    HELP, First Vikings Game....

    .....if you don't count the preseason game i went to back in 86'
    But anyway, takin the wife to cities on saturday night and then the game vs. the panthers on sunday.
    I was on the metro website and looks like the Light Rail Transit (LRT) runs from the Mall of America right into downtown and the metrodome.
    Is this a nice way of transport if you don't feel like driving in?
    pros/cons?
    Basically, how long is the ride.


    Also, give me some ideas on how to spend the saturday afternoon/evening in the area.
    were staying at the super 8 over by the mall of america.
    my wife got us a deal on a room for $8, it was a special offer on 8/8/08 that super 8 was doing.
    We haven't been to Bubba Gumps in a long time (we've been to the one on navy pier in chicago) and thought about going there for dinner.
    i figured we'd hit the mall that afternoon, so i guess we could just spend all day in there and eat as well.
    But if there is something you guys recommend i'm up for options.
    thanks for reading all.

    There may be a sat night pregame dinner, look for a thread.

    Best bet for you is to take the light rail in.
    20 minute ride at longest, and super nice way to go in my book.

    SKOL!

    Maybe you can help us fill out the new Vikings Visitor Guide section with your reviews of what you hit while in town!

    Whenever we stay at the MOA, I take the rail in.
    It is cheap, no traffic, and takes 20-30 minutes max.
    I highly recommend it.

    Will you be at the PP.O tailgating?

    Hustle on over here:
    http://www.purplepride.org/forums/index.php?topic=47864.0 and sign up for the tailgate party.

    Webby and Neum arrived at 6am on Sunday to grab the primo spots in Purple Tailgate Lot #1 which is located immediately NE of the plaza on the East side of the Dome, across the LRT tracks.

    When you get off the LRT at the Dome, look Northish at the parking lot right across the street.
    Find the huge billboard.
    Go there.
    PPO will be right there.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
