Although 94% of the ref’s calls are incorrect, hostilely confronting him at his son's birthday party is illegal. Give sportpinions their proper venue with today's Groupon: For $10, you get $20 worth of bar fare, drinks and more at The Ugly Mug, located on Third Street near the new Target Field.
A classic sports bar in the heart of downtown, and just an abnormally long bunt away from Twins action, The Ugly Mug offers beer, specialty drinks, and an extensive menu to match. Lead off with an order of the seasoned tater tots ($6), served with house-made ranch dressing, and then slide tonguefirst into a grilled flatbread, such as the alligator and shrimp ($13), topped with poblano chili sofrito and manchego and jack cheese, or the classic tomato and basil margherita ($9). For alcohol-encompassed eats, guests can nosh on the Summit EPA-battered chicken strips ($7), tossed with a choice of six sauces, or they can forgo the eating part altogether and sip on a specialty cocktail, such as the Stoli and citrus Blue Lemonito ($7.50), swirled with mint and agave nectar. In additional to cocktailery, 20 beers are available on tap and 40 by the bottle—one for each week in the year. As stomachs acquaint themselves with new friends, eyeballs can turn to any of the bar's nine flat-screen TVs to catch Twins, Vikings, or PBS highlights.

- Roosted at the bar for a bit before the Twins game and 'twere lovely. Stiff drinks, nice beer selection (the gentleman caller was quite tickled to order a Bitch Creek) and very friendly staff. The bartender even remembered us upon our return for victory beers. – Dena S., Yelp
