You'll find a curbside pick-up like none other in the Twin Cities at the Black Hart of St. Paul.

The University Avenue bar on the steps of Allianz Field is a popular haunt for Minnesota United fans as well as being known for its LBGTQ-friendly vibe and evening drag shows.

And the bar is ensuring there is still work available for its drag queens by enlisting their help to serve the bar's food and drink curbside pick-up customers.

The bar is now able to offer wine and beer with its to-go orders following a new rule passed into law at the end of Friday, which allows restaurants and bars to sell alcohol to its takeout and curbside pick-up customers.

The bar's inaugural drag delivery staffer will be Dina Delicious (pictured above). From now on, orders placed online between 4 and 9:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays will result in a drag delivery.

"We really miss our people, and our people miss having a place to go, so hopefully this will be a fun way for people to support us and the community we’ve built," said owner Wes Burdine.

The Black Hart's menu includes chicken baskets, cheese curds, fish n' chips, and Heggies Pizza.

You can place your order at Blackhartstp.com and pick up via car, bike or walk up in the parking lot directly west of 1415 University Avenue West in St. Paul.

You can then call 651-528-8028 when you arrive and a drag performer "will sashay your way with your order."
