A "live" review of Turp's

This is a first for Midnight Sun: Commenter ryan97ou sat inside Turp's last night and reviewed the new Mount Vernon sports bar on the spot. Kids these days with their iPhones and such. If you missed his comments, I have copied them here ...

Ok so I'm live reviewing this joint right now and have to say this place is actually pretty cool. Nice with wood floors and 5 HD tv's with a chalk board with a list of their weekday specials and what beer they have. Ppl seem pretty cool so now I kind of feel bad about making fun of the name.

Thursday night is UB night. Which is basically HH all night which includes half price nachos, bucket of 5 tall boy PBR's for 5.50.

Menu looks ok. Deff will be checkin out this joint on sundays. Nice booths and wider than u would expect from the outside.

Who knew

Domestic beers are all 3.25 and imports are all 4.25. Monday is half price wings, tuesday is half price pizza and wed is half price burgers. So even if u don't like sports those are pretty good prices

You had me at half-price nachos.

So where is this place again? Like, on what block? Of what street?

Sorry, but I've been distracted.

Sorry, forgot to put the address. It's 1315 North Charles St.

Here is their web site:

I was sitting outside of “Turps” under the awning to get out of the rain/sun during Artscape. A young man handing out fliers for the new "Turps" offered my girlfriend and I pull from his hip flask. We declined its kind of gross. I am glad we did because not 5 minutes later he puked all over the ground where he was sitting and on his shoes. He did not seem to care he was "The cousin of the owner". We asked to have someone come and clean it up. We were there another 20 Min and no one touched it. They even let people sit at the puke table. I felt it was my duty to let their patrons know they were standing in vomit. I bet the food is yummy and staff are great.

Fronti nulla fides

Don't judge a book by it's cover

did someone say nachos

They also said last night that there will be 30 cent wings for monday night football, I went in skeptical, came out pretty impressed.
