ohioguy12 saidGoing to Minneapolis next week with a friend, staying downtown, and we're looking for things to do. Figure to go to a Twins game, a casino, and Valleyfair amusement park, any other suggestions?
Also any recommendations for bars/clubs there? I hear the Saloon is the most popular, how is that?
The Saloon is on Hennepin Ave, and some other gay bars, like the Brass Rail. But the Saloon has a dance floor, where taking off your shirt is kinda normal. And if the "Tank" in the back is open, you may find a little rougher trade there, with X-rated gay videos playing. There's also a nice patio further out back.
On Washington Street is the Mpls Eagle, which include the Bolt and Bolt Underground. Depending on the day, and the time you go there, you might want to be wearing leather. I've seen some interesting bondage and hot waxing shows in the Underground.
If you like drag, the Townhouse on University Ave in St. Paul is good. Check their web site for shows. Just a small neighborhood bar, but drag-central.
Too bad you're too early for Pride, which they claim is the 3rd largest in the US after SF & NYC. But they have Pride events all month, so check them out.http://www.tcpride.com/
