Last time I went to Taylor’s Falls and Franconia Sculpture Park, I stopped in and added The Northern Tavern and Grill to the #mnbucketlist. Right on the highway in Chisago City, right between Lake Martha and Little Green Lake sits this uber-popular sports bar that boasts one of the best sunset views on the eastern side of the state. Northern was crawling with Bikers, Hot Wings and Cold Beer when I was there but it’s a year-round favorite. Hang out on their huge patio during the summers for bonfires and a game of bags or come in the winter, pull up a snowmobile and warm up with Pulled Pork Sandwiches and Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers. They also have Bingo and Burger Mondays, daily specials and Frickles (deep fried pickle chips). And since there is limited options for food like this in the area and with desserts like Tuxedo Cake and Fudgy Wudgy Cake, you can surely count me in. You can catch BUZN 102.9 there on occasion, too!
