Beer and wine sales brought in more than $900,000 in their first season at the University of Minnesota's TCF Bank Stadium. University officials say sales at the Gophers' seven home football games averaged $129,610.
University of Minnesota officials say the first game with alcohol sales at TCF Bank Stadium went smoothly. Schools spokesman Chuck Tombarge says extra security staff effectively isolated the area where alcohol was sold Saturday.
Fans will be able to drink beer and wine at Minnesota's first home football game of the year at TCF Bank Stadium this weekend. Saturday's Gophers game against New Hampshire will mark the first time alcohol will be sold at an athletic event on the University of Minnesota campus.
Governor Mark Dayton has signed a bill that's likely to be a big hit with Gopher football fans who will now be able to drink a beer at TCF Bank Stadium. Dayton signed the bill Friday, a few days after it passed the state House and Senate.
A measure that could satisfy some fans' thirst for beer at the University of Minnesota's TCF Bank Stadium is halfway to Gov. Mark Dayton. The Senate voted 55-3 for a liquor law change Friday. The House is likely to vote soon on the liquor bill.
The Minnesota Senate has approved a bill that would let the University of Minnesota sell beer to the general public at University of Minnesota football games. The Senate approved the change Wednesday as part of a larger liquor policy bill that passed.
