You must arrive completely sober and will be breathalyzed at the door.
If you cannot attend the lottery due to work, hospitalization, or restriction from Simpson properties, call 612.871.1138 by lottery start time to have your name entered as a call-in. Currently, call-ins are eligible for a spot on our wait list or for a nightly bed at Simpson and St. Stephen's.
