Time: 6 PM – 7:30 PM

Location: Sisyphus Brewing, 712 Ontario Ave W

Brews, Data, and the Suburbs: 2018 Midterm Happy Hour

PLEASE NOTE: Our events are free, but tickets usually sell out! Please register via our Eventbrite page ASAP (link above) to make sure we save you a spot at the bar.

As we count down to the election, come drink and talk local elections with two of the region’s preeminent data journalists at a happy hour co-hosted by CityLab and MinnPost. CityLab data journalist David Montgomery and MinnPost data reporter Greta Kaul will talk about why the suburbs matter so much in Congress this year, and which local and state elections you should be watching.

You may have heard that suburban votes will be particularly significant in the 2018 midterms. David Montgomery’s recent story for CityLab, written in collaboration with Richard Florida, explains why districts like Minnesota’s 3rd could have such an outsized impact: https://www.citylab.com/equity/2018/10/midterm-election-data-suburban-voters/572137/?utm_source=eventbrite&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=citylab

With so many competitive races in Minnesota, MinnPost’s Greta Kaul's reporting explains which ones in particular are most likely to tip the balance of power in Congress and the state House: https://www.minnpost.com/state-government/2018/10/the-15-minnesota-house-races-and-one-senate-race-to-watch-in-2018/. She also wrote (and illustrated!) a guide to reading polls the smart way: https://www.minnpost.com/politics-policy/2018/10/how-to-be-a-smart-reader-of-political-polls-illustrated/.

The #HappyHourLab starts at 6 p.m. at Sisyphus Brewing (712 Ontario Avenue West) on Tuesday, October 30. Tickets are free, but advance registration is required as space is limited. Light snacks will be provided—and after 7:30 p.m., feel free to continue mixing in the main taproom.
