Check and see if Detroit Bus Tours is running, Punch Bowl Social, Fowling Warehouse, stroll around Greektown, find a parkind area there and take the People Mover (to the game and for a tour)..that outta keep you occupied.
Thanks. I didn't want to spend the day in a bar. What's the weather going to be like? Here in Atlanta it was 86 yesterday and it's going to be 50 tomorrow.

Not sure when you're coming. If it's soon, it will be chilly. There was still a fair amount of ice flow in the Detroit River yesterday. You lose about 10 degrees near the water, so layer up.

Speaking of, you'll be close to the river. The Milliken State Park River walk is close to you. That makes for a nice outing downtown.

I really don't know the answer to your question, but I just wanted to comment on your legendary username.

I'm really jazzed up about my visit to the Joe on Saturday. If that game is half as good as the Leafs game I'll be satisfied.

Does anybody know anything about Steve's Soul Food?

Thanks Detroit for a near perfect hockey weekend. I'm glad i got to see the Joe before it's gone. I only wish I'd come sooner.

Late reply, but they're were about a 1/3 of the face value on stubhub last I went to a game. Went last year, paid about $100 for 3 lower bowl seats, but then again, first at year the pizza palace could be a bit higher, but it's still pre-season.

Tigers tickets should be cheap too. Although if they're playing Cleveland, expect lots of Indians fans.
