    Marked my calendar for this after Rob mentioned it in his build thread. Been watching the long-range weather forecast.
    Looks like a hot & sticky weekend coming up, with a low chance of rain.

    Activity at the Fairgrounds tends to trail off after 6pm. Since it will be cooler later on, I might head up to North St. Paul for the History Cruze show Friday evening. Should be big if conditions are dry.

    Curious to see if any of you guys might be there...




    :cool:

    The North St. Paul History Cruze was PACKED last week.
    The entire main drag (7th Ave.) and every parking lot was completely filled with cars by 6:30.

    Food vendors, a couple of bands, several antique shops (if you or your EBL are into that kind of thing) and a few bars (some with bands) are all on the main drag.

    If you have never been there.... It's worth going!

    It's free too!


    Don't know if I'll be able to make it to Back to the 50s.
    What days you guys going?

    Thanks for the heads-up Terry.

    Guess I'll go for an early dinner and try to get there well before 6 (maybe before 5?).

    Was hoping to get a spot in the bigger lot south of 7th Street.
    But based on your description it might be better if I try one of smaller lots to the north instead.

    You planning to be there Friday?




    Know of any good parking areas that aren't displayed on this map?

    By the time I get off work and make it to N. St. Paul... There's never any consistently "Open" lots.
    I've been there over a dozen times and I don't think I've parked in the same place more than twice.

    Keep your eye on the corn dog stand... I always visit that when I get there.

    Friday will depend on the weather.

    If it's raining, I'll be playing pokeri in Plymouth.

    Thanks, I'm learning. Don't suppose there's an area where GM cars tend to cluster?
    If not, I'll try to locate the corn dog stand on 7th and park my car as close to it as I can.

    Chance of rain Friday night is down to 30% according to the NWS. KARE11 predicts any rain passing to the north of the Cities late, with the dewpoint decreasing into the evening. That news encouraged me to start this thread. :happy:

    Congrats on getting everything done. Bet you're happy the Biscayne is ready.
    Looks like I won't be able to get to the Fairgrounds this weekend--got a bunch of family stuff going on.

    I'm still up for the History Cruze tho. Willing to meet us in North St. Paul in the evening Bob?
    Ain't too far from the Fairgrounds.

    Chance of rain Friday night is down to zero.

    Looks like it might be just you and me Terry.

    Of course with over 80 views one or more others might want to surprise us.
    I understand people being on the fence after all the rain we've had.

    Liking the lower humidity. Should be a nice night.

    Hope to find you there!

    I'll be there around 6:30.

    GF lives a few blocks away from 7th Ave... I'll be stopping there first.
