A couple from Bulgaria and I went to checkout the Mall of America on Saturday, December 9th of 2006. It was Margarita's first time here as she just arrived in America for the first time just the day before!
Margarita finally finds the store she's been looking for-Just Silver
"BLOOMINGTON, Minn. -- Minnesota is home to the most Korean adoptees in the world. To celebrate this community's rich culture, guests are invited to Mall of America to experience the second annual Passport to Korea, a three-day event showcasing various aspects of traditional Korean arts and entertainment.
Guests will be captivated by Mugunghwa dancers, performing dances that originated three thousand years ago from ancient Shamanistic rituals. There will also be an abundance of other performances including Taekwondo, sword and food demonstrations. A highlight of the event will be the traditional Korean fashion show, accenting the costumes used in a recent, award-winning historical Korean docudrama, "Queen Sun Deok."

Shortly after the mall opened, MARC held an ecumenical worship service in the rotunda of the mall. Between 1,000 and 2,000 people attended the event, sparking the interest of many congregations in the Twin Cities. As congregations began asking mall management to allow them to use space for worship, it became clear to the management that this was a trend they would have to deal with. Manager John Wheeler informed MARC of the mall's new policy on worship space: worship services would not be allowed unless they were interfaith.
Initially MARC, as a Christian council, began looking for space in individual stores. But as it became clear how difficult it would be to find such space, the members began thinking about the management's decision about interfaith groups...." Meaning Store
"Next year, Livin' It skaters and the King of Kings Skate Ministry will embark on a rock 'n' roll bus tour. Baldwin and his skater cohorts will go "where the kids are, where Satan controls them, where Satan has a stronghold in the shopping malls, and tell them about the Gospel of Jesus Christ." Moments before his testimony, an ad for one of the Twin Cities Festival's major backers, the Mall of America, pops up on the numerous big screens throughout the capitol grounds. The Mall of America, along with more than 100 sponsors and 800 churches, donated the $2.1 million needed to support the festival. Luckily, no one offends the proud Christian sponsors at Walser by talking about devil-made SUVs.
