The once popular Club Metro in St. Paul closed seven years ago, but the bar may make a comeback — in Somerset, Wisconsin. On Thursday, TheColu.mn spotted a help wanted ad on craigslist that went like this:
“The all new Club Metro (formerly Mac Daddy’s of Somerset Wisconsin) is looking for two full time bar managers for dual venues serving the GLBT community at a single location in Somerset Wisconsin… Looking for individuals that can be effective, attentive and aware of the Gay/Lesbian/Trans community.”
According to the owner, Fred Macalus, this will indeed be a sort of reincarnation of the old club, popular with queer women. “I had [Club Metro] for 5 years before I sold it,” Macalus told us. “And we’ll get ahold of you when we get it open so you can come on down.”
It’s apparently going to be a few more weeks to see the new bar which will be 33 miles from its old spot on Pierce Butler Route in St. Paul.
