There are a few Bismarck bars that make day drinking so much fun, you end up drinking through the evening as well.

I've done this more than I'd like to admit. You go out for brunch then all of a sudden it's 10 p.m. If we have a free Saturday, my friends and I are more than likely out for food and a drink(s). The problem is we have a hard time going home because these Bismarck bars make it so much fun!

    The Pond Bar & Restaurant

    The Pond Bar and Restaurant is an easy place to lose track of time at. During the warm months you can sit on their patio, control the touch tunes and easily spend a majority of your day there. On Sundays, they even have endless mimosas from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 2-4-1 wells and drafts all day.

    JL Beers

    JL Beers is my weakness. If I've had a little too much fun the night before, I want a Rajun Cajun burger and a cold beer the next day. The problem? That beer turns into 3 or 4 and at that point, you might as well stay for another round of burgers.

    The Starving Rooster

    This actually happened to me very recently. I went to listen to some live music and have breakfast on a Saturday morning. 6 hours later I was sitting at the same bar table. It's not my fault that their iced coffee cocktails lead to one or two Moscow mules... and maybe a quesadilla.

    Blarney Stone Pub

    This list cannot even exist without mentioning Blarney Stone. Why? BLOODY MARY BREAKFAST. There is actual breakfast involved. On Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., you get a free bloody mary or mimosa with the purchase of a breakfast entree. If you think you're stopping after one mimosa, you're totally wrong.

    Stadium Sports Bar & The Lodge

    This one is dangerous because there are two different bars at one location. It is hands down, one of the best places to watch football. That alone will keep you there a few hours. From the drink specials to the food, you'll be at the Stadium Sports Bar and The Lodge all day long.
