If you can only make one knitting/crocheting/tatting trip a year this is it!
For those of you who have misplaced your yarn or are looking for some place in the mall to find some (since it isn't generally a stocked item)--try the "Dollar Tree" on the Third Floor``they usually have close out yarn that you can't find other places for only $1/skein!
But otherwise you could try the Alpaca shop but I do not recall seeing any yarn there--but I've never gone completely in.
For those on a food budget ($wise) there are many of your favorite fast food joints; and those on a food budget (calorie/health wise) there are several places in the food courts--yes that was plural--that offer healthier choices such as stir-fry, fish, etc. There is even a place called Arthur's (i think that's the name) that specializes in slow food--its a place to sit and relax, the food is pretty reasonably priced and the food is good but be prepared to spend a bit of time there.

Be sure to check out 'Underwater Adventures' on the lower level---they have an area where you actually go UNDER the fish. See the shark that was attacked, by another shark! Watch as divers swim with the fishes and feed them out of hand...even the sharks get a turn. Or take the dive yourself!

For more info visit the Mall Of America website for info of up coming events, available shops, restraunts, hotels/motels, directions, parking, etc.
Click on the 'Knit Out' banner to get details on the event/hotel offers/valuable coupons etc.
