    All-Star Game Hometown Rules
    Rule #1: When The Game comes to town, you have a party.
    Rule #2: See Rule #1.
    Far be it from Twins Daily to break the rules.

    Today, July 14th, we're throwing a party at Mason's Barre and Restaurant prior to the Home Run Derby. From 4:30 to 6:30 we'll have a couple of kegs of beer reserved to offer Twins Daily readers to thank you for all your support. We'll be joined by readers and writers of FanGraphs.com and possibly a special guest or two. We'll also be joined by Pete Rukavina, a Twins Daily member who is personally sponsoring the bash just because he's awesome, so please say thank you to Pete if you see him.

    We aren't charging, there are no tickets, and you don't need to RSVP. Given previous events, I'd suggest getting there early if you want one of the free beers. But even if you can't -- the All-Star Game is in town. Let's have a party.

      Well, I was wondering what I was going to do before the home run derby. Now I have an answer. I'm going to probably be there.

      mike, Eno will be there.

      Steve, this sure seems like a good reason to extend to a 3-day weekend.

      It would actually be extending a 3-day weekend in to a 4-day weekend, since we're coming up on Friday. Even then, I'd do it if it were just me, but I'll have 6 members of my family making the trip and most of them don't have the schedule flexibility that I do, unfortunately.

      Next time!

      Flying solo, I'd be there. However, it may take a bit to convince the wife... I already pulled the "All Star Game as our vacation" trick off, anything else might be greedy.

      I'll do my best. Sounds like it'll be fun.

      I'm going to at least drink an ounce of beer for every home run. Probably two ounces per.

      This sounds excellent. Thanks John and TwinsDaily for putting this on. My wife and I will be there with metaphorical bells on. Not real ones - that would just be silly.
