â€œI donâ€™t know why weâ€™re only serving coffee at our inauguration get-together,â€ says Zabransky. He bristles at the suggestion that Minnesotans are prudes. â€œWhat? No, weâ€™ve had alcohol at plenty of our affairs. Maybe the Rayburn House Office Building has some restrictions or something, or maybe weâ€™re trying to save some money. Other than that, thereâ€™s no reason not to have booze. Itâ€™s not a Minnesota thing to just drink coffee.â€ For coffee, the society expects between 50 and 100 people to show up. Zabransky notes thatâ€™s a good turnout, due both to the societyâ€™s membership base, which Zabransky described as â€œpretty bigâ€ (between â€œ500 and 750 Minnesotansâ€) and because the event is free. He dismissed concerns that the Minnesota eventâ€™s early start time of 9 a.m. means that it could fizzle out before inauguration festivities are in full swing. Turns out the society will be serving coffee until 4 p.m. â€œSo we will be partying all day,â€ Zabransky says.
