Reader Service Announcement: The Zombies Are Coming

Zombie Pub Crawl

Per a reader request, here’s a RSA on where you might want to avoid this weekend, hopefully we can save you a traffic or table wait headache.

We’ve had some of the most fun times of our lives at the annual Zombie Pub Crawl, which returns to Downtown MPLS this weekend. Fun fact: The ZPC is the biggest music festival in MPLS + STPL, which folks don’t realize because the incredible amount of fake blood and vomit involved. This year’s lineup includes “Black Beatles” Rae Sremmurd, Zomboy, Smash Mouth, Ja Rule, Andrew W.K., a cover stage, a ska stage, and all sorts of bloody antics. Fun or not, the gigantic event basically shuts down the area around First Avenue and Hennepin Avenue, and it eats up all the cabs, so plan your Saturday afternoon and night accordingly.
