Only in Minnesota could leather-clad bikers, backwards-ball-capped University kids, and bluegrass lovers from The Cabooze next door mingle so amiably. Deep down it’s a joint for regulars: bikers with salt-and-pepper beards and aspiring Town Drunks who leave howling into the night. The vibe isn’t hostile, though—it’s amazingly good-natured and The Joint has some of the most hospitable bartenders in town. So dust off your leather jacket, order up a Bud, and you’ll soon find yourself at home, commiserating with your new best buddy, Lester.
