It was a health care happy hour at Pat's Tap in Minneapolis, as they teamed up with MNsure.

It was part of the health care exchange's last-minute push to get the so-called "young invincibles" to sign up for insurance.

The state exchange says more than 136,700 Minnesotans have signed up for coverage. MNsure's original goal was 135,000.

The deadline to enroll is next Monday, March 31.

The Obama administration announced late Tuesday they are granting more time for people to apply for health care if they started the process but were unable to complete it before the March 31 deadline.
