You would think Detroit would already have a bar since most MLB teams already have them to sell 15 dollar one shot gin and tonics.

When I was doing training in Pontiac I went to downtown Detroit, and thought everyplace had bars... on their windows. I also have to admit that I am surprised that they have not had anything other than beer available there (will date myself, because the last game I saw there was in the outfield bleachers of the old Tiger stadium).

yeah it is surprising even in the beer capital of Milwaukee with a stadium named after a beer company they already had a bar in it (and Lambeau too).

Ah, the time honored debate between making millions, or following your Southern Baptist, Bible Belt roots. I mean, the teetotalers have won out for decades, has the public opinion finally swung the other way as with so many other social issues? I'd be curious to see which schools come down on which side of the debate and how many sternly written letters arrive on the presidents' desks of the schools who vote for drinking.

I might just need a bourbon while I ponder some more... 8)

Around here, the joke is that the difference between a Baptist and a Methodist is that the Methodist will say hi to you at the liquor store. :mrgreen:

If by "around here", you mean pretty much the entire Southeast (because I heard that in multiple cities in the Southeastern Bible Belt). :mrgreen:

I heard the same joke for years in Jackson. I will also say that I've been drunk in multiple SEC stadiums that did not sell alcohol. The flask and outside booze was cheaper than beer, anyway. :mrgreen:

Also, Windy, AO Sig is in Tennessee. That's what's meant by "around here."

Which I thought was a nonsequitor because we are obviously talking about Tiger Stadium the home of the Detroit Tigers. That is the inference from the text of the OP
