MinnRoast — our annual night of jokes, parodies and laughs — is set for Friday, April 26, at the Historic State Theatre.

We invite you to become a MinnRoast Patron of this cherished annual MinnPost tradition, which not only gets you tickets to the show, but also gives you access to the exclusive pre-show reception at Rock Bottom Brewery. At the party, you’ll rub elbows with some of the biggest names in Minnesota politics and media while enjoying great food and drinks at one of the hottest social gatherings of the season.

Angie Craig, Rep. Dean Phillips, Rep. Betty McCollum, Rep. Ilhan Omar, Rep. Tom Emmer, Rep. Collin Peterson, Rep. Pete Stauber, House Minority Leader Kurt Daudt, actress Sally Wingert, actor Bradley Greenwald, the Twin Cities Gay Men’s Chorus, and more.

Most important, as a MinnRoast Patron, you provide crucial tax-deductible support for MinnPost’s nonprofit newsroom and our in-depth coverage of the stories that matter to Minnesota.

We’ll be announcing more featured guests and details about the show in the coming weeks, but we’d love to count on your support today.
