March Minneapple!

February 28, 2014

It’s still a frozen tundra out there folks so let’s keep the inside goodness going! Last month we were treated to an impromptu Olympics Opening Ceremony viewing and a good time was had by one and all (those Minnesotan curlers sure are dreamy), let’s see what happens this month!

Same drill as per usual, 7pm to 10pm, at the lovely (Minne)Soda Bar (629 Vanderbilt Ave) in Prospect Heights! Warming beers, delicious food, and the friendliest folk in all of NYC will show you a great time!

Can’t wait to see your beautiful faces!

Minneapple Happy Hour – February 7th!

January 31, 2014

Let’s get back to it team!

Come and meet up with your fellow Minnesotans for happy hour drinks, discussions of state fair memories, and hilarious gloating about how freaking cold it is for our friends and families back home!

Friday February 7th at Soda Bar, 629 Vanderbilt Ave, 7pm-10pm!

There’s delicious fried food, we’ll do a quick trivia (for a free beer!), and we’ll have a nice brief singalong of our wonderful Northstar Anthem (for the uninitiated, it is not ‘Hail to Thee’)!

Looking forward to seeing all your beautiful faces and getting 2014 started off right!

See you Friday!

December Minneapple!

December 2, 2013

Hey Folks!

Sorry to say, but there’s not going to be a Happy Hour for December! (though wherever 2 or more are gathered in the name of Minnesota, the Minneapple Happy Hour is there in your midst)

Stay tuned for 2014 Minnesota goodness!

SpooOOOooky Minneapple – November 1st @ LPR!

October 22, 2013

Hey Team!

What a beautiful and spooky October we’ve been having! My mom claimed it snowed in Minnesota yesterday – jokes on them!

Friday November 1st will mark our return to the Gallery Bar at Le Poisson Rouge for the winter! And since it’s the day after Halloween, let’s do this thing right with THREE Competitions!

Most Minneapple Costume!
Whether it’s a Paul Bunyan get-up, a ridiculous corn-dog outfit, or just something that represents ‘Minnesota’ to you – come in your best land of 10,000 lakes costume and then hit the town afterwards to spread the gospel of the motherland!

Most Big Apple Costume!
Feeling like you’ve gotten acclimated enough to show off your city-savvy costume-design skills? I had a friend go as the ‘third rail’ a couple years back covered in plastic rats and lightning bolts and it was truly amazing – but I’m sure you can top it!

Most Delicious Halloween Treat!
This one’s pretty self-explanatory – get in touch with your aunts back home and get them to dig out their recipe book! For inspiration: Candy Corn Cupcakes, Gummy-worm-infested Brownies, Sugar Cookies in the shape of GHOSTS!

All entries will be decided by semi-anonymous voting and include prizes of an “I <MN> NY” t-shirt and free beer! Try and show up by 8 to be included for consideration.

We’ll be wrapping up at 10 as per usual so we can all hit the City for some riotous halloween partying. Let’s show the big city how we do in Minnesota!

And DJ Cherry Spoon will be on the ones and twos – I’m not totally sure if trying to convince her to play monster mash is a good idea or not.

RSVP here and seeya there!

October Minneapple Happy Hour – Tonight!

October 4, 2013

Hot Bird, 7-10 tonight! Enjoy the last surprise summer evening of 2013!

September Minneapple – Brooklyn, Hot Bird 9/6 7-10pm!

September 2, 2013

I know I’m not the only ex-Minnesotan in NYC this week fuming with jealousy over all the State Fair pics popping up on facebook – and frankly, I plan to drink to forget my sorrow that I can’t take the gondola across the fairgrounds, or find out what exciting new technologies the tractor-making industry has fathomed.

And even if you’re one of the lucky ones who got back to the motherland for fried twinkies and sweet martha’s, you’re still welcome at Hot Bird this coming Friday, September 6th in Brooklyn from 7-10 for Minnesota trivia, chex mix, excellent company, and delicious beers.

See you then! RSVP via Facebook if you like!

MinneAugust Happy Hour + Bars!!!

July 26, 2013

I hope that you’ve all had as wonderful of visits back to the motherland as I have this summer. Sadly after a week back at work I’ve got a gigantic hole in my heart that can only be filled by getting ‘moderately’ drunk with fellow Minnesotans and eating ridiculously unhealthy deliciousness!

Luckily…we all have each other!

So come out next Friday to Hot Bird for a dessert bar competition! Bring your blondies, your lemon meringue, your peanut butter poptarts, your mississipi mud, or your snickerdoodles and we’ll have a verifiable feast of rectangular deliciousness! By popular acclaim we’ll decide who’d be the most popular at the lutheran bake-sale and in addition to this extremely desirable title, you will get free beers and an awesome I Minnesota NY T-shirt!

RSVP Here – and let us know if you have any questions below – otherwise I’ll see you there!
