The Willkommen Committee of the New Ulm Area Chamber of Commerce stopped into Lamplighter Family Sports Bar & Grill, located at 214 N Minnesota, to welcome Herb Knutson as the new owner! Knutson also owns a campground near Isanti, and is working on building a bar near Long Lake as well. Knutson said he chose to buy the restaurant in New Ulm after visiting the city during the Parade of Lights last year. He said it’s such a beautiful, unique place it reminded him of a “Hallmark Town.” Knutson has implemented a few changes so far, including adding on a back patio area, opening on Sundays, and offering specials such as an all-you-can-eat fish night, a meat raffle and pull tab happy hour from 3pm-6pm. They also have a text club to join for daily specials (text the word lamplighter to 51660).
