I sent this email to some of my co-workers yesterday but you know, this applies to all of you as well. If you just happen to be in the Saint Paul area, what better way then to celebrate the glory of the Twin Cities by stopping off at the Chalet? And, hey, if you’re really lucky, maybe you will be able to join us when we are once again trapped in the bar while a police investigation takes place outside.

Yeah. I said again. Last night, right after the bar closed, 7 or 8 squad cars surrounded the Chalet and the police pulled some men out of a truck/SUV/something or other that had pulled into the parking lot. Bryan had gone outside to see what was going on, saw a cop with his gun drawn and the cop yelled “Get back inside.” Which he did, because, hello, cop with gun. While we then waited for approximately 45 minutes before we could leave. But hey, at least Liz was there this time.

And, really, don’t you like a little bit of excitement with your weekends?

Subject: Karaoke – September 4, 2005

You’ve heard me talk about it enough. Now it’s your chance to experience the joy that is karaoke at the Chalet on Sunday nights. We don’t work on Monday so you wouldn’t have to worry about being too tired to come into work. We usually get up to the Chalet at about 9-9:30. You are not required to sing. You are required to applaud massively whenever I sing, which you will want to do anyway because I am just so wonderful (yes, yes, I’m being sarcastic). If you do decide to sing, you are not allowed to sing Picture because that is the worst song in the entire world.

Please, please, please come? It will be lots and lots of fun. Bring friends! Bring family! Bring random strangers from the street! If I forgot anyone, please feel free to forward this email on to others.

Warning: The Chalet has been classified as a bar and so therefore, the area will contain tobacco smoke (thank God).

Here is a link to the Chalet on mapquest, where you can get driving instructions.
