Downtown Detroit Basketball bar/Hockey @ Joe Combo Anyone?

Submitted by Helloheisman on March 22nd, 2013 at 6:13 PM

I was checking to see if anyone is going to hit up downtown Detroit tomorrow for some Basketball viewing/Michigan Hockey at the Joe? Any special place for basketball viewing parties? I am hoping to get down there around noon... Maybe Neemo's then take the shuttle down to the joe... thoughts?

Actually pretty nice little Saturday. We're going to Home Depot. Yeah buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed Bath and Beyond... I don't know! I don't know if we'll have enough time!

In the same boat as ya brother. 

Got hockey tickets. Probably gonna go for the first game and watch the game on my March Madness app while at the first game of the CCHA Semifinals.

JLA doors open 1 hour before event, so should be open at 12:05.

Olympia room, on the ground floor, has always been open to the public for college games.  Plenty of TVs and tables and you can eat while watching.

that's my plan

will probably have the game on.  So will a handful of bars on Michigan Ave.  May want to call Nemo's to see if they're running shuttle buses to/from the Joe.

If you don't mind taking a little hike up to the Cass & Warren area, Lefty's Lounge, which is adjacent to Wayne State's campus, has a decent sports bar atmosphere as well. If you're only interested in drinks, then Tap at the MGM Grand is OK as well, and it is closer to the Joe.

I have a nice little weekend planned. The wife and I are going to Adventures in Homebrewing. Then I am bottling my beer. Then I will probably head over to the joe. Maybe bed, bath, and beyond. I don't know, I don't know if we will have enough time.
