Dave and I usually stay at the Marriott City Center, it is close to the prefunc at Keiran's Irish Pub, and the night before shenanigans at Gluek's Tavern

My wife and I are likely in for this one. Why did I think Allianz was in Minneapolis and not St. Paul? Anyone who's done this before (at least to the UM stadium), easy enough to stay in Minneapolis and head out for the game?

I do not recommend trying to go light rail from downtown Mpls to Allianz. You will go right past two major Loons Supporters stations and be deluged. The better option is to stay in downtown St. Paul and take the light rail from there. This is also a reason why we should be looking at pre func on the St. Paul side of things. I live here, btw.

Agree - I was looking at St Paul rather than Minneapolis.

Should be there with drum. Not me in particular playing it; but we should have it there.

Also, can confirm it’s St. Paul, not MPLS, would be a logistical nightmare to get there from the OG pre func

Just a head's up: Due to the new stadium location Prefunk and the night before meetup with Heartland Horde may not (read: most likely will not) be the same bars/locations as previous years.

Please don't plan your hotel stays based on what ECS has done in the past. As your Travel Monkey for this away trip, I don't want you to be upset if you book a hotel that isn't stumbling distance from the prefunk bar.

That being said, we'll have details up soon so you can start booking hotels. Promise.

Looking at the Residence Inn in St Paul. It’s new and has decent redemption rates for Marriott points. It’s Uber-able most anywhere I need from there

Tickets acquired! Looking forward to joining in, making a Fargo joke or two and yelling my face off.

Any updates on prefunc? I've booked airfare from NYC, BnB near light rail, and rental car. Gonna bring my MSP-local cousin along, and my brother might fly in from Burien - seeking deets to fills in my weekend schedule. Thanks!

I'm looking at tickets, and I have a question for people who are familiar with the airport/city. If I land at 1:25, would I have time to get my ticket and get to the game?

Thanks!

I can't speak for ticket logistics pickup, but that is PLENTY of time, MSP is a quick ride to town/stadium location.

Stay tuned! There should be a monkey invasion by the end of next week (possibly this weekend if the cards align)! I do know that the prefunk will be in or very near to St. Paul AND on the light rail. All of that information will be in the top placeholder post once it's confirmed.
