Located conveniently just off the Light Rail line and between downtown and the sleepy residential neighborhoods of South Minneapolis, Whiskey Junction is the first of a line of three bars tucked away on a small street where Cedar meets Minnehaha meets Franklin meets Hiawatha meets I-94. The area is often occupied by a mix of bikers and country, rock and blues fans from every walk of life, with Whiskey Junction offering live music most nights of the week - generally a mix of original and tribute bands. Offering a full menu and monthly $3.50 pint specials, Whiskey Junction, still in its original 1886 building, has a long history. First owned by the Grain Belt and Minneapolis Brewing Companies (when it was common practice for breweries to own neighborhood bars that distributed their products), the bar has since passed through only a handful of owners. While in its earliest days the rooms above the bar were rented out to local railroad employees (and, according to rumor, also functioned as a brothel), the bar now is home to notable performers such as Jonny Lang, Lynwood Slim and Big Walter Smith, as well as a full game room.

But hey the Joint next door and the Caboose are still going strong.
Bob's Java Hut has held the title of "Best Biker Bar" for the past two years--what with their fine, strong coffee and that nifty front wall that slides up just like a garage door. (This wouldn't seem to match the Hoover Dam as an engineering feat of the 20th Century...but we digress). And so it's time to crown a new ruler. Or a whole block of rulers, even. Thus, we present this pop quiz. Where can you: a) pick up both a 1995 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy and a leopard-skin halter top for your old... More »
