Both a statement by our own LGBTQ community and a direct show of support for the victims of the Orlando attack, the Emergency Minneapolis Queer Bar Crawl organized by Flip Phone will be an important weekend event. And, yes, a fun one, too—get your dancing shoes and other accouterments going, and help contribute to the look and positive vibe of the scene. The route includes The 19 Bar, The Saloon, Gay 90’s with Christina Jackson, EagleBoltBar, and then a shuttle to Lush. (Check the Facebook event for times and details.) All participants should make a donation to the Equality Florida Pulse Fund and all proceeds from each drink also go to the organization. Friday, 5 PM. Free.Taylor Carik
