Bert's Joke of The Month

A guy walks into a bar and says to the bartender, "want to hear a funny Viking football joke"? The bartender responds, "listen I am from Minnesota and a karate expert. That guy next to you is from Minnesota and is a former boxer. The bouncer at the door is also from Minnesota and is a former 280 lb wrestler. Are you sure you want to tell that Minnesota Viking Joke?" The guy responded, "heck no, not if I have to repeat it three times!

Southside Laundry  is 
a self-service laundromat with regular and large capacity washers and dryers. Locally owned since 1984. It is open 24 hours/day. Even though it is a self-service, someone is available at  all times if a customer has questions or concerns. We pride ourselves in having a clean environment, air conditioning in the summer months, and plenty of parking.
