Nick Offerman thanks Minneapolis restaurant via Twitter
Nick Offerman as Ron Swanson: Two meat-lovin' guys
Nick Offerman, better known to the Internet and the general television-viewing public as the woodworking, mustache-growing, meat-loving, Tammy-fearing character Ron Swanson from Parks & Recreation, was recently in Minneapolis doing a comedy set and a few musical numbers at Mill City Nights. Most performers have their own special ways of warming up before a gig to help ensure they can last the night, and according to his Twitter feed Offerman got a little help in that area from a well-loved local restaurant.
Although he was spotted outside Bradstreet Craftshouse at the Graves Hotel, a bar that his whiskey aficionado character could easily appreciate, Offerman took to Twitter to thank a certain Northeast haunt for welcoming and feeding him during his time in Minneapolis.
Makes sense. Jax Cafe has been doing awesome, straightforward, grilled meat on a plate for 80 years - just the way Ron Swanson likes it. Observe:
