Once the HQ for the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, today’s Marquette Plaza building features a groundbreaking support system which includes 16 catenary cables strung between two towers. The cables worked much like the cables of a suspension bridge and give the property its signature U shape on the front of the building.
The U shape reminds me of the smiles and laughter shared by colleagues tonight at the Monte Carlo. While our friend Erin from New York City had been scheduled for open mic night, Acme Comedy Club switched the plans. Instead, Erin delivered her solid material for us on the patio of Monte Carlo and proved that while you can’t always count on a comedy club for support, you can always bank on your friends.
