Bill Lindeke,
Weird Nicollet Walking Tours

Local writer-geographer Bill Lindeke takes you on a guided walking tour of noteworthy nooks, semi-historical doorways, obscure sidewalks, and lost alleys of Nicollet Avenue. Tour includes true tales from Newspaper Row, ancient parking lots, the undersides of skyways, the city’s smallest plaza, and more. Learn about the strange oddities, forgotten curiousities, and urban eccentricities of Minneapolis’ most well-trodden street. This leisurely-paced tour meets at the Northern Spark Info Tent at Xcel Energy Plaza and lasts about an hour. 
Tours at 10pm and midnight.
