***Please note: this event occurs on a monthly basis. Every third Thursday of the month. There is no area for our specific group, but it's a great way to meet the community and others in the group.
+++Following Happy Hour Squared (details below) we will be meeting at Rock Bottom Brewery across the street. Happy Hour Squared roughly ends at 7pm
A happy hour like no other. Yes it's the usual happy, but with a focus on helping others while enjoying yourself - that's Happy Hour Squared.
Ever wanted to help the Twin Cities community and have a beer at the same time? Well now is your chance. We are joining The Brave New Workshop (http://theatre.bravenewworkshop.com/) and FINNEGANs, Inc (http://finnegans.org/) (charitable beer company) to reinvent happy hour, with the goal of feeding the hungry and serving the community. The innovative event will be held at the Brave New Workshop event centre in downtown Minneapolis and is dubbed "Happy Hour Squared (HH2)."
As a result of HH2 events thus far, more than 30,000 sandwiches have been made and immediately distributed to the hungry by Mr. Law's MRD 363 Days Food Program (http://www.363days.org/allanlaw.html) (documentary below).
Attendees can show up anytime between 5-7pm, enjoy a FINNEGAS beer, share a laugh, and make some sandwiches. These sandwiches made at HH2 are handed off to Mr. Law immediately at the event and go to feed the hungry on the streets that night.
Attendees can make a donation of cash or non-perishable food to FINNEGANS Reverse Food Truck (there will be barrels placed at the event for donating) for its partnership with the Emergency Food Shelf Network. Anyone donating to FINNEGANS gets a two-for-one voucher for a FINNEGANS beer at the event, and all HH2 attendees are invited to stay for the 7:30 performance at the BNW's main stage for a discounted rate (subject to availability).
Here a few videos about Mr. Law's MRD 363 Days Food Program and the Happy Hour Squared.
