Hi, 

 

Long time reader on this forum and finally decided to join, sorry if this in the wrong section.  Anyway, I'm doing a road trip from Edmonton to Detroit for game 4, and was just looking for some advice on where to watch other games while on the road and while in Detroit.  It's a long drive and don't want to miss the other games so I was wondering whether anyone would know if the series would be televised in other states (North Dakota, Minnesota, etc.) as I drive down.  Any other advice on what to do or see while in Detroit would also be greatly appreciated. 

 

Thanks,

ABwingsfan13

Use the search function for "first trip to JLA" and "first trip to detroit".

 

There are numerous threads about where to park and where to stay and where to eat.

 

HAVE FUN!!!

I always like to park next to Fox and Hockeytown cafe. It was so nice to hitch a ride on the free shuttle's and after the game grab a burger at Hockeytown Cafe.

Most Buffalo Wild Wings restaurants I've been to have Center Ice and while I lived in Iowa and Indiana I could always watch the games there. The food is kind of expensive though, especially if you have some beers to go along with it. Aside from that I believe they'll play most games on NBC Sports and I think Sunday's game in on NBC, so if you're at a hotel then odds are you'll have the channels. 

 

I think if you have a smartphone then you can get the TuneIn radio app and listen to the games on 97.1 the Ticket if all else fails.

Hockeytown Cafe is definitely worth going to, just to check out the memorabilia they have on display. Standard food in downtown Detroit for me would be Slow's BBQ on Michigan Ave. Amazing bbq.

It wouldn't help you on the drive down, but when I go to games in Detroit I usually stay in Windsor.

 

Its a very cheap and fast shuttle bus you get at the greyhound station that drops you right at the arena and any of the bars in Windsor will have every game available through the various Canadian networks.

 

Coming from Edmonton though you'll be coming from the opposite direction and staying in Windsor probably isn't as beneficial for you.

I am a lot closer (Kitchener, On). It is a tradition to go to Pizza Papalis in Greektown (downtown Detroit) before each game.

Before this injury, I could never play violin at all. I must break the other hand so I can play guitar.'" –Pavel Datsuk on breaking his hand
