The Pig ’N Whistle at 8412 Greenwood Ave. N. recently closed and will reopen Saturday night as The Angry Beaver.
New owner Tim Pipes, who was born and raised in Canada, tells me he wanted to open a traditional Canadian hockey bar, complete with a lot of hockey and football on the six big screens, and standard French-Canadian fare like poutine.
Pipes says the name comes from Canada’s national animal, the beaver, and “angry,” which refers to hockey.
The Angry Beaver will be open from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Monday through Saturday, and from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. on Sunday. Pipes says the the Angry Beaver will officially open for business at 8 p.m. Saturday.
