Meet & Geek @ Mickey's Tavern

Mickey's Tavern is located in that sweet old turreted building with the worn paint job that sits on the west side of the very end of Willy St. (where it turns into Winnebago, then Atwood.)

They offer what is, hands down, the best burger I have had in this town: the Mickey's Burger: 1/3 lb beef burger mixed with spicy giardiniera (italian hot pickled vegetables), with chipotle aioli, tomato, and buttermilk-battered crispy onions.  Served on the perfect bun.

The Sexy Fries are also quite popular: handcut fries with truffle oil, parmesan cheese, and chives with crushed peppers.

Then there is the atmosphere: a walled outdoor patio, an old-school bar room, or a back room with retro couches and lamps and a pool table.  (Food can be served in any location.)

Like every Meet & Geek, this is just an opportunity to come out and lecture/argue about your personal area of geeky obsession - or just drink a beer (or root beer) and chat nonchalantly while those around you lecture/debate about their  favorite areas, enlightening you in the process.  I always learn the esoteric, the fascinating, the crucially relevant at M&G's.  And I laugh a lot.

I promise you will have fun. 

I can promise you this because if you are NOT having fun, I will do whatever I can to achieve that result.  Other than giving you money.  We can work together on a mutually-agreeable solution.

I could go through the whole argument I laid out last time  (You could stay home and play D&D/watch Dr. Who/etc. or you could come out and meet your new DM/LARP player/soulmate/etc.) but I think you'll remember the basic idea.

To see Mickey's menu, see: http://www.menupix.com/menudirectory/menu.php?id=150517.  (Not a great copy, but the best I could find.)

For questions, concerns, directions, or to offer ME money, feel free to call me at 215-3331.

See you on the flipside, my friends...

    So lively that I forgot to take pictures. My favorite thing about this job is seeing a room full of nervous, quiet strangers transformed into a teeming hive of engaged, passionate, relaxed, laughing geeks. You guys are a gift to me. Also, the burger was all that I remembered it to be...

    I am going to suspend my vegetarianism at this for one night, because those burgers sound too good to resist.

      So glad to have served as a vehicle of corruption once again..

      July 11, 2013

  • Joe L.

    I may not get there till 7. Don't leave.

    July 10, 2013

    • Anthea

      Leave you? Sneak out? Pied-piper kind of thing everybody down to a different bar so you're left standing around wondering where everybody is & if it is bc we don't like you? HA! Would I do that to you, buddy?

    Is there somewhere nearby to park? I don't mind walking a bit. There doesn't seem to be many spaces by the building.

    July 9, 2013

    • Anthea

      They do have a little lot by the building, but it fills up fast. I always just park on the street. At that time of night, there shdn't be any restrictions. Glad you're coming, Yi!

  • Emma S.

    I'm going to the Co-Op's annual party at Fete de Marquette, but I'll try to stop by at some point!
