Superior, WI – The Thirsty Pagan

We used to call it “soup town” tho I have no knowledge as to why.  My best memories of Superior is that it was a bridge away from my home town, and for a period, had a legal drinking age of 18.  We used to frequent one particular bar, and a glass of beer was 15 cents, and a mixed drink was 45 cents.  Yes, you read that right.

The bar was called Tommy Byrnes, and it’s long gone, and so are those kind of prices in these days of fancy pants infused spirits and microbrew beers.  I don’t drink much, so it doesn’t really bother me that there are $16 cocktails in an awful lot of places.

Kawika and I hit the Thirsty Pagan after a drive out in the country to catch another set of Todd Eckart, crooner extraordinare.

We ordered a pizza with the works on it, sausage, pepperoni, onions, mushroom, peppers, which was a wide variation off the pizza path for us.

It’s a thicker crust, with a buttery flavor, quality toppings, and premium priced.
