The Townhouse Bar is probably one of the first places a t-girl in Minnesota visits. It’s almost a rite of passage, in a way. The bar changed owners recently and is now known as The Black Hart of Saint Paul and is meant to be a soccer bar since our new professional soccer team, The Minnesota United, will soon open their new stadium just a few blocks away from it.
A friend of mine recently visited the bar with her friend and as she was leaving, she was approached by someone who got their attention by telling them they looked gorgeous. I’m sure they did, we ALL look gorgeous, but he came closer to them as they were trying to get into their cars. He propositioned her and thankfully she was able to get away safely.
Needless to say she was very disturbed and frightened by what had happened. She asked me to post her experience here so those who frequent The Black Hart can be on guard in case he returns. This is also a reminder that we can be harassed at any time, even someplace we may visit on a regular basis. Thank goodness she left with a friend.
I have reached out to The Black Hart so they can be aware of what happened. If you frequent The Black Hart and something like this happens to you, please let the management know.
