Saturday afternoon a lot of us went on a pub crawl. That meant The Gunflint Tavern and My Sister’s Place. Our first stop was the Gunflint Tavern. We all walked into town from the campground. The men had one single minded intention. The women were going to shop but it seems the Gunflint Tavern was a priority for all.
What I like about the Gunflint Tavern is it is one of the few places outside of the Twin Cities that serves Surly brews, a craft brewery in the Twin Cities that features Furious, Bender, Coffee Bender and Cynic brews. They are indeed Surly and becoming one of my favorites.
But the main attraction was not the beer but the more healthful “salad” for a few. [;)]
There were some more serious luncheon eats in this Bruschetta appetizer.
…and this Grilled Walleye sandwich.
Our next stop was My Sister’s Place sans the women to drink more beer out of a Mason jar this time. The women did go shopping.
Those red plaid shirts and jackets are not hung there by the customers. It is part of the decor along with animal skins tacked to the ceiling and the usual north woods kitsch on the walls. Under previous ownership if sisters came in to the bar and got their pictures taken the owner tacked them up on the wall at the bar. We went looking the pictures and found them on the women’s restroom door hidden around the corner. I’m not sure if that is a message or not.
