This was discussed here a few months ago but haven't heard anything since that discussion.

They really should put one in Minneapolis. "It's twenty degrees and the hockey game's on!" ... The marketing almost sells itself!

Maybe over by the new ballpark or even by the Old Spaghetti Factory.. both would be accessible by the train.

I have heard Rosemont, Il. It might take a few years to get off the ground, if it's going to wind up anywhere in the Chicagoland area. It'll be there....

But they'd have to change it to "20 BELOW and the hockey game's on" ... all those truth in advertising laws, ya know...:wink:

A few years ago they had all the plans to put one in the Mall of America.
Turns out the mall wanted way to much to lease the space on level 4 so Margaritaville Holdings pulled the plug on it.
Sucks for us Minnesotans.

I nominate the Piano Bar as it's location. What a waste of space.

How about the space that used to be Dick's Last Resort at North Pier?
