    If you're into music..Jam Bands....see if Minnesota's own up and coming The Big Wu is playing anywhere. They had sold out concerts on August 24 and 25. This band has the most loyal fans in the world. In March, 2005 you can catch them on the Carson Daly show.

  • Somewhere under the stars: Stargazing at it's Finest

    When you get away from the city lights (probably 100+ miles) the stars are so bright it seems like you can reach up and touch them. The Milky Way looks like a streak across the sky.
    I like to try to identify the constellations. You might want to take a field guide to the stars. We were fortunate enough to experience a full moon.

    Fortune Bay Casino: Fortune Bay Casino

    by geanster Updated Jun 20, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I just thought I'd add this casino for those gambling enthusiasts who might be interested. The Fortune Bay casino is located on an Indian Reservation near Virginia, Minnesota and I had the opportunity to spend an evening there in 1998.

    Fortune Bay Resort Casino is located in the heart of Minnesota's Superior National Forest near beautiful Lake Vermilion. Fortune Bay is proudly owned and operated by the Bois Forte Band of Chippewa. They are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and claim that their location is central to all entry points into the BWCA.


    Since the 17th century, the Chippewa Indians have called this region of northern Minnesota their home. Today, the Bois Forte Band of Lake Superior Chippewa has approximately 2,600 members. Nearly 500 of those members live on two of three Bois Forte Reserv ation sectors, the Vermilion and Nett Lake. A third sector, Deer Creek, was formed near Effie in 1854 when the United States created a 132,000 acre trust of land known today as the Bois Forte Reservation.

    Minnesota is one of the states that has the highest bars per capita! The only thing is, most close by 1am!!
    There are a couple of bars though that are open till 3am but they stop serving Alcohol after 1am.

    First Avenue:
    Open till 3am. Sometimes they have live bands and sometimes they have DJs spinning Dance, Gothic/Industrial, Hip-hop/rap/funk, House/techno music. Don't want to stand out? Dress in Black! :)
    Crowed's age: 20s mostly.

    Formerly owned by the formely known as Prince who is known as a symbol! Plays a lot of hiphop music! Dress up!
    Crowd age: 20s-30s ///

    Gay 90s:
    Gay 90s: As you can tell from the name it is a very 'happy' club :)

    It has the best music and it is the biggest club in MN as long as you're not homphobic. It also has some interesting shows :)
    Not for the conservative faint hearted! ///

    Ground Zero:
    The extrem kinda club! One word to describe it: FRRREAKY!! Anything goes there! Men in skirts, S&M .. but it might be fun to watch! Just don't take granny with you! :) ///

    South Beach:
    I am really hesitant to add this club to my list. It used to be a great club with great music but lately it has become a spot for violence. Shootings, stabbings and fights are an often occurance! But have no fear they have installed a metal detector at the door and you can borrow a bullet proof jacket I believe at the door! :)
    Just be very careful if you and when you hear the word DUCK, they are not talking about that little bird :)

    Nico I hate dancing! Could I just get a BEER?!
    Sure mate! Try Brit's Pub,O Gara's and The Loon Cafe.

    Did I hear someone shout 70s RETRO??! Try the Fine Line with their live bands!

    Nico I am an overwesight cigar smoking, suit wearing,mature yuppie! No worries!!! Try Club Ashe in downtown minneapolis. Older professional crowd. Its also akown cigar bar.For cigarette lovers, the club sold out to the cigars only policy, so make sure to stop off at your local smoke-shop before venturing in . By the way it is also located next to the fine line!

    The Lounge:It's posh, it's plush and it's packed full of royal flush! This trendy local is set in the heart of the popular warehouse district in downtown minneapolis.If you're looking for a place to see and be seen this is it. Glamed-out Minneopolitans line up to sip Martinis and Cosmopolitans. Dress up and bring your sunglasses. For some reason byond me many of the people inside wear them!! :)

    Now this is one thing I can talk about!

    I have seen some great shows since I have been here! The Fineline is a kick butt place to see a show! So far I have seen Collective Soul, Soul Asylum….Next is my favorite band in the whole world, The Jayhawks.

    I will also be seeing Big Head Todd and the Monsters for the third time!
    The local music scene her is rockin! I could have moved here to be closer to my favorite band...The Jayhawks!

    Dress Code: ??? Are you kidding??? Clothes. That is the dress code.

    1. 7th avenue 2. Mall of America 3. The Mermaid 4. Gabby's
    7th ave is different. They feature headliners and new up and coming bands. If you don't like out of the ordinary or diffrent this is not the place for you. But if you enjoy a new club experience this is a great place to start.

    Dress Code: All of the above places is casual dress. 7th avenue is the only one where you may want to dress a little out of the ordinary, have fun with it. However you can just go there in jeans/t-shirt.

    I don't know. I'm not allowed out after dark.

    (Note this photo is from about 15 years ago when I had about 16 cents to my name and could only dream about travel.)
