Visiting Minnesota? Everything you need to know here!



We have the Q&A Thread for people visiting, and it's served its purpose, but I'm working on a more definitive FAQ to go up on FRB, and I need some input.

Here's the outline I have so far, but please chip in recommendations, particularly on things like where to stay and eat, and what to do. Once we flesh things out a bit, I'll post each section in full separately for group scrutiny before adding it to the final post on FRB.

Intro - The Twin Cities: Yes! There are two of them!
- Minneapolis vs. St. Paul
- "Minnesota Nice" and the myth of the passive fan

About the X
- Arena Location
- Getting There
- Seats & Tickets

Where to Stay
(Any Thoughts? I'll mention the St. Paul if they're extravagantly wealthy, but I don't really know St. Paul's hotels other than that.)

Where to Eat
- Best Burger (hotly contested)
--- Jucy Lucy Controversy (I <3 Matt's)
- Best Pizza/Italian (Cosetta?)
- Best Poutine (gotta be Burger Jones)
- Best "fancy food" (suggestions?)
- Hockey bars (suggestions?)
- Apologies for our lack of Tim Hortons

What to Do
(This seems like an easier list to make for the offseason when there's more stuff going on... I mean I guess we can mention the Mall? Some of the theaters and museums, maybe. First Ave?)
