Gopher game-day specials?
A reader writes:
I remember when Benchwarmer Bob's was still open. They would offer $0.50 burgers during the Gopher football games.
I would like to know if there is anyone out there that offers such specials during the Gopher Games anymore?
How depressing that football fans are gearing up for the season--is summer already on the wane? I don't actually remember Benchwarmer Bob's, but I did check in with its replacement, Mad Jack's, which said they will be having Gopher game-day specials, but that they hadn't yet been finalized.
A few other Dinkytown bars will be offering game-day discounts, but none seem to come close to 50-cent burgers. Readers, do you have suggestions? Please share them in the comments.
Big 10 Restaurant & Bar No specials, but on days with 11 a.m. games, they open at 7 a.m. and serve classic breakfasts of scrambled eggs, pancakes, sausage, bacon, and the like.
Buffalo Wild Wings Specials haven't been finalized, but their parking lot turns into a massive tailgate during home games with its own portable kitchen and bar.
Stub & Herb's Bar No regular happy hour on game days. Usually just a beer special, sometimes specialty shot themed to correspond with the opposing team.
