Investigating Mick Jagger's Minneapolis visit
It looks like Mick Jagger was just kidding when he ticked off a list of restaurants he visited while his Rolling Stones were in town last month.
- The rock legend posted photos at dives in other cities, but pictures in Minnesota have yet to surface since his Oct. 24 concert at U.S. Bank Stadium.
Yes, but: Two of the three restaurants he claimed to have visited told Audrey they received out-of-the-ordinary takeout orders that night.
- 5-8 Club reported a "roadie-type guy" picking up a massive amount of different kinds of Jucy Lucy's. He left a hefty tip.
- Matt's Bar often gets large takeout orders, but two people "with the accents and nice, valuable jewelry" picked up a big one that day, according to the general manager, Amy, who asked to only go by her first name. Security footage was blocked by Halloween decorations, she said.
Of note: Grumpy's couldn't be reached for comment, but his visit was news to the Northeast bar.
What they're saying: "We noticed a big jump in business after his mention, so even if he didn't eat a Jucy Lucy, it was really nice of him to talk about us," 5-8 general manager Penny Jernberg said.
- "We didn't officially land him, but in our heart, we think it was a visit of some kind," Amy added.
