I much prefer old fashioned tailgating. However, I do like this new idea. Provided they make beer available, I think it will work!

The new park Minneapolis is talking about building should be just north of the armory and NOT next to the central library...east downtown needs development and a park will spur that and also serve the new stadium.

It would be awesome if they allowed for the sale of local beer. Obviously, we want to preserve a family friendly atmosphere near the dome, but this would immediately become vastly superior to any tailgating in a parking lot if there were a festival like atmosphere around down town for the game times.

I'd prefer railgating to sitting in a parking lot. What a dumb idea, really. Drink beer out of your truck, go to the game, and then drive back home? That's just asking for problems. I'd much prefer to ride the light rail down or bike into the downtown, sample some good food and beer from the area, and hang out. Then, watch the game and come back safely.

unicorn4711: Apparently you weren't around back in the Met Stadium days.....First you put on your snowmobile suit; then you threw your food, beer, and grill into the truck; and away you went! Those were the days.
