From the same team that opened the tiki paradise of Psycho Suzi's, drinks by the light of the zombie apocalypse at Donnie Dirk's and the lurching meat wagon that is Undead Frank's comes the much-anticipated Betty Danger's Country Club.
The lore attached to the new spot located at Marshall and Lowry in Northeast goes that the economic apocalypse has taken over (wasn't that 2008?) and Betty, who was a little girl scorned for wearing mismatched tartans, decided to open a country club for the 99%. There will be mini golf, a ferris wheel and a giant statue of a gorilla.
The commitment to the story runs deep: drinks are named for the Hamptons, Ivy League colleges and are powerful liquor brokers in their own right.
Food is the sort meant to pair with those strong drinks including chips and cheese, tortillas stuffed with all manner of meats, lasagnas, mac and cheese and other dishes guaranteed to make your tennis shorts fit a bit tighter.
Sadly, the ferris wheel rides and mini golf will have to wait. The lit up art installation won't begin twirling until April and the thaw will need to come before we pull out the clubs.
In the meantime, Betty Danger's is open 4 - 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Friday 4 p.m. to 1 a.m. and serving brunch Saturday 10 a.m. to 1 a.m. and Sunday starting at 10 a.m. until they close.
