Friday: Wild Xtra's #WildSuppportGroup Playoff Party

The Wild have cleared their first obstacle toward the Stanley Cup, and it's long past time to celebrate. So we’re buying a round for the house. (Make sure you’re in the house.)

In the dead of January, things looked pretty bleak for the Wild, just as they have for all of the Minnesota sports teams lately. Some say the turnaround was due to the acquisition of Devan Dubnyk, but the real heroes were the #WildSupportGroup, a group of Wild Xtra members and writers that commiserated together on Twitter, taking comfort in virtual lemon bars, each other and booze.
It occurs to us that this might be a winning recipe, so we’re calling all Wild Xtra readers to Masons Barre and Resturant (6th and Hennepin) to watch Game 1 of the Wild-Blackhawks series. Writers from Wild Xtra and other sites will be there to talk Wild playoffs, Twins minor leagues, Vikings draft or United’s stadium. And you’ll get a free beer on us to thank you for all your support of our dismal teams.

We’ll also be sampling the #WildSupportGroup’s new “Lucky Lemon Bars” which we feel are sure to guarantee a Wild victory. Three Olives Vodka will anchor this sweet lemony concoction that is guaranteed to raise spirits or drown sorrows, again for free.

Never has a support group been quite so enabling. I mean that in a good way.

So you have plans Friday night, and so do your friends if you’re kind/smart enough to invite them. Set aside some time, head over after dinner, stroll over after the Twins game. No matter how you do it, SHOW UP. It’s rare you get to be part of someone buying the house a round. It’s even rarer you get to see a Minnesota team in the playoffs. Either way, it’s time you get to feel like a winner.

I'm going to be there and I hope it is like this when the Wild score: https://vine.co/v/eWg6OT7eFbY

I'll plan to be there. And I'll be wearing three belts because Mason.

Man, I'm jealous.  I love a good lemon bar.

I'm wondering if I can get Mason's to pass around free lemon bar shots when the Wild score. It's worth a shot. 

I might actually enjoy this type of lemon bar!

As I will not be present, I've ordered that my complimentary round be auctioned off. If this is not done, I blame Remington and we're going to have words...stern words.

Well, ... that's an 85 mile trip for me.

 

Is that lemon bar worth it?

Only 85 miles? Consider yourself lucky!

I'm thinking about doing something like an in person AMA about my time working with the team/being official media...I may be biased, but I think that's worth like 2 or 3 lemon bars (that should be made out of chocolate)

Em.. why does this never happen when I'm there?! :(

So, how's the night going thus far? I'm guessing some of you guys are already drunk.

 

I'm so sad that I'm missing all of this. Plus, I was so getting used to Minnesotans buying me drinks from last week.
