After many lessons from many different folks (I need so badly), I can't say enough for Bill and Shannon as instructors.

Cost: Lesson and Music, Free!! (please by something, and tip!)
Hennepin Ave North of Lake St is very pedestrian/bike friendly. There's many people; it's very safe.
You can drive up Hennepin and usually park on the street, or drive a little off into the neighborhood.
Also parking south of 31st on Humbolt, Holmes, Girard or Freeemont, but lots of people have the same idea so it's more sparse.
Ramp parking but it's $$. Arrive a little early, park and walk or 'Hide & Ride', bus fare is much cheaper than the ramp.
21 and 6. The transit station is just up Hennepin.
Nice Ride Bike Dock at Lake Street & Lyndale Station
Bike parking between Famous Dave's and their parking ramp
Even though the event is free, please purchase something and tip the waitress. Thanks!
See you there!
