Picture This: A beautiful September night, welcome drinks, tasty appetizers, festive candlelit dinner tables spanning the 16th Ave Bridge of Lions, a great local meal accompanied by local beverages, lots of music and a silent auction of great items from Czech Village and New Bohemia.
All that's missing is YOU and your friends!
The Dinner on the Bridge Pregame is sponsored by Kickstand, located in New Bohemia at 203 16th Ave SE. This pregame event will be complete with a Happy Hour, Photo Booth, and MORE!

Guests are invited to check in at the welcome table on the New Bohemia side of 16th Ave Bridge of Lions where you will receive your program and drink tickets.
