T-Swift, “Anti-Hero”

Is Taylor Swift bigger than the Super Bowl? Back in May, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey announced that the city is expecting “Super Bowl-sized crowds” when Swifties descend upon U.S. Bank Stadium this weekend. And those are the lucky ones; thanks to Ticketmaster’s janky system and soaring ticket prices, many fans who wanted to go are S.O.L. 

But that doesn’t mean you can’t have a T-Swift week. Here’s all the Swifty stuff we could find going on around town, taking you from today through the weekend.
