Words can’t begin to describe how proud I am of all my supporters out there reading. What began as a simple email to Reverend Bauer at the Basilica of Saint Mary has turned into a movement. People are starting to think about this issue, and that is what is important. I know I think about it everyday, and it’s so nice to know I am not alone. With that, I want to thank you all for following me on this journey and spreading the love.
For those of you not following, I will give you a quick update. As of right now the “Say NO to the Basilica Block Party” page on facebook is at over 4,500 people – WOW that is incredible. I did an interview with MinnPost and was also mentioned on A.V. Club.
Again, here’s a BIG thank you to everyone following and for all of the support!
Now back to business, since we are spreading the love I wanted to also send a BIG thank you to Rock Bottom Brewery, and here’s why.
As everyone knows Twin Cities Pride is fast approaching (June 25 & 26). I decided to research who was corporately sponsoring this important event and couldn’t believe what I discovered. The ONLY twin cities restaurant/bar to sponsor Pride is Rock Bottom. While almost every single “Irish” pub in town is sponsoring the Catholic Churches summer festival, the only bar in town to sponsor the Pride Festival is Rock Bottom.
(By the way, check out the numbers, the Basilica Block Party brings in 25,000 people, while the Minnesota Pride festival brings in over 400,000 people. You would think more downtown bars would want to get in on that action?)
Please join me in thanking them and make sure to visit and thank them personally.
Here is all their contact information – please call, write or email them and spread the love. Better yet spend money there and when you do make sure they know why they are getting your business.
