12 Bars of Christmas
12.6.2013 // 6PM-Close // Downtown Minneapolis
HAPPY 12BOC DAY TO ALL!
The 12BoC kicks off tonight at 6PM and runs until bar close. In order to participate, you need either a shirt or a wristband. Don't have one of those yet? No problem. Shirts are sold out but wristbands will be sold first come first serve tonight at Jackson's Hole from 3PM-6PM prior to the kickoff to the 12BoC. THAT WILL BE YOUR LAST CHANCE TO GET IN ON THIS YEAR’S 12BOC! Wristbands work the same as the shirt and are $20 each. You can also pick up additional wristbands for friends as well.
Once you have your shirt or wristband, here is what you need to know. We have 17 bars participating in the event - all of them waiving cover charges for the night ($27 savings if you were to visit every bar). Each bar will be running $3 Bud Light & Michelob Golden Light bottles, $4 drink/shot specials as well as food specials. Interested in entertainment? We gotcha covered! DJ Squints & DJ Don't Josh Me will both be spinning at Whisky Park where you can also ride the mechanical bull. The PourHouse will be rolling out alternating sets between DJ Dudley D (Prince's DJ) and The White Keys Band. And if the cold weather for the evening is dragging you down, you really need to make your way over to Rouge at the Lounge as they will be giving away a free trip for two to the winner's choice of New York, DC, Miami, New Orleans, San Antonio, San Francisco, Myrtle Beach or Orlando. Get 2 tickets for the drawing by showing up at the Rouge between 6-8PM or 1 ticket by showing up between 8-10PM. The drawing will be held at 12:30 and you must be present to win. For a full list of drink, food and entertainment specials click here. Since the specials are good at all bars, all night, you have the freedom to visit the bars in whatever order you choose!

If you are an Instagram user, make sure you tag your party pix with #12BoC to show up on our 12BoC feed. We will have two photographers that will be taking candid party shots at the various bars throughout the night. Feel free to show off your festive spirit in the pictures! All of the pictures will be posted to Facebook within a week. And if you like their pictures, you can find contact information for both photographers at 12BoC.com.
As always, this event will benefit Childrens Hospitals & Clinics of Minnesota. Details of the 12BoC donation will be posted on Facebook in the coming weeks. We thank you again for participating in the 10th Annual 12 Bars of Christmas.
