Hey, I'm traveling on business to Minneapolis this week. Is there anything to do there besides Mall of America type of stuff?
Record shop/ museum/ pizza joint recommendations? Do tell.

There's actually a lot of neat stuff in Minneapolis. It's a very difficult city to navigate though. Last time I was up there it was for the infamous mall of America. Hehe. I grew up about three hours from the city but was more partial to heading to Chicago than Minneapolis. Anyhow, here's a great resource that will point you to shopping, nightlife, art, restaurants, etc. Enjoy your trip!

Not tons to do here. But it's a very pleasant place. Except the weather is no good right now, even with the fishing opener this weekend!

Theres alot of fun, eclectic coffee shops in minneapolis. St. P is a older, prettier city i think. You gotta get a little outside the cities to see the real beauty. Travel north 2.5 hours near duluth for the north shore for some awesome scenery...

Where are (or maybe were) you gonna be staying?
