In-Between Socializing


Our old reliable Happy Chef is still there on 169N!
Come for dinner as early as 4pm, before the Hooligans event at 6-10pm.

Closer to Hooligans is Perkins, Red Lobster, or Baker's Square, on Madison Ave, before Hwy 22. Red Lobster opens daily at 11am, Perkins 24/7 and Baker's Square from 7am


Remember breakfast at the Happy Chef after the all-nighter party at MSC Student Union? We can continue that tradition Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning! Happy Chef is 24/7.

Events inside MHS begin at 9am. We can gather outside, on the lawn, all morning and noon hour! There's a Burger King across the street, as well as Cub Foods. (No alcohol, no littering!)

Our old favorite Sibley Park is just 5 minutes away, as well! Maybe we'll decide to drive on down!

Pub 500, Front & Cherry, has been hosting the Reunion Committee meetings, and space has been reserved for lunch after the Pepfest for any classmates interested in gathering.


Breakfast before Rev. Steve Kosberg's golf outing in Upper North Mankato? In addition to Happy Chef, there's the Perkins where we all remember it, a little closer to town, on 169N.

Lunch, Coffee, dessert? We've got all morning and afternoon, if you don't have friends and family remaining in Mankato. Maybe switch it up, and visit more than one?


We can have breakfast together, before hitting the road for home... until next time!

If you're staying by MSU, there are specialty coffee and food shops in the Mall where the Albatross was.

If you're staying up by River Hills Mall, there is the Mall's Food Court, plus Perkins on Madison Ave. (For those of you who have been gone that long, Madison Ave. used to be known as Rhine St.!)

If you join our Facebook Group, we will be discussing these social opportunities in better detail!

Wear Your Scarlet Vest!

Order your Vest on the Registration Form, and wear to all Reunion events, from Thursday night until you leave Sunday. See and be seen!

• Light weight Red Fleece Vest w/black trim
• MHS logo on the crest

Fore! Saturday Morning Golf

Join us for the 50th Class Reunion Golf Outing on Saturday morning, October 13 at North Links Golf Course in North Mankato. Any and all levels of play are encouraged. (Mulligans allowed!!!!)

The first Tee time will be 9:45 AM and we will play nine holes. The cost is $18 walking or $27 riding. If you are interested and plan to play, please contact me as soon as you can, and I will set up the teams and tee times.

This is as good a time as any to laugh at - no I mean, encourage your fellow classmates! Come and join us.

Please let me know by October 5th. Thank you.
