Next up, a drive into the heart of the monster (aka Downtown) to park our car at Union Depot. The parking experience there is fraught with peril (yes, even more so than a regular parking lot) due to the plethora of pillars:
I was pretty happy that Andy was driving. Yikes. Although at least we were able to pull Felix into one of the extra wide spots. Some of the slightly wider-spaced pillars had two spots in between them. No good.
From there we hopped on the light rail train in front of the Depot to head over to our favorite Vietnamese restaurant, Que Nha. Unfortunately, it is temporarily closed for renovations (boo) so we had to settle for our second favorite, Ngon Bistro. It's slightly classier (with a liquor license, even) but we just don't like it as much. It sure is pretty though... and the food is always good.
|I love the ceiling. Also, there were other people there, they were just sitting by the windows.|
|Funky, local art on the walls that's for sale.|
We made one more stop before heading for home. I wanted to check out the construction progress on the new baseball stadium for the St. Paul Saints. It's only a few blocks away from SPUD, after all:
|I think they're going to be ready in May.|
