On the road again! My travels continued down in Tucson, AZ, where some of my best friends on the planet hosted me! This visit truly made me appreciate baby-friendly bars – I guess that starts to happen when your friends have kids because yes, we totally re-enacted the SWEET HOME ALABAMA scene, “you have a baby… in a bar?!”

For our first Tucson stop, our party of 1 dad, 2 moms, 1 might-as-well-be-aunt, and 2 babies visited The Lodge Sasquatch Kitchen in the north part of town. The Lodge is a locally owned great-outdoors-themed sports bar and we were immediately struck by the accommodating staff – seating us on their large sofa that made it easy and comfortable to hold the babies. The staff also changed the channels to a different game (without any guff!), and cleaned up the floor when a glass was inadvertently broken (not my fault, I promise ;).

Da Bar!

Happy Hour is served in the bar area from 4-7 daily and features $3 drinks, half-price appetizers, or combos - $6 Burger + a Beer or $6 Pound and a Pint, as well as daily deals like:
  • Monday Madness - $2 domestic bottles and $3 shots;
  • 2-Dollar Tuesdays - $2 draft beers
  • Whiskey Wednesdays - $3 Jack Daniels and Fireballs or a $6 Stimulus Package (PBR, Whiskey shot, and Cigarette)
  • 2-for-1 Thursday - all drinks are 2 for 1; and
  • Sunday Funday -- $3 Dos Equis (or $14 buckets), and $6 Deer and Beer (Casadores Tequila + a beer)
(clockwise from top left):
White Sangria ($3); Lodge Brew ($3); and Backwoods Mule ($6)

We happened by on a Saturday, so stuck with the exceptional Happy Hour Menu. We tried the $3 White Sangria, the $3 Lodge Brew, and a $6 (non-HH) Backwoods Mule – served in the obligatory copper mug! All the drinks were a-ok! For food, the half-price menu features over 10 appetizers, making for an inexpensive and vegetarian-friendly dinner! We sampled:

The Veggie Platter ($3.50) - served with "Bigfoot" Dip

White Cheddar Cheese Curds ($3.75)

Papa Perk also ordered the $6 Pound and a pint – a phenomenal deal with a pound of chicken wings and a pint of Lodge Brew!

The bar also features lots of games (pool, arcade games, corn hole, etc) and Minnesota Vikings insignia. Our helpful waiter let us know that Viking Jared Allen (um, I don't follow football much (I presume this may change in Packer nation though), BUT I love that Senor Allen is a badass on these accounts - 1) he sometimes appears to have a mullet; 2) he was kicked out of his HS for stealing yearbooks - tell me once again who's bad!!) is a part owner of the restaurant, hence the paraphernalia and Midwest themed bites like the cheese curds and non-HH entrees like JA’s Famous Fish Fry ($15.99) and the Juicy Lucy Burger, an angus patty stuffed with Merkt’s cheddar cheese ($8.99).

After our good eats and drinks, we headed home to rest up before Papa Perk and I headed back out to a late Happy Hour at the Armitage, where he could hear one of his favorite Tucson college bands, Sunday Afternoon, and I could drink Sauvignon Blanc to my Happy Hour heart’s content. Another great Happy Hour, but you’ve just got to love the prices at the Lodge.

Happy Hour + The Lodge = Happy Campers!
