    I would host, but I'll be watching it from a bar stool at Societe :)

    My place may be an option if there aren't others ( I live in a quaint 1br apartment in Uptown with my gf and dog). Are there any places that allow outside bottle shares. If not we can get a bar list going

    My place may also be an option. However, I live downtown, and there isn't a whole lot of parking for visitors so it might be best somewhere else.

    We don't have to go to a place that allowes bottles shares if we aren't sharing bottles. We could just bring our tourney beer in for the winners, and drink house beers.

    I'm a regular at a couple places, and could ask them if they'd host us.

    I'd throw out the Red Cow (assuming they allow BYOB) otherwise I'm in Maple Grove so someplace in the general area would be preferable.

    Yard house in St Louis Park perhaps?

    Maybe I'll just let you all watch it at my place anyway. It would be easier for everyone to leave all of my winnings that way ;)

    Usually it is closest total score in the final game. I'm pulling for a UConn and Kentucky final!

    So is there any consensus on where to meet up to exchange beers and/or watch the championship game?

    It looks like it will pretty much come down to the championship game (unless WI and FL both lose, fingers crossed :cool:).

    A few options for the game
    - I have no plans for the game and would like to catch a drink or two for the first half at a bar. Open to suggestions as to where

    - If anyone wants to host that works as well

    A few options for Beer: As stated before, will probably come down to the championship game

    - After 1,2,3 are decided , Winners will pick accordingly ( 1,1,1 ,2,2,3,1,1) *if anyone has objections/wants changes to this let me know*
    - If a BA has offered more than 1 bottle they will not be split up, its a package deal.

    1) Each member is responsible for getting their bottles to either Me (I'll proxy) or The winner that selected their bottles

    I will probably not be able to make any kind of a meet-up because of some rental house issues (as in the tenants left it a shithole and I need to put all my time into it to get it ready to be re-rented).

    Whoever takes the Rye Wyne '11 with the central waters stuff BM me and we will figure out a way to get the beer to you.

    Pats Tap tonight for the game I hope to be there around 7:15-7:30 (I'll be wearing a blue Patagonia Fleece and glasses), Rum King is still on tap, They have TV's she didnt know how long it will last, but thought it would be on through the night. I need to set a meet up time with Doner to exchange, so if anyone needs me to get him beer its an option.

    For those that I need to meet up with. I live in Maple Grove, work in Eden Prairie and am in Minneapolis frequently. I won't be back to MN until next Monday though. Feel free to give it to EJJ otherwise if that is an option.

    Bumping this back up for the start of the new tourney.

    Hey All!
    Selection Sunday is coming up, which means the tournament will start exactly a week from tomorrow. I'll be setting up a group to do a pickem, 1 Entry per person, $20ish Worth of Limited release beer, payouts will be based upon how many join , but Id like to take care of 1,2, possibly 3 , as well as a consolation bottle for the Highest Round 1 score (In case of a tie, 2nd round scores will be added to the first rd score.) If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

    Cheers !

    This was fun even though I lost. In again because someone has to give beer to the winner.
