The Plan – Psycho Suzi’s

The plan was to go to Psycho Suzi’s for a few beers and then head somewhere to watch the Vikings/Falcons game. That was the plan, anyway. And as you know, the best laid plans of mice and men…

The game started early at 6:30 and because I knew this, I was very careful to point out the fact to anyone who would listen. Though plenty of people listened, I very much doubt anyone heard me because three or four pitchers of Summit later, there we still were, not watching TV forty minutes into the game.

I beg your indulgence while I digress…

Psycho Suzi‘s: If you’ve never been, you must. It’s located in Northeast Minneapolis at Marshall and Lowrey. Think of an old A & W drive-in restaurant converted into a bar with a goth/tiki theme, park Billy Idol out front as the doorman/bouncer, and you get an idea of what Psycho Suzi’s is all about. They sell beers like Schmidt and Schlitz and Blatz by the can, they serve deviled eggs as appetizers, and the descriptions on their drink menu often describe everthing but the ingredients.

There is outdoor seating, which is good because many of the customers are smokers. And there are plenty of suicide girls [don’t go here during work hours] on staff and as clientel.

So, as I said, I didn’t get to see the first part of the game. In fact, I didn’t get to see the first two touchdowns. But I did see the replay on Moss‘ touchdown bomb and who did he beat but Falcon’s first-round pick, Cornerback DeAngelo Hall.
