Tips from foursquare
Check out the kennel show. It's awesome! Great for kids, just don't leave them in a stroller with all the crazy pooches around.
check out the minnesota roller girls
If you have never been to roller derby, what are you waiting for? Do it, it is a blast.
Before the roller derby bouts, stop by O'Gara's and ride the Shamrock Shuttle there and back!
Swing by their box office if you want to avoid Ticketmaster fees!
