Medina Entertainment Center

500 Minnesota 55, Medina, MN 55340

(763) 478-6661

The Medina Entertainment center is a wonderful place to host a party or banquet. Their rooms are tastfully decorated for the season and the staff is great and the food is very tasty. I have entertained in every one of their banquet rooms many times over the years. The most recent was for 500 people at the Teamsterís Holiday Party held in the Medina Grand Ballroom. This was my 5th time working for this group over the years. I also appeared at the Halloween party with Chopper for the 3rd time this past October. This party had well over 500 people in attendance. The Medina can handle large groups as well as smaller ones. The Medina Entertainment Center also has many medium sized rooms that accommodate various size groups. Many groups that have had my show will then send their guests off to go bowling after at the Medina Bowling alley just down the hall. This a great combination for your next party or banquet.

Some groups plan an evening around a special event. One group had my after dinner show in one of the rooms for their guests. Then after my comedy show, many of them went upstairs for a live music act that was performing in the ballroom. That time I think it was the Rockiní Hollywoods. This is a very cost effective way to have your group enjoy live entertainment without the expense "renting" a band to come to your spot. You might be able to hire a band for $1,000-$3,000 or for $10 a ticket you could send your group of 35 people up to see a great show like the Rockiní Hollywoods. This is a very economical idea for a smaller holiday party. This is one big benefit of the Medina Entertainment Center. I have also entertained the Staff at the Medina 3 times and am glad they enjoy my comedy and bring me back again and again. They have recommended me to many of their groups and I am thankful that the see the quality of my work.

The Pool and Yacht Club is a great spot for a company party or special event. It is located on the shores of the lovely Mississippi River in Lilydale, Minnesota. Just five minutes from downtown Saint Paul and ten minutes from downtown Minneapolis.

This is a great place to enjoy the riverside beauty that changes with the seasons.

The staff is wonderful and the quality of food is excellent.
