    Looking for suggestions on places to dine near and around the Great Lakes Grand.

    I bet Tom will know, or does someone else have a favorite dinning spot.

    Thanks for Sharing,

    Gunnerx

    Well, "dine" means different things to different folks, but the Mason Jar on W. Maple in Mason is a favorite of mine--good food, large portions, lots of TV's...did I mention lots of beer?

    The Cayenne Grill and Darb's are also popular Mason eateries.

    Mike's Firehouse Grill on S. Jefferson is a little more upscale: http://woz.commtechlab.msu.edu/courses/346fa03/berger/restaurant/

    Take US 127 North to I-96, go west on 96 to the Cedar street exit. Texas Roadhouse for steaks, Hooters for ...., also, another steakhouse on Cedar street. It's not far (closer than Jackson).

    Wow, situated between Lansing to the North and Jackson to the South, along with Masons quaint haunts. It doesn't get any better than this!!!

    Jeff: I am sure we will make the gizzard run again this shoot. Through much intense testing, we (i.e.dinky, Larry P. and the gang) have found that an evening gizzard routine helps a shooters POI on singles targets. We have accumulated much data to prove and I will assemble in graph form for your review. See ya there, Roger

    P.S. Please keep this phenomenon to yourself-we don't want everyone to know our secrets! You may want to delete the secret location in your post above...

    Roger; The phenom is the point of gas release when calling for your bird. It has a direct coralation to keeping your head on the wood. By the way you would have loved the US OPEN.

    There's a shopping center east of the campus with one of the best Indian restaurants I've found, London included. I always go at least twice and with a Sushi bar across the parking lot and the converted fire station right in Mason you should never go hungry at the GLG!

    Hey Neil,

    Would that be American Indian or Asian Indian?

    Carl Chadwell is also on to a Fine Dinning spot, but he is not Talking, yet.

    Ah, to locate a Clean Chinese establishment, non buffet type.

    Gunner -

    I can hook you up with the Chinese place. I stay up in Lansing on Saginaw at I-96. Heading east from I-96 on Saginaw, before you get to the mall, on the north side of the street there is a really good chinese place. Not a buffet, it's in a brand new building and it's good. I have no idea the name, ran across it when I was up there last year.

    The new big mall on Lake Lansing road has lots of good places to eat. It is about ten miles north of the shoot. The Fish Market is very good and the Italian place right next to it (I forget the name of it). The mall is on the northwest corner of US127 and Lake Lansing Rd.

    You're right, the new Eastwood Towne Center has 14 places listed under "Dining and Cafes". It's actually about 18 miles due north of the MTA grounds, just west of US-127 at Lake Lansing Rd.

    (There's construction on US-127, just south of Lake Lansing Rd. So far, it hasn't been a major issue, except occasionally at rush hour.)

    Thanks for the insight into Dinning during the Great Lakes Grand.

    I believe if I follow Neil, Scott, and Carl, it should lead to some exculsive
    eateries. Thanks for the culinary advice.
