    I just found out that I will be spending a week in Ann Arbor at the beginning of August for NJATC instructor training. What is there to do near the U-Mich campus?

    Any casinos?
    Any brewpubs?
    Decent food (not cheap frat boy stuff)?
    Good pizza?
    Strip joints?

    I didn't feel like starting a different thread because all the local experts are already here.
    The Red Hawk on State St. (near North University) is a great bar. Many different beers on tap. Granted, I haven't been there in a while but I'm pretty sure it hasn't changed much. Additionally if you are herbal friendly The Stairway to Heaven (next door to the Red Hawk) is a must see.

    I actually like the Mongolian BBQ (corner of Main and I think Washtenaw) is good food.

    Pizza you need to hit Pizza House (just south of South University on Church).

    As previously mentioned Deja Vu is in Ypsilanti but not the best. Leggs is also in Ypsilanti (unless it has been closed down again) but the women there are straight outta the trailer park.

    All the nearest Casinos are in Detroit.

    Ashley's, Arbor Brewing Company, Grizzly Peak, Jolly Pumpkin, Blue Tractor.

    I'll defer to alfa .

    The Original Cottage Inn, Pizza House

    Deja Vu in Ypsi is the only one AFAIK, and I wouldn't really recommend going there.

    My friend that organizes the away trips I go on (wore the Mott jersey at the poster's game) got a group of 50 tickets. I know someone else who asked all her friends and ordered 200 tickets.

    Got the e-mail from UofM today that tickets are on sale this morning. Both the aforementioned friends got tickets ahead of time as season ticket holders.
    Yea, we got our tickets about a month ago. One of the nice things about being a season ticket holder...

    It was pretty funny reading the seating chart- they were nice enough to leave the prime, prime seats to the Hockey season ticket holders. But relative to the Big House, it was a tiny, tiny, tiny little alottment.

    This is one of the best articles I've EVER read in a college newspaper - the level of writing and, the insight on the character of the subject are at pro level. Amazing. If this is what Sports Editor Ryan Kartje can do as a collegian, he has a very bright future ahead of him if he chooses journalism or anything else.

    Oh, and that Berenson. He's interesting, too..

    It makes sense, it gets the ice (marginally) closer to the stands. We should have the speed advantage against MSU, which in theory means Olympic size ice favors UM. Still kind of surprizing since UM doesn't reguarly play on big ice and all of the portable rinks that have been used recently are NHL size. I don't know if they can modify them easily.

    As I am typing this, a radio ad for tickets is on WTKA.

    Can't wait.

    Just a little FYI if anyone's interested, I was kicking around on iTunes the other day and found a bundle of classic NHL playoff games (search for "playoff hat trick"), including game 7 of the 1965 Stanley Cup finals between the Blackhawks and Canadiens. I wasn't aware until I started watching, but it turns out Red Berenson is in the game. So, if any Michigan fans out there are interested in watching some old-school hockey with their team's coach in the lineup, it's there and at least right now, is free

    That seems to bode well for our two top flight risks.

    Could it be that we have a summer with no defections???? that would be so nice.

    That's awesome. I'd shove it in Dean Lombardi's face, IMO.

    My comment actually had nothing to do with hockey or posters in this thread. Double top secret super squirrel stuff.
