January 5: Open Mic and the SAS

Tonight: Open Mic with Harrison Matthews
Time: 8:00 pm

We received a lovely note from the Saint Andrew’s Society regarding their First Footing party in the pub on New Year’s Day. Here’s a piece of it:

“We all had a great time, the food and drink were spectacular. As usual. Bill [Watkins] was…well, Bill! I’m going to suggest that we make this an annual occurrence. Thank you again for you hospitality.”

And we were honored to have you here. Thank you, Jack MacKinnon, for helping bring this about; thank you to all in the Saint Andrew’s Society for your support of culture and your good spirit; and thank you to our regular patrons who came up to meet Minnesota’s SAS members and join in the First Footing! We hope we’ll have a chance to host it again next year.

(Groups interested in scheduling events in the pub are encouraged to contact John Dingley for further information: +1 651 271 0202.)


Tonight, as every Monday, we start off the week with the Open Mic, hosted by Harrison Matthews. The ever-changing participants of this event deliver an eclectic mix of songs, stories, poems and so forth.

It’s your mic, it’s your talent.

We invite all patrons to join in the community: lend your voice and ears! Raise a pint and start the week with a little creativity. Cheers!

Monday through Thursday

Whether it’s been a hard day or a really lovely one, we invite you up for after work specials here at Merlins Rest. From 4:00 – 6:00 pm, Monday through Thursday, we’re offering $3.75 import pints; and we’ve got some of the best: Guinness, Belhaven, Fuller’s, etc. Other beer and liquor specials will be available too, as will food specials on cheese dips, lamb chops and more.
