With heavy heart and much sadness, The Mine's last full month of operation will be January 2012. Our landlord has decided he wishes to utilize the space for his business, so the awesome fun times must come to an end! We're having one last epic hurrah Jan 28th, and we'd love for you to be a part of it.
