Long-time LGWer here.
I'm taking my dad and brother to the Joe March 6th and 7th. This will be our first ever Wings home game. We're making the journey from the east coast of Canada so it's a biggish sort of deal.
I've been doing a s***-load of research in planning for this trip.
I just thought, since I have great respect for a lot of you, if anyone had any suggestions based on personal experience about the following:
1. Where to stay: I'm looking at Greektown Casino, Holiday Inn Express, Westin Book, and Doubletree Lafayette.
2. Best pre-game and post-game hangs for food and beer that have easy flow and access to the people movers.
I have read all there is to read on Trip Advisor, etc. But I want to hear what the LGWs hardcore locals had to say.
Pretty sure I have the rest covered but any other tourist tips, dos and don't, etc would be aprreciated.
I'll pay you back in advice if any of you are ever planning to travel to Atlantic Canada (which is beautiful, by the way)
Mods, feel free to move this to where ever it should be.
