Is this the thread we're using to plan any of the social aspects of the final 5? Or is this supposed to be for actual hockey talk? I wanted to figure out what posters are doing and where they'll be before, and after games.

I think this makes only the 2nd one I've missed, going back to Target Center.

Gopher tailgate, game, tailgate, game, then probably Reid's. The usual agenda. Might try and get breakfast in St Paul before the tailgate.

I'm planning on getting down to the tailgate about about noon on Thursday, then doing the same as you. After the game, if Tech loses, I'll probably leave right away and get home, since I'll plan on working Friday morning. If I'm in a celebratory mood, and I have to be back downtown for early game again, then I'll probably stay later and take all day off on Friday. Friday night, after the game, I'd like to check out Burger Moe's for a while to see Rocket Club. Saturday, I'm planning on tailgating for a while, then heading off to brent's to go to Johnny Holm Saturday night. Probably passing on the championship game, unless Tech is there.

This is always a good stop to make during the Final Five as well.

Apparently the Tech post game party is at some place called John's Bar, which is supposedly close to the X. Has anyone even heard of this place?

Never heard of a Johns bar by the X, there is one in South St Paul.

Maybe they meant the party is in the "John" by the X.

Maybe they meant the party is in the "John" by the X.The place is actually called 317 on Rice Park...located at 317 Washington Street, St. Paul, MN 55102. John's Bar is the bar located inside 317 on Rice Park.

Anyway, I doubt I'll go. If Tech wins, it'll be 100% Tom Reid's for me, if they lose, my couch will be perfectly fine.

It's kinda fancy compared to what we normally use for events: Stub & Herbs, Grandma's Sports Garden, etc.

Tailgate, hockey, and Reid's. Repeat on Friday. As for Saturday, tailgate early to avoid the St. Patrick's Day Madness, hockey (how can you fools miss hockey!?) and then probably home to relax with out guests.

There is a John's Corner Bar over in South St. Paul, but that's not anywhere near the X. Don't know of nay other place called John's in St. Paul.

Good to know you'll be leaving me in the tailgate lot after the game on Saturday. I'll just hold onto robgreen and go to my Safe Place.

This. And it's a short cab ride from the Midget Mansion, too.

I wonder how many tickets they'll end up selling? I'd laugh if some people showed up on Sat, only to be denied entry into the bar. :D

And that happens to people pretty often, when they don't realize that there is a ticketed show going on, since they almost always sell out the shows that they pre-sell tickets to.
