Long wait, no problem. Might be good to have someone up front to sort of "direct traffic". We eventually maneuvered our way to the bar. Bartender brisk but friendly. I like the small St Paul feel to the place, although I like Shamrocks alot better!

Best burger in MSP. Best Lucy on the planet. Ive had burgers all over this country and even the world. Some good, some bad. None do them better than Minnesotans. The Nook. Awesome place. Recenently remodled after a fire gutted it. Better lay out now, a bit more room. Good beer selection, nothing fancy. Locals from Summit and Flat Earth. Some other craft like Boulevard IPA or New Belgium Ranger. The selection rotates some, so some visits are better than others. You know what though, a bar doesnt need to have a beer list that gives BAs boners to be kick ass. The best part about The Nook, isnt even The Nook istelf. Its The Nooks basesment, known as RanHam Bowl. Sometime around 1960 someone built a bowling alley in the basement of a building in St Paul and its there today in all of its authentic classic glory. Seriously, this place maybe got a minor face lift around 1970, maybe. Food is served in the bowling alley and transported to there via dumbwaiter, no shit. They have a couple of drafts, I was drinking Summit Black IPA last time I was there, and a huge selection of Silo cans. Big Friendlies, PBR, Bud, Tallgrass (IPA, Ale and Oasis), Brooklyn Lager etc. They even have Skee Ball. Anyway, The Nook is fun, they have some good beers, awesome burgers and a fucking 60s era bowling alley in the basement. Whats not to like?
