    I think the snow will hold off tonight until later if anyone is concerned about that. The plan is to walk to the Rochester Mills brewery after. The building was built in the 1800's and had had a long interesting history.

    Looking for a consensus on where to go after: Rochester Mills Brewery is in the 1800's Western Knitting Mills building with lots of room and good craft beers even if they are $5 a glass. The Paint Creek Tavern (aka Paint Creek Yacht Club) is more rustic with a good beer selection. O'Connor's is an Irish Pub with an authentic bar and exposed bricks. What sounds good?

    While driving through downtown be sure to note the wood carved figures in front of Kruse and Muer (they used to stand over the entrance of The Brass Rail burlesque in downtown Detroit.)

      Even though I'm not a fan of the beer at Rochester Mills, prefer their cider, I agree with Jim, Paint Creek Tavern is the smallest, and O Conners does handle big crowds especially w their bike night, but remember they plan for that one. Recommend Rochester Mills for a group this size.

      Good point Donna. The best thing the Mills has going for it is the size and history factor. Looks like that is where we will go.

    Do you think we could talk the library into allowing us to byob???

    January 24, 2013

    • David G.

      Unfortunately no. Tailgating is allowed and bars are in very close proximity for afterwards.

    wish I could, but I'm afraid drinking on a 'school night' doesn't work for me.

    I love Google maps, and how they miss the mark most times. The library parking lot is to the right and the library to the right of that. They are showing the Kiwanas park :-)
