where to go in northeast US in January for weekend

A friend from China is in the US and is interested in having quintessential American experiences. If you lived in New Jersey and owned a car, where would you consider going (four hours or less) on a weekend in the first half of January that you could show someone a uniquely American experience via? The caveats being that we can't leave the US that weekend and I don't own camping gear.

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!

Also, what small progressive church should I attend on Sunday morning? [more inside]

Where to stay near Minneapolis airport (MSP) before very-early flight?

Next Thursday I have a 515a flight (on American née US Air, so Terminal 1 is my point of departure) out of MSP. Assuming I'll go through security at around 400-415, it seems silly to stay at a hotel the night before. The airport is open 24 hours. What I'm curious about is if I can I go through security around midnight and try to catch a few ZZZs in the terminal? If not, can I sleep safely outside of security, or will local law enforcement tell me to move along? [more inside]

Inexpensive & save place to stay near Convention Center in Minneapolis?

I am going to be in Minneapolis for a conference this August and am looking for a place to stay. I usually enjoy staying in smaller, affordable hotels, BnB's or hostels. It would be great if the Convention Center was easy to reach, either on food or by public transport. I will be traveling alone and won't know anyone at the conference. So it's important to me to find a nice place to stay where I feel safe and can relax after a long day. Do you have suggestions?
