Getting back to the subject at hand, I'm very happy for the organization, and it was great to see a strong showing by Twins players and Twins fans alike, despite the poor performance on the field. It appears to have been successful for all of the parties involved (pun intended)."If I knew the world would end tomorrow, I would still plant a tree today."

I have been to a couple all star games now, and Minneapolis/Target field absolutely crushed it in every way.
-Getting around was a breeze, they had a green arrow from the hotels to the ball park, which was genius/simple but allows all the drunks/tired/weary to easily find out how to get to and from the ball park.
-The ammenties at Target field were just top notch as always. That new beer machine was fun to use and they had some awesome food options including an ridiculous bloody Mary that includes a slider or brat on it. Those beer machines actually made the total cost of beers cheaper I believe, $6 got you a full cup of frosty cold bud light.
-Downtown was clean/safe/fun and the parties were second to none. Those fireworks were LOUD we remember thinking it must be pissing off some of the people in town who had to work the next morning.
-The game was fun and made even better by the Perkins 1-2-3 perfect inning. The staff at the ball park were great.
-The Derby was a blast as well, however it still runs a little long IMO and gets a little redundant. It's a shame that Morneau/Dozier didn't make it out of the first round.
-All star game souvieners get an F from me, typically I don't complain about high prices, but good lord: $45 for t-shirts, $60 for hats. There is zero possible way for someone to take a family to that game which is a shame."You miss 100% of the shots you don't take"- L. Harvey Oswald
