If the weather is bad, we can go a block away indoors to check out School of Rock performing at Station 4. (Incidentally, they?re next week?s meetup event in Mears Park, and these kids rock) http://www.myspace.com/schoolofrockroadcrew
Since it?s a park, shoot me a text or call and we all can meet up:[masked]-2051. Mears Park is a beautiful, small park so you can?t miss the bandshell -- & nice to walk around the water fall and check out the beautiful flowers. Parking is pretty good in Saint Paul (though my perspective is from Chicago), but if you have troubles I can guide you. I don?t think they allow coolers, with yummy food from Barrio and beverage already for sale. They have some seating but you may wish to bring a blanket or chairs. There?s also Barrio, Bulldog, and other restaurants across the street from the park.
