Detroit Riverwalk and Lunch at Eastern Market

Please read this carefully!

Meet time is 12pm sharp.

Meet location is RIVARD PLAZA, 1340 East Atwater, (Rivard & Atwater) (if you're familiar with this area, its the building with the carousel/cafe).  There is parking at this location!  Meet in the front of the building.  I have uploaded a picture of this building:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We will walk and take the Dequindre Cut to Eastern Market.  It is approximately 1.5-2 MILES EACH WAY(took us only 1/2 hr to walk this last time).  We will be walking at a fairly BRISK pace.  Please wear comfy shoes, such as athletic shoes!  I'm assuming we'll arrive there by 12:30pm, where we will most likely split up into smaller groups, choose a restaurant for lunch, then check out Eastern Market to see what they have for us to buy.

At 3:00 sharp, we'll be grouping up again on the corner of Russell & Chrysler Dr(Fisher), to begin our walk back.  If you are not there at 3:00, I will assume you have decided to walk back earlier or decided to stay longer and walk back by yourself.

Some great places down there for lunch are  Supino's Pizza, Vivio's Food & Spirits, among a few others.  Two others that are good but a bit further of a walk are Sala Thai, and Roma Cafe.  I put the link up for these at the bottom of this post.

I recommend you wear athletic shoes, bring a bottle of water with you, and if you plan to do some shopping, perhaps a backpack would be a good idea.  Dress for the weather!!!

**If bad weather is expected, I may cancel and reschedule later, please check back on here often**  If you can't make this one, don't worry, I'll be doing this one again.

    My pictures aren't that great, but I try. Will, you took some great pictures, thank you for posting them. We also had Jonathan Schechter join us, a freelance writer for the Oakland Press. If you can find his pictures on facebook or perhaps in a soon to be written article about the Dequindre Cut in the paper, you will be surprised how good his pictures are, he has a gift for art and beauty in his pictures.
