View Full Version : No more Mall Raid?

07-14-2008, 04:52 AM
Since we're getting a new hotel (thats pretty far from the mall), I guess we won't have a huge mall raid anymore.

What else should we do?
Theres is a science and children's museum nearby, but you have to pay for entrance.

OH MY GOD, I DIDN'T THINK OF THAT!!!! TToTT!!!! And we don't have IKEA anymore, so no more yummy $1 brekkists!!! I dun like the new hotel!!!! TToTT

Well let's see...there are two parks within two and a half blocks, but I doubt a bunch of people wearing uncomfortable shoes would want to do that...

Other than that, though, I'm not sure what's in the area...

Whadda ya mean it didn't work well? o_O? Have you ever tried to overhear a conversation of someone as you walk by in cosplay? "What is up with all the freaks all of a sudden?" xDDDD

last year the moa wouldent let them in, to get in they had to go to side doors or something. security didnt want them there. thats what i mean

What about taking a bus? Wouldn't they have them passing by the hotel?

I'm pretty sure there might be a parade around the block or me and some of my friends will go to the science museums.

But if that doesn't work out we'll just go break something. :/

Or ride the escalator in the Crowne Plaza over and over again.

I want to note that about 5 blocks away (and in the skyway) is a really great, brand new restaurant called Mama's Kitchen and it's owned by a friend of mine. Some of us should parade through the skyways over there for lunch on Saturday. Also, there are very many buses that pass the hotel, and it's only 75 cents if you stay inside of downtown.

That would be fun! I'm not really familar with St. Paul at all (although I'm not really familiar with Bloomington either, besides MOA).

what! i like the mall raid that was the high light of detour an i wanna play some zombie tag to that's fun...anyway can't we take a shuddle to the mall?

It would take about an hour-hour and a half to get to the mall by bus, then by the time you get back the day is pretty much over. Even if the Crowne Plaza offers their own private shuttle to the mall, travel will take at least 40 minutes each way.

I don't mind walking a bit since I always pick cosplays with comfy shoes.
Well, There is a Chipotle and a Subway nearby.

And that Childrens Museum. But I don't think they'll let us in.

the childrens museum would definatly kick us out for they might think the cosplay would be offesive or something that would scare teh kids to death xD hmm i don't know what a chipotle is? but i would head over to subway yaay SUBS SUBWAY EAT FRESH!!!!!
