This iconic south Minneapolis hipster hangout delivers a punch--a Wondrous Punch, that is, the mega-sized drink full of rummy fruit goodness and wicked strong ferocity. The dining room is filled with black and red traditional Chinese-American décor from back in the day, down to the paper menus with Chinese horoscopes. No one really talks too much about the food at Red Dragon, although we like getting the appetizer platter and cooking skewers of beef over an open flame, and the fried chicken wings are very good in a bad-for-you kind of way. But Red Dragon is really all about drinking crazy strong drinks while sitting in a vinyl booth full of cracks, in a bar so dark you don"t know whether it's day or night and don"t really care. The jukebox kicks ass, too. Warning: Beware of the Wondrous hangover.
