Friday Night OLS Get Together at Benihana's
Hi Gang,
For those of us not going to the Casino or Baseball Game Tours, Friday nite I thought a group could have some fun and have dinner at a near by Benihana's in Dearborn.

Please PM if you're interested in this event. Just think, OLS people and those wonderful Benihana chefs.

Starters
Why don't we just go over to Starters, right across the parking lot and then we can crawl back to the rooms? Was over there tonight and there was plenty of room for us to gather, etc. Good food too! Met the owner while there. Really a nice guy.

Good to know you've hooked us up a watering hole. Is there a barstool with my name on it? I'm there!

Hey, is there a drugstore at the mall?

Yes, we have the bar!!
There is a small drug store like one of those lottery/personal items/snack items (I don't really know what you call them) as soon as you go into the mall from across the parking lot from our hotel. We are supposed to go out onto Michigan Ave. today looking for the CVS or Rite Aid type one.

The one at the mall has all kinds of personal last minute type stuff there, but not a full drug store like CVS. Hope that helps. We did warn him about us coming over for lottery tickets and I think he did call to make sure he had a bigger supply for the rest of the weekend.

The mall parking lot walking is only about a 5 minute walk if that. You younguns can do it in probably less. The hotel sits on the outside loop of the mall, which is set up like most major malls these days. You can ride the outside loop to get all the way around the mall and then tuck into the parking lanes when you see where you want to go.


Bar stool marked??? Mine is!!! There is a gigantic seating area that they use as seating for those having dinner. We can assemble there, at the bar itself or I think I did see another room off to the side where we could take over!! I'd go for the regular dining area. They had a large group there last night of graduates and there was plenty of room and you could push the chairs and tables together, etc. I just love the fact that it's reasonable prices, good food, no excellent food, and right across the parking lot so we can crawl back to the room. The bar in the hotel is expensive. Beer was I think $9.00 a bottle. Get the drift? I had mixed drinks (Malibu Bay Breeze) and i think I paid $4.50 a drink, plus tax. Big Difference!!!

Like I said, I met the owner last night just by luck and he overheard us talking about sweepstakes, became interested and is looking forward to having us all over --- I did warn him ----- and he don't care. The staff is also fantastic -- will be a lot of fun just being with them too.

I'll be waiting for ya all and will be going over after the Meet and Greet tonight!!

Too bad we left our karaoke equipment at home or he'd probably have hired us to play for you guys!! We'll make our own music!!

If it looks like some of you are going to be at the bar tonight, I'd love to come meet all of you. If you can, please post where the partying is going to be so I can come find y'all. Have fun!!
