I cannot tell you how refreshing it was just the other night, to sit with Saloon manager, Tim Belfanz along with Designer and Producer, Mark Durkop of The Event Dynamic.  The purpose of the meeting was to flesh out the details of The Big Top!  The event is happening on Saturday November 12, 2011 at The Saloon located at 830 Hennepin Avenue in downtown Minneapolis.

The Big Top

Beginning at 10pm the entire bar/restaurant complex will be transformed into an indoor circuit CIRCUS dance party!

All eyes will be on you in the center of the ring!

Being promoted as “One Hell of a Circus Dance Party” the details are as follows:

10pm/21+  $5 cover

  • Adult Snowcones
  • “Strong Man” Performance
  • Fortune Teller
  • Expanded Dance Floor
  • Acrobats
  • Bearded Ladies
  • Sexy Clowns
  • Trapeze Artists
  • Snake Charmers
  • Sword Swallowers
  • The Tatooed Man
  • Circus Animals
The event is a creative new opportunity to stretch the bounds of what can be staged in the complex that has been a community staple for decades.  In addition to suprises in every corner there will be a contest for the sexiest clown!  I can see it now… nearly naked boys with big red noses!  The first prize for the sexiest clown is $150.00!
Wondering how big of a deal this is?  They will begin setting up at 9:30 am!!!  That is twelve hours of staging to bring you an authentic circus experience.
I am planning on heading down and am sure I will not be disappointed.  I hope to see you under The Big Top!
