10/03/2009 - 11:00pm Went there last week

The wife and I went last week. I wasn't too familiar with their beers, so I got a sampler. The bam and the bam noire were great, and the chocolate stout was pretty neat too. The food was also very good. I had an outstanding burger and my wife had a cobia (fish) sandwich, which was also very tasty. Anyway, you should definitely check the restaurant out. I loved it, and am planning on several return visits.

Menu is here:

Dude, you are an all star.

We'll definitely get to La Giostra and Antico Noe, and hopefully see as much as we can. As much as I want to hang out in Italian Skeepers, WMU might have to wait until we get back to the states.

Thanks again for all the info. I'll let you know how it goes.

That's about the best Saturday morning I can imagine. I'm sure your son (and you) will love it.

08/28/2009 - 2:53pm Hey man, I really appreciate

Hey man, I really appreciate the info. We're spending ~ 2.5 days in Florence and about a week in and around Rome.

I've heard from a couple other people that Florence is a nicer city. Hopefully we'll be able to give it its due in the shorter time period.

I'd definitely appreciate any more info you have. We've got some of the big stuff (Uffizi, Accademia etc.) nailed down, but any advice, especially other favorite restaurants/cafes/bars etc., would be greatly appreciated.

Normally I'd be skeptical of pear ravioli, but that's about the strongest endorsement one can give. I'll let you know how I like it.

I'm a sucker for pageantry, so I usually leave the golf course tailgate a bit early to see the step show (drumline performance) and the marching band processional to the stadium. I think the step show starts about 1.5 hours before gametime at Reville hall on Hoover st. and the marching band processional leaves about 1 hr before gametime. It's a pretty cool display of school spirit and tradition, and I think I'd enjoy it if I were 11.

Also, a request: I'm too new to post on the board, but my wife and I are traveling to Italy and will be missing the CMU and ND games. Can anyone help me out and post a simple board message to see if there are bars in Rome/Florence that broadcast the Michigan games? I'd greatly appreciate it.
