Friday Night Lights

Rather than planning just a single event for Friday night, your site committee decided that you might enjoy the opportunity to explore Minneapolis and St. Paul with new friends and old.  

Friday Night Lights: No Reservations Required
Local Guide Provided

Mall of America Leave from Law School at 5:00 p.m.

Let UMN LRW Program Director Chris Soper help you navigate your way to the biggest mall in America. There’s an indoor amusement park, movie theatres, miniature golf, restaurants, bars, and clubs. All in a single mall.  Meet Chris at the law school at 5:00 p.m. and make some new friends on the two-block walk to the light rail. Stay as long as you like and navigate back to your hotel on your own. 

Lowertown Blues & Funk Fest Leave from Law School at 5:30

Join Renee Anderson, the LRW Program Coordinator at UMN, for this fun fest at Mears Park in St. Paul. Renee will help you navigate to the light rail, which is a two-block walk from the law school. She’ll help you find your way to Mears Park to see Tribute to Prince (6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.) and Average White Band (8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.) Stay for as much of the fest as you’d like and navigate back to your hotel on your own.
