Cheetos and Trail Mix at Marvel Bar, Minneapolis
You find this speakeasy-esque bar through an unmarked door behind the wonderful Bachelor Farmer restaurant, walking down a dimly lit hallway and entering through a purple door (all things lead back to Prince in the Twin Cities). In the land of micro-brews and sports bars, you know you’ve found a true mixology hideaway with cocktails called Gatsby, Ladykiller, and Double Luxe. The bar menu, however, is anything but luxe. For a time, the only food available was Cheetos — who can resist that orange dust that takes four bar napkins to wipe clean — but Marvel Bar has since expanded their menu to include marinated olives, a fancy trail mix made with pumpkin seeds, nuts, dried cherries, and cranberries, and chocolate coated in cayenne, paprika, and cinnamon. There's also a house-pickled egg, that for $2 is as irresistible as a bowl of cheezy chips. With over 150 whiskeys to choose from, the perfectly simple, time-honored after-school snacks are all grown up.
