    Default Minneapolis

    Hey dames and lords,

    I'll be spending some time in the fine city of Minneapolis, however I've never been there, and don't know how to entertain myself. Any advice?

    Thanks

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.

    You can entertain yourself by annoying the locals with a fake Scandinavian-English accent and endless questions about Fargo and Prince.

    I think the Mall of America is nearby. It has a roller coaster and other rides on the inside. And people go there to jog because it's a mile around on each of the floors.

    Mall of America is in Bloomington which is a few minutes south of Minneapolis.
    ....They don't have much else. I'd go with Louis' suggestion. Also, they don't play duck, duck, goose there. They call it duck, duck, grey duck. Make sure ask people to play duck duck goose with you.

    The only thing I really know about the Twin Cities is that they have a huge Laotian population, so the obvious answer would be to find some Laotian restaurants and have a rocking good time.

    Reinvent the British and you get a global finance center, edible food and better service. Reinvent the French and you may just get more Germans.

    Thanks all guys. The weather is good for now, and I have found a couple of watering holes to my liking. Will visit Mall of America this weekend in all probability even in spite of my irrational fear of walled cattle shopping areas. Any specific places? Restaurants, bars, illegal racing, fight clubs?

    Danke all
