    Yours truly has been assigned the terrible burden of having to sit and drink in a bar for three days and write about it.

    The bar in question is in Minneapolis.

    I will be there on the 6th, 7th, and 8th of July, from the time said bar opens until it closes.

    I need spotters.

    Please submit your resumes via PM. Benefits include some drinks on me. I am an equal-opportunity imbiber.

    Pray for Mojo.

    I believe travelocity, orbitz, et. al. will be deluged with flight request to Minneapolis after the reading of this post

    I didn't know Alcoholics Anonymous even had a periodical. Congrats on the assignment.

    Wish I could be there to lift a pint.

    To make a long story short: The bar, the identity of which shall remain secret until the drinking begins, might be named the Best Bar in America by Esquire magazine, depending on how much fun I have there.

    However, as I will be in a bar, and I will be running a tab on my employer's credit card, I think I should have plenty of fun.

    Just hoping to share the joy, is all.

    I preferred the establishments in St. Paul to those in Minneapolis. Do you have time for a sidebar?

    Do you think your employer would consider picking up the tab at The Loose Moose during the Toronto outing?

    The best bar in America is in Minneapolis? Oh sure, yah.

    Alas, like Luke Skywalker taking aim at the Death Star, I must stay on target.

    No, but I stand by my offer of buying the first round Friday night -- and not at fucking SkyDome -- so long as everybody orders a Canadian beer.
