Run for decades by Bernie and Marian Meyer, The Red Lantern was a legendary fixture at UWL at the north end of 3rd Street. Touted as the “Blast off Capitol of the World” (named for one of their signature drinks; the other being kamikazes), the small bar featured daily happy hours, with 25¢ taps (and of course $5 pitchers of the aforementioned kamikazes). The Meyer’s named the Lantern after the annual tradition of lighting a red lantern above the main building on campus — which was started during the Revolutionary War to help guide students back to campus. But, for most, the memories centered around the killer cheese curds and onion rings (and beer), and of course, Bernie himself playing the bottles!
