The Zombie Pub Crawl will be held in Minneapolis and St. Paul on October 13, 2012.
The Minnesota Zombie Pub Crawl is the longest running event of its kind in the United States. The first Zombie Pub Crawl was in 2005 with less than 150 zombies visiting bars in Northeast Minneapolis. Since then, the numbers have grown exponentially.
Here’s what the organizers say about this year’s event:
“First of all, we’re turning Midway Stadium in St. Paul into Zombie Island. We’re having a gravitron in the parking lot (also tea cups, a zipper, and a gd ferriswheel). We’re having a magician perform on the stage early in the night. We have Action Bronson and Riff Raff performing and hosting a food stand. We’re also working on having fireworks.
“We’re also going to be yelling our chant ‘what do we want brains when do we want them brains.’
We Have TONS Of Zombie Stuff In All Of Our Stores!
Costumes | Blood (In All Sizes!) | Makeup | Wigs | Etc.
(We’ll Show You How To Use Makeup To Look SPECTACULAR!)
“We even had an enormous custom inflatable zombie made.
“DMX will also be performing at Zombie Island.
“We’d say more about DMX, but unless you think DMX is a kind of bike racing, you already know how fun and exciting that will be.
“Then there’s all the fun and excitement happening on the West Bank. All the bars have fun stuff planned, including, but not limited to:
- The Red Sea (of Foam) Party at the Red Sea with Black Blondie
- A wedding reception at the Holiday Inn that’s open to zombies
- Sinden (the dj not the organist)
- Senor Todd’s Donkey Shows at The Nomad
- Big Freedia at Cabooze
- Food trucks EVERYWHERE
- Regular Palmers (spooky)
- Blood tank
- and stuff we forgot about already
“And if you like metal, check this out: we’ve got the ‘Blow Past the Grave and Zoom Into Hell: Zombie Abe Lincoln Heavy Metal Showcase with Fantastic Metal Bands’ at the Triple Rock with Mordwolf, Black Rainbow, Impaler, and even thrash metal pioneers Exodus. Yes, Exodus.
“We also have the Gin Blossoms playing at 6 p.m. at the Cabooze.
“Now we’d like to take a second to tell you about this year’s wristbands. This email has been all fun and excitement up until this point. Here’s where it gets a little crazy. The wristbands are custom made to move people through lines really quickly because we’ll be using hi-tech scanners at each location. There will also be kiosks around the crawl that will allow you to swipe your wristband to post to your social media.
“So there you have it.
“You’re going to want to get your tickets right away because they are going up in price on October 1st. SO BUY TICKETS NOW
“OH YEAH, check out this insane poster for this year (see above). Just looking at it makes us proud and if it doesn’t make you proud YOU DON’T BELONG AT THE ZOMBIE PUB CRAWL”
