Killen, of Kieran’s, reported that “everybody was in a good mood.”

Minneapolis police seemed to agree. Their recap of the event involved no major problems requiring response from the heavily staffed downtown command center, which had 200 cameras trained on spots throughout the city. “We didn’t have officers responding to a lot of calls,” spokesman John Elder said.

Killen said he’s ready for more big events, and he will get them. The Ryder Cup comes to Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska in 2016. And then there’s the Super Bowl in 2018.

“Let’s bring on the next one,” he said.
