The kitchen was well-stocked for baking and cooking

They are only two wine glasses
downtown and walking distance to the stadium
Great central location especially if you are getting around by car and
The atmosphere is fun and the location was perfect for a downtown Mpls event
but it took 30 minutes to reboot and the signal was worse than before
so we managed by logging on another signal which was apartment 1
