Break the Bubble Minneapolis
Friday, June 28, 2013 from 8:00 PM to 11:00 PM (CDT)
New in town and having trouble meeting people?
Lived here your whole life and want to branch out from your high school friends?
Did you grow up here, move away and just move back?
Come break the bubble with us.
What is Break the Bubble, you ask?
It's an event centered around introducing you to new, friendly people. All you have to do is show up and we'll do the rest.
What makes Break The Bubble different?
We've designed this event specifically to get you out and meet people! For one, it's at a brewery. People tend to open up a little after a few beers. For two, there will be a theme. Something to get people talking. We've already got the theme picked out for this event, but in the future we'll crowdsource the theme in advance to incorporate all of your great ideas (i.e. dress up like a grade school photo, bring something embarrassing from your childhood, wear a wig, etc...)!
The theme this month is Awkward Name Tag Questions. Think of this as the ultimate icebreaker! Every name tag will have a different question on it, so you don't even have to say a word, you just have to answer the question on everyone else’s name tag! After a beer or two, you'll be walking around like you were just crowned prom queen (or king) … or something. It’s going to be awesome – this is an event not to be missed!
Example questions include:
- How do you feel about cilantro?
- Invisibility or mind-reading? Which would you choose and why?
- When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
What are the other questions you ask? Well, that’s where we need your help because we're crowdsourcing this part. Once you've RSVPed, we'll send out an email asking for your questions, so start writing them down now! We need 100 really good ones!
But I'm an introverted nerdy tech guy who is most comfortable as a wall flower and has problems striking up interesting conversations with strangers. Is this event still for me?
Do I need to bring anything?
Nope! Just your awesome self. We're VERY excited about our first Break the Bubble, and will do everything we can to make sure it's a fantastic event.
Help us help you be awesome!
We realize it's only two weeks away, so we also need your help in spreading the word. Invite your friends, tweet about us, blog about us, post on facebook, or something else. Capacity is limited, so we ask that you only RSVP if you're really going to attend. Just because it's a free event doesn't mean you can RSVP and not show up. Don't be a Facebook "Maybe” (creeper). Other people want your spot!
One last question, where can I go for more information?
Nowhere. For now, this eventbrite page is it. We don't have a website, facebook page, or twitter up yet. This puppy is brand spanking new. We don't even have a logo or t-shirts!
On the bright side, that means there's a big opportunity to help grow this into a hugely successful and super fun series of events. Don't hesitate to get involved.
