There are not a TON of outdoor patios here in the Twin Cities, given the climate. But I LOVE dining outdoors. Here's a little gem of a patio wedged between two buildings. It is a shared patio for both Cahoots and The Neighborhood Cafe. The brick walls, mismatched furniture, plants and hanging lights lend lots of charm to the space. Selby Avenue just east of Snelling.

It is UNUSUALLY humid in the Twin Cities right now and people are just wilting. And I know some very dedicated boys who actually played a double header at this ball field yesterday. And God Bless their poor overheated parents for sitting through both games.
Midway Ball Field behind Central High School.

Snelling and University should be avoided like the plague right now. I feel sorry for all the businesses along University right now taking a HUGE hit so the light rail can be expanded. In fact, there is more construction right now in Saint Paul than I ever recall in my 8+ years here. I kinda sorta don't like it at all!

Given that we have one of the largest populations of Hmong in the United States, it is no surprise that there is a large festival every year celebrating their culture and independence. I've never been to it but Como Park is always VERY crowded and busy. And they seem very partial to their bright umbrellas protecting them from the sun. Seriously, EVERYONE had umbrellas.

In the wintertime, this would be piles of rock salt for melting snow and ice. In the summertime, it's fertilizer.
Or as I like to think of it, a giant pile of poop.
I will say this, their customer service totally rocks. I LOVE this place!
