Two days left to buy MinnPost Asks tickets

Why are stadium debates like Minnesota winters? Because they're both "unpredictable, painful, never-ending, tough to navigate and filled with the shoveling of lots of stuff," says MinnPost's Jay Weiner.

Jay should know. He has covered sports facilities issues in the Twin Cities since 1993, and is the author of "Stadium Games: Fifty Years of Big League Greed and Bush League Boondoggles" (University of Minnesota Press, 2000).

Sports fans, policy wonks and people with strong opinions about the issue are invited to join Jay next Monday, May 16, as he asks Ted Mondale, Gov. Mark Dayton's stadium point person, "Is there a future for the Vikings in Minnesota?"

The program will take place at Hell’s Kitchen, 80 S. 9th Street, Minneapolis, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. In addition to the interview and audience Q&A, the event includes a hearty appetizer buffet, dessert and coffee, and time for mingling. A cash bar will be open throughout the program.

Ticket purchase deadline is Wednesday May 11, 2011. Tickets -- $15 for MinnPost donors, $15 for young professionals, and $25 for others -- can be purchased here
