Join us August 8 in the Twin Cities for Asado and Futbol!

Dear Members and Friends of Minnesota-Uruguay Partners,

We are delighted to invite you to join what's become a highlight of summer for our group, the annual asado (bbq) before a Minnesota United soccer match.

Members, friends and volunteers from near and far are gathering on Saturday, August 8 (in early celebration of Uruguay's Independence Day) to celebrate the strong and productive ties of friendship that Minnesota and Uruguay share. See a flyer attached. 

The fire starts at 3:30 pm, with grilled beef, wines from Uruguay, and non-alcoholic beverages will be provided.  Attendees are encouraged to bring a dish to share.  Please respond on the sign-up genius link below to help us plan for a tasty variety of offerings.  A goodwill offering is appreciated to help us cover the costs of the beef and refreshments. 

At 7:00 pm, the Minnesota United will be playing FC Edmonton ($12 tickets available). You can reserve your tickets by emailing or purchasing tickets on the website with the promo code AGANAR2015

See the Evite ( for more details and to RSVP with your potluck item.
