    I've been to the dome twice this season for games. First, if you are going right to the game from the airport, take a taxi to the mall of america. The light rail is on the macy's side of MOA. Go that direction, get a 6 hour ticket($3.50 each) and get on the light rail there. Getting on at the airport will not be fun, the train will be packed, and even worse if you are trying to take bags with you. You will basically be going past the tailgating spot once you get to the dome. Get off the train, turn right, go straight. As for alcohol, you'll have to get it sat. night as there are no liquor stores open on sundays in this state. Convenience stores sell 3.2 beer, you won't like it. If you bring it on the plane, bring it in a backpack or something, someone will harrass you about it otherwise. The regular tailgaters are extremely nice about offering a first timer something to drink, however you are at the mercy of the offerer's beer(is that a word?). Dress warm, that includes feet especially. You'll likely be standing on ice at tailgating, gloves and a hat can be stuffed in the arms of your jacket when you go inside.

    As for the ticket, i would have loved to take it, however i have to do the honorable thing and go to a family event. Someone will take you up on it, no doubt.

    Only other advice: Wear your purple, scream and cheer until you're hoarse, and enjoy yourself.
    ;D
    Definately take the train to the game, but do not cab to mall of america.
    The train stops at both airport terminals, and one indoors.
    Do however be as loud as possible.
    I have bought playoff tickets and very much want to use them

    If you are giving tickets away...... I am game.
    I would have to drive up from Iowa.

    Anyway, I hope you enjoy your trip to MPLS.
    I hope you will get in the night before so you can look around a bit.
    Hey man, you gave some great info AND it seems you like funkadelic.
    The ticket is yours.
    Keep an eye out for a tall couple (guy in Vikings fleece [Mike] and the girl in an Eagles jacket [Kristy]).
    I can PM you my cell.


    We are staying at the Doubletree, which looks to be in walking distance...although a bit far with how cold out it is.


    I'll see if the transit line is any better for us.
    This double tree is only 5 blocks from the tailgate.
    Just walk down 4th street in between Chicago and Park. and that is the tailgate.

    The Nicolet Mall stop on the light rail is 2 blocks from the hotel.

    BTW, I would be happy to compensate you for the ticket, besides bringing some local beer.


    Thanks and I did drop you a PM.
