteria, which puts a big twist on the thing, is that it must be on a major busline by our houses. Particularly the 18 or 21 (though the 11 and 4 are doable.) This means, for the bus impaired, Nicollet or Lake primarily.
Thoughts? Does this place even exist?
