I was able to wrangle our tickets from work to attend the first ever game a the new US Bank Stadium, and had a ball. I took a pair of our friends, as well as my Mom, and I believe a great time was had by all. We were stationed in the Mystic Lake Club Purple - an all-inclusive club on the second level. It was nice - not fabulous - but the beer was cold and the food fine.
Speaking of food, my Mom was wavering between the brat and a turkey sandwich, when I piped in, "Get them both! You don't have to eat both and the price is right." Just that move alone probably saved us $10 in concession fees.

Club Purple has an exclusive deck, and here's the view. Beautiful:
Speaking of beautiful, the stadium is a gem:
