Our annual event, Wake Up With The Wake, took place Friday, October 26th. Despite the cold temperatures and rain, staff and interns, artists and writers alike, handed out free bagels, coffee, and magazines to around 175 students and community members on the University of Minnesota campus. We’d like to take a moment and express gratitude to all who showed up to celebrate the release of our first two issues and helped make this event a success Thank you to Weisman Art Museum and Outdoor Space for allowing us to table outside your space. Thank you to First Avenue and 7th Street Entry for the concert ticket giveaways. Thank you to RadioK for the tunes. Thank you to Bruegger’s Bagels for the catering. Thank you to each and every one of you for supporting The Wake, sharing the event, and showing up!
