Upon arrival, please be conscious of where you are parking. We prefer to not have a dozen vehicles parked on top of each other directly in front of our establishment. A few years ago, my wife and I started parking a few blocks away from where we were going, then we walk to our destination. This is our suggestion to you. we double dare you to enjoy who you’re with, get some exercise, walk and talk, hold hands, observe the shit you didn’t know you maybe did or didn’t need to see. Whatever you do, please be respectful. Unwanted attention draws attention that is unwanted.
Please be respectful of the other local businesses as well as the residents. If we need to go further into detail with this, you have more important things to do than relax and drink. Be the change you want to see in the world. Do not be the person who won’t change their ways for nothin, please have a nice day somewhere else. I’m sure that someone is super fun at parties.
After the doorperson checks the ID you have out and ready, gently breach our back door. As you so cautiously ease through that dirty hallway (which also happens to be our exit route) proceed to the stairs leading to the Cardinal Room, look around, take it all in. Easter eggs in November, you say? You May continue talking. This rivals the most exclusive establishments in Minneapolis, we don’t need to prove tha BFM is one of our bartenders and on our payroll - IFYKYK IITYWYBMAD
NO CELLPHONES ARE ALLOWED WHATSOEVER.
The science people have proven there are benefits to being healthy. Apparently there is evidence to back this up. When we actively engage with others our bodies respond by physically expelling dopamine and serotonin, these help us feel happiness and joy which improves our quality of life. We encourage conversation and healthy debates. Smile, be kind, ask questions, listen, don't be afraid of eye contact.
We allow staring at the bottom of your glass, but this is one we dnt recommend.
Put a record on, play some cards, tell your best joke, do whatever you want, live your most medium life.
Check your phone at the door. Leave it in your car. Do not bring it into the Cardinal Room. Anyone caught with a phone will be assumed were taking photos. Anyone taking photos or assumed otherwise gets a lifetime supply of not coming here anymore.
Have you no cash? Have you no common sense? Where is that secret hundred stashed in your wallet? Don't be cheap, no one likes that. Cannot use venmo without your phone. This is why you paid us in advance. We promise we thought at least some of this through.
Lets say you’re “just a little tipsy” then you’re not driving home, someone else is. It’s the right thing to do. Your vehicle will be more safe where it is than with you inside of it. No one likes anyone carelessly doing the the wrong thing, we will always help arrange for a safe ride home. We aren’t mad. Don’t be embarrassed. Be confident in your healthy decision making skills.
