Everybody's favorite St. Paul-style square-cut pizza pie is getting another location in the other Twin City, this time in Northeast.
The owners of Keegan's Irish Pub are opening a franchise location of Red's Savoy Pizza next door to their University Avenue pub location, in what was formerly the clothing boutique Mona, reports the Mpls./ St. Paul Business Journal.
Interesting features of this particular Red's location include a lunchtime pizza buffet, late-night hours until 2 a.m. on weekends, and a bring-your-pizza into Keegan's Pub policy.
Not to be a buzzkill, but true fans of Red's know that only the original East Side location and its heavily seasoned ovens, running constantly since 1965, will truly create the magic that is a Red's Savoy pizza pie.
Then again, the streets roll up at dusk on the East Side, so maybe we'll be lurking around the Northeast location when a late-night pie is the only thing that will sate us.
Projected opening January 1, 2017.
