Today, Thursday, was my birthday. So, I had the first of my birthday celebrations. (Jerry believes birthdays should be celebrated or at least acknowledged for a month.) We couldn’t think of a more appropriate place in Minneapolis for a birthday lunch with an old friend than Psycho Suzi’s Motor Lounge.
|TIKI TIME ON THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER.
The place is staffed by a gang of obviously cool, funky, punky, tattooed wait-staff. The menu is also kind of cool, funky, punky, and maybe even a little tattooed, and included options like: Beer-Battered Cheese Curds, described as “cheesy wonders made with love by our neighbor’s cows”; Backfire Dip; and Potluck Pickle Roll-Ups (“Minnesota Sushi. Trashy, but tasty.”). I stuck with a really good and really healthy salad filled with lots of good stuff, including some incredible Spanish olives.
|FOR POTTY STOPS. RIGHT NEXT DOOR TO CHICKS AND CHICKS ON WHEELS.
The restaurant is situated on the Mississippi River with loads of indoor and outdoor seating. It was a beautiful day, so we were able to enjoy the outdoors. The décor is pure tiki bar with some kicky signage here and there. The bar welcomes visitors with a neon sign that reads: “Mender of Broken Dreams.” I forgot my camera — yet again — so we’ll all have to get by — yet again — with photos from my iPhone.

It's just tacky enough to work well! I especially love the toilet signs!
Happy Birthday. Two friends and I all celebrate our birthdays in November so we pretty much party all month.
Craig. Agreed. And I really loved those toilet signs, too.
MofM: But, don't your friends party all month even when there are no birthdays?
Yes, that is true. But believe it or not, we party harder for birthdays.
MofM: I can believe it. I used to do the same.
Those bathroom signs would really confuse me. I'm sure I would piss my pants standing there trying to figure them out.
Take care. m.
Happy Belated 40th. Those bathroom signs are still better then 'Us' and 'Them'
Tippin: Thanks for the birthday wishes! I thought those bathroom signs were the best I'd seen. I snapped another fun one in the city of St. Paul yesterday in a German restaurant. Hope to do that post tomorrow.
Mark: I don't think anyone would have pounced on you for using one or the other. Way too laid back a place. Chicks or dicks, whichever.
