Do you have an idea for a post that you’ve been sitting on for a while but haven’t brought yourself to actually write, or maybe a half-written post that you’re not sure how to finish? Have you wanted to write for streets.mn but aren’t quite sure what to write about?

Join streets.mn contributors for a post-a-palooza, which will basically be a co-working session/happy hour focused on getting those thoughts onto (virtual) paper. Drink beer or your preferred NA beverage, ask questions, proofread posts, help write a sentence or two, or just sit next to each other in silence and let the presence of other writers help motivate you. We’ll meet at Blackstack Brewing on Thursday, August 22 from 6 to 9 pm. Stay the whole time, or drop in whenever it’s convenient for you – just make sure your laptop is charged, as outlet availability is limited.

Blackstack has plenty of comfy seating and a variety of beers on tap, including several non-IPAs for those who are tired of the trend or were never into it in the first place. They also sell non-alcoholic beverages such as La Croix and a variety of sodas. If you’re hungry, Kabomelette Food Truck will be there, or you can order delivery. We hope to see you there!

    I like Blackstack a lot, but is there bike parking situation still suboptimal? First time I biked there, they had exactly none. Can’t remember if they’ve added a small amount of poor bike parking or none.

      I have the same concerns – I like going to Black Stack, but I haven’t been in a long time because of the bike rack issue. Last I was there they had zero bike parking (technically a weird “rack” with short, thin, metal loops, but it is not functional to lock to: https://bikepolisci.blogspot.com/2018/07/blackstack-brewing.html ).

      Hopefully someone can chime in, otherwise I’ll bike by and post an update.

        I believe they have bike parking in the parking garage (which is immensely annoying given the lack of signage, because no cyclist is going to check there for bike parking). I was very focused on being sure we’d have space to sprawl out (and good beer to drink) and neglected to think about bike parking even though I bike most places – I’m sorry about that! I am open to other transit- and bike-accessible places, so long as they have beer + nonalcoholic beverages, and are friendly to coworking.
