If you are driving, there is the guest parking lot on the north side of the building at 5th St and 5th Ave. If you choose to park here, you must sign in with the security guard at the main entrance on the north side of the building to avoid being towed.
There is also ample street parking around the building.
The Target Field Station & Platform 1 is located right across the street from the Ford Center building in which Agosto is located. Both the Blue and Green trains service this station.
You need to enter the building on the north side (opposite of the rail tracks). Follow the signs to the elevators and take it to the 4th floor. The doors on the south side of the building will be locked by the time our meetup starts.
Also, a friendly reminder that the doors do not open until 6:45p.
Below is a view of the main entrance on the north side of the building. Target Field is in the background on the right.
