Minnesota Bar Owner Roasts Black Bear To Show Contempt For Chicago

The rivalry between the Bears and Packers and Vikings is intense but largely good-natured. Some, however, take it to a new and disturbing level such as Blake Montpetit, the co-owner of Tiffany Sports Lounge in St. Paul, who announced that he would roast a black bear to show his hatred for Chicago. This comes on the heels of a restaurant owner in Tucson grinding up a lion for tacos.

The bear in question was shot by one of Montpetit’s friends. I realize that there is a legitimate bear hunting season but there is something truly off-putting about using a bear to make this gruesome point. After all, I did not try to grill neighbors of Nordic heritage after the Bears destroyed the Vikings recently in Minnesota. While we certainly had a daily Packers Joke, I did not seek meat packers for a cheesehead fondue.

Montpetit was planning to serve the bear meat to customers but was stopped by health inspectors (there is no department for good taste). A Packers fan, he sent the meat to a party in Wisconsin when he could not serve it in Minnesota.

  1. I am very new to web design as I have no prior experience and know little HTML.. I just want to know what the best software is to purchase to design blogs. I have downloaded CS5 Design Premium with Dreamweaver and Photoshop, but I realize this is a little advanced for me and expensive!!!. Does anyone have suggestions of software or ways to build blogs and websites easily and inexpensive?. . THANKS!.

  2. Fun food fact:

    The reason that Turkey caught on so quickly in Europe after the discovery of the New World is that they’re not as mean as Swans and easier to raise than Peacocks.

    Here’s a famous recipe for Peacock:


    Although the recipe I saw originally involved putting gold leaf between the skin and the roasted bird, and used “Strong spirit” instead of camphire in the mouth of the bird.
