Why is 50 Cent appearing at 2 Twin Cities Hy-Vee stores this week?

He's in the Twin Cities Thursday and Friday nights.

There's a nationwide coin crisis but a couple of Twin Cities Hy-Vee stores shouldn't have any issues with 50 Cent visiting this week. 

Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson will be at Hy-Vee in Brooklyn Park on Thursday and then at the Eagan store on Friday for bottle-signing events. 

The rapper and actor extraordinaire will be autographing bottles of Branson Cognac and Le Chemin du Roi Champagne, which are part of a Sire Spirits collection that he launched, and Hy-Vee is adding the brand to its liquor selection. 

To get an autograph and picture with 50 Cent, you have to buy one of the bottles. It's unclear what the bottles will sell for at Hy-Vee, but online searches show the Branson Cognac runs in the $50-$60 range, while the Le Chemin du Roi Champagne retails at $199.

He will be at the Brooklyn Park Hy-Vee, located at 9409 Zane Avenue North, from 6-7:30 p.m. Thursday.

Then on Friday he'll meet fans and sign autographs at the Eagan Hy-Vee at 1500 Central Park Commons Drive from 6-7:30 p.m. 

Facebook event pages show more than 300 people planning to go to the Eagan Hy-Vee and more than 475 others "interested in going." Nearly 200 people say they're going to Brooklyn Park for the event, with 400 others possibly attending.
