    Things to do in Minneapolis

    So, me and my buddy is coming to town November 7th..

    We are staying at the Best Western Normandy Inn, we are about ½ mile from the dome until monday morning, we go home to Denmark..

    Before that we have spend time in New York since Monday the 3rd..

    Obiously we got sunday locked up with the game and all.. but what do people do post game?..

    Friday, Saturday events?..

    We want to go to the MoA of course, and we where hoping to catch a Wolves game also maybe, if they are in town?.. if not then maybe the Wild, but their arena seems a bit far away..

    What else to do??

    I know the gang usually gets together at TGIFridays(across from the MOA) the night before the game. So you could easily plan that day to go to the MOA(I would plan a day) and then meet them for dinner.
    As afr as what to d I am not sure what shows are playing downtown but that is a option.

    Well if you want to walk to the Target Centre the I guess it will take you about 25 mins, there is also the Metro which is about 3 stops one way to the Target Center or about 30 mins in the other direction to the MoA.

    The Excel Centre is in St Paul but that is only a short taxi ride away which shouldn't be expensive. We've looked a ticket before and I think the schedule and tickets are out around July. so like the T-Wolves keep checking their site. Also if the Wolves are not around check the Target Center to see what shows or concerts may be on.

    http://www.nba.com/timberwolves/
    http://wild.nhl.com/
    http://www.targetcenter.com/

    Sure once word gets around then some of the gang will try and arrange a meet-up with you.... they're a good bunch
    ;D


    Hope this helps, if you have any traveller questions let me know and I'll try and help.

    Its a 4 or 5 block walk from the dome. it's a perfect location if you are able to get a room

    I would visit Duluth or the Brainerd lakes area. IMO the metro area is stale. Get out into the natural part of the state,breathe the fresh air and you will feel 10 years younger. If you had the time i would suggest the Boundary waters, one of the 7 wonders of the continental US.

    Experience "closing time" at Bullwinkle's http://www.bullwinkles.net/

    Party at Gluek's...http://www.glueks.com/, crazy place, great beer; I recommend the Walleye Fingers starter!

    Go to dinner at Manny's, a top shelf steakhouse...TRUST ME, I've been to the best in every major metro; Manny's is #2 to DelFrisco's in Fort Worth and beats 'em all in NY IMO http://www.mannyssteakhouse.com/
