Need Help!

16 07 2008

I got tickets to an upcoming Tigers game.  It’ll be the first time we’ve ventured into Detroit and we need help finding a good restaurant.

If possible, we’d like something in the downtown area near Comerica Park but not necissarly within walking distance. 

Neither one of us are really big on ethnic foods.  Preferably something like a pub or even a nice sit down restaurant is fine.  Anything that just screams Detroit cuisine is even better, but I’m not really looking for a hot dog joint this time. 

If we decided to go outside of the city, what are some suggestions?  I’ve heard Red Coat Tavern in Royal Oak has the best burgers in town and that’s very tempting.  Anything else?

From WILX’s website

News 10 isn’t just helping folks save money, we’re also looking out for folks who may not get enough to eat.

You can help in the “Food Fight For Hunger” by stopping by the Sam’s Club on Edgewood Boulevard in Lansing on Saturday from 7am to 5pm.
Folks are encouraged to drop off some much-needed items to stock the Mid-Michigan Food Bank.

Those items in high demand include cans of tuna, stew, spaghetti sauce, peanut butter, applesauce, rice dinners, elbow pasta and saltine crackers.
Monetary donations will also be accepted.

What Temperature is Your Drink?

Remind me if I ever meet this guy to punch him in the nose.

His friends may call him a snob, and waitresses may give him odd looks, but David Turley isn’t about to drink a beer with chunks of ice floating in it.

But that’s what can happen at restaurants that insist on serving his favorite beverage in icy mugs. And so Turley has no qualms about insisting upon another, unfrosted, glass.

“I’m pretty passionate about it,” says Turley, a 50-year-old information technology worker from Fredericksburg, Va. “The first thing I look at in a restaurant is the beer menu. I consider it a food.”

No, you’re a douchebag and you shouldn’t be allowed to leave your house.  Besides this example of douchery, the article has some interesting insights on what temperature your drinks should be served at.  It reinforces why I don’t like dark beers.  No beer should be served at 50 degrees.
