Zombie Pub Crawl
Bad news, Minnesotans. When the zombie invasion reaches our borders, our state is predicted to fall to the undead throngs. Though it may seem unthinkable given how much practice the state has had with Zombie Pub Crawls, Estately says our state isn’t expected to last if zombies take over the nation.
Ghosts and goblins are expected to come out in late October for Halloween, but the beer-craving undead can’t wait that long. The 9th annual Zombie Pub Crawl kicked off at 4 p.m. Saturday afternoon, with 30,000 people expected to participate in this year’s event. New this year, some pretend zombies ate some real brains. Andrew Zimmern’s “A-Z Canteen” prepared pork brain tacos – a dish that’s served in Mexico – for a group of competitive eaters.
It’s almost the weekend, so it’s time to start making some plans. From zombies to scares and even a 1,500- pound pumpkin, these events are all worth adding to your calendar.
In recent years, it wouldn’t stay dead and it also started to stink. This year, the venerable Zombie Pub Crawl — perhaps the Twin Cities’ greatest single contribution to pop culture at large since Prince did backflips in a G-string — is embracing its big, bad self.
It’s Thursday, and that means it’s time to start planning your weekend! Homecoming week is in full swing at the University of Minnesota, but there will be blood nearby at Seven Corners, Washington Avenue and the Cedar/Riverside neighborhood.
It’s that time of year again. The leaves are turning, the air is crisp, the rotted flesh is falling from the faces of the masses lumbering down Washington Avenue looking for a beer buzz. In other words, it’s time for the Zombie Pub Crawl.
