Hey Dimpfelmoser,

Sounds like a pretty cool trip, great time of year as well…not too hot yet. As you have already been to New York you are probably aware of the great clubs, shops etc so I won’t bore you with those. We stayed at the weirdest but very cool place a couple of times called the Carlton Arms Hotel in Manhatten…very cheap. Run by art students,
huge murals on all the walls…huge female elvis in one room I stayed in, another had a huge hand holding a martini glass. It also had the most aggressive cockroaches I have ever seen as well, lousy showers, sheets from Bellevue hospital and a mental health group home on the upper level.

Hoping to go to Chicago in April so will keep you posted on that. Minneapolis is great, check out the uptown area for some interesting shops. Always stop at the CC Club for a cheap lunch and great jukebox..they even have the Stooges Funhouse so hey stop by it is on South Lyndale. Great record shop right across from that place called Oarfolk, further down the street more cool shops. I will post some links for you later.

Let me know where in Canada you will be stopping and I will see what I can do. We did a road trip to LA once, went to Grand Forks and took a right, I wouldn’t sleep anywhere on the road, but hey thats just me.
If you do find a Twin Peaks kind of place let me know…awesome series…just look out for the little short guy…nitemare material.
