Not a place I imagine will be terribly missed https://kstp.com/kstp-news/local-news/brothers-bar-grill-closes-minneapolis-location

Back in the day, I’d go w/friends to have a drink and people watch. That was about it. The people watching was great.

Back in the mid 90s after college I work 2 years at Erbert & Gerberts. It was across the street from Brother’s and next door to what was the Pickled Parrot. We would make deals with most of those restaurants along 1st Ave and downtown. We would call them or they would call us to trade food. I always felt we got the better deals trading subs for pizza, ribs, hamburgers and so on with the various restaurants.

Trading food/etc was a mainstay in the industry. I worked for Pizza N Pasta at Burnsville Mall in my early 20s as a side gig. Traded pizza for Gloria Jean’s (quad espresso w/mocha; I was doing open-close on weekends; yep, needed the juice to work that shift).

Worked at a Blockbuster Video and we would trade movie rentals for Pizza as well.
