Naked City’s new beer garden in the adjacent parking lot will officially be called the Walrus Beer Garden, in honor of the Walrus blues tavern that was originally on that site before burning down three decades ago.
Local muralist Henry painted a large mural of two walruses on one wall. And the artists who created the colorful arson mural that used to stand next to Taproot Theatre down the street, have been restoring it and added a portrait of John Lee Hooker, who once played at the original Walrus tavern.
The grand opening for the beer garden, at 8564 Greenwood Ave. N., will be Friday, June 21, and Saturday, June 22. That Friday night will feature live jazz. That Saturday will feature an all-you-can-eat crawfish boil for $25 a person, live music and games.
Naked City’s full menu will be available, along with table service, in the beer garden. All ages are welcome, but dogs are not.
