Re: “Berkley Front

Lest ye forget the truth of the past, it was DAVID E. DAVIS and THOMAS D. ALLEN who opened the BFL. Their motto (and best selling t-shirt) was NO RICE-NO ICE....and important distinction that the ill mannered Sabina has thrown to the uneducated palates of the masses by allowing said lesser fare to be consumed in those once hallowed (and far more entertaining)halls. Originally a proper Beer Garden, it is now just a bar....a good bar, but with the death of Tom and the permanent slandering Dave Davis (the man who made ALL OF IT HAPPEN - and also the man who built it over 8 months time in 1994), the place lacks the credibility this piece assigns it. The BFL was once one of kind, they served over 1.2 million dollars in $4 pints the first year but was stymied in the one attempt to expand and remodel to the east (where a horrible sports bar now resides). But BEER in of itself, is a wonderful thing, and no one can knock their support of it - short of not allowing SCOTT KING and MILK IT PRODUCTIONS (Scott being their earliest bartender/manager and now a very reputable brewer) onto their rather snob oriented taps (while still serving Bud -SHAME-). Additionally, and finally - please note that Dave and Tom styled the BFL after the greatest beer bar in the country - THE TORONADO in San Francisco as designed by David Keene.

Re: “Bistro 82 & Sabrage

Sabrage is the most disgusting place on the planet. The bouncers are abusive and very aggressive. The bouncer stirling harasses girls and kicks them out when he doesn't get attention. There's constantly people smoking pot in the patio. Never going back there!

Re: “Lena

I visited Lena about four weeks ago. The atmosphere was great as my wife an I had fine dining outside net to Main St. Ann Arbor people are great! The scallops were fabulous. My wife had a veggie sandwich with large Portobello mushroom portion. The presentation was outstanding. The drinks were strong and well portioned. We will definitely return

Re: “526 Main

Fun place, but they allow a bathroom attendant in the men's room only. When I chose to use the sink he hadn't emptied the soap from, I got kicked out of the bar. Who is more important, the customer dropping a $100 bar tab, or the bathroom attendant? To 526 Main, it's the bathroom attendant. Seems silly.

Re: “Drink Me Out to the Ball Game

Just making sure everyone knows everything available at the park. Used to be those were the only sorts of beers you could get. Even after Comerica Park opened, craft beer and expanded beer didn't appear until relatively recently from what we understand. Give the people what they want! ( :

Re: “Drink Me Out to the Ball Game

Could have save a lot of space by editing out everything from Miller Lite to Amstel Light

Re: “Midtown Grill & Bar

Decided to go for happy hour and in reviewing menu for half off
appetizers, oysters Rockefeller at $1.50 each. Regular menu pricing is $9.99 for six. Correct happy hour price should be approx.
$5.00 for the oysters Rockefeller. Waitress mentioned their working on the half off appetizer menu, so buyer beware. Plus oysters presented a non-fresh odor....

Re: “Small's

Every venue could take a lesson from Smalls. Ticket sales to customer service.

Re: “The Five Things You Need to Put in Your Mouth

I agree with everything you said, but I would recommend Kuhnhenn's DRIPA. Not only does that thing continue to win awards, but every time I go there, despite promising myself that I will order different beers I haven't tried, I end up throwing back a couple of those bad boys. Otherwise, perfect list...
