I'll probably never got to Minneapolis, but if I do, I'm am definately going to this soon to be famous watering hole!!!

When one of the Twin Cities' most notorious bars, Stand Up Frank's, closed earlier this year, I wouldn't have believed in a million years it would be reopened and reimagined as something called Donny Dirk's Zombie Den. Real zombies could dig themselves out of the ground and eat my brains before that would happen, because that would be crazy.

But crazy has happened.
The zombie stuff (i.e. the kitsch) is hilarious, and more nuanced than you'd expect from a bar named Donny Dirk's Zombie Den. In the corner, a small chainsaw sits inside a glass case that reads "In case of zombie attack, break glass." The bartenders all dress like Simon Pegg in "Shaun of the Dead" -- white button-up, red tie and blood stains.

We're having a Zombie Crawl here in San Jose on the 26th....sounds like fun....

Zombie Crawl in Downtown San Jose

San Jose CA will become the latest in a long list of cities to be overrun by the walking dead. Join us August 26th for the first ever Zombie-O-Rama in downtown San Jose, which will coincide with the showing of Shaun of the Dead at Starlight Cinemas, an outdoor movie series sponsored by the San Jose Downtown Association. The SLG Art Boutiki will have a special Zombie Art show going on to mark the event and we will also be offering our galleries performance area as a staging spot for people who do not want to apply their zombie attire on close to the scene. The Zombie rally point will be Gore Park (of course) and a route will be mapped out to take you to places offering happy hour specials or free gifts, then back to the movie site for Sean of the Dead which will be preceded with live music. More details will follow, for now mark the date. This is one downtown San Jose event you will want to say you were at.
