Football Display Case
good luck gents
You may be getting ahead of yourself, MLive dude. Drake Harris had 8 catches for 243 yards against Watts-Jackson's OLSM last fall.
i find this extremely interesting
i may have altered the title
i thought this was america
like I said on twitter: that was almost as intense as Iowa NIT games
...talks about how UConn hasn't been in contact and how they're out. (HT: UMHoops)
Jalen, Burke, and Simmons.
Mike Hart the heavy favorite in the trolling competition
just what the Pistons need: a third string center. Joe Dumars was replaced by a mean ol' alien a few years back you guys.
this would be a close approximation of hypothetical graduation speech
no you guys they're just super pumped about COLLLLLLLLLLLLEGE
not a surprise
You were a student when Drake's closed. I don't think Steve's Lunch is around anymore, either. And we even started after the Pretzel Bell closed. I have cousins who still mourn that loss.
If they ever close Ashley's (perish the thought) I'm going on a beer strike.
My grandparents were just asking me and b/f if Pretzel Bell was still there.... they loved it back in the day
The world looks better through maize mirror tint.
Still waiting on backup.
My grandma still talks about the Pretzel Bell....all the time.

Yeah, I totally get that.
Bruegger's is a seriously important part of my morning five days a week; I mean, the staff and I swap stories about our families and such. But that doesn't mean I don't think it's a huge bummer that Drake's isn't there anymore.
Yeah, I said Drake's. Yes, I AM that old.
Jerusalem Garden has my favorite falafel ever...better than any I've had in NYC or Israel. If you like that sort of thing, it makes a great cheap lunch.
Also, meaty hippy hash at Fleetwood is to-die-for. Hash browns haven't been the same since.
but even better username. It is the first one I've seen that actually made me LOL. Followed by an obligatory OMG.

is in Ypsi. It's related to The ABC. Its right around the corner from Depot Town and Sidetrack/Aubrees/Sticks.
take her to the place the ping-pong table from Forrest Gump was made!
This list is seriously making me want to head back for a weekend.
Like people have mentioned: Ashley's, Zingerman's and Dominick's.
I don't know if this has changed since I left, but I would avoid the Real Seafood Co. on Main St. I was always very disappointed with their mains, though the starters were nice enough.
I would also recommend heading out into the surrounding area, somewhere like Saline or Dexter for some "small town charm". Maybe find a cider mill while you're out in the country and have some warm cider and a donut.
Enjoy your weekend, no matter what you do.
There is NOTHING to do.
-from a Saline grad
Cider mill is definitely on the list. I would love to check out some of the smaller towns in the area as well. I am getting so excited for this trip!!!
Zingerman's: overpriced, but not overrated.
Maize & Blue Deli is good value, but not a superior sandwich.
It is the best pizza I have had in my life. I have introduced that establishment to no less than 20 people. All but one agreed with me that the food is amazing. The one who didn't was a female who was so thin that if she turned sideways, she became invisible. "It seems like too many calories" is what she told me. It's Chicago style pizza. It's supposed to make your arteries kinda cry a little.
It's on Maple just past Miller. Perfect location to pick-up and then hit the highways after the games.
all women enjoy shopping. Plan on spending some time at Briarwood. There is an MDen in the mall so you can pick up some good quality Michigan merchandise while you're there.
For the nightlife, I'd hit dinner at least once at Grizzly Peak. Up scale restaurant as well as a brewery. Ideal for couples.
All right Lemmings. Bring the heat.
as far as malls go... Somerset in Troy would realllly knock the socks off (if you like expensive window shopping or have the money to blow)
(I was going to object to the "all women enjoy shopping" generalization... then realized I barely have anecdotal evidence to support my case.)
However, I know that he isn't going to want to drive all over Michigan to go shopping. Briarwood may not be anything special, but it is still a mall.
She might enjoy the small shops on and around main street, but there is no gaurantee on what the weather will be in early October in Michigan.

If they're in a hurry. Or bashful.
Take her to Detroit. Get some deep-fried alligator at Fishbone's. Go across the street to the pastry shop and get fat.
Take her to Somerset in Troy. Prepare to have a high credit card bill.
Eat at Zingerman's in Ann Arbor. Tailgate on the golf course.
Go see a concert, whether it's at Hill Auditorium (highly recommended), the Blind Pig, or the Ark. If you're older, the Blind Pig might not be your crowd. It's a dingy bar, but they have a lot of great bands come through there. I've seen Modest Mouse, Death Cab for Cutie, Great Lakes Myth Society, Electric Six, Rogue Wave, and Pedro the Lion there, among others. I saw Andrew Bird at the Ark, which was pretty effing awesome, too.

...Angelo's for breakfast. Make it happen.
LSA '89 - MBB Natl Champions, Big 10/Rose Bowl Champions | @MGoShoe
Angelo's on one day and Cafe Marie the next. Loved Cafe Marie.....it's on north campus but worth the two extra minutes you'll have to drive.
Good call on Cafe Marie. We have gone there for years. The food is almost as good, but 1,000 times easier to get in the place. Hope it stays that way after your endorsement!

check out Middle Earth and some of the other shops along South U. Definitely head over to Ashley's for a brew or two...great list of beer to choose from. If you want to knock her socks off, and you don't mind spending a bit of cash, take her downtown to The Earle on Washington St. They have very good French and Italian cuisine.
I do not mean to pry, but you don't by any chance happen to have six fingers on your right hand?
Sweet! My wife and I are making our first trip to AA for the Big Chill. It looks like we have plenty to do. Any suggestions for tailgating or pre-game bars?
I can't believe I forgot about Afternoon Delight! Definitely a must while in town!
so double your Afternoon Delight
People frequently forget about the rest of Kerrytown that is not named Zingerman's. There are a ton of really cool shops owned by eccentric locals if you're into that sort of thing. It's a much different part of town than campus or Main Street.
is Earl of Sandwich still there on State St? I know it only came in a few years ago but sometimes places don't last that long. I wouldn't recommend going there for a one-weekend type trip I am just more curious as to whether or not it's still there.
that didn't last long at all.
If you do want to hit a cider mill and get some of the "small town feel," the mill in Dexter is the oldest continuously operated mill in Michigan and they have a wine tasting room for a winery near Jackson. Great place in Sept - October when the leaves are changing, right on the Huron River. http://www.dextercidermill.com/ and http://www.sandhillcranevineyards.com/
Oh, yeah - Dexter also has the #1 and #4 Belgian-style golden ales in the world... http://www.nytimes.com/2010/02/24/dining/reviews/24wine.html
(Yes, I'm from Dexter and not AA, but it makes for a nice change on Sunday after the gameday on Saturday...)
All in for Michigan
