We've all had enough of the weather and as things slowly start to improve, our patience for spring's arrival starts to wear thin. The folks over at


in Downtown Minneapolis are looking to help make these final days of winter's frozen wrath pass a little more gently.

On its Facebook page and website, UNION has announced a "pop-the-top" contest in which readers can guess which date the restaurant will finally open up the retractable rooftop on their beloved downtown patio. The person to guess the correct date will win a $100 gift card.

According to the post, "In the spirit of Spring, and the growing excitement for sunshine and sandals, we are holding a contest to predict which date UNION Restaurant will "pop the top" and retract the glass rooftop! The contest winner will receive a $100 UNION gift certificate to enjoy Spring on the UNION Rooftop with us!"

The contest rules are fairly simple: Visit; leave a comment on the blog page with your guess as to when UNION will pop the top; wait until the day they actually open it and that's when they'll announce their winner. In the case of multiple correct answers, one winner will be drawn at random.

Spending the early days of spring on the rooftop at UNION with a free $100 to spend sounds pretty good to us. Head on over, drop a comment, and keep those frigid fingers crossed.
