Where do you work out at? If you live on the Southside, do yourself a favor and check out Los. It's on Franklin and 40th near the U. What part of the Southside do you live on? Near the U? or down by the Lake Street ghetto? (just kidding).
I lived in MPLS while in lawschool - MPLS is dope as hell - but being a Florida boy, the winters were a bit much, oh yeah, the lack of hot latin women was also a bit disturbing. But overall a great town, with a great music scene, great bars, and really down to earth, cool people.
