    Pretzel necklace is a must. Without them, all the beers tend to blend together as the nights goes on.

    It was on the calendar, but we got invited to a thing in Chicago so we're going there for the weekend instead. Weekends in Chicago seem like a very Michigan thing to do.

    Not surprised on McFaddens, actually am on Montes. New Holland Brewing company is going in right across the street. I bet those fucking twins sold it to someone, no way they would outright close it with that amount of business coming back to bridge street.

    Lame, I was thinking about going there tonight and trying their fish.

    Pretty sure they're just rebranding the location as something else but it's iteration as montes closed a couple months ago iirc. The Bridge area is blowing up for sure.

    Just read they are bringing it back as a restaurant. Should probably just brand it as another Rockwells at this point, at least O'Toole's is still up and going. I don't even want to think about the amount of money I dropped in that place. At least 4 nights a week for the better part of 5 years. :facepalm:

    Yeah, Montes/Estabilishment/whatever you want to call it needs to have food. GR needs some decent places to watch games downtown to compete with Peppinos.

    Seems like it. I know they struggled to get tickets last year. I guess if you want to go you should check on it sooner rather than later

    Edit: Or maybe that's just their way of making sure I don't show up!

    Just call your local alley, odds are they have a ton of shitty used ones they're willing to part with for cheap. My buddy has a set, and I'm going to con my dad into making me an ND board set, and an ND bags set.

    Yeah, I can handle the board build, looks simple. Good call on the pins, 25 for a set on ebay with an additional 35 shipping, lol.

    Another addition to the neighborhood on gameday.

    I flew into DTW on Wednesday around 2. Was supposed to fly to GR. Flight canceled, no confirmed spots until the next night. So I drove from Detroit to GR, then GR home after returning the rental car. All in, a 220 mile trip during which I averaged about 35 mph.

    Still not mad, though, because I get to live in the best state in the union.

    The only issues with fowling are that a) it is harder than you'd thing, b) the boards are pretty big, and c) your arm is dead the next day. Otherwise, great game.

    Nah, I know where to go. There's some great parts/places. But the bad parts outweigh them. Easily the worst city north of Mexico.

    That's not true. Between the automobile industry and music, Detroit has made a big impact on the country, which is why its decline is fascinating to many. There wouldn't nearly be as many stories and photo essays about the current state of the city if it didn't have an illustrious heyday at one point.

    And yes, I realize you're just in here to be an irritant, but I'm sober, bored and not ready to sleep yet.

    I kind of enjoy his flop-sweaty try-so-hardishness. I don't mind if he gets a bite now and then. If it goes on and on it does tend to get annoying though, which is his goal.
