Smalley's 87 club closing this weekend
Smalley's 87 Club in downtown Minneapolis is closing after this weekend, according to Food Service News. Located inside the historic Butler Square and utilizing the adjacent alley, the bar was named for Twins All-Star and current broadcaster Roy Smalley.
A sports bar! Shocking, considering before Smalley's the space was a Champp's. FSN reports that Smalley's will be closed for remodeling and renaming after this weekend. The new bar will be called the Alley Sports Tavern.
