Betty Danger's – which will feature Ferris wheel dining – opens Friday

Betty Danger's Country Club, the much-anticipated Northeast Minneapolis restaurant from the creator of Psycho Suzi's, is opening at 5 p.m. Friday.

The attention-grabber at the new joint is the Ferris wheel (though the restaurant isn't using that terminology) out front, which – once open – will allow customers to dine and drink in a carriage.

It's a "Mechanical Tree" that "vertically rotates and stops at different perch points," its website says. "The Danger," as it's called, will not be available to ride Friday, however. It's slated to begin operation April 1. Tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

(Note: A website featuring a menu, hours and more informaion was active around 10 a.m. Friday. But 25 minutes later it was replaced by the "Coming soon" graphic that's been there for the past few months.)

A few tweets about its opening have been sent out – but the spot's website and social media page make no specific mention of a grand opening. A staffer with Betty Danger's confirmed with BringMeTheNews a 5 p.m. opening is on track.

WCCO reports the same.

Betty Danger's – located at 2501 Marshall St. NE– is the brainchild of Leslie Bock, and the latest in her line of offbeat grub hubs – which include Psycho Suzi’s, Undead Frank’s and Donny Dirk’s. She’s also behind Saint Sabrina’s, a tattoo and piercing parlor.
