If you were Joe Mauer...where would you hang out?

Joe Mauer was born and raised in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota and was a huge Minnesota Twins baseball fan from his earliest days.  I know that means he probably enjoyed catching Minnesota Twins baseball games at the old Metrodome Stadium in Minneapolis.  But as an adult living in the St. Paul area, there is so much more to do and see.  Though I wish Joe Mauer would send me a list of his favorite haunts, I'm left to suppose.  So here's a few I think would be great places for Minnesota Twins baseball player Joe Mauer to hang out, whether with his fellow Minnesota Twins players or out with his fiance.

Grand Avenue in St. Paul
You can find just about every kind of food on Grand Avenue, along with tons of shopping and people watching spots.  I could see Joe Mauer comfortable grabbing a drink at Billy's on Grand or grabbing a slice of pizza at Punch Pizza.  Of course, Cafe Latte is the place to go for a big piece of chocolate cake, but I have a feeling that an item like that is not looked on too lovingly during the strict nutritional guidelines of the Minnesota Twins baseball season.

Eagle Street Grille in St. Paul
This would be a great winter hang-out for Joe Mauer to catch a burger and fries before supporting another Minnesota pro team--the Minnesota Wild right across the street at the Xcel Center.

Downtown Minneapolis
Endless supply of nightclubs, restaurants, concerts, and OF COURSE Target Field, home of the Minnesota Twins!

Lake Minnetonka
Hot summer days are perfect on the cities' most famous lake.  All Joe Mauer would need is fast boat, some cold beverages, and a few friends to spend an enjoyable day on the water.
