Today’s the day!

The 5-8 Club in south Minneapolis is offering 90-cent burgers to celebrate its 90th birthday. And 90-cent beers (a Leinenkugel’s ale), along with 90-cent fries and 90-cent onion straws, the kitchen’s onion ring-like delicacy. 

90 cents won’t buy you the restaurant’s signature cheese-stuffed Juicy Lucys, but it will get you the classic, single-patty version.

“We’re also tapping a keg of Bent Paddle Brewing Co.’s Old Fashioned,” said company president Jill Skogheim, referring to the Duluth brewery’s bourbon barrel-aged beer with cherry and orange accents. That will cost more than 90 cents though.

And of course, there will be cake. Free cake to boot. While supplies last.

Some of the festivities – that 90-cent ale, the free cake -- are being extended to the metro area’s three other members of 5-8 family: 5-8 Grill & Bar in Champlin (6251 Douglas Court N.), 5-8 Tavern & Grill in Maplewood (2289 E. Minnehaha Av.), the 5-8 Grill & Tap in West St. Paul (1741 S. Robert St.). 

The original 5-8 is located at 5800 Cedar Av. S. in Minneapolis.

Happy birthday!
