OK, well, now that we are a week from our arrival in the Twin Cites, I thought that I would bump this thread with our plans - we bought seats in the left field bleachers, section 131. This is the location folks wanted most, so that's where we are. We get in on Friday sometime, depending on when we actually leave. I'm betting it will be between 10 and 11, so I think that put us there somewhere in the 6-7 range. We're talking about Matt's for dinner, and then beers - somewhere, maybe Surly, or somewhere else.

 

Saturday will start with a tour of Indeed, and then maybe a trip to Dangerous Man. Then we'll go somewhere before the game, probably close to the ballpark - Fulton maybe? We leave on Sunday, sometime, and one of the guys wants to go to the Mall of America. I have no clue why, but, he wants to, so we need to fit that in sometime as well.

 

If you see some 4 random guys wandering around in Royals gear, say hi! We'll all have a beer, and chat baseball or whatever else!

 

Also, just FYI, there are several other breweries within walking distance of Dangerous Man and Indeed. 612 Brew is right by there and so is Sociable Cider Werks. I *think* that a new brewery, Bauhaus, has just opened near there too. 

 

Send the dude to MOA by himself. Or stop there on the way out of town on Sunday.

I agree that it's a terrible idea. But, I'm sure at some point I'll want to do something the other people won't want to do on one of these trips, so I don't want to go down the path of not letting them do so. Surely there's someplace that serves either beer, or fizzy yellow liquid that has alcohol in it. Maybe I'll just stay at one of those places in the mall and let him come get me when he's done.

 

Also, I could get my son a souvenir there. I don't know that my wife would appreciate me getting him a brewery t-shirt.

Back at you, KC?

Best BBQ in KC? Oklahoma Joes, Gates, Woodyard? What's your pick?

Gates sucks, don't go there, Oklahoma Joes is good but you wait and wait and wait forever.

Believe it or not Arthur Bryants is pretty damn good even if the neighborhood is a little sketchy. Cabbies don't like to pick up by their original location.

The original Bryant's is great. The neighborhood is not good, but if you go during the day, it's not bad. Any other Bryant's location has not been great, though.

KC, what is the name of the BBQ place that is close to the Boulevard Brewing Co?I was thinking it was on StateLine Rd and just into Missouri.

Thanks for all the info, guys. Our group is only 4, so it sounds like waiting for tickets may be the way to go. We do have one guy that is weird about heights, so we need to be in a lower level, which if Target field is anything like the K most of the time, that doesn't mean we can't buy a higher level ticket and move down. I would feel bad doing that though on the off chance we have to sit high, and he's not able to enjoy the game.

We definitely are going to try to check out a brewery, and go on a tour if possible. We are in only the second year of our quest to see a game in every ballpark, and we're going to see the Royals as much as possible (We're doing Chicago next year, and are hoping to do parks, like a Sox/KC Cubs/Cards trip would be great) as well as hit a local brewery and take a tour if possible. We went to St. Louis last year, and went to Schlafly, and well, if any of you are ever there, they are some of the coolest guys ever.

I was looking at Surly as a possiblity for the brewery to visit. I hear great things about their beer, and I can't get it here (Summit is available here, so I want to try some new things I can't get at home). Hopefully they're doing tours that Saturday (or better on Friday).

As far as staying and opening a real BBQ joint, I'd love to, but money and a lack of resturaunt experience would make it tough. I do a few competitions throughout the year, though, and think I make some mighty fine burnt ends.

Go to Fulton Brewery...right by the ballpark!!!

I WAS TOLD I WOULD NEVER MAKE IT BECAUSE I AM TOO SHORT. WELL, I'M STILL TOO SHORT. IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOUR HEIGHT IS. IT'S WHAT'S IN YOUR HEART.

If it's the one by Boulevard, it's on Southwest Boulevard, and is called Danny Edward's Boulevard BBQ, and it's great too.

Bauhaus is now open and right by 612 brew.  Bauhaus and 612 Brew are about a block away from each other, and about 3 or 4 blocks from Indeed.  Dangerous Man is a little further away from indeed (Roughly 11 blocks).  Dangerous Man is worth the trip.  If you want food around there, I suggest hitting The Anchor, getting fish and chips to go and head over to Dangerous Man (they let you bring food in).

 

I wouldn't take time to go to Surly.  It's out in the suburbs.  It's fairly close as suburbs go, but there are plenty of bars around town that serve their beer.  There is even a place in Target Field to buy Surly (right field, right by the main gate).

You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

Danny Edwards is the truth, as are Jack Stack's lamb ribs. 

 

Willi, great suggestion with BJ's  A night he'll never forget.

Jack Stack's beans, too. There's so much meat in them, I don't know if it's right to call them beans.
