Saturday night party…

Okay, so it’s not your traditional Saturday night in MNBeer-land, but I’m going to share my Saturday night plans because I started this site, and dammit, I can.

Tomorrow night I’ll be working & hanging out at Hoigaard’s 3rd Annual Ski Fashion Party to benefit Children’s Cancer Research Fund. This event has consumed many of my office hours over the past week or so, and I’m glad that it’s finally coming to fruition (not to mention that I’ll get to move all of the silent auction goodies out of my office!). So, if you don’t have better plans and feel like throwing $45 at a good charity, come on down to Hoigaard’s at 7pm on Saturday. The food is by brix bistro & wine bar and there will be winter/ski fashion show, dj, dancing, give-aways and a huge silent auction. If you like ski & winter gear, this is the place my friends… silent auction items ranging from downhill ski packages to lift tickets to a 4-day trip to Moonlight Basin… hell, even an opportunity to brew with Jeff at Flat Earth Brewing Co. for a day. There are some other ways to win cool prizes as well… things like $50 at the Happy Gnome (x2, actually), Great Waters, etc., etc.

Did I mention bonfires and s’mores? 🙂 Now for full disclosure, the beer sponsor isn’t one of local craft breweries… we tried, but this weekend just happens to coincide with GABF, so as you can imagine, most of our Twin Cities friends are there. That being said, it’ll still be a good time. I’ll be busy, but it’s good work for a good cause, so if you don’t already have better plans and feel like throwing down $45, come on down… if not, please stop by about 1am as I will probably need a ride home! 😉

    Sounds like a good time. If I wasn’t attending a cheese party I’d head on over. Instead I’ll be enjoying some great WI cheese, a growler of Great Water’s It’ll Make You a Man IPA and whatever other tasty treats are offered up. Here’s to a good Saturday night for all!

    I had a really great time despite the lack of local craft beer… Thankfully Hoigaard’s is down the mall from Liquor Barrel, so some Surly Furious magically found its way into my hands!
