Welcome to the MN Chat Thread. I've been noticing an absolutely [i]stunning[/i] amount of people from MN on this forum (or I'm going insane that works too). So I decided that our little state of dreams needs a chat thread. From eating at remarkably shitty bars in Minneapolis, to being remarkably friendly to people, this is your state. Let's cover the big three cities [b]Minneapolis[/b] [img]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/b/ba/Minneapolis-logo.svg[/img] Minnesota's bread to St. Paul's butter! Containing all of our fun stuff. TCF Bank Stadium where our terrible Gopher college team plays, the Target Center, where our terrible Timberwolves play, and the Metrodome where the terrible Vikings play. It's all good and nice in Minneapolis. We are also 22.4% obese, fun fact! [b]St. Paul[/b] [img]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/4/42/Stpaul-logo.svg[/img] Where our terrible hockey team plays at the Xcel energy center. Also where our State Capital is, unlike our sports teams, these guys are usually OK! I must say the Mickey's bar is a great place to eat if you ever get into North St. Paul. If you ever get a chance to see the Capitol, you should It is stunningly beautiful. [b]Duluth[/b] [img]http://origin-www.duluthnewstribune.com/media/full/jpg/2009/02/07/montumd0208c1.jpg[/img] Where the suprisingly unbad University of Minnesota Duluth bulldogs play. Cute little city in my eyes. Not much to talk about, Grandma's bar and grill is orgasmic. BLT pizzas...mmm... You may notice this OP is quite barren, but that is because the discussion lies in the users of this forum. Ask us Minnesotans questions! Before I leave this up to you guys, here are some pictures of this beautiful state. [img]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/c2/Bald_Eagle-Burnsville-2006-01-15.jpg[/img] Bald Eagles!

New Brighton'er calling in. I love Minnesota, gets a but too cold for me during the winter but thats what happens when you spend 3 years in Florida.
Why do people always posts loads of images in every chat thread about some kind of place in the U.S.? It's just something I've noticed. [editline]6th May 2012[/editline] On another note I'm from Maple Syrup Land.

Don't forget Stillwater and our shitty lift bridge that we had to cram up the Sierra Club/Congress' ass in order to get a new one.
Out of all the highways in Minnesota, only two are well known. 35W (bridge collapse) and I494 [I]The parking lot[/I] [img]http://minnesota.publicradio.org/collections/special/columns/updraft/assets_c/2010/12/1%201%201%201%201%201%201%20mn-thumb-500x340.jpg[/img] And lets not forget about our only-in Minnesota seasons: Road Construction, and Winter.

That was a crazy ass day.
I used to live in Warroad. Now I'm moving to Fargo, so I'll cross over into Moorhead on occasion.
Eden Prairie here. Best damn mid-to-small sized city in the whole country. Based on economics. That's kinda all we've got going for us, other than the high school's pretty good.

[QUOTE=kool-mike;35858042]Ive been to Rochester and Minneapolis. thinking about going there again sometime.[/QUOTE] Downtown Rochester is pretty cool - Mostly because of the Mayo Clinic but, the outskirts of the city are... rough.
I'm from Fridley. I absolutely love Minneapolis. Seriously, just LOOK at it.
[QUOTE=Estolle93;35858201]I'm from Fridley. I absolutely love Minneapolis. Seriously, just LOOK at it.[/QUOTE] Where in Fridley? I used to go to Totino-Grace, and my best buddy lives by the AMF bowling ally.
I live right behind Hayes Elementary, if you know where that is. It's just a couple blocks from University and Mississippi.
I live in Apple Valley right now, might move to rosemount when i have money since i work over there
[QUOTE=Estolle93;35858417]I live right behind Hayes Elementary, if you know where that is. It's just a couple blocks from University and Mississippi.[/QUOTE] Haha, yeah I know where that is. Me and a few friends took some of those folding tables from the church near by and made a road block across all of mississippi back in high school. My buddy lives off of baker just down the road.
[QUOTE=AugustBurnsRed;35858419]I live in Apple Valley right now, might move to rosemount when i have money since i work over there[/QUOTE] Ohh shit, where at? [sp]Please dont say Celts[/sp]
Burger King :v:
Oh, hahaha. I might have to come harass you when I get out of school.
I'm from Farmington, MN (basically attached to Lakeville and Apple Valley, south of the Twin Cities), and I'm going to school at U of MN Duluth.
[QUOTE=areolop;35858486]Oh, hahaha. I might have to come harass you when I get out of school.[/QUOTE] Probably not the best idea, haha. The managers are decent but they bitch when you just sit and talk to customers
