Looking for a great place to hang out in the Twin Cities? Join us at Chester Bird for amazing food (now offering online ordering for takeout), a full bar, outside patio and charitable gambling (Bingo, Pull-Tabs, Meat Raffles, and Virtual Racing). As a nonpartisan, not-for-profit veteran organization, we are able to raise money through charitable gambling in order to give back to Golden Valley, the Twin Cities communities, and other deserving programs. Come for some fun while at the same time helping America's largest veterans service organization - the American Legion! Everyone is welcome as a guest of the Commander.
