Beginning with the Minnesota Vikings' Sept. 23 home game against the San Francisco 49ers, the city of Minneapolis wants to allow nearly two dozen food trucks and a beer stand with Minneapolis brews to set up on two blocks of 5th Street along the Hiawatha light-rail line between Park and 5th Avenues.

The idea is part of an experiment by Mayor R.T. Rybak and other city officials to create a more vibrant downtown game-day experience in anticipation of the opening of a new Vikings stadium in 2016.

Rybak: "We're not going to wait until the stadium opens to have a more exciting game-day experience. Doing it now allows us to experiment a little bit. Let's jump in and let's have some fun and see what happens."

So when they set up the party next to the Mississippi River to handle people arriving by boat, would that be Watergating?

I understand the reference...but that would actually be more like Sailgating. Laughing

I like this idea, not the watergating but the railgating, fun idea. Makes me want to go up there just for the food.

I don't really have any interest in going to the dome to watch the game because honestly NFL games in person are pretty boring. I would however be all over doing some railgating outside and watching it on a big screen TV.

Go railgating and then when the game starts hop into a bar and drink and watch the game, does sound better then going to the actual game.
