So much going on here tonight! Lovely. The deal:

5:30 – 7:30 pm

There have been reports that our good friend Gary Schiff, Minneapolis Councilman for Ward 9, will be in the pub tonight from 5:30 – 7:30 pm with supporters and friends. Join ’em for a well-wishing.

6:30 pm

Sharon Stiteler, who many of you know as the Birdchick, has announced that though she cannot attend, members of the Birds & Beers group will meet here at Merlins Rest on February 19 at 6:30 pm. Birds & Beers is an informal gathering of birders of all ages. If you’re a hardcore lister or a casual backyard birder or someone who just wants to know what this whole birding thing is about, then you’re invited.


Tonight, we’re cookin’! Cooker John returns for his monthly third Thursday gig.

Cooker John is one of the Twin Cities’ finest musicians. He plays finger-style and slide guitar, mixing folk, blues and originals that reflect a performing experience of over 40 years. Pop in for a tincture and at the same time enjoy this opportunity to share a musical experience of unusual depth and expertise. Music starts around 9:00 PM.

Whovians Unite!

Our friends from the Minneapolis Doctor Who Meetup Group will be in the pub on Saturday, February 21, from roughly 4:00 – 8:00 pm. Whovians unite! We always love to see them. Great fun. Join ‘em if you’ve got even a casual interest in the series (then or now). It’s free and fun.

You might even see an old episode of Dr. Who broadcast on a screen here….

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.
