Say "Hi" at Today's Touch Em All Pub Crawl!

Today's the day of Twins Daily's "Touch Em All" Pub Crawl sponsored by Three Olives Vodka and Maestro Dobel Tequila. You're too late for one of the t-shirts or Twins tickets (they were sold weeks ago), but that doesn't mean you can't join us and hang out and talk baseball. You'll also get to witness a Gleeman and the Geek podcast recording in-person, you lucky ducks. Here's the itinerary:
We’ll meet up at noon at Barrio Tequila Bar in Lowertown, which also has been awarded some of the best Mexican food in the Twin Cities. They’re hinting at an all-you-can-eat taco special to gear us up for the trip ahead and a raffle for some free pizzas from Papa Johns. Also, Aaron Gleeman has promised to show us videos of his cat.

From there we’ll jump on the new Metro Transit Green Line to the U of M and Campus Pizza. There will be more food, drinks and a raffle for DiamondCentric t-shirts. Parker will also entertain us with outtakes from the Twins Daily photo shoot by Twin Cities Business Journal.

Our third stop is DiNoko’s BarZia in downtown Minneapolis, home of Chicago Style Deep Dish pizza. There will be yet more specials for the t-shirt wearing crowd and a raffle of four highly sought after Twins Daily Winter Meltdown Pint Glasses. Nick Nelson will impress us all by not rapping.

Finally, we’ll end where we did last year – at Mason’s Barre & Restaurant. If you were with us last year or at the Meltdown or at the Home Run Derby party, you know they always take care of us. We’ll also have a very special raffle…..

At each bar, you’ll be able to get a stamp on your hand. Anyone who is at Mason’s and has all three of the other stamps will be eligible for a special drawing for two pairs of front row Twins tickets for a game later this year.

Finally, you’ll be going to a Twins game with us all where we’ll watch Alex Meyer or Trevor May pitch a perfect game while various Twins players buy us rounds of cocktails*.

We spend enough time online or listening to each other on podcasts. It’s time to meet up. Please get in early so we can make sure we see you there.

*Not totally guaranteed. Hell, none of this it totally guaranteed. We’ll do the best we can.

I'll just say hi from across the river. It looks like you'll get your chance with May. It won't hurt if you bring another 20 runs along too.

It was a great time! Thanks to all of you who made it a fantastic event.

Sorry I missed you!  I was there, too!

Sconnie... Those name tags were too small. I probably walked past you a couple of times and didn't even realize it.

 

I would have certainly stopped... said hello and chatted awhile with you.

 

Bummer... That I didn't get the chance.

 

But Yeah... The Crawl was fun.

How long before Twins Daily starts arranging out of town trips for all Twins road series? I want in on that. Is the Territory Train still a thing that exists?
