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 $20, you get $40 worth of bar fare, drinks, and more at The Ugly Mug. Though this Groupon is valid for redemption at any time, its value is not valid toward happy-hour specials.
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 colored in by finger foods as well as hearty burgers and sandwiches. Lead off with an order of cheese curds from Ellsworth Creamery, which bask in a poblano chili tomato marinara ($7), or scoop up a few chicken strips that slather taste buds and fingertips alike with jamaican jerk, mango barbecue, or buffalo sauces ($7). Burgers similarly sidle up to tables, rewarding guests with a side of freshly dressed fries. Hang a fang on the Ju(i)cy Lucy with grilled or raw onions ($8), or let the chefs do the shredding by ordering a hand-pulled barbecue-pork sandwich with fried onion and coleslaw ($9).
If desired, perked up patrons can forgo the eating part altogether and sip on a specialty cocktail, such as the Stoli and citrus, blue lemonito, swirled with mint and agave nectar ($7.50). In addition to cocktailery, 20 beers are available on tap, with more than 40 other brews stocked 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 big-screen TVs to catch Twins, Vikings, or PBS highlights.
