Sadly there is not a moderately priced cafe/wine bar within 2 blocks. The nearby Radisson (maybe it's a Towne Court) has a very mediocre restaurant. On the corner is a LOUD place 'Waters....something' but I'm concerned that restauranteurs ignore needs of 'mature' people. I sincerely hope when St Paul redoes the former Macy's block, it includes a restaurant/bar similar - if not the same- as the old Rosewood Rm.

This family has been regulars at the History Theater for years. We have always parked in the ramp by the Children's Museum, just a block away.

When the Central Corder opens in June, the train will stop literally at the door of the History Theatre. This tremendous venue will be incredibly accessible from anywhere the light rail goes or can be picked up!

I wish everyone would go see this play. It is powerful and intense. In light of the recent news of Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair's lenient sentence in his repeated sexual harassment trial (which he pleaded guilty to), this play is very...continued
