Autographed copy of my book, co-authored with Andy Sturdevant, telling the history of the Twin Cities through the stories and images of fifty (50) bars. Beginning in 1839 with Pig's Eye Parrant's saloon, and ending with Lyndale Avenue's CC Club, the book is full of fun anecdotes and stories of Minneapolis, Saint Paul, and the occasional suburb.

In Closing Time, Bill Lindeke and Andy Sturdevant dive into tales from famous and infamous drinking establishments from throughout Twin Cities history. Readers are led on a multigenerational pub crawl through speakeasies, tied houses, rathskellers, cocktail lounges, gin mills, fern bars, social clubs, singles bars, gastropubs, and dives. Featuring beloved bars like Matt’s, Palmer’s, the Payne Reliever, and Moby Dick’s, the book also resurrects memories of long-forgotten establishments cherished in their day. Lindeke and Sturdevant highlight neighborhood dives, downtown nightspots, and out-of-the-way hideaways, many of which continue to thrive today. Closing Time brings together stories of these spaces and the people who frequented them.
