Hi everyone,

Next week I'll be flying off to Detroit, not really for holidays, but I'll have plenty of time to spend anyways.

What's hot in Detroit ?

Any good parties coming up ? Any places I should visit ?

If you have some tips, please share them !

Thanks

I wish I could tell you that there is something to do here....but there isn't :(

Catching a Tigers game is one of the few things that might be good...

Bring a gun.

Damn! Galfordo beat me too it. That's a city so f---ed up that we can agree that it's not a fun place to visit.

With that said, I've heard that's a lovely place not too far outside of Detroit. If you're in anyway into sports, maybe you could catch a Tigers Baseball game (they have a brand new stadium, Comerica Park), but I find that sport pretty dull.

Also, if you have access to a car, it might be fun to drive out to Ann Arbor, home of the University of Michigan.

Wikipedia has a feature-level (high level) article on Detroit, and even it's pretty merciless Link

Ann Arbor's article is here --again, that would at least be a pleasant, nice place to visit. --only a 45 minute drive

Looks like I'm a bit late. :emb:

Well, if you do decide to make a trip to Ann Arbor, you could always stop by Ypsilanti, which is where you'll also find Eastern Michigan University. Not particularly exciting, but it's a nice town, a short distance before reaching Ann Arbor.

metro detroit has a pretty good bar scene mainly in pontiac royal oak and mount clemens. comming out of the tunnel in ontario hang a left and youre on bar strip which is nice if youre under 21. my buddy's band is playing with kittie on the 17th at TNTs. he managed to pawn off a 100 tickets on all of us(so he says) so the after party should be pretty good. the college towns arent too exciting(if you are over 21 and dont know anyone) so i cant recommend them but they are nice in general with a good atmosphere.

your best bet is to stay in your hotel room where its safe :D

The one rentivated section of Detroit ( near the sports arenas ) reminds me of Land of The Dead.

Thanks a lot guys for all the info

Detroit doesn't really sound like the place to be, I hoped for something like NY, LA, etc but what do I know :emb:

I'm not into sports games, so it's all gonna be about clubbing :D what are the good spots ?

Oh and roker, I'll send you a pm

The only decent place (IMO) is Luna, in Royal Oak. It's far enough on the outskirts of RO that it doesn't totally suck to go to, unlike anything further in.

You could check out the Detroit Institute of Arts as well. Despite being in Detroit, it is actually an amazing art museum, one of the best in the country in many people's eyes.

DIA seems pretty nice, I'll definitly pay it a visit

And for the clubbing, Luna seems to be a decent club, and what about Blue Room ? I have several nights to spend, so it would be nice to find a couple of nice clubs. What about Jazz clubs, anything you guys can suggest ?

And the taxi cabs, are they expensive ? It seems these clubs are quite far away from the place where I'm staying..

VT, what are you planning to do in Detroit ?

We have a plant in Michigan, about an hour or so north of Detroit.

I'm planning on hitting Greektown's poker room one night and probably going out to dinner in the city on another.

I'll be there from the 12th-16th, but I'm leaving on the afternoon 16th.

If you've never been to detroit before, the airport is terrible but they have one of those Jose Cuervo bars right before the terminal. There's a special on fridays of $1 drafts with any drink so you can get PLASTERED before you get on the plane.

Where are you staying?

Not sure about Jazz clubs, I can probably find out though. I'll let you know :)

Why are you coming here, did I miss that in an earlier post? :spock:

I'm staying in the tiny town our plant is in, but I end up in Detroit every night.

You missed it, but the 12th to the 16th.

If I'm not overloaded with school shit we should hook up at the Casino or something. Will you have internet access here?
