Question What are your plans . . .
. . . for your stay in Dearborn when you're not attending convention events?

I was looking thru the restaurant listings in Dearborn and put BD's Mongolian BBQ on my list of places I wanna eat at. Another place I wanna go to is Benihana's

I also want to hang out any OLS'r party(ies) that may take place (I've heard from some that there are a lot of parties, and others said there isn't any parties, but those people also claim to be ) - please don't forget to put me on the guest list of your party

I don't know if I wanna do any of the tours that were listed at the convention site. Still thinking about that.

So, what are your plans?

All I know is that Kat and I get off the plane at 9 a.m. on Friday morn. Who's meeting us with a bloody mary?

That BBQ place sounds cool Kiss. We should all go and take it over.

Tour...not my bag. Although the Ford museum sounds kind of neato.

I'm not going to the convention but work right near the Hyatt. I hope y'all don't mind me letting you know about the what's around there.

Michigan Avenue in West Dearborn has all kinds of restaurants to choose from. Today I saw they are building a Buffalo Wild Wings, maybe it will be done by the time you all get here. That area used to be a great place to shop for almost anything and there are still a few places but mostly just places to eat. There's a Weight Watchers in a teeny tiny spot right in the middle of it all :-)

Anyway, there's a Putt-Putt golf place on Ford Road in Dearborn Heights which could be fun...There's the TPC in Dearborn for real golf but don't know much about it. Greenfield Village is kind of interesting, lots of history. The thing I remember most is that they had the chair that Abe Lincoln was in when he was shot at Ford Theater and Edison's workshop, I think...but there's a lot more than that.

Oh, I almost forgot, there's Miller's Bar, famous for hamburgers. Their burgers make national lists for the best of. I don't know if they're that great but it's a thought. Bailey's is fun, they have pool tables.

There's also Guilio's right there in the Hyatt, they have an excellent buffet.

If I weren't such a homebody lately I could give you good ideas for fun. I hope you have great weather, it's usually quite lovely here in June.

For those of us not planning to go on either Friday nite event, maybe we can have an OLS'er party at Benihana's. I'm game for any place to hang with my fellow sweepers.

And miniature golf between friends sounds like fun as I haven't played that in ages.

I go to Dearborn and Detroit all the time, and I just want to tell you that Greenfield Village is not just a museum, they have a museum, but also the village is just great to see and to shop at, I like the village better than the museum. Also donít forget, they have shuttles from the Dearborn Hyatt going 24 hours to the three casinos: MGM Grand, Motor City, and Greek Town Casino. All the casinos have some really nice buffets and good restaurants. Greek Town has some great restaurants and all walking distance in and around the Greek Town casino. Also there are shuttles to Comerica Park for a Tiger baseball game, Joe Louis for a Red Wing Hockey game, or Ford Field for a Lions football game. They are all in the downtown area. You also can take a tunnel bus across the river to Windsor Canada, (Bring your birth certificate or pass port) they also have a large casino there. The Fox Theater has some good shows going on with Vegas performers all the time. You will not be bored in the Detroit area. Have Fun!!!!
