8,500 for concerts...which still keeps us out of the running for a lot of the really cool concerts that often visit venues such as the acoustically horrific Target Center or Xcel...

$80 million for hockey and concerts, but we couldn't get $16 to get the poop out of the lake? Our priorities blow.

I wish more hockey players knew how to blow.

It should say: "We *hope* the 1% food and beverage tax will fund 27 percent. If it falls short, we'll have to raise your property taxes."

Also, it's 0.75%, not 1%.

$80 million. That's a few laid off park & rec workers... at health care CEO salaries.
