What to do all by my lonesome in Minneapolis for two weeks?

I'll be staying in the UMN area for two weeks in August doing research, sans car and sans company.

Can I sleep in the airport if I've checked luggage?

I'm flying to the Minneapolis-Saint Paul airport later this month. My flight arrives around 11 PM, but thanks to an unforeseen scheduling snafu, my ride won't be able to pick me up until early the next morning.
