Minneapolis was a great time. Thanks to all the LJers I met: the bears at the Eagle and the gay ruggers of the Minneapolis Mayhem. I had forgotten what a great city Mpls is. Wonderful people, great food, and lots of culture. It’s just too bad that the weather sucks so bad: sticky and hot in the summer, freezing in the winter. Maybe I’ll move back after global warming turns the place into Palm Desert.


Me in front of Takashi Murakami wallpaper at the new Walker art center addition

My only complaint is that the denizens don’t know how good they have it. My time at the Eagle was spent listening to the bears and leathermen bitch about the Eagle and what a bad bar it was. I was standing in perfect fall weather, eating wonderful roasted pork and drinking Octoberfest beer, surrounded by almost 200 hot men, and the conversation was about how there was no good bars in town. I know things are changing, and the basement of the Eagle might go all-leather with a dress code. But face it – you guys are having a lot more fun than any city within a 600 mile radius. So buck up!

I love the wallpaper; looks like you did too.

I agree; Minneapolis is a wonderful city. I haven't been to The Eagle there, so maybe it's time to start sweet-talking my LJ friends into a place to crash ...

yep. sometimes you don't know what you have until you no longer have it.

Sorry that I wasn't able to see you when you were...family engagement.

You are right...everyone whines too much. When you've done as much traveling as I have, and see what some of the other bars are like across the US..you see that what you have at home it pretty darn good!

It was nice meeting you Saturday night. I'm sorry we was not more talkative but maybe someday I can explain it. I had you confused with another Patrick from Denver (and originally from Minnesota). I hope you had a good time here.

Nope! There's only one of me.

Let me know if you ever come to Denver

It was really great meeting ya, Patrick! You are one cute bloke... ;-)

Thanks! Back at ya...


and did you notice you never heard me bitch?

People were bitching? I didn't notice. I was probably distracted.
