12BoC Day


Prior year's shirts

We are all set for another great 12BoC!  Thank you to the thousands that have already registered for a 12BoC shirt or wristband.  We are looking forward to another great night.  The weather is looking like it will cooperate - nothing close to the 10 below we have battled through in the past.  Regardless, stay warm, grab a drink, some great food and don't forget to tip your servers. 

As always, the 12BoC officially kicks off at 6PM.  It's a shotgun start so pick the place you want to get started - you are sure to stumble into the masses as the night progresses.  We have provided a map and list of specials that can either be printed or is easily accessible on your phone - just go to 12boc.com/specials.

How can I still participate?  Get a WRISTBAND.

For those of you that did not get your hands on the iconic 12BoC shirt, you can still get in on this year's 12BoC.  Will Call Wristbands are still available and can be picked up tonight at the event.  Wristbands provide you with the same great food and drink specials plus entertainment and free cover at all participating bars all night.  Simply dress in your most festive attire along with your 12BoC wristband and enjoy the greatest night of the year.

Will call wristbands can be purchased online until 6PM tonight, December 2nd.  Will Call Wristbands must be picked up at Exchange & Alibi Lounge in Mpls from 4-8PM tonight, December 2nd.  Wristbands will not be available for pickup after 8PM.  Wristbands are $30 each.  You can order and pick up as many wristbands as you need for your group.

For those of you new to the 12BoC

This is the 13th year of our event celebrating the holiday season in the best way possible - great food, drinks, friends and fun - and all for a great cause!  As always the 12 Bars of Christmas benefits the kids at the St. Paul and Minneapolis Children's Hospitals.
