Happy New Year Everybody!We are claiming NEW as our word of the year already! We have a lot going on including new specials at both locations, new beers, new opportunities, new trains, new-ly-weds, and new arrivals from the stork! And no, we are not changing who we are, we are just expanding our horizons, read on to see what we mean…
Hopkins Big 10 has all new specials including BBQ Ribs! We will always have the hotdish, sloppy Joes and inside-out grilled cheeses on our specials page but these ribs melt in your mouth. Choose your sauce and we will do the rest!! Ribs not your thing? How about our new grilled red pepper pesto chicken sandwich? This one is as tasty as they come! We also put on several new beers including Deschutes Mirror Pond Ale and Fulton Sweet Child of Vine, a Minneapolis favorite. Come on in before or after your movie, concert or that night out on the town and try the new brownie cheesecake! Yes, I said it! A brownie baked into vanilla cheesecake with chocolate cookie crumb crust topped with a chocolate mousse. It is excellent!
Campus Big 10 is in full game season swing. We just finished up with an exciting Gopher Football season and have moved on to Gopher basketball and hockey!! Be sure to check out the first ever outdoor hockey game at TCF stadium on January 17th. It is sure to be a sell out and we look forward to serving all those Gopher fans. Big 10 has a craft beer lover’s dream with new beers on tap all the time. We just put on the Deschutes Black Bute porter with is a dark beer lovers dream. It is a truly excellent porter. If that isn’t enough to entice you, you can try our new pretzel burger. The pretzel style bun creates an awesome flavored burger. We also have great night specials including Thursday night trivia. It is your chance to win great prizes or enjoy an awesome drink special. Check it out this and every Thursday to get in the game!
What else is new for Big 10 now that it is 2014? We hope recovery from light rail construction is in our near future. The construction trucks have left, the fences are gone and now all we need is a train. The rumor on the street is the first train will start running sometime in late March or early April. Whenever it is, the Big 10 wants to thank those supporters that got us through these tough three years of construction. Sales are down significantly but have been trending upward since the fences were finally removed last month. Is that a sign it is over? We aren’t sure but hopeful everything else gets back “on track” soon.
Big 10 Hopkins also had its first wedding. Brian and Carla tied the not behind the Big 10 for a winter wedding that won’t be forgotten. We are proud and honored they selected our store for their special day. Thanks you guys and best of luck!!!
Finally, we just want to take this opportunity to welcome two future Big 10 employees to our Big 10 family. Dan, Big 10 campus kitchen manager, and Ashlee Palm, Big 10 Hopkins server/bartender, had twins last month. We can’t tell you how intense the anticipation around these kids was and when we heard they had finally come, Big 10 was a buzz. Check out the Big 10 Restaurant and Bar on Facebook to see picture of the family.
