Sloppy Joe's, located at [Address], is your garden variety pub. It's not going to win any raves of "Hottest. Bar. Ever.," but it's a serviceable place to relax and unwind. Just keep your expectations grounded. And there's something to be said for beers that cost less than $14 bucks. Review of Sloppy Joe's.

Ed's 500 Club

Ed's 500 Club is the type of place you start off your night. The drinks are cheap and strong but the crowd isn't the type to get the party started. Grab a quick drink here and then head out to the real party. -Review of Ed's 500 Club

Swede's Bar - Twenty dollar cover? Nope. Celebrities? None. Swede's Bar is nowhere near the pages of Us Weekly or TMZ, but hey, beer is beer, whiskey is whiskey. A friendly neighborhood bar where you can pretty much wear whatever the hell you want. (But leave the cargo-shorts at home.)
477 Mankato Ave
Mankato Bar - Of the city's hundreds and hundreds of bars, Mankato Bar fits right in the middle of the bell curve - a place to hit with your buddies on the way to your ultimate destination. Not the ideal spot for fabulous, drunken debauchery, but it's a good as place as any to pre-drink.

In real estate the mantra is location, location, location but in mixing cocktails its technique, technique, technique.

Chilling a Glass
Always chill glasses before filling them. There are a couple of ways to accomplish this. First is to simply put them in the fridge or a freezer a couple of hours ahead of time.

Creating a layered drink, also known as a pousse caf�, is not difficult once you know how. The main concept is the heavier ingredients go in first and the lighter ones on top so the ingredients don't mix. Take an inverted spoon and slowly pour the ingredient onto the back of the spoon. This spreads it out and reduces the churn that happens with a straight pour. This can also be done by pouring the ingredient down a glass rod.
To make a flaming drink you have to have a spirit that has a high alcohol content. Brandy is normally used. Prewarm the glass being used. Pour some liquor into the prewarmed glass and heat a smaller amount over a flame or in a saucepan on a stove. Light it with a match and then pour it into the glass being used very carefully.
