Speedo Alert – Santa’s Coming to Town

From the Turkey Trot to the Polar Plunge, Midwesterners are not shy to take to the chilly outdoors for a good cause. The sentiments are enough to warm the heart and in the process melt a few icicles. New Prague’s Giesenbräu Bier Co Taproom has honors this month with their 2nd Annual Santa Speedo Dash Dec. 8! Yep – you’ve been warned – Santas in Speedos. The one-mile charity run starts and ends at the Giesenbräu Bier Taproom. All ticket proceeds go to the Minnesota Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. Check-in starts at noon, there’s a pre-run bier shot at 12:50pm and the Speedos hit the trail at 1pm. While Speedos are strongly encouraged (and it’s guaranteed you won’t be the only one wearing one), all manner of festive holiday attire is welcome. Tickets are $15 until Dec. 2, then they shoot up to $20. You can get them at the tap room up until the start of the run or at giesenbraubierco.com (click on events). Prost!
