The women will go shopping and the boys will ......

I am planning to be in the MOA / Bloomington area (Hilton 3900 American Blvd W,) this labour day long weekend. While us gals go shopping our guys would like to go where? Open to suggestions. Both of our guys are avid pool / billards players. Any suggestions for a local bar / pool halls?

I can't help much on the billiard situation. Sky Deck Lanes in the mall has a billiard area but everything I have ever heard or read about the place is awful. See Yelp for example.

Are there other things they like to do? Explore downtown perhaps? Maybe take in a ballgame at Target Field?

Unless I'm not looking correctly, the Twins are out of town next weekend. The State Fair continues through next weekend and might be an idea. There are several pool halls located in southern suburbs, like Shooters in Burnsville. There is a casino and horsetrack not too far away. What's your overall plan? Are you staying near the Mall? Will the guys have a car?

Other than the 2 local newspapers (startribune and twincities), there is an entertainment weekly here, which might offer some more ideas: http://www.citypages.com/

Ah yes, they (Twins) are out of town. Then perhaps a ballpark tour could work.

Do indoor rock climbing at REI in Bloomington? Visit the MN Air National Guard Museum at the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport (this would only work on Aug. 31st-open cockpit day)? Visit Fort Snelling? All three of these places are nearby.

Have them take the Lightrsul downtown to end of the line by the nee Target Field, and they can check out Fulton Brewery Tap House, then Small Timers Billiards downtown.

Google both.

And if they're taking the light rail up to Fulton, stop at Northbound Smokehouse Brewpub along the way. What's not to like - microbrew beer and smoked meat all under one roof. It's just a few blocks off the light rail stop.
