Brave New Workshop is nearby the Blue and Green train line and also several bus lines, since it is in downtown Minneapolis. They will give you a coupon for $1 off your first drink if you show your public transit ticket or pass.

Very topical and upbeat. Loved the energy and not too many F'ing heimers.
Good cast and good job!
