  • Re: Minnesota Gopher 2012 offseason thread

    So you're saying my chants probably aren't the best way to go about this?
    "It ain't over, baby! And that took only six seconds!"

    USCHO gives me another reason to not do work while I am at work.

    Everything is Hill's fault.....

      When you see the girl of your dreams, initiate a conversation anywhere at anytime on virtually any topic, it doesn't really matter with this proven method (weather, your nastiest bad habit, why hot dogs cause cancer, etc.). THEN...show them the photos! Abracadabra! The endorphins start circulating throughout the connective tissues and before you can say "spank my monkey"...bang...they'll be begging you for your phone number to offer you private massage treatments. Works every friggin' time. Good luck Wes and let me know if you have any questions.

                    Help!

                    In Hudson today and plan on going into Minneapolis tonight. Need some quick advice.

                    Back in the early 90's used to go down to City Center and wander. Looking online, it seems that it may not be a great place to go anymore?

                    Is it still there? is it open late or does everything shut down early.

                    Just want an urban and safe environment to kill some time tonight.

                    Probably eat at the Loon Cafe as that was my wife and I's first date back in 92.

                    Should we go to Uptown instead? Is Uptown still Uptown? Is it still cool?

                    Haven't been to Minneapolis since 93, so lots has probably changed.

                    Need to know by 3:30 or so. Thanks!


                    Oh yeah. With wife and two pre-teens so not looking for night life. Looking for lively (safe) urban area to wander.

                      I like how you come to USCHO for this

                      Uptown is still around. Very hipster, but lots of shops/restaurants/etc and probably as "safe" as you will find. City Center isn't really City Center anymore, and while I never feel unsafe around there, I'm not sure if you would think it's "safe"

                      Otherwise go across the river into Northeast. Right when you cross the river there are a few shops, family-friendly pubs, and if the weather is nice you can head down to St. Anthony Main (to the right along the river right as you cross the bridge out of Downtown) and walk/grab a drink/eat along the river (weather looks iffy right now though).

                          I said "safe" more than once didn't I?

                          Never was too concerned back in the day, but got kids now and like I said, things have probably changed a bit since the early 90's.

                          No offense meant towards your fine city.

                          I do go to Milwaukee after all, so how bad could anything up here be? Although I know where NOT to go in Milwaukee.

                          Oh yeah, and USCHO is a great travel guide. Who else to guide a hockey person than other hockey people. Somehow, I didn't think the Blackhawks or Brewers boards would be much help.

                          Thanks for the advice.

                              Quick story which may help to explain my pathology on this.

                              On Vacation with family when I was about 13 or so. Went to New Orleans. Went on walking tour of the French Quarter (FUN! Thanks dad! ).

                              Picture midwestern family, dad with camera around his neck dark socks and boat shoes. Super-obvious that we weren't local.

                              Dad sees a "short cut" on the map. "We can cut 10 blocks off if we go down these streets!" He was/is one of those dads.

                              Guess why the route went around that area. The only thing I can think of as to why we weren't mugged or worse is that the locals must have thought it was a setup. "No way man, gotta be a setup! TOO easy!"

                              Prostitutes, people on porches lighting up, what looked like a gang. We still give him crap about it. Another of your "short cuts" dad?

                              Now I try and check things out before I wander a big city that I'm unfamiliar with.

                                Its probably late now. But I'd go to St Anthony Main with what you've said.

                                Cool foot paths, restaurants, bridges, views, etc.
