Laborial Day 2018

Aug. 4
2-6 p.m.
Barhopping, Food and Drink

Laborial Day might not be a “real” holiday, but it sure feels like it when you’re several beers in. The celebration has its own traditions, including the pre-drinking search for the colorful Laborial Stone, which can be found using clues posted on Trivia Mafia’s Twitter account, @triviamafia. The person who finds the rock will be crowned royalty for the day, and will be bestowed with a pint at every stop on the crawl. Another way to score free drinks is through trivia, as there will be five questions at each bar stop. Should you win a round, your team gets a free drink at the next location. Laborial Day also has encouraged garb, as revelers wear a combo of black and white (it’s a “no white after Labor Day” thing). Foods consumed on this special day are also black and white, and include Oreos (aka Laboreos) and ice cream sandwiches. The bar crawl will begin at Sociable Cider Werks (1500 Fillmore St. NE, Minneapolis), where you can buy into the fun for a mere $5. Able Seedhouse & Brewery, 612Brew, and Bauhaus Brewlabs are also on the schedule for the day. 21+.
