Let the “Greening” begin!
Like all of us, we at the Prodigal Public House remain concerned for the safety and well-being of all. We will be closed as a result until the city of Minneapolis gives us the green light. But we opened the Public House because we wanted to help create and celebrate community. We will seek new ways to do so until our doors re-open. Please send us any of your ideas! Also “Thank You” for your support of the pub and for making it such a rich experience for us.
We will be back together!
Randi and Jeff

Our story begins in a bar, in an era of jean skirts, big bangs, tight jeans, rugby shirts, Bruce Springsteen, and the tv show Cheers-a fictional bar where “you want to go where everyone knows your name.” I was the bartender and Jeffrey was the restaurant manager. This tall, dark, and handsome ping-pong playing Pennsylvania-raised seminary student stole my heart. He likes to think it was his big ol’ turquoise belt buckle and our matching white cowboy boots that caught my attention. Not so, cowboy. I fell for his easy-going ways and his love for celebrating life. What also began in that humble establishment was our fondness for a gathering place and a tiny whisper of a dream to create one ourselves. Over thirty years later, our dream is a fully-formed reality.
