2020 Booya Schedule

Booya is a hearty stew cooked up in large cauldrons for fundraisers

Excerpts of  Jess Fleming’s article was Published on September 9, 2020


Social and Political Distancing could not keep the local tradition of holding a Booya from being offered this year, come rain, snow, sleet, or shine, or pandemic.

Booya might mean something to another part of the country but in the Upper Midwest it means a thick stew that is mixed and cooked up in a giant vat, or 55 gallon drum and served at non-profits and churches by the bowl until it’s gone.


Jess Fleming posts, “We do have a very notable newcomer this year in Saint Paul Brewing (688 E. Minnehaha Ave., St. Paul; 651-698-1945; stpaulbrewing.com) Map HD67B, which will be serving booya from 3 p.m. until close on Thursday nights, starting Sept. 17. If you haven’t been to the brewery, it was recently taken over by the owners of Can Can Wonderland and the previously primitive patio transformed into something that can best be described as an art park with lots of seating and beer, of course. They also serve really good wood fired pizzas.

If your organization is holding a Booya, please send your information to eat@pioneerpress.com, and Jess Fleming will add it to their list.

While Booyas are not political in nature, we’ll add an extra notation of what Minnesota House District each Booya is located in case your House District group wants to meet there.

Meet HD 66B GOP Candidates Murray & Copeland at Tin Cup’s Sept 11th 6-8 pm

Pause to Remember…

September 11th is a time to remember what happened 19 years ago in New York City, Washington DC, a field in Pennsylvania, and to where ever you were at on 9/11/01 when this  country was attacked for being the Beacon of Freedom in the World.  We came together to help one another out.  We praised the self-less actions of our First Responders, and we Republicans still do. It was a day to remember and also a day for action…

September 11th 2020 is also a day to remember the past, recent times (Late May 2020 to now), and a day of action.

A Day of Action

It’s Campaign Season and many voters have a week before they can start voting by absentee ballot on September 18th to vote in the General Election. So we’re having a Meet & Greet on Sept 11th, at Tin Cup’s from 6-8 pm.  Feel free to mask up and stop by.  Tin Cup’s has a great all-you-can-eat Fish Fry every Friday, and Gidget Bailey is serving the Deep Fried Tacos from last year’s Trash Wars Fundraisers.  So if you can’t make it to the event check out the websites and contact info of our endorsed candidates as well as Tin Cup’s menu below.

By the way, if you are wondering about the 911 of Greg’s website name, it is his birthday.  So it’s his birthday on September 11th, wish him a Happy Birthday.

He wanted the Headline for the post to be “John Marty’s 1st Retirement Party,” as John Marty has been in the Minnesota Legislature since January 1987.  It’s time to help John Marty Career Politician to find a new career.
