Bummed I missed last night's game. Happy the Tom Petty was a great show. Hoping you guys had a good time seeing the game. I read you saw it at the HockeyTown. Nice. The Theatre District is a great area too.
Also hoping Sunday went well.
If you guys want the best Italian in Detroit, call the Roma Cafe (on Riopelle, next the Eastern Market). They will shuttle you too and from the game. Get the Chicken Parm. It's heaven. I'm pretty certain you'd want to make reservations though. And's not even huge expensive.
Wow. Everyone has a webpage nowadays. The IntraWeb is amazing.http://www.romacafe.com/
How is the Detroit Zoo nowadays? I loved the Polar Bear exhibit last time. I think it's one of the most advanced outdoot cooling areas for a zoo anywhere.
Everyone keeps telling me that Toledo Zoo beats it hands down. So much so that we'll be driving 2 hours to Toledo instead of 1 to Detroit to go to the zoo this summer.
As for The Meal/MHS clan, good luck at the game. I gotta think the Wings have a very good chance of wrapping this all up for you on Monday night. Pretty sweet!
I was just at the Toledo Zoo on Saturday for my little sister's wedding. They had all been telling me the same thing for years. Having finally made the trip, I'd say they're very much wrong (even though I think I might be the first to say it). What the Toledo Zoo is, though is smaller. Much smaller. I think that makes it much easier (and therefore more pleasant) "to do" as it were. Children will see their animals quickly and in succession and you won't lug around for long periods of time feeling like you are drudging in the heat.
OTOH, I haven't been to the Detroit Zoo in probably three years and it doesn't take long for them to allow it fall into disrepair. I had a great time the last several times I was there. I bring a book or a note pad and it makes me wish I were artistically inclined. If I had a talent for sketching, I'd probably be there a lot. But as it goes, once in forever ends up being enough for me.
