An official release party will be held to celebrate the University of Minnesota's representation in the latest issue of Playboy.

Six current or former U women are featured in the October issue's "Girls of the Big Ten" pictorial.

The event is being held Thursday night at Bootlegger's nightclub in the Minneapolis Warehouse District. The Minnesota women will be there to sign copies of the magazine, which came out earlier this month, and pose for pictures.

There is $5 cover charge, and attendance is limited to those 21 and older.
