Winter Meltdown Presale Is Right Now Thru XMas Eve

Twins fans, Twins writers, Twins executives, Twins prospects and Twins players all have joined Twins Daily's Winter Meltdown. And thru Christmas Eve you can reserve your spot for, well, kinda for free.

This week only, through 12/24, you can buy presale tickets to January 20th's Winter Meltdown at Brothers Bar & Grill (4:30-7:30 PM). It's the Saturday of Twins Fest, so you can just walk over; it's only two blocks from Target Field.

This week ONLY, we charge $15, but it's basically free. That's because the $15 is just a prepayment on two 612 Brew craft beers and the Winter Meltdown pint glass you'll get at the event. (We have to charge something up front, because we need to know how many people are really coming.) This deal ends this week and this event has sold out every year. When we offer tickets again in 2018, along with details of who our guests are, the cost will be $30. But we are offering this deal to people that visit the site in the dead of winter, or follow us on email or Twitter. That's our tribe.
Besides the pint glass and two free 612 Brew beers, we have a Twins player come join us. We're not letting the cat out of the bag yet who our special guests are this year until after the new year, but in the past they've included LaTroy Hawkins, Tim Laudner, Scott Erickson, Jacque Jones and Mike Pagliarulo. There will also be some sweet raffle and door prizes, plus lots of time to talk Hot Stove and order some of Brothers great food.

Warning: These sell out. They have every year. So even if your holiday shopping is done, you might want to grab some ASAP. Or let your family know THIS is what you really want. Or buy a pack and give your friends, family and coworkers a night to remember in the dead of winter. We'll see you there.

1) If you ordered tickets, you just need to show up with ID. We'll check you in.

2) Guests should be announced the first week January.

I bought these as gifts for my husband and his brother. How do I make sure they’ll be able to check in? The form didn’t ask for names.

If you want, you can email me their names at john@bonnes.com. But they can also just ask for them under your name.

Any news on who the special guests will be yet?

It should be announced soon. We have a few names in the mix but are working out the details.
