Foshay will shine tonight


The lights that spell out "FOSHAY" on the iconic tower will turn on again tonight after being off for two years.

Beginning at 9 p.m., each letter will light up individually — signifying the building\'s rebirth as a W hotel. The W Minneapolis, 821 Marquette Ave., officially opens Wednesday.

The Foshay letters are each 10 feet high and require 952 light bulbs, according to a media alert about the special relighting event.
