PARKING INFO: Most of us park at a free lot a few blocks from Robbie Fox's. The lot is at 5th and Ash. DIRECTIONS TO PARKING LOT: From University and Mill, go West on University and turn right at Ash. Take Ash to Fifth, turn left over the train tracks (you'll see the lot) turn right on the next little street to get to the lot entrance. DIRECTIONS TO ROBBIE FOX'S FROM LOT: walk east on Fifth, toward the lights of Mill Avenue. Turn right on Maple (you'll see huge apartment Towers called W6) then left on Sixth, which isn't marked but Robbie Fox's is visible from the intersection.
