Tom and Jerry's: Chisholm, MN
Despite the rather faded sign, the interior of Tom and Jerry's is surprisingly new. Unlike a lot of bars it's actually pretty bright inside. It's a huge area filled with lots tables. It has one of the longest bars I've seen (which isn't saying too much so don't get that excited). It's also has a pretty wood top. But there are never any people in it. Granted, we're usually in there during the day but even so I expect a few more people to be hanging out at the bar. But other than the bartender there's usually only one guy sitting at the end of the bar. And for some reason they're watching Food Network. I know, right! What are guys doing watching Food Network in a bar? But it seems to be a pretty prevalent thing in this neck of the woods. While I love the change from the normal ESPN or what have you, I also find it very amusing.
The bartender has been pretty friendly whenever we've gone in. Even if we have to raise our voices so he can here us from the other end of the bar. I don't remember if we've had the same guy but if not they're hiring the right people. At least for the day shift.
The drinks are not bad. You know you're getting some booze in there without it being obnoxious. This is one place we tend to break our 'One & Run' rule and change it to 'Two & um...leave'.
