    I said something in the NYC meet up, but I know we have a few guys from the Midwest. So maybe we should do a meet up of our own. I would like to suggest South Bend In. But as I have said only because I'm poor. I figure Chicago, or Indianapolis would go over bigger with more people.

    But throw out mid western destinations, and of course dates that work well for our mid westerners.

    I would only suggest South Bend for the suicidally depressed who have no desire to go on living anymore.

    Not a whole helluva lot to do.

    Chicago and Indy are great choices, though. But, expensive, as most could easily guess.

    I'd actually do indy since it's so close, maybe Chi town if my friend who visits his girl every few weeks or so is going for the weekend. I am only down for Minnesota if there is a hunting cabin and deer hunting involved, a free cabin.


    Other than that, fuck it, I hear Detroit and St Louis are hot spots!!!

    I know there are at least six of us Minnesotans who are regulars here. And if we timed it right we could probably get Hooker here too seeing how her husband's from here as well.

    Those talks are in the works. I'm down for a Minneapolis meet-up. Hell, could probably do it around the same time as the others. I can fit drinking on the weekend in my schedule pretty easily.

    I'd be up for Indy more so than I would Chicago or Minneapolis. I moved, so really I'm closest to Louisville KY now.

    I haven't had too much time to explore bars in the Twin Cities yet so my experiences are pretty much limited to Dinkytown and Northeast. Any suggestions?

    There are a lot of options. NE probably would have the type of bar that the idiots here would enjoy. Lots of beer and stiff drinks. A place like the Bulldog, Gasthoff's, Nye's, or heck even downtown could be fun. Uptown you may have to deal with either yuppies or college kids.

    I will most likely be putting the castle on Minnetonka for a while this winter. That won't be until late December or early January, though. I don't think people want to wait that long.

    Deer hunting is a pretty family oriented event here and not many families would welcome a bunch of drunk strangers. Goose or coyote hunting on the other hand . . .

    Agreed. The reason I didn't say anything sooner is because I'm pretty sure the midwest contingent is nothing but a bunch of sausages. I don't know the NE bar scene at all - just Uptown (don't judge, I used to work at Lake & 5th and it was convenient). I'm now getting to know downtown pretty well - and I've learned that it's expensive.

    Every time I go to Uptown, I want to punch some fucking hipster. I worked in 'ol Nordeast for the past year and it's like Kratos said, lots of beer and stiff drinks. Good old bars, good bartenders. I used to work next to the (new) Psycho Suzi's and it isn't bad.

    You guys are making me wish I still lived in Minneapolis, and I've been gone for 12 years.

    So let's get drunk and punch hipsters. I fail to see the problem.

    BRILLIANT! Let's park ourselves outside Bryant Lake Bowl and put out the word that: for every punch a hipster lets us throw, we'll buy them a PBR tallboy. They'll be lining up around the block.

    I would drink and watch you punch hipsters. We could do it like some idiot dare show.

    Punching hipsters is like eating Lays potato chips. You can't punch one just once. You have to dig deep and keep on pounding until you've ground his face into hamburger.

    I'm not going to go broke buying every goddamn hipster in Minneapolis a case of the shittiest beer on the planet.
