I'm just curious if any of you have any advice on the best outfield places to sit? Best sight lines, better to sit in the upper decks? Also if anyone has some cool places to hit up before or after the game that would be much appreciated.

They've made some alterations to the right field seats this year so who knows.

I think I have narrowed it down to
Section 225 Row 1 Seats 17 and 18
Section 131 Row 2 Seats 11 and 12
If those are your choices, I'd go with 131 for sure. 225 isn't in the outfield, though, so I'm wondering a little if you meant 235 (since the OP said you were going for outfield seats). If that were the case, my personal preference would be 235 over 131 (as I like to be up a little and it's a little more centered).

I like the idea of sitting in the bleachers and right next to the bullpen in 131, but from the 'Seat View' thing on the Twins site, Section 225 seems to be a much better view.
Edit: Ya, sorry for the confusion. I was looking only at outfield, but 225 just caught my eye even though it is down the 3rd base line.

No shortage of fun places to go before and after the game, Kieran's is right across the street, great outdoor patio if the weather is nice and good beer selection, Huberts right at the field, The Alley (formerly Smalley's) usually has game day specials,do some lawn bowling on the roof of Brit's Pub and have a few pints.....that's all within walking distance and just a start.

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

Not the best vantage point for viewing the game, but I think sitting so close to the field and in the seat right next to the bullpen would be a cool experience, so I think I'm going to go for Section 131. Thanks guys.
I think you'll like it. The bullpen view could be cool, and the view of the action from Row 2 there will be exciting on any balls hit out that way. I've been lucky almost every time I've sat in similar seats that there's been a play with an outfielder crashing into the wall very near me, and it's always pretty fun when that happens. Hopefully you'll be catch a Willinghomer, too.

The rest of the outfield, in my experience, are pretty crummy seats.

Wait a minute.....I see what you did there! Where's Glunn when you need him?
