      Dearest in mind, It is a great privilege and honor As you read this message, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because I believe everyone will die someday. My name is Mrs Mariam Hana Dauda from USA, I'm a merchant and a Cocoa Exporter from West African country and North African country to united State of America. I have been diagnosed with Esophageal cancer.It has defiled all forms of medical treatment, and right now I have only about a few months to live, according to medical experts. I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone (not even myself) but only my business. Though I am very rich, I was never generous, I was always hostile to people and only focused on my business as that was the only thing I cared for. But now I regret all this as I now know that there is more to life than just wanting to have or make all the money in the world. I have willed and given most of my property and assets to my immediate and extended family members as well as a few close friends. I have decided to give alms to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth so far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the U.A.E, India and Malaysia. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself anymore. I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and distribute the money which I have there to charity organization in Bulgaria and India, they refused and kept the money to themselves. Hence, I do not trust them anymore,as they seem not to be contended with what I have left for them. The last of my money which no one knows of it is the huge cash deposit of (Twenty One million Dollars ) ($21,0000.00) that I have with a finance Company abroad which I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatched it to charity organizations.I have set aside 20% of the total sum for you, for your time and patience, Now you have to send reply with your full contact information for more private and confidential communication, I am waiting anxiously to pass information's to you before my last hour as i have no more time unless by God's intervention. you can reach me here on my hospital email address for more introduction about myself. or drop your email here for me to have quick contact with you. Yours truly in pain, Mariam Hana Dauda

      Defrosted boys
      I recently went to Minny on business and this place was recommended by a friend. My colleagues and I got there at happy hour and decided to stay. It was great fun with lots of cute boys, and great tunes. If you find yourself in Minny you should check it out .

      A Palace for Pretty & Pretentious People (and weak drinks)
      I've lived in this city my entire life, and I can count on one hand the number of times I've gone here. My experiences here have always been rotten. Most of the bartenders are rude and will ignore you if you're not a friend of theirs, regardless if it's busy or not. On two occasions, I've been called the 'n-word' by bartenders here (the incidents were 6 years apart and involved a different bartender each time). The drinks are either weak as hell or poured poorly (stick with beer). Also, keep an eye on your drink. The only time in my life I've been roofied happened here. The crowd skews young, male, and white - think 'Clones.' Other than a Latino night on Tuesdays, diversity is NOT something this bar knows much about. The only positive things I can say: There's generally no cover charge (unless there's a special event or you're under 21), the food is decent, and the security staff are very friendly. If you like the idea of standing and posing with pretty people while sipping on weak drinks, then this is your bar. Otherwise, ANY of the other bars in Minneapolis are a better bet.

      Don't grab my ass
      I'll admit the food is really good there, but sometimes it depends on who's cooking. Some days it might be burned, other days it might be perfect, and it's relatively cheap. That's basically where my complements end. I've been sexually harassed by employees every time I've gone there. A few times on my apparel, sometimes getting my ass grabbed, and propositioned to going into the bathrooms. I'll admit some of the bartenders and cooks are really cute, but the guys who work there are a little creepy. It just seems really inappropriate to be asking a customer if they want to go into the "back room". Darling, you better be giving me more than just one free drink if you think I'm lowering my standards like that.

      Great surprise
      Hit this spot after the dank 90s, so maybe anything would look good but the guys were hot, the staff VERY friendly (and hot) and the music was awesome. Plus, didn't see a single bachelorette party (which seemed to be all the 90s had) so it was a much friendlier and healthier crowd.

      Ok Place
      No bar is worth 5 stars. Only those who give free drinks, massages, free money and, well.....use your creative gay thoughts. Went to this place several times on my first trip to MPLS. Nice, clean, decent time. The guests were a little less than fortunate but the drinks were cold and the music was fun.

    • Showing some love
      I LOVE and deeply miss the Saloon. I worked there for five years. It was a great time. If you come with friends or alone you well have a great time. Great drinks and the dance floor one of the Best in the U.S!
