Large Landlocked Mermaid

Sitting high atop the roof of the Mermaid Restaurant and Lounge off of Ramsey county route 10 in Mounds View, Minnesota, she is queen of all she can see -- the parking lot. Granted there isn't much reason to stop here, but then again what reason do you need to see any of the Big Things?
