Parking = free at eastern market. Little bit off walk (10-15 mins)

Eats = new Parthenon (Greek food, get the pastitso)

Tail gating = unless you want to pay a bunch for parking ($20+) and still walk about 10 mins, you'd be better off at eastern market

??park for free at the eastern market?? I thought you needed to pay or you would get towed out without a ticket on your dash????

Pay $20+ and still walk 10min??? I always park on adams street right by commerica park and walk 200 yrds or so. Ya over $20 but worth it to me, cannot walk real far with my knees + all the beverages I consume before hand.

That puts you in the same boat with Sly. And I once seen him walk from the Eastern Market. LOL.

I've parked at eastern market about 50 times for tigers and lions games and passed many cops, never paid a dime, never gotten towed. Also, never saw any signs for pay parking in any lot I've parked in.

FYI, 400 yards is roughly 1/3 mile, so $20 for 1/3 mile walk (a few blocks) is not uncommon. If you can find cheaper, it's likely not a secure lot.
