Great story about Louie Sirian, owner of Lee's Liquor Lounge
, located where the latest preferred Vikings stadium site is. Some call it the Basilica site. Others the Linden Ave site. Whatever you call it Lee's may be a distant memory if the stadium does get built there. Would be sad to see it go. But if it means a new Vikings stadium, then some things must go.
It's become a ritual to stop in at Lee's before (and sometimes after) Twins games. Cool place. It's like stepping back in time. One night the musical entertainment included belly dancers. I once met a deaf gal eating a banana there. Who eats a banana at a bar? She does.
The last sentence of this story cracked me up. Louie always tells it like it is that's for sure.
