Last Chance! Sales Stop Today!

Here's your link! Best of luck on getting your tickets before they sell out!   This is over $50 worth of stuff – game ticket, parking, t-shirt, beer, brewery tour plus prizes – for only $30, plus we just got several sweet 612 Brew sweatshirts to give away!

Oh, PLUS we’re running the mascot race at the game. That’s right, you’ll be able to cheer on your favorite member of the Twins Daily crew as they race in the mascot race at Target Field. We do not know which mascots each of us will be, which brings us to the contest portion of the event…

During the crawl, each person will get to pick who (the mascot, not the Twins Daily member) will win. During the race, you’ll have something real to cheer for, because from we'll give this 1987 World Series Championship replica ring to someone who picks the winner!

Again, get you tickets fast. They went on sale at 8AM, we routinely sell out, and in any case the offer ends Monday. It is Saturday, 9/24, a beautiful September Minneapolis Saturday afternoon, from noon to late. And you get:

1. A high-quality men’s/women’s triblend Twins Daily Pub Crawl t-shirt (value $15) with our official tongue-in-cheek “Crawl to 100 Losses” logo (below).
2. A free brewery tour (value $6) at Modist Brewery (1st stop, noon-2:00 PM) at 12:30, 1:00, or 1:30.
3. Free parking (value ($10) at The Freehouse (2nd stop, 2:00-4:00) for the duration of the event and game.
4. A free craft 612 Brew (value $6) at Darby's (3rd stop, 4:00-6:00)
5. Entrance into our raffle of Twins sports memorabilia (value ~$200) from AME Sports, including player plaques and a replica 1987 World Series ring!
6. A ticket to the 6:00 Twins game (value $14), where you’ll watch the Twins Daily gang race in the mascot race.

We are also offering a package where you get everything except the Twins ticket (if you have your own) for $15 and a package where you get just the t-shirt ($20, includes shipping). The link will be posted in this story first thing tomorrow morning. We’ll see you then AND on the 24th.

I'd like to wager $500 on Parker winning said race.

8:7 odds sounds about right.

Got 'em. I will have to vote for Babe, of course.

no one better vote for Skeeta. If you ever cheer for a mosquito in any way, shape or form, I hate you...

Go Bullseye! (from my hometown of Roseville!)

I am torn. On one hand, I could never reveal my true identity. On the other hand...I gotta have one of those shirts.

I have always suspected Shorty. But, you can just buy the shirt only. It's an option on the link.

So I got my ticket, but I have a question... what do we need to bring the day of the crawl? Our email receipt of payment, or is our name some how on a list. Please let me know what I (and others in my party) should bring. Thanks!

You won't be older than everyone else. My bro (spinowner) is coming with me ... and he's older than you by a few months. :)

How acceptable is it to go solo?

 

Or to go, but from a safe distance, making observations from behind a newspaper with eyeholes in it?

Should be fine, everybody will be communicating via electronic devices anyway... That reminds me, who is going to transcribe group commentary for the game thread? 

 

Haha, no but really, people seem to become pretty fast friends at these things, that is unless you're pining for Gardy the sequel.

I'll be solo for the first stop and into the second or third until my bro can join me.

You can pretend to come with me if it helps. I'll be the guy wearing the Twins Daily t-shirt with Herbie wearing a paper bag on his head.

You can't miss me.

You better start crawling now if you're going to arrive on time.

Everyone wears their real names and you match them to their username.
It's easier by about the 3rd stop.
