The boys want me to bring them down for "bike week" - not much chance of that happening. All I can say is - wish I were there!

Well here we have the world's largest soccer tournament. About 20,000 kids and their respective parents. Talk about ding city in the parking lot.

Lots of midsized conventions come to Minneapolis because the bigger cities are too expensive. This ties up a lot of downtown parking ramps who charge something like $8/day for evfent parking. On a regular day parking downtown is between $12-15 a day, so I can't really complain.
