    You know, I can see why people like this park, since it has a small park feel. But it sucks to get around, prices are through the roof and you have to struggle through a legion of beggars and bullshit artists to get in. Tack on the fact that I'm in Detroit and this sucks.

    I like Comerica. We had shitty seats once when I went in '06, seated way up high in the UD right above the noisy air conditioning units for the vending area below our seats, but otherwise I've liked it. Love the way the park is seated below the grade line, view of downtown rules. Reminds me of the Mariners' park.

    I liked it when I went, but I was like 13 then, so what do I know?

    It's the same shit as ours except cheaper.

    All parks except ours are below street level.

    Under further review, park is solid, and the fans are nice. Concessions are through the roof and it's hard to walk around inside when the crowds are movings. Lots of hobos though.

    I'm not really a fan of it. Easily my least favourite of all the parks I've been too.

    No. Place was really crowded, making exploring a pain.

    There's a place a few blocks from the park that has a huge sign in the window that reads: FRESH SQUEEZED KOOL-AID.

    I have some paternity leave days left to burn before June, so thinking of making a run up to Comerica for SOX-DET haps next Friday. +1, Baby ballz, maybe sister, non-pos/non-cop/non-:infinite: BiL and their kids.

    In-thread reviews seem... mixed. Stubhub prices aren't terrible right now for lowers, but looking for general feelz about the seating, the in-and-around park haps, etc. Would probably stay in Detoilet Friday, then GTFO to Grand Rapids for the rest of the weekend... That part we'll save for the I Love Beer thread.

    I'll fucking murder you.

    - Google "Bouzouki Lounge"
    - Right hand side shows "Bouzouki Greektown" in Detroit
    - First entry shows... Bouzouki Lounge - CLOSED - Nightlife - 310 S Halsted St, Greektown ... (Sure... the "Halsted" could've raised suspicions if I actually read the whole damn title, but noticed "Greektown" and fuck you anyway...)

    Too many times went to a Tigers/wings game, close out bouzouki lounge/bars in greektown, gamble after the bars closed and return home at 4am reeking of smoke and wallet empty

    IIRC there was a decent beer-centered bar (Detroit Beer Company) a few blocks from Comerica, where I met Zo and Nan in '08 once.

    Also IIRC there was a decent bar called the Bronx near a college in Detoilet.

    Always liked the sitch at Woodward Avenue Brewers in Ferndale.

    Gusoline Alley in Royal Oak is a nice p-rock-ish bar.

    Been many years, though...:shrug:

    There is or used to be a Cheli's Chili across the street with a decent outside area for pre-gaming. We stayed at the Milner Hotel which was in walking distance and a pretty decent hotel but it's closed now.

    I'd skip the baseball, drive up to Ferndale, down some Schramm's mead. Then drive over to Warren and hit up Kuhnhenn.

    I'm sure the game would be on radio or something.

    Part of my Chelios hate is I've met his cousin a couple times. Dude is also a huge douche.

    I was hammered when I was there before the game; he come walking through the crowd and people are taking pictures and yelling his name. I yelled "Mt. Carmel sucks." He looked right at me and laughed then walked away. About two minutes later I threw up all over the ground.

    Kid friendly before games. Close to the park. Epic beer list. Looks like the shawerma was replaced with Hawaiian food. Zoso and I have parked for free on the street overbythere.

    The ballpark itself is nice. The art museum and Slow's BBQ down the street are good. The Henry Ford Museum is okay. The city as a whole is

    First time at a tigers game my friend puked off the top of Cheli's rooftop down onto the sidewalk. I waited 30 minutes later and puked in the Bouzouki bathroom

    What's with all this puking? I puked at a Sox game but I was 21 at the time, so obviously a drinking in public legally noob. Haven't puked in a public place like that since.

    I guess I should also mention the 47 breweries on the way to Detroit, including Greenbush, Haymarket, Bells, Arcadia, and Dark Horse.
