It's been the rule for 2 seasons now. It's posted on their website. They even handed out bags at the home opener the last 2 years because of it. They really should post it right outside the arena somewhere though. They were pretty lax about it last year, but I saw several women this year get sent back to their car.
Glad you had a good time!
I didn't know that at all! I should have checked a while ago. Do you know why they have those rules?
Although it was unfortunate that your friends couldn't get in because of her purse, they should have a baggage check or something imo. perhaps, you should give us pointers on what to do, places to visit, etc if it's their first time to the D. I know I'd appreciate that
I agree on the baggage check. Just doesn't make sense. I was just over the college town kinda. I was in Greektown ( lots of good places to eat there, there is this pizza place that is really good and lots of good bars in midtown also) There is this greekplace that is really good also. And Kony's, I guess thats one of Detroit's famous food? Correct me if I'm wrong Detroit residents.
And you're welcome for beating the Panthers. Sorry, we couldn't beat them in regulation;)
