Sometimes it is difficult to measure the impact of my mostly unpaid volunteer blogging efforts, but with Donny Dirk's Zombie Bar I actually have hard data to figure out my impact. One of the waitresses told me that, of 30 customers who came to the bar one evening, she asked each of them how they heard about Donny Dirk's prior to its grand opening. Five of the customers said they heard about it from Johnny Northside Dot Com. One customer who heard from the blog was...
City Council Member Don Samuels, who recently commented about Donny Dirk's on his Facebook page, as follows:
Today, Sondra and I went to the newest hot spot in North Minneapolis, Donny Dirk's. This is the same Management as Psycho Susie's in the Northeast. This is the former, infamous Stand Up Franks, redone. It is a totally transformed, high-class operation. Classy waitresses in black gowns and bar tenders polite and winsome. Two big guys guard the doors. The decor is OUTSTANDING and comfortable. Nothing better in the city.

I thought I would share a picture of the "two big guys" guarding the doors. As you can see, their bouncer outfits are special and, well, zombie-fied. The blood may not be real, but check out those tattoos.
