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. Now we are looking forward to taking the light rail from the burbs and avoiding parking all together. 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!

Great show! Well written, well cast (especially the dad and the sheriff!). Just plain fun. The 60's era set was perfect! Good for everyone from kids to boomers and beyond. Some of us will remember. Some will learn new bits of history. Very cool!

This was a very enjoyable play. The young boy does an amazing job, and it was a very entertaining evening. The only problem we had was my date did not have enough leg room. He was very cramped and couldn't help but have his knees against the seat...continued

The History Theatre is proving itself, not just as a good place to see history-related plays, but as a place that is among the Twin Cities' best for high-quality theater (that happen to have a history-related dimension).
