I am currently looking to re-schedule this to 2/13/10 because this would probably not interfere with the T-Party field for UMN. This seems like the most plausible date at this point and I will let you know when a final decision has been made.

You can take the Metro from the airport to downtown. Conveniently, the Metro also stops near Kayak Cafe, which is right by WashU's campus. If you time everything correctly and leave early enough, you should have no problem...unless there is an issue with the Metro that I am unaware of at the moment.
