"I've never seen them do that before," said a Metropolitan Club waiter as I snapped this picture.
One of those funny little sections above the entrance stairs
Best view available from the "B" ramp.
This appears to be the floor to the home dugout!
The Puckett atrium fireplace is just barely visible at the far left.
Complicated pedestrian crossing
Viewed from up Sixth Street, the tip of the canopy looks like the claw of some gigantic crustacean!
TCF Bank Stadium. Not for baseball, but still pretty cool to watch being built.
Let's be honest and say that this promenade, which will face the HERC plant, won't be the most exciting part of the streetscape. It has to be provided for circulation reasons, but there won't be much to see unless vendors and other attractions take root here.
In the top of the 9th, the sun hit our backs and summer took one last long look.
Note that, even though the scoreboard appears strategically placed, it's the outfield stands which block any potential view of the field from this roof.
Gate 29 "Carew" is at right.
Looking back toward the doorway into the club
TC caps everywhere! (Is that you?)
That's my mom. She scored the whole game on her Gameday program (bought for just $1 on the opening night special -- thanks guys!)
Stairs and escalator down to the platform
Looking from First Avenue toward the ballpark (over the top of a construction barricade)
Seventh Street circulation

Work going on under the steel.
Ticket window at Gate 29/Carew
Items promoting the Twins 2014 All-Star Game bid. I got to bring one of these buckets home, and Noah got his first-ever taste of Cracker Jacks.
The Seventh Street facade
Stairs down to Seventh Street now have the start of railings
This was actually taken from the top floor of the International Market Square.
Concept drawing for the fan/player appreciation wall. (Click to enlarge.)
I noticed this detail while taking the previous picture. I figure that it must be the VIP entrance from the surface parking lot. I don't think there is any parking inside the ballpark, so this entrance will likely be for suite-dwellers and other VIPs, though I can't say for sure whether players will enter here.
Did I mention that the cheerleaders looked pretty sharp?
Griffith Stadium (notch visible in lower photo at far left)
Indications that club seating (the wider spaced areas above each dugout) will be a major presence in the lower deck
Note that the sign in the background will NOT be changed because "Twins Way" doesn't extend this far north.
Love the red flowers -- just like the original concept drawings. That NEVER happens.
