The SPAM museum is up that way isn't it?
http://www.spam.com/museum


Thanks irisarbor!
Appreciate the suggestion!  I will probably drive so this could be on my way...
 
I'll also be able to check off a couple of bucket list breweries... 
Toppling Goliath - Decorah, Iowa - https://www.tgbrews.com/
Surly Brewing - Minneapolis, MN - https://surlybrewing.com/
Chickenpluckr ???
 
I'd like to suggest this for consideration as a non-food activity...

It's about 50 miles south of MSP, closer to Albert Lea, MN.  Too bad.  That would have been a fun and easy non-food (yes, I chose my words carefully) stop if it were closer.

I am preparing for an early arrival so as to visit this historic site.  
 
BTW...I am available most dates with the exception of Christmas, Valentine's Day, Paczki Day and my birthday....hoping I still clear the 80% rule!

Somehow this sounds like the plot of an upcoming Will Farrell /Ben Stiller movie.

It might be a doable activity for those who arrive early.
 
Are the towns of Alvin Lea and Arthur Lea located nearby?

The Spam Museum is in Austin, not Albert Lea. Albert Lea is about 20 miles west of Austin. 
Austin is 100 miles south of Minneapolis.

More or less what I said, just off by 50 miles.  Not horrible for eyeballing it though.

The last weekend is Memorial Day, which is a non-starter for us as well.
 
I'd like a little warmer weather too but timing-wise for us, the weekend of May 18 isn't good for us either.

After Nashville, I think we need to see what major events are going on in MSP the weekends in question before we vote.

Working on it.
 
Taking a cue from one of the locals:
rumaki
...There are many colleges and universities in the Twin Cities. They aren't "college towns" as such, but the dates of commencement can affect hotel availability in the cities proper -- less of an issue in the suburbs.  Keep that in mind as you're looking at May dates.  Commencement for my department here at the University of Minnesota is usually on Mother's Day.

Already called UM (graduation on 5/11), and next week will call University of St. Thomas, Macalester College, and Hamline University.
 
FWIW, Easter hits on 4/21, Passover is 4/19-27 (only the first couple nights matter), and Mother's Day is on the 12th.  So far, the most viable long weekends (Thursday-Sunday) are 4/11-14, 4/25-28, 5/2-5, 5/16-19, and 5/23-26.  After that, we're into June.
 
I'll also call the local chambers of commerce and ask about major events for those weekends.

Boy, you sure don't run into those problems with Cleveland or Gahanna. You probably don't run into 'em in Pittston either.

I'm willing to take the reins somewhat on the choice of date.
 
Here they are, with the mid-May option added:
 
April 18-21
April 25-28
May 2-5
May 16-19
 
I've already mentioned we have a commitment on April 20. If we had to choose, we'd pick the crawl, but I'd rather it not be that weekend.
 
Other than Pie Diva, who would be out for May 16-19, who would be out for sure for any of the weekends?

Yeah, I wasn't considering Memorial Day weekend an option. My job would never let me off for those days anyway.

You're right, David.  Easter is April 21.  Passover April 19 - 27.  Also, the Twin Cities Susan Komen Race for the Cure is on a weekend in May.  Around 40,000 runners.  They have not set the date but it's usually on Mothers' Day.

Already discussed in post #79.
 
Folks, I know we're all really excited about the next Crawl, but it's still a minimum of ten months away.  The whole point of choosing the city before the date was to then look into potential conflicts during all weekends under consideration.  The closer we get to the actual dates in question, the more likely we are to get accurate answers. 
 
IIRC, in years past, the earliest anyone needed to have a firm date, for vacation request purposes, was the end of August.  Is this still the case, or does anyone need to nail this down immediately?
