So my BFF and I have five days in Minneapolis, two of which we're spending at an educational conference (Yay FlipCon13!) in Stillwater. Hope us eat well AND have fun in Minnesota!

Maybe helpful details:
--This is our first time hanging out in person. We are cross-country team-teachers and spend a lot of time on Google Hangout (think 15-20 hours a week on GHO and on the phone) so having some things to go out and do together will be good in case it's a little awkward to be in the same room at the same time. This is also kind of a special occasion for us, because it was through a previous year's conference that we originally met.
--I'm gluten free, and he should be. So it'd be nice to find some good gluten free options. Money isn't a super huge deal (he's getting per diem and I have some money saved for this), and we'll probably want a decent meal at least once. But casual cheap-ish restaurant suggestions are helpful. We both like good food, and will eat most cuisines.
--We're both pretty flexible, although we aren't huge on crowds, shopping, or paying a lot of money to go somewhere (like a zoo or theme park or something). We have considered driving to the border of South Dakota so we can say we've been to another state. Yes, we're weird. He's in to sports, but I'm not, so that's probably out too.
--We will have a rental car and are staying in Hudson, WI.
--We already know that we'll be going to get a tattoo at Uptown Tattoo, and seeing the new Gatsby movie. Beyond that, we're in town Sunday morning (a week from tomorrow) through Thursday afternoon. The conference is 9-3 on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Thanks everyone! I'm so excited for this trip, and to see the hivemind's suggestions!
