I don't think they changed Les at all actually

stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
Because I am coming to AA this weekend for business, and I know I am really going to need several.
Black Pearl does not disappoint.
I agree, it is very good for exotic martinis, so is good night gracies. thanks to uncle sam, I have spent my fair share of money on expensive drinks here in AA
Soon to be the #1 fitness and training center in AA
And I thank everyone who recommended it. It is very difficult to post while drunk.....
Rush Street, which is ironically enough on Main Street
Rush Street recently was taken over by new owners and they've turned the bar into more of a night club than anything. Some of my female friends said it's known as the place where married men go to find a little college girl lovin'.
I would say that your assessment is accurate!
i suggest you pull the skeeps to ricks move, it is a college classic and obvy you can get your grind on after your shark bowls
Just Win Baby
Ricks offers up some pretty solid cocktails
Arguably the best shark bowl in AA.
Black Pearl was pretty fantastic when I went.
For today, goodbye. For tomorrow, good luck. And forever, Go Blue.
Screw the martini. Head to Connor's for good pint of beer.

... under the Hoke regime there is no room for sissy martini drinking, queen's english speaking, ninnies who aren't tremendous and don't like to be touched.
But seriously, no man should ever be caught drinking out of one of those silly glasses. Drink blanton's neat. That is all.
Do Something. If it works, do more of it. If it doesn't, do something else.
You calling Roger Sterling a ninny? Nothing the least bit girly about a true a dry martini of gin and dry vermouth, or even the perfect martini of gin, dry vermouth and sweet vermouth the OP called for. I recommend the Grange on Liberty for an awesome hand-crafted cocktail.
... but Sterling is a fictitious character from the 1960s. At that time, they also considered Elvis to be the Devil's music.
There will never be a substitute for a nice hard alcohol served neat... be it a good vodka, tequila, whisky (yes, please), etc...
Martini drinkers are brought up, and it's not James Bond.
Though your OP made me think we went from moonshine to keg stands with the coaching change. What would Lloyd be? Sipping brandy, wearing as ascot?
(Saving this for July for "OT: What drink would you associate with Ex-Michigan coaches?" Bump Elliot- discuss)

... made me imagine him sitting in his expansive library, surrounded by history professors and foreign dignitaries, listening to Pat Suzuki's version of The Victors, while talking about the Good War and quipping, "Meeting FDR was like opening your first bottle of champagne; knowing him was like drinking it."
yep, that's what it made me think. Weird, I know.
I am thoroughly looking forward to this thread. Preliminary thoughts; Four Loko = RR, Keystone Light=Brady Hoke.
Football is both an identity and a terminal illness. A rhythm and a chaos and an opiate for the mind all at once.

We all know there Is but one drink for a man or woman out on the town in Ann arbor or anywhere else in this universe: the Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster.
Ashley's has the best beer selection in town.
Have the T-shirt. And trust me, it is on my list of stops this weekend (I am looking forward to a nice Porter Flight). But sometimes there is absolutely nothing like a perfect, ice-cold Martini to un-fuck your head when you really need it. And I am absolutely positive I am going to really need it. My preferred method is to just have the bartender crack my skull open and pour it directly on my brain....
if you don't get distracted by the superior wine offerings.
And Gandy Dancer. I'd say those are the two best bars for business meetings. You can get a good martini in either place. They both used to have Noilly Prat vermouth; not sure if it even matters anymore since they ruined Noilly Prat.

relaxed older vibe there, but I gotta say the drinks were shite.
“ The best way to predict the future is to invent it.” — Alan Kay
They have good-sized martinis, and cocktails (solid menu) are half price during Happy Hour, which is not only weekdays from 3-5, but also on Thurs-Sat nights from 10 pm to close. By the way, pints of draught beer are $3, and 12-oz. bottles are $2..
Full menu, including beverages (except the cocktail menu for some reason) can be found on their website: redhawkannarbor.com.
I make my martinis with absolut Peppar, and they're one of the few places in town that carry it. Nice menu too.
This is MICHIGAN
There shall be no debating this.
Yeastbound and Down
Great Lax State
is a great place. I liked it more when you could smoke cigars. It's still a great place for those who can find it..
It's under an office building. Kind of a weird place.
Good Night Gracies has good drinks and live music, usually jazz IIRC. 1st and Huron.
"It is a characteristic of wisdom not to do desperate things"
La Dolce Vita if you've got the need for a cigar and a nice single malt, but if you want a martini I'd say Gracies.
Although it sounds like it's your first time in the area if you're asking recommendations, so maybe you should try The Landing Strip in Romulus. I think they do deals on a bucket of beer and crabs....
You might WHAT your first wife? Go back for seconds?
From the Red Cedar Message Board: "God hates us." Yes He does Lil Bro, yes he does. Everyone hates you.
That sounds like the perfect name for a strip club...
Just the lapdance.
Knight's offers the most honest pour in AA. $5 or so for a huge martini or manhattan.
They have VERY generous portions as well. I personally get either jack and coke or long islands when I go there.. Knights, Webbers, and Westside Banfields (zeeb and baker) are all not stingy on their drinks and ALL have good deals.
Directions to Columbus: South till you smell it, east till you step in it!
i understand this is a thread about drinking, but I don't understand what is so good about knights steak. sure their ground beef that is used at restaurants like red hawk is the best you can get in town, but for grilling at your house, the selection of different grinds at whole foods is better, and for steaks sparrows blows knights out of the water, its not even close
Knight's has a brilliant business model of getting everyone so hammered for cheap nobody will care their $20 steak is basically Applebees quality. Seems to be working for them. Amazing what a little extra booze will do for a joint.
You must not go there often. Because their steaks are definitely not applebees quality.
You do realize it's their meat market which supplies most of the top restaurants in the Ann arbor area..
...they serve the best beer flavored martini in AA.
Black Pearl followed by Babs. The black pearl is going to be the nicest place, but if you are interested in smoking a cigar head to babs.
I don't drink martinis but the place I'd like to find myself on any given night is Ashley's with a nice Stone beer. Had office hours there before, never a business meeting.
Is Stiver's still around?
"After all was said and done, there was nothing left to do."
Rush St, Black Pearl and Melange all have some pretty good martini's
In terms of martinis Rush Street and Black Pearl are it.
In terms of atmosphere etc I like Babs.
If you want a great Martini see Gary at the Chop House. Great bar, great bartender. If you head down to la dolce vita for a cigar, you still get his mixes. Black pearl is okay, but too many gimmicky martini's. Just give me the classic martini.
