Have you ever wondered why all the sports stadiums in the Twin Cities lack parking structures? Or even convenient accessibility from any public lots.
There's Twins Stadium on the northern edge of Minneapolis without a lot. The same for US Bank Stadium on the southeast side of the city. It could be argued that the parking is even worse for a Vikings game than for a Twins game and most of Twins season is in better weather than the Vikings season.
The parking problems aren't limited to Minneapolis. The St. Paul Saints just had a new stadium built for them in Lowertown and the city didn't build a parking ramp. Not only did they not build a ramp, but they took out 210 parking spots in order to build the stadium!
Lack of parking is just one reason to hire a limo to take you to and pick you up from a sporting event. Then there's the drinking part. When you want to have a few beers while you enjoy a game you can do so without worry when you know Bloomington Limo Service will be there to pick you up after the event.
Then there's just the pure pleasure of being driven and not having to deal with the traffic congestion near the stadium. This holds true for the Wild and Timberwolves as much as it does the Vikings and the Twins. When you drive yourself you need to add at least 40 more minutes to your timing to account for the lines of cars waiting to get into a parking structure and then again waiting your turn to get out. Or parking a distance away and walking 15 minutes to the stadium.
Hiring a Limo Takes Away All The Stress
You can arrive at the front door of the stadium, stress free and in style, courtesy of Bloomington Limo Service.
Parking for concerts at the top live music venues in the Twin Cities isn't any better. First Avenue. TCF Stadium. The bigger the act, the worse the parking. It isn't limited to the bigger clubs either. As an example, the Pour House on 5th Street showcases popular acts, but the parking is scarce.
It's no different for the classical music, theater and opera halls either. The Ordway in Saint Paul, home to Minnesota Opera, refers its guests to a parking ramp more than a block away. It isn't much better at Orchestra Hall, located on 11th Street, in Minneapolis. And if you're going to make an evening of it with dinner prior to the show, do you really want to attempt to find a parking spot twice? Or walk several blocks either to dinner or to the Opera or Concert? The hassle of it all takes a lot of joy out of your evening.
While a walk may sound quite lovely, it depends on the weather. As we all know, the weather in Minnesota is anything but predictable. If you have tickets to the annual Symphony Ball and it's 82 degrees with high humidity and you're in a tuxedo and your wife/date is in an evening gown and heels, does a four-block walk still sound enjoyable? What if there's a common summer shower with water puddling at the curbs?
Perhaps you want to catch Annie in December 2017. One of Broadway's most loved musicals is being produced and staged by Ordway Productions in the heart of winter. Do you want to bundle up in coats, gloves and boots to stomp through the snow? Then sweat throughout the play while you hold or wear that outdoor gear? The phrase that comes to mind -- UFF DA! Hire a car or limo from Bloomington Limo Service and you don't have to deal with any of that. Step into the limo in comfort and step out of the limo in comfort. Door to door service. No hassle. No sweat (literally!)
Chanhassen Dinner Theatres
Just about 15 miles west of Bloomington is Chanhassen, Minnesota and the Chanhassen Dinner Theatres. Yes, theatres... plural. If you've never been you may not have realized that there is more than one theatre, so more than one act, at a time. Live music, live theater and special events. It's a great date night, special event (anniversary, birthday) destination. But it's also a little bit of a drive. And if you want to enjoy a few alcoholic beverages, you certainly don't want to drive all the way to Chanhassen. Or maybe you're getting to that age where it's difficult to drive in the dark. Or perhaps you just want to make the evening that much more special. Give us a call at 952-479-4242. We'd love to play a role in your special night.
We love our theater in the Twin Cities. So much so that the only other city in America that has more theater per capita than we do is New York City and the only city, other than NYC, that has more theater at all than we do is Chicago! We're only the 16th largest metro area in the U.S. but we have the third largest live theater scene.
Along Hennepin Ave, between 5th and 10th streets sit eight live performance venues; The Cowles Center for Dance & Performing Arts, Illusion Theatre, New Century Theatre, Pantages Theatre, Skyway Theatre, State Theatre, Brave New Workshop Comedy Theatre and the Orpheum Theatre.
As brilliant as that is, now imagine trying to park in order to attend a play at one of these venues on a night when every venue has a performance. You are guaranteed a long walk; unless you hire us . Then it's rock-star status for you and your friends. We'll drop you off right in front of your theatre and we'll be waiting for you when you step out.
Mystic Lake Casino Events
If you just think of gambling when you think of Mystic Lake, you're missing some of the best entertainment in the Twin Cities. Well known musicians from Huey Lewis & the News to Tony Bennett routinely perform at Mystic. So do stand up comedians like Joel McHale and Patton Oswalt. The best news is that the 2100 seats in the Mystic Showroom are extra-wide with plenty of legroom so you'll be amazingly comfortable as you enjoy the entertainment.
Even though Mystic Lake provides valet service, imagine how long you'll wait for your vehicle when 2100 people exit a show at the same time! Even if you park yourself you'll still be fighting the crowds to get out of the parking lot.
We'll help you skip the struggle. You'll cut right to the front of the line when you hire a limo and driver from Bloomington Limo Service. Yes, we'll still sit in line with the other cars, but you'll be relaxed in the back seat with an after-concert cocktail while revisiting the high points of the evening with your guest(s) rather than behind the wheel waiting for your chance to back out of your parking spot or squeeze into the main stream of traffic heading for the exit.
Whether you want to enjoy a few alcoholic beverages, want to avoid the parking hassle or dread driving in the congestion, Bloomington Limo Service has you covered from Twins baseball, Timberwolves and Lynx basketball, Vikings football, Wild hockey, Minnesota United soccer, Gopher, Tommies, Auggies, Pipers, Scots or Wildcats to the theaters, music venues and concert halls in and around the Twin Cities.
Just let us know what you need and we can make it happen! Fill out the form above or call us at 952-479-4242.
