The 1029 Bar is up there in Northeast Minneapolis, and Jerry had heard they had good lobster rolls, which they do, as it turned out. But last night was karaoke night, and the only table left was right next to the karoake microphone, and we sat down and ordered our drinks right before karaoke started.
Karaoke, especially in a straight bar, is pretty hit and miss, and there were plenty of misses but, wow, what loud music, especially when you're sitting two feet from the speakers. I guess it's been a while since I've been to karaoke and the music has changed (except for one Barry Manilow song that I recognized) and our eardrums were blasted out. Everybody was having a good time but conversation was impossible, so after we finished our food, we headed to Rachel's restaurant, where the weather was nice enough for us to quietly sit outside on the patio and have another drink and converse.
