Enjoy Yourselves!!!
Have a blast!

PS - As a former Detroiter, let me remind you that if you hear loud "BANG BANG" sounds...

DUCK!!!


Chances are, it's not fireworks!


Wish I were there with ya'll though - even if it is next to Detroit!
When I was up for my 20th reunion a few years back, even with the "new" construction of casino's and such, the areas just past all those improvements remained as war-torn looking and dangerous as they were when I worked downtown in the 80's.

Seriouslly, do be extra careful there folks - keep your "big city eyes" wide open at all times while having a great time!

Aww, it is not that bad here in Dearborn. But the mall can be a little decieving. It is Beautiful but you do have to keep your eyes open. Don't go wondering around there at night.

Welcome to Dearborn!

I'm here too! So sleepy though... I was up late last night and waaaay too early this morning. Hockey game starts in a half hour so I'm in for the night.

See y'all tomorrow!

Greektown
Greektown is a fun area. Just don't wander too far off the Greektown area. Stay in groups don't go anywhere alone. There is alot of police and security in the area. It is like any big city. You should have a great time.

I will be there Friday if you want more details.

We're here too!!
Got in Tuesday afternoon. Hotel if fantastic.

Great food court across the parking lot at the mall and we ate at a bar/restaurant called Starters which is right as you go into the mall. Had a great steak/grilled shrimp special for $11.99, food court today. Went back to starters tonight and almost closed the place. Had no problems at all. Will definately be on of the free night hang out spots for us this week.

Been over at the mall three times already and absolutely not a problem.
