Zombie Truck!


Sue and I are scouting out possible locations to toast Travis McGee’s 50th anniversary with some big martinis. We want to find a spot near a body of water. After all, Trav lived at a marina.

A couple days ago we had lunch at Psycho Suzi’s Motor Lounge, right on the banks of the mighty Mississippi. Clearly an old supper club repurposed as a latterday, ironic Tiki Lounge. If you like those fruity but potent drinks of yore like a Mai Tai or Zombie, Suzi’s is your spot. Also, Suzi has great burgers and pizza. (Suzi’s was featured on Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.)

On the way out of the joint we encountered this blood-curdling warning on the side of a food truck.


Undead Frank’s apparently spreads zombie culinary terror to mobile locations around the Twin Cities.


We escaped with our lives, back into the parking lot, where this sign presides.


If it ever warms up, and we are able to dodge the undead, this looks like a good place to toast Travis, Meyer, and the Busted Flush.

  1. How un-Minnesotan these joints sound. You’ll have to try the food truck and let us know how the food is (assuming you survive the experience!).

    • Since it’s run by zombies, I rather doubt that it will have a lot of choices for vegetarians. The last time we encountered a zombie in a restaurant, it was a drink at the old Waikiki Room in the Leamington Hotel. I can’t remember what spirits and juices went into a zombie, but it was potent enough that we had to take a cab home that night.
