December Happy Hour!
I hope that a number of you got to go back to the motherland for lovely turkey-feasting this past weekend! Personally I was stuck out here on the east coast without a flake of snow in sight!
Luckily, December is almost here and our next monthly happy hour is only a few days away! From the Facebook Page:
While you are home recovering from your Thanksgiving food coma, be sure to swipe your mom’s best bar recipe for the December Minnesota Monthly. Only Minnesotans know what “bars” are, and while even we can’t adequately describe them, we know them when we see them.
In addition to the usual happy hour specials and Minnesota Trivia by our quiz master, Bryce, we are hosting a Holiday Bar (and cookie) Bake-off. For those hotdish contestants who didn’t take home a win last month, now is your chance to redeem yourselves. And for those of you who get calls from the gas company because you have yet to turn on your oven, you can volunteer to determine who takes home the fabulous prizes (that I will likely buy in the Mpls airport this weekend).
See you fine folks on Friday!
I’ll definitely be there, and I certainly hope you all bring your best recipes for sugary goodness!
On another note, for those of you who didn’t get back to MN this past weekend, I’d like to share one of the true wonders of this 21st century digital everywhere. Some of you may have had the pleasure to experience “Call-In Scrabble” on Minneapolis Public Access in years past (they’ve since stopped the scrabble games due to the lack of serious competition from Mpls public-access-watchers), and may be happy to hear that the tradition has been continuing with the call-in animation show ‘Philo’:
I want to do a proper write-up of these fine folks at some point in the future, but for now I’ll point you to the streaming webcast of awesomeness and suggest you tune in on December 13th from 10:30 to 11:30 Eastern time.
Hope to see you all on Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
