Morning: If you’re going to go visit the diamond at Target Field, you might as well stay at your very own diamond. The Hyatt Regency, a AAA Four Diamond Award-winner, is right in the heart of downtown Minneapolis. Wake up and grab some top-notch food from their Prairie Kitchen and Bar, as you’ll need some energy for the day. Grab some Wheaties. Be a champion.
Mid-Morning: We could tell you what to do before the game, but every sports fan is different. So take a look at this listand pass some time before the game. In the words of a famous philosopher, “Go do things.”
Lunch: For lunch before the game, there’s no better place than Rock Bottom Brewery. Not only do they have awesome pre-game food stuffs (burgers, wings, jalapeno pretzel sticks), but they’re their own brewery, too. They make six special beers that you can only get if you go to their restaurant, and the types of beer vary greatly.
Afternoon: Yes. The time has come, and you should be ecstatic. There’s nothing better than outdoor baseball, and the Minnesota Twins have one of the top ballparks in North America. Head on down to Target Field, home of the 2014 All-Star Game, and enjoy some baseball under the sun in that cool, 70 degree Minnesota weather.
Evening: After the game, walk a couple blocks and feast upon the pizza perfection that IS Pizza Luce. They’ve got out-of-this-world pizza options, and even cater to vegans and glutton-free dinners. Their bread and butter is in the specialty pizzas they summon from another dimension, with such offerings as The Bear (sausage, pepperoni, marinated chicken, beef and Canadian bacon), the Baked Potato Pizza (buttered red mashed potatoes, broccoli, diced tomatoes and applewood-smoked bacon) and a whole lot more.
