Zombies are attracted to brains and Minneapolis has a lot of good ones, therefore they are frequently meandering towards this town. However in Minneapolis for 5 months of the year it's cold enough to keep the undead firmly below ground, therefore we only have a seasonal zombie problem. The zombies amble on over and/or escape the frozen ground every summer in search of the best brains...and well...who can blame them. So, that is why there must be a safe haven for the big brained humans in the warmer months. It's called Donny Dirk's. Note: This is a bar. Official Site
