    On Saturday July 14, I'm doing a run up to the Twin Cities to partake in the Park Plaza/Club Carlson 50k bonus.

    Hoping some folks will be up for dinner/drinks. All are welcome, c'mon out, after all it is Bastille Day !!

    PS: Thanks to MSPeconomist for suggesting this venue !!

    I thought about flying up to Minneapolis... but didn't see this in time to do anything about it. Wish you could check me in! I might see if there is a reasonable fare around the end of this/first of next month.
    Oh - for my Country Inn stay, was definitely asked for ID. For my Radisson stay, I was not asked for ID and had a prepaid rate. Also was not recognized as a Club Carlson member....can't wait for the survey!

    give me a heads up if you do go & if you'd like to meet some other FT/MPers, there are a number of the Chicago gang making the trek in August.
    I've filled out a number of those surveys, both positive & negative (one stay severely negative), & all I ever get is a boiler plate thank you letter from a property mgr.

    How did it go? Did the hotel check ID? I am thinking about coming for 2 nights alone but doing 2 separate reservations (myself, my wife).

    fun meetup, so glad some MSP locals were able to make it out.

    The hotel did for sure check ID, for every person in line in front of me as well as the two friends who also had reservations.

    I posted a review of the property in the hotels forum

    My wife and I are both ticketed on AA using 15000 BA Avios pts each LGA-MSP and reserved a night in each of our names. Seeing the Radisson promo all the way through! Upon completion my wife and I will have over 400000 pts.
