Ok sorry bout that guys. I guess Monkey is closed I just saw them come up on yelp, drinkowl.com and didn't doublecheck. I just biked around downtown to check for myself and they definitely look closed.
On a much higher note Paddy's (murphy's law) is OPEN (must have been a couple of lazy Friday/Saturday nights that I walked over to find no one there). They also have drink specials, beer and mixed drinks. I think it was like $2 domestic and $3.something mixed and maybe a bomb/shot special.
I talked to the bartender (owner?) and they don't currently have a night cook but he wasn't against the idea of making his lunch cook stay later. So I might see if we can just get a limited menu or something. I already told him we were coming and that I would call a few days ahead to make sure they remember.
