LET'S WATCH THE HOLIDAZZLE PARADE ON NICOLLET MALL-MPLS

The "powers that be" have decided to downsize the parade to Fridays & Saturdays only this year - sorry about that!  We will grab a hot drink @ Caribou Coffee & watch the parade! Always a great time with the brightly lighted floats & whimsical characters & of course, Santa & his sleigh!! Definitely a "Don't Miss" event!!

I will be taking the Hiawatha Line Light Rail Train from the Bloomington Central Station @ 4:30pm, if you want to meet me there - I simply refuse to park downtown - I value my sanity!! Or you can just meet me @ the Caribou Coffee by the Gaviidae Commons - between 5th & 6th Streets @ 555 Nicollet Mall. While @ Caribou we can grab a hot drink & find a place to watch the parade. The parade starts @ 6:30pm! After the parade, we can grab something to eat somewhere or do a Happy Hour or whatever - I'm open to suggestions!! I'm not too familiar with downtown venues!!

























I will be wearing my long Blue Denim Coat & Black Boots - I'm under 5ft tall so I should be easy enough to spot!! Please be sure to dress warmly as it may be 60 below by then!! Keep your fingers, toes, eyes, etc crossed it's nice weather for us!! Mother Nature can be very cruel!!

    I called Whiskey Park & they are close to where we will be & have HH specials - so that's a possible option! They have drink & app specials & a DJ with no cover until 10pm! Sound ok? I thought so! Your thoughts please! Any other ideas? Thanks a bunch Julie!!

      Dueling Pianos sounds great Julie - I've gone to that @ Bogarts! I'm going to do some research on my break today - that's a great idea!!

      The Chart House charges $8 cover after 7pm & I don't plan to be there long enough for that to pay off! Great idea though - I love Dueling Pianos & will try to set that up soon @ Bogarts in our neck of the woods!!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
