Header #8

Okay, teen gang, this is it: the three last days of Fringe 2008. As we told you yesterday, there's no need to panic, because there's still tons of time to see great shows, and this weekend is actually the easiest time to find 'em!

In addition to over 1600 audience reviews, there are media and blog mentions, word of mouth from people in line or at Fringe Central, plus plus plus!

On Sunday at 8:30 (8 at Bryant-Lake Bowl), the most top-selling shows get the final festival slot for Fringe Encore! Watch for the announcement on Sunday.

Now let's travel over to Sad News Town, where we reveal that even though the Fringe has the whole weekend ahead of it, Fringe Central has just (gasp!) two days left! That's right, Saturday night is the last party night at Bedlam. So raise a glass tonight and tomorrow for their great food, wonderful service and kick-butt view of Minneapolis from the comfy patio.

But then catch the Magical Rainbow Trolly to Happytown because the reason there's no Sunday night party at Bedlam is because of the Fringe Closing Night Party at First Avenue!

Your pals,
Bill and Matt

P.S. If you're driving, you might want to read this. Vikings game! Street closures!

NOTE: There won't be a daily tomorrow. This is a double edition.
OTHER NOTE: Yesterday, we had a list of shows that were the top-selling shows for Wednesday only, not for the festival heretofore. The Daily apologies for the error.

Drawing winners!

On Sunday, we're announcing the last three days' worth of coffee winners and—AND!!!—drawing the winners of our Grand and Rush Prizes. (And keep in mind that if you win a pound of coffee in the daily drawing, you're still eligible for the other prizes on Sunday. Yay!)

Stop by Fringe Central to put your name in the hat (or the, uh, box) to win coffee, the Rush Prize of an Equal Exchange gift basket or the Ultra Prize: Two '09 Ultra Passes and two season tickets to the Guthrie! (Drawing's on Sun., Aug. 10. Stop by Fringe Central to sign up and check out the rules.)
