Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
One of the popular open-air bars-on-wheels operated by Twin Cities PedalPub tipped onto its side Thursday after making a right turn in downtown Minneapolis, sending two passengers to the hospital and slightly injuring several others.
James Walker of Woodbury, who was among several co-workers pedaling the vehicle in the final 15 minutes of a bar crawl, said the vehicle came fast down a hill and flipped onto its side as the driver steered into a turn at the corner of 1st Street and 5th Avenue S. No other vehicles were involved.
Walker and others immediately righted the vehicle to free those trapped beneath it on their bar stools.
The injured were all conscious, but one was moaning in pain and others reported having smacked their heads on the pavement, and scrapes and bruises, he said.
The incident occurred just after 2 p.m. near Mississippi riverfront running and biking paths and the RiverWest condo building. Photos of the toppled pub, with passengers lying in the road and beer pooling in the street, flew up on Twitter and Facebook, prompting animated discussions.

A proud city of gays, Muslims, blacks and drunks.

I always thought this was a stupid idea, but at least they are insured. That won't stop the 'injured' parties from suing though. Do something dumb, make some free money. It's the American way. LOL

Yes, but how do you feel about the pedal pub?
We're waiting with baited breath for your opinion!
How did you know about my drinking (occasional beers) and my family (only child, parents both dead)? Your crystal ball must be broken, like the rest of you! lol Sure hope your words of wisdom don't get deleted.
