Bringing my son to his first game Fri.Where's the best place to park nowdays? All my favorite spots near Wash. Ave are gone. This may sound stupid but I'm looking for something half ways affordable Thanks!

Light Rail from somewhere. I rode it with my 6 yr old last year from near the mall and it was great and cheap. He had a ball riding it too.

Just don't be in too much of a hurry to leave unless you enjoy being up-close-and-personal with people suffering from a bad case of flatulence after downing several beers and dome dogs. sick

Light-rail is a great option. You can always park somewhere near the Dome, but you pay more the closer you want to be and you wait longer to leave because of the traffic. Park in a distant lot (far away from Washington Avenue) and you'll be in better shape.

I usually try to find an after-game diversion if I drove instead of taking the light rail. I'd rather go to a restaurant afterwards or walk around the river instead of head straight to my car and be frustrated at stop-and-go traffic for an hour or so.

Don't forget that there are lots of buses that go right near the metrodome. These are also great options.

If the weather is nice I will park on the street for free by St. Anthony Main. Then take the peaceful walk across the Stone Arch Bridge, looking for fish on the way over of course. Afterwards, traffic isn't too bad getting back on either 35W or 94N.

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
