ST. PAUL (WCCO) – The popular St. Paul bar and eatery Casper’s & Runyon’s Nook is reportedly aiming to reopen next week, after a fire forced the bar’s temporary closure.

Minneapolis Public Radio reports the owners are hoping to reopen on May 5.

An overheated cooler started the fire in the bar and restaurant last December.

The restaurant, located on Hamline Avenue, across the street from Cretin-Derham Hall High School, has been around since 1938.

Their specialty was the Juicy Nookie, a burger stuffed with cheese. The restaurant was even featured on the Food Network show, Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.
