Lone Meow Wolf

I'm contemplating driving from Denver to Santa Fe in a few weeks to check out Meow Wolf by myself (as part of an extended Artist's Date/Artist's Way weekend, if it matters). Will I regret not going with my husband or someone I know? I feel silly asking this question, as I am perfectly capable of having a good time on my own, but I wonder how much of it is about experiencing/discussing/absorbing it WITH someone else?

Free Afternoon in San Francisco with no car

I've got a bunch of time to kill tomorrow afternoon in San Francisco. I'm staying on 7th Street at The Carriage Inn and my current plan is to just walk up the hill to the water, but is there something else I should be doing? I don't mind taking a taxi, but walking would be ideal.

Downtown Minneapolis bathrooms

I will be temporarily stranded in downtown Minneapolis sometime this week, and while I'm not particularly worried because there's a ton of food around the IDS Center, I'm more concerned about bathroom availability: Are there any public bathrooms around that area in downtown Minneapolis, or "customer only" bathrooms in cheap restaurants? Since I'll have to eat somewhere anyway, I can plan for that if necessary. Thanks!

That's pretty much the question. We'll be in Jefferson County, Colorado, USA, towards the end of July.

What trails would/could you recommend? [more inside]
