The Death of the Uptown Bro Bar and Morning Roundup

The death of the Uptown bro bar; analysis of how media coverage spurred the sudden popularity of Mojo Monkey Donuts; Sirena Gorda has closed; a look at Pig & Fiddle; two veterans of L’Etoile are opening a new restaurant in Madison called Three Square; DeRusha visits the Modern Cafe; a warm, thoughtful dismissal of Fulton Brewery’s Sweet Child of Vine; “It took me 40 minutes to get the stove to 400 degrees” seems more like a reason NOT to take a class in how to use a wood stove than an enticement to do so; a video documenting Lift Bridge Brewery’s oyster stout; and a partial tour of the Fargo, ND restaurant scene.
