From their website:
Every legend has to start someplace. Ours begins with Al Baisi who played for the Chicago Bears in the 1940s. He was a tough, uncompromising SOB. And we have no idea what the people who didn’t like him thought. In 1949, Al partnered with Larry Lehner to run the joint and the club became known as Alary’s Club Bar, (Al & Larry – mystery solved.) By the early 1960s Lehner was out of the picture but Al continued on. Al passed unexpectedly on April 15th, 2005. Neither pro football nor this world will see many more like him.
Alary’s shows up early and often in the newsletter of the St. Paul Musicians’ Union.
