Well, you need a car for this one. Not too hard to get to, but it is on the east side of Detroit and it basically a quirky neighborhood bar. My view is to keep your decor expectations modest, but go for the feather bowling, the mussels and the beer. Definitely informal, but can be fun (depending upon your crowd, the night, etc.)

ok thanks.

It does sound like an interesting place. We play bocce ball league here and are very competative. Love things like that. Especially at a bar. lol

We would only have Sat evening and I think we want to stay in detroit then. Maybe we could visit it Sat Day?

I still have to fit in the Science Center. I found out I get in free with my discovery world museum membership. yeah

I organize an annual pub crawl through all of the old time bars in Detroit, and the Cadieux is always our first stop for some featherbowling. Love the place!

There are only two lanes, and they book early, so you need to call ahead if you plan on bowling. IIRC it is $40/hour per lane. Up to 12 people can play per lane. Their hours vary on Saturdays too. I know they open early (noon) for us on our crawl in February, so check their hours before you head out there.

Apparently the mussels are great (I personally don't like mussels). They do have some good Belgian ales too - watch the alcohol content though.

Another classic place to try if you get in for lunch on Friday is the Ivanhoe Cafe, aka The Polish Yacht Club. They are only open M-TH 11:00 to 3:00 and Fri 11:00 to 7:00 (or whenever they feel like kicking everyone out).

It has been there since 1909 in the old Poletown neighborhood. It is actually in a house at the corner of Joseph Campeau and Fredrick. You would never know it was a restaurant/bar if you were not looking for it. The neighborhood has deteriorated really bad, but the PYC is safe. The owner's husband is a Detroit detective, and there are always cops in the place. Just make sure you park (on the street) within view of the guard watching cars, and tip him a couple bucks when you leave.

Great perch and Polish dishes. Tons of history - make sure you check out the "trough" at the base of the bar.

I might have been there the day those were taken - a couple of my friends are in the crowd, and I've done several Good Friday's there.

The Ivanhoe sounds like something we would love to see. Friday will not work for us, we have to go the pre game stuff near the ball park before the Brewers Tigers game. :{

We are thinking of coming back for the Jazz festival in September as we have a a short lay off during that time. Maybe then.

i will save the post in my folder
