First we ate at Five Guys in Woodbury. We then drove to the Foshay Tower in Minneapolis and checked into the W hotel. Then we walked to Target Field 0.6 of a mile away and got in line to enter the gates. Katie, Osten and I got new puffer vests--Brad declined his vest. We then got to our seats in section 110 row 15 seats 7, 8, 9 and 10. We arrived plenty early so had time to get some beer and peanuts, a bottle of pop and some sunflower seeds. I also got two programs and a pen so I could score the game.

We saw Justin Morneau throw out the first pitch, saw two fighter jets fly over the stadium, a 100 year old Veteran raise the flag, Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors in the crowd, Roy Smalley preparing to announce for Fox Sports, a friend from River Falls on the big screen with her son and the twins win their home opener!
After the game, we walked back to our hotel where we lounged before heading Manny's Steakhouse for dinner. Our waitress introduced Brad and Osten to the umpires for the game and also ordered us a really yummy dessert on the house.
Osten was charming all sorts of people all day. He had a man give him a batting helmet, exchanged high fives and fist bumps with the people in our section, had two waitresses exchanging handshakes with him at dinner. He is a charming guy and garnered us a fair amount of attention yesterday.
After dinner, we tried to go to the top of the Foshay, but the observation deck was locked. We tried again in the morning, but it didn't open until after we were leaving.
It was a pretty stellar day six of Spring Break 2019
