Recess Games VII: Capture the Flag

July 13
6:30-8:45 p.m.
Sports - Participatory
Who says you have to be a kid to enjoy recess games? Summertime is the best season for silliness in the park, and the Grown-Up Club brings it in spades when they host an event. The crew often plays at the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, but since that's a mess of construction right now, this Wednesday they'll be heading over to Washburn Fair Oaks Park instead. Wear your sporty best, and meet in on the steps of the Mia at 6:30 p.m. for some dignified mingling, stretching, and an outlining of the rules. From there, all bets are off, as teams will be formed and epic rivalries will emerge. Afterward, friendships will be strengthened and renewed, as everyone is invited to relax and enjoy brews, margaritas, and anything else on the menu at nearby Mexican restaurant Pancho Villa.
