Considering Minneapolis is literally, like, a 3 and a half hour drive from where I live, I'm definitely gonna be there.
Dunno if I'll stick around for the Sunday night shebang, since that'd require me to fuck with hotels, but I might shoot for that too if things turn out okay.

Super jittery and nervous about it, but tickets and hotel booked! I'm making a vacation out of it and visiting a bunch of the museums. If anyone is interested in tagging along to the Minneapolis Institute of Art, I'll probably be going Thursday or the Friday before.

This is so exciting!  I get to hang out with nerds AND see the nation's largest book arts center!

If you want to go on a museum tear, I would also like to recommend the Walker, which has the awesome Multiples exhibit on display. The Mercer Cunningham exhibit currently on display won't be there by the time you get in, but the other two exhibits that will be there look fucking awesome. And there's also a bar and a movie theater and HOLY SHIT, GUYS, ART IS SO COOL.

This city is also host to America's first ever basilica, the Basilica of Saint Mary. I haven't gone to it yet, but I'm looking for a good excuse to.

I've tentatively planned to see the MIA, the Walker, Russian art museum, Minnesota Center for Book Arts, and the Weisman (if not too far). I didn't know about the basilica. Depending on when they have service (so I'm not interrupting), and if they're open to visitors, I'd be fun to sketch.

Will this thread be updated once the venue is announced?

Yes. The live show is at 1111 S. Washington.

ALSO: Note on that. Because we're going to be taking over the whole bar, we're also going to need to charge a cover. There's a couple reasons for this, but the most straightforward is that regular-assed people generally don't respond terribly well to walking into a place and seeing a comedy show they weren't expecting. In the past that wasn't a problem, this time around we're going to need to set the expectation that this is A Thing just so we don't have the problem with people not understanding what's going on and trying to do the thing that shitty people do when they're confronted with the very idea of live comedy.

The actual charge is being negotiated, probably somewhere around $10.

People looking to do other stuff in Minneapolis: May I recommend the Bakken Museum? My mom used to take me there, and it was incredible! It's got a lot of weird, interactive exhibits, it's all crammed into one mansion which gives it a "eccentric millionaire" vibe, and the animatronic Frankenstein show is terrifying.
Please And Thanks Ambious

Is the cover money going to the venue? I'll use the code unless the proceeds are going to the F Plus war chest/ liquor fund.

I'm really torn between a road trip from MD to MN and a jetsetting long weekend with some allocated hangover time.

The fund does a couple things: Helps us cover our minimum, pays the bouncer, and pays for some drinks. All that said, don't feel compelled to eschew the ballpit rate. I posted it so you could use it.

I just got my plane tickets, too. Let's high five!!! Assuming you're also a moron who's flying in at 5:45 AM Saturday morning. I'll be too tired to high-five anyone at the actual show.

The Friday before is the first day of the semester for me, too, so I'll be up continuously most likely from 6:00 AM Friday (because I've got a 7:20 AM class) until like 3:00 AM Sunday. I think I might need a nap or two in that time.
