Please know that COVID-19 continues to be a factor in how we’re able to utilize spaces.  As of this writing, the State of Minnesota limits occupancy in entertainment venues of Capri size to 50%. In addition, another surge of COVID is progressing through our state. Our plans will evolve as the state allows.

Conversely, nearly 2 million people in Minnesota have been vaccinated, and the efficacy of the vaccine is proving to be excellent. We are proceeding with appropriate caution and optimism.

It’s been a long time coming.  We look forward to hearing from you, and working with you soon!
