Too bad the Casino won't be finished then.

Those are pretty far away. I know they have Burger King out there but what is there to do?

Actually, there a a number of good restaurants at Levis, not to mention that you are only 10 minutes from Bowling Green, if they wanted to vist a very nice college town with some good nightlife and restaurants! 03-wink

Findlay?

Levis does have several good restaurants including Poco Piatis, Biaggio's (sp?) and the Japanese place along with the Cajun restaurant that has the comedy club attached. Good food there and we've seen some good acts at the comedy club. Can't think of the name right now-maybe Catfish Blue? There's also a number of good restaurants in Perrysburg downtown, a great Farmer's market there on Thursday that is sort of an event in itself, some nice historical sites like Fort Meig's and Perry's Landing (not where I'd go if I were 29 and on a trip with my wife but still...) and you are still only twenty minutes from the Glass Bowl.

The hilton garden inn at Levis Commons would probably be one of the "nicer" areas to stay. It's about 20-25 minutes away from the stadium. Good restaurants, and Fat Fish Blue is there which has a good comedy club and live music. Shopping at Levis Commons is okay, better shopping at Fallen Timbers about 10 minutes away. Not much other than that though to do.

The hotel on Secor will get you much closer to the true Toledo experience. You've got Arnie's, Uncle John's Pancake house, campus is very close. I'm also a fan of The Bunker if you want a nice local bar and normally pretty good live music.

Just a general question...

Will "Gradkowski's" be good to go by the fall?

GO ROCKETS.

RE: Visiting UNH Fan Questions
I would think if flying in/out of Detroit and being here a pretty short time they probably would want to hang out more toward the campus/downtown area. There are plenty of good places to eat at that end of town, and there are some great spots downtown as well. Does John Wesley still have a place downtown? I haven't been down there in a while, so I don't know.

UNHWildcats05, maybe tell us what kinds of places you would be interested in and we can focus our suggestions a little better for you.

Thank you everyone for your input! Seeing as how we are in Toledo for such a short amount of time, we would like to focus on near campus and downtown. Actually, but for the game and seeing the campus pre/post game, we will probably spend most of our time downtown.

For food, we would like to try any of the local specialties or establishments that are special to the people of Toledo. We are game for trying any type of food. It looks like Tony Packo's and the Beirut are favorites as they were mentioned by multiple people. Also the Docks on the East side looked interesting; however, are they still open? I came across an article about them being sold??

As for nightlife, I think we are going to end up staying right downtown (Crown Plaza or Park Inn), so information on any bars/pubs/micro breweries within walking distance of those hotels would be super. Slightly interested in club type places, but mostly good bars/pubs. We don't really want to get into driving somewhere as once we go out for the night, we don't want to have to think about driving anywhere...

Thanks again for your help!

RE: Visiting UNH Fan Questions
I prefer Crowne Plaza hotel
Nicer rooms.

Park Inn would be a slightly better bet for proximity to nightlife.
nearby hotspots include

Blarney Irish Pub
Pizza Papalis
Table 44 (pretty popular right now)
these 3 all on same corner and 1 block from Park Inn

Jed's Downtown
Spaghetti Warehouse
Jed's Downtown
Spike and Muddy's
Tony Packo's downtown
Home Slice Pizza
Bronze Boar
these 7 near each other on opposite side of ballpark from the 3 above, all walking distance

Manhattan's is particularly popular these days but not walking distance from hotel
Mano's Greek restaurant (near Manhattan's)
Wesley's (also near manhattan's)

The Docks restaurants. 4 riverfront restaurants. Good option and all should be operating by september - currently some change in the ownership there

The Docks are being sold but some restaurants are still open. If you want to dine on the River the Oliver House complex is another option- several restaraunts/bars in one old restored hotel on the west side of the River, just off Summit Street. Range of food and price options as well-ate their a few weeks back and it was still pretty good.

http://theoliverhousetoledo.com/

They don't have the al fresco options that the Docks has but the Docks does seem to be in flux so who knows what will happen there. Again if you are downtown the Art Museum is absolutley spectacular- see both the main building and the Glass House (as opposed to the Glass Bowl- you'll see plenty of that during gametime) across Monroe Street. There is truly something for everyone at the Museum.

Docks should be in full operation by then.

The Maumee Bay Brewery, Rockwells is another decent option as mentioned above.
