Obama speaks in north Minneapolis in February 2013.
Today, President Obama comes to Minneapolis for an overnight trip. It's his second journey to the Land of 10,000 Lakes this year. (Check out our humorous post about the first here.)

He'll be at a private fundraiser hosted by Sam and Sylvia Kaplan tonight, and tomorrow, the president will deliver a speech at the Lake Harriet Bandshell. But assuming Barack has a bit of free time in between, what should he do with it? Below are some ideas.

The federal government paid for a chunk of the darn thing, after all. Why not experience the fruits of that investment while getting to see a slice of the Twin Cities core? (On the other hand, imagine the transit/traffic gridlock that would ensue if the president hopped on the train!)

-- Barack could hang out at Hidden Beach --


Well, he has admitted to inhaling more than once, and no outdoor area is more ganja-friendly than Hidden Beach. (At least when the cops aren't watching your every move, as has increasingly become the case in recent years...)

-- Barack could stay a couple extra days and go to the Lynx game --

Barack is a big basketball fan, and the Lynx just visited him in D.C. a couple weeks ago to celebrate their 2013 championship: So why not return the favor by making a long weekend out of it and seeing the Lynx in action Sunday at the Target Center? I mean, it's not like he has anything more important to do this weekend or anything.
