Good for you. People have different preferences. If I were to move back to Colorado, it wouldn't be to Colorado Springs.

So, back to the topic.

If there were one thing about Minneapolis that I don't like, it would be the endless committees and public fourms that meet before a major project can begin. I wish we had more of the Chicago spirit and just got the job done, no questions asked. If you don't like it, TS.

"Plus, Minneapolis doesn't really have culture..."

I'm really surprised no one has argued that. Especially with the "Minneapolis has more theaters per capita than any other city in North America outside NYC" fact and the renowned Guthrie Theater (building a new state-of-the-art center, no less), the Walker Art Center expansion project, a new central library in 2006, plus the Children's Theater Company (#1 in the country according to TIME).

It seems to me that Minneapolis and CS are about the same in weather conditions.

Exclamation Minneapolis rocks

Wow what a stupid comment. I go to school in Colorado right now. I am from Minneapolis. I thought I would like Colorado, turns out it sucks and everytime I go home I am struck with how awesome Minneapolis is. Minneapolis is the most underrated city of all time. The people are educated and fun, crime is low, and we have culture everywhere. To me, Minneapolis is the greatest place to live on earth.

I like Minneapolis and hope the best for it. But the liquor stores close at 8pm? That's just crazy.

Still, if you can handle the winter it's an awesome city, I suppose.
And pretty much everybody in minneapolis/st paul can handle it. I know I can.

Minneapolis does not suck. But lets be honest, it is once again a very boring town. The whole thing is just so suburban. 6 blocks from the Nicollet Mall feels like suburbs already.

It seems like except for cedar-riverside once youve met one person in Minneapolis, they all seem the same

I don't think what I said is bad. Every city is ugly during the winter.

Minneapolis is a midwestern town. Nightlife wise, it feels like a conservative-with-money midwestern town. Chicago is the only exception.

Let me guess, you drove out from downtown once on I-394 and made all your generalizations from the vantage point in a car?

Based on almost everything I have seen you post, you know virtually nothing about Minneapolis.

Winter is pretty at first. Then it's leafless trees, brown slush, grey skies on the backdrop...

Let me guess Colorado Springs and Columbus are more exciting.

LOL! Yes everyone in Minneapolis-St. Paul seem the same. Say that to those living in north Minneapolis, or those living in Frogtown, or West St. Paul, or along Lake Street. It's obvious that you've never experienced Minneapolis or St. Paul so please give it up already. I can't believe the mods haven't put an end to your constant b.s. Everytime you state something, you're proven wrong. When are you going to stop?

Your ignorance was funny for awhile, but now it's getting annoying.
