    The only actual "lot" by the JLA is the VIP lot, at least thats what it is for hockey games so I don't know what they will do with it for a concert. The other places to park are the cobo roof and the joe louis arena parking structure. Just so you know.

    I don't know if they will allow it in the structure or not. Anyone else have any info? In my opinion it wouldn't be very easy to tailgate in there. The Olympia Entertainment website doesn't have any info about it.

    www.olympiaentertainment.com is the site if you want to take a look to see if you can find anything.

    Guess I will be making a drive to Detroit in early December. It's just too bad that I now live in Charlotte, NC. That's gonna be a sweet trip though. Leave Friday after work, drive to Detroit, go to the show, and then drive back on Sunday. I've taken too many days off for REd Rocks already to do so again. See ya'll in December!

    ummmm...that's a big "not so much" on the tailgate before the show. Have you ever been on the rooftop of a parking structure right off of the Detroit river in December?

    The tailgate will have to be moved indoors. We should take over CoboJoes.

    Can't comment on the Holiday Inn, as I've never stayed there. Its on Washington, which is alright. Just don't wander too far from the hotel. You could also check out the Hilton Garden. I've stayed there just for the sake of having someplace to stumble back to after Lions games...it may be a little nicer than the Holiday Inn and I think its cheaper.

    The only problem with Detroit is that there's NO CABS. Cabs just don't linger around waiting for fares. So you would most liekly have to call one and if you do, it will take for-e-ver to get to you. Cabs in Detroit aren't like cabs in other cities. The one and only time I was in a Detroit cab it was with a driver that had a hook for a hand who kept shouting out his window and people on the street.

    Found the parking info on the olympia site.
    "Parking:
    The Joe Louis Arena garage on W. Jefferson is connected to the building. Other public parking is available in garages downtown, from which you can take the People Mover to the arena."

    I'm with Jen on the idea of Cobo Joes. Nice little sports bar to get "happy" in.

    Who knows? I haven't had to take that when I have been downtown in a while thankfully.

    I know some of the hotels have shuttles for games and stuff. Some of the bars too...the Shillelagh runs their party bus back and forth for shows. We almost got hit by it crossing Woodward after the Stones show. We could call and see if they'd run it and then have a big ol' bash at the Shillelagh before/after.

    For all the locals... Are there any hotels within walking distance to this place???? Are the closest, but not walking distance, only the Holiday Inn and Hilton Gardens??

    Thanks!

    Your best bet for walking distance hotels would be the Ponchartrain, the RenCen or...I think there's a Ramada. All are about $100-$125 I think. The Atheneum is down there too, but it'll cost more like $200.

    Transportation in Detroit can be tricky...everybody just drives themselves everywhere. I would call the Gardens and see if they run a shuttle.

    I'm pretty sure they fixed it up recently. Detroit should actually nicer and safer then usual due to the fact that the Super Bowl is just around the corner and I'm sure they don't want anything major to happen just a couple of months before.

    I'm kind of disappointed that the show isn't at The Palace but The Joe should be a good time. I'm excited.

    Oh no, don't get me wrong...I never meant Detroit wasn't safe. I don't think I've ever felt unsafe downtown. I just meant the people mover has like...six stations I think and I don't think it runs very late. I know they were gonna spruce it up a bit for the big game, but I don't know if that's happened already or not.

    Actually, even though I've never been to a concert at the Joe, I think it'll be really cool to have the show downtown. There's a lot more to do there then out by the Palace.
