I'll be around in the afternoon on Saturday at the show, and then at Market BBQ later on. Seven or eight-ish at Market BBQ?

Things to do near venue

There are a group of 4 of us coming down from Canada to the show Saturday, and we will be staying at the Hilton thats right by the show.
Were all 25-26, and wondering whats in the general area to do that evening after the show. Dinner somewhere, then we will be looking to get a gut full of beers
Any ideas?
Thanks

There is an ADV meet and greet at 7 at Market BBQ in Minneapolis. It's located within walking distance of the convention center. Here is a map.

Good food, brews and fellow riders. Not to shabby. Weather could get questionable so avoiding the driving around is good.

Have fun... I'll be there in the afternoon and unfortunately doing some work that evening.

All manner of options. The Local is an excellent pub, close to the hotel.

Dinner wise, depends on what you're into, I could make a more specific suggestion.

I've seen AC perform about 1/2 dozen times. Excellent rider.

It's nice to see that those comments you filled out on how to make the show better have taken effect and they are doing what the people want to really see.
