I've flown thru MSP before but have never spent any time in the city or area. A hotel deal recently came out that I couldn't not take advantage of. Basically 4 free nights given the amount of hotel points required is neglible. If everything goes as planned, I'll be attending the weekend before the MLB All-Star game in July. I haven't done much research yet, but what should I do? I like history, culture and museums. Even shows if something is on or coming to town. I will do some outlet shopping plus take in a couple of restaurants I can't get at home - Cheesecake Factory!!! Btw, where does one buy frozen Cheescake Factory cheesecakes? I've seen them before for sale, aside from their restaurants, and I wouldn't mind bringing one or two frozen ones home. So far, I've only been able to eat them in LV and Waikiki. While looking up restaurants, I came across Cane's Chicken Fingers. I've never tried them...are they that good? I should have stopped in at the one by the South Premium Outlets in LV but I just finished a breakfast buffet at Cosmo before going shopping. Couldn't eat anymore. Aside from Cheesecake Factory and Cane's, I'm interested in some good local stuff. Any Top Chef contestant restaurants in the area? Other celeb chef or hot spots to try? Oh, and what about culture in the city! Got 3 full days to fill up.
