    Sure seems like it's "Juicy" not "Jucy".

    Juicy Lucys are, so Wikipedia tells me and I consequently tell every out of town visitor who passes through the Twin Cities, the ?Philly cheesesteaks of South Minneapolis.?

    I occasionally travel from a point between the two places to the fairgrounds. My favorite path from the fairgrounds would be south on Snelling under I94, right on Marshall (turns into Lake St. in Minneapolis) and left on Cedar. This will take you through several interesting urban areas and is a pleasant ride except in rush hour.

    Just for fun drop into Matt's and tell them they spelled it wrong and that you know that it is true because you read it on the internet.

    Looks like you got me there!

    I guess there's a bit of controversy as to who invented it and the spelling...again from the Internet!

    The Juicy Lucy burger was invented in a south Minneapolis bar sometime in the 1950s, and depending on who you talk to, that was either the 5-8 Club, who serve the Juicy Lucy, or Matt's Bar, who make the Jucy Lucy, and let customers know that "if it's spelled correctly, you're at the wrong place".

    We have a good public transportation system. Bus line right outside the Fairground which will take you to light rail, light rail goes right to Target Field. There's limited motorcycle parking near Target Field as well. I always take the train. Besides, you can get a better view of the Twin Cities, instead of concentrating on riding/driving.

    Near? Shamrock's or The Nook (both are in St. Paul). Best? The Jucy Lucy at Matt's. I could probably be persuaded to lead a ride to Matt's...

    You could ride the bus from the fairgrounds to Target Field. A #3 A or B bus will take you without any transfers. $1.75 to $2.25 depend on rush hour or not. It would be about a 34 minute trip. The park is wonderful, in my opinion.

    Minnesota Saints play on Wed and Thursday nights of the rally at Midway Stadium less than a mile and a half away from the rally.

    Agreed. The Saints are a lot of fun and where else can you watch a baseball game while getting a haircut, a massage, or from the comfort of a hot tub?

    Giving this a bump as I'd like to hear any comments on the TMAT myself. This is the first year that I have an adventure bike, (F700GS) and I'd like to arrive a week early and attempt some part of the trail..... So, anyone out there with TMAT experience willing to share would be surely appreciated....Also, will there be a GS Giant meeting place somewhere before the rally, like the one before Salem, where folks met up and rode some trials together?

    Rally wine?

    So will one of the St Croix based wineries be providing a local specialty commemorative for the 14 rally? I imagine that it would be good to pull together a MN wineries ride to go with the Beer Ride already underway.

    We haven't really checked into a rally wine. Unfortunately, Salem wine sales weren't as great as expected. Don't want to "whine", but we may still have leftovers.
