RE: Visiting UNH Fan Questions
Oliver House Micro Brew, I like but it is a bit of a hike from those hotels. (ooh ooh, before I forget, since we're in that area High Level Bridge area, San Marcos expanded AND looks like they're putting a place on Galena in the north end.)

The game will most likely be 8pm ish. There's not going to be any clubbing that I can see time for.

Schedule Time:

Early in to De'troit means Toledo about Lunch?

I-275 to I-75S to I-280 Right lane OVER the 280 bridge and take the first exit. Right to get to the ONLY Tony Packos. (shanghaiing the folks before you convince them to go downtown for food, lol)

Head back over the river to the hotel. That will leave late afternoon. Art Museum is only thing I can think of that would be fairly unique. A drive or walk through Old West End to see houses. Largest collection of Victorian Houses between the east coast and St Louis I believe.

gag, I'm thinking like a 50 year old. There has to be something for younger people to do in Toledo on an afternoon? Where do we hide the 20 year olds?

Then to the University? Campus is beautiful and we're not biased at all in the regard.

Any UNH people will probably be in the UT Alumni center tent, right?


The Next morning? Can't think of any MUST do's in the morning. To be honest, if it were me I'd shoot to Ann Arbor in the morning for breakfast and a look around then to the Airport.

My gosh, you mentioned microbrews and I had totally forgotten about Maumee Bay Brewing Company (the one mentioned above in Oliver house. It's only about 4 blocks or so from the Park Inn. I've eaten there a couple times and liked it, and they make some good beers. Good atmosphere.

I pinned this. I'll change the title after it's been up a few days for our guest.

RE: Visiting UNH Fan Questions
Why not start with the must see in Toledo - Tony Packo's. Head from there to the Docks - should still be some boats cruising the river - then cross the river to go downtown to any of the options mentioned above. I think Oliver House and the micro brewery are good choices. Isn't the Dirty Bird still open? That place would seem to be perfect for the 20 something crowd. I was there after one of the Mud Hen playoff games about 4 years ago and you could barely get in. Do that on Friday - and stay downtown - then check out and head closer to campus for Saturday activities.

My thoughts - but I haven't lived in Toledo for over 15 years.

RE: Visiting UNH Fan Questions
That would be a damper on my proposed itinerary. I guess I didn't even bother to think the game was anything other than a Saturday - forgetting it is Labor Day weekend...

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!

For lunch or after the game, as mentioned:
Tony Packos. The Front Street location is the original and most noted. I have not been to the one over near the baseball park, so I don't know what it's like.
Oliver House gives you a lot of choices.
Wesley's Bar and Grill is one I have not been to, so I can't comment on it.

For dinner The Beirut would be a great choice, and it's only minutes from the university. Check out the sauteed mushrooms. Mmmmmmmmm.....

The Dirty Bird is closed. It is now Jed's.

RE: Visiting UNH Fan Questions
I guess given the time they will be in Toledo - not really going to be able to do a whole lot except right before and for a few hours after the game on Thursday. Flying out of Detroit early afternoon on 9/2 doesn't leave much time other than breakfast and maybe a trip to the zoo or art museum. Game will probably not be over much before midnight.
