Office Outing

Hey everybody, looking for something to do in Minneapolis with my co-workers. We've done plenty of happy hours, but we're looking to do something different this time. We threw around the idea of going to Canterbury Park as a group, that sounds pretty good. Can anyone think of any other fun group activities? Thanks!

Canterbury is good. Especially get a table (or two) in the Clubhouse level...indoors, A/C, table service, great view.

A lot of suggestions might depend on the nature of the group.

Office outings we've done....

Paintball (yippeee...I can finally shoot the boss!)


St. Paul Saints baseball

Twins too...but Saints are more fun, less serious

"Beer Ball" at a local softball field

Local Casinos

St. Croix River dinner cruise in Stillwater

Squeeze in 9-holes of golf after work

Other possibilities...

Segway tour (humanonastick.com)

Raceway Park (dirt track autoracing - goracewaypark.com )

Saint Paul...

It's a winter activity but try curling at the St. Paul Curling Club. We've done, it's a great group activity and they do a wonderful job catering novices. The can cater lunch as well.

Plus they share a parking lot with The Happy Gnome, so the post game activity is even easier to plan!

We've done some fun ones:

St Paul Saints game with a catered picnic

Cruise on Lake Minnetonka

Tour of the Ramsey House then a meal at Forepaugh's

Bowling and lunch at the Bryant Lake Bowl

Gaming at Block E, bowling upstairs

But you know, the best ones included just hanging at someone's house. We would go somewhere for lunch, then play games, enjoy the lake, have a fire, etc. Just laying low, relaxing and enjoying each other's company.
