If you do make it, you'll be very happy to hear that 612 Brew has stepped up to be the primary sponsor of the Twins Daily Winter Meltdown. Attendees will be getting their choice of Six, 612 Brew's American pale ale, or Rated R, their Rye IPA (Editors note: and Twins Geek's personal favorite). Both are brewed locally out of their NE Minneapolis Brewery.
And of course you'll be able to get as much other food and drink as you want from Mason's, who has been the best event partner possible. You'll especially want to support them if you bought tickets today, because they closed down to make those extra tickets possible.
The Pint Glasses
612 Brew has also really outdone themselves on the pint glasses, as you can see above. And I'm afraid the only way you can get one of these beauties is to buy a ticket and come to the event. The extra tickets we sold have soaked up most of th extra inventory.
We've got three fantastic speakers who not only have firepower, they have brainpower. You're going to love listening to:
Click on the links to see the announcement about each one and learn more. And notice that we're starting fairly early in the event.
I probably should have started with this, huh? I get excited sometimes.
First, it's Saturday, Jan 25th from 5:00-8:00 PM at Mason's Bar and Restaurant on 6th and Hennepin. You can walk over from TwinsFest. Second, you won't be receiving a ticket - just show up with your name and ID.
More Free Stuff
612 isn't the only sponsor that wants to throw stuff at Meltdown attendees. And I rather like the symmetry of these new two. Proximo Spirits is going to be giving away tequila - and Uber is going to be giving you rides home.
Proximo will be handing out samples of Maestro Dobel, "The Diamond Tequila" which is one of the nation's fastest growing ultra-premium tequilas. If you are a tequila connoisseur, you probably want to know that it is sourced from single estates, double-distilled, and matured in Hungarian White Oak barrels. If not, you'll want to know that the samples are free.
And Uber will be offering a $20 credit to anyone that signs up at the Meltdown to try Uber out. (Tip: In fact, you can sign up for it even if you aren't at the Meltdown, right now, by clicking here.) If you're not familiar with Uber, they're an app that connects you with a driver via your smartphone. You can track the arrival of your ride, payment is cashless (no need to tip!), and you’ll receive a text message when your driver arrives.
And Yet More Free Stuff
And throughout the event we'll be giving away prizes via a raffle. They include Twins tickets, 612 gear, Mason's Gift cards, Maestro Dobel gear, Uber rides and three items that Jon Paley is donating:
- Ballplayer: Pelotero DVD signed by directors and Miguel Sano
- "ask me about my #powerbanana T-shirt" (http://t.co/QUmur6xzli)
- Ballplayer: Pelotero FULL SIZED movie Poster signed by directors and Miguel Sano.
Whew. I think that covers it. If you can make it, please introduce yourself to us all. We can't wait to meet you. And if you have any questions, please add them to the comments below. Thanks!
