City Report: Minneapolis

I’ll be honest, when I was told that I was going to be going to Minneapolis for an event, let’s just say I didn’t jump for joy. I tend to avoid the Midwest. I think it’s because I was forced to spend so much time in Ohio as a child. In the words of my beloved mother “it’s not all that bad. I can agree with her, but I don’t know if it’s all that good either. Anyway, I wasn’t refreshed. But considering the fact that I’m writing this post on my way from Minneapolis to Phoenix, I can say that I misunderestimated the fine city of Minneapolis. I stayed in a lovely hotel called the Ivy. If you find yourself in one of the Twin Cities, I definitely recommend it. It’s a part of Starwood’s swanky Luxury Collection. In my room there was this cute little book which displayed all of the Luxury Collection Hotels in the world. I’ve decided to at least hit half of them in next five years. So far I’ve got two down. I’m up for suggestions on which one I should go for next. (www.luxurycollection.com. I would say that I’ll go see all of them, but there are some where there are multpiple in one city, plus there are some in cities that I have no desire to go.

But, I digress. Minneapolis. I feel like it should be called The City of Skybridges. Seriously, the entire city is made of sky bridges. At first I thought it was just the convention center, but no, when you go downtown they’re all over the place. I’m guessing it’s because it get so freaking cold there. It was in the low 40s when I was there. So I went from 70 in DC to 40 in Minneapolis, to 90 in Phoenix.  Heh.

Greeness? I don’t know how much I can comment on that overall. I did, however, enjoy the fact that most of the food is logically grown because we were around so many different farms, etc. The food tasted fresh and delicious. So would I go back? Perhaps if I were being paid to…
