Who is Donny, what's this all about, and why are these things trying to eat me?

Scientists worldwide all agree on pretty much nothing. A singular exception is the capacity for Minnesota's cold winters to sustain the undead in their frozen state, thusly we have a lot of undeads. There are two specific reasons why Minneapolis is the global city of choice for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.

Firstly: Zombies are attracted to brains and Minneapolis has a lot of good ones, therefore they are frequently meandering towards this town. However in Minneapolis for 5 months of the year it's cold enough to keep the undead firmly below ground, therefore we only have a seasonal zombie problem. The zombies amble on over and/or escape the frozen ground every summer in search of the best brains...and well...who can blame them. So, that is why there must be a safe haven for the big brained humans in the warmer months. It’s called Donny Dirk’s.

Secondish? Donny Dirks, is the only place where big brains are truly safe, and the zombies know this...somehow. They know for a fact that the best brains are inside and they want in! They know the appeal of the big brains and their attraction to Donny Dirk’s and that it is an oasis of makeshift civility in a semi-sketchy neighborhood. Big brains like a little sketchy here and there. It keeps the “urban” in urban. The big brains come in for a few hours and forget the unmitigated zombie attacks happening outside, while sipping splendidly fresh spirits inside. Nothing is more appealing than big brains drunk on fresh berries! Those are great tasting brains to zombies!

While work hard/play hard is a cliche often spoken arrogantly by the type of guy who's never done either, we at Donny’s, adhere to this motto. In the Summer, Donny makes allowances for the staff and lets us have a few nights off to enjoy what little tolerable weather that is bestowed upon Minneapolis, so that’s why we are open only 4 nights a week. Get in while you can.

High Season Hours: Thurs-Saturday 5-11pm, Sunday 5pm-10pm+ Sophisticated tragedy in a vat (house made infusions), freshness in the shaker, and a few goodies on tap. We hope you enjoy our offerings. Mon-Wed we’re sleeping it off or walking our dog, so we can start again fresh next Thursday.
