Saint Paul Saints Invitation

We STILL miss you!!

Welcome back, Blugolds! Consider this form is your one-way ticket to begin your return to the rivers of Eau Claire. 

With all of the exciting things happening in Eau Claire lately, we don't just want you to hear about it, we want to you to have to opportunity to experience it yourself! The downtown area might look a bit different from your days as a Blugold, which is why we want to offer you and a guest a chance to come experience what the hubbub is all about!

For $25 a person (including food and drinks) you can enjoy the latest changes to the city where you first experienced the freedom of college life.

Our burgeoning local brewery scene is as exciting as it is tasty. Lazy Monk Brewery and The Brewing Projekt are spots that have the locals abuzz that you won't want to miss! Other spots downtown you'll experience as a part of this package are classics such as The Firehouse, The Livery, and new spots including The Dive (a part of The Lismore Hotel by Hilton Doubletree), and The Oxbow Hotel & The Lakely

For an additional $25 per person, you can spend the night downtown at one of these newly opened hotels.

The Oxbow is Eau Claire's first Boutique Hotel, and is a project formulated by various local entrepreneurs (Justin Vernon, Nick Meyer, Zach Halmstad, Ben Richgruber) who saw a need for unique stay places in the heart of our city. This much-anticipated spot is the perfect place to stay and experience the revitalization of downtown up close. The Lismore by Hilton Doubletree is the other newly-opened hotel with a coffee shop (Eau Claire Downtown Coffee), restaurant (The Informalist) and bar (The Dive) that have added an urban feel to our small town. Both of these spots have already made large impacts on Eau Claire as a whole and a tangible excitement to the latest projects, such as the Haymarket Landing, and future projects, such as the Confluence Arts Center.

Festivities kick off at 11:30am at Carson Park for the Blugolds vs. La Crosse football game.

Tickets are offered to invitees but there will be no "formal" event at the game. At 3:30pm invitees will meet at Haymarket Landing for a tour as well as greetings from Chancellor Schmidt. Following tours and a short presentation, a bus will take the group downtown to explore!
