Date Night 10/27: Royal Oak

It’s Saturday night in the ROak: Time to take your girlfriend, boyfriend, or whathaveyou out for a night on the town. What to do, what to do? Well, how about these ideas? Of course, we’re always up for suggestions. Comment away!


A Royal Oak classic, with some of the best burgers in the world: The Red Coat Tavern.

Per Metromix:

“Known locally for phenomenal burgers and strong drinks, Redcoat delivers the goods with authority. Stacked, custom burgers of seemingly unrivaled beef are the signature dish of this British-inspired dining room with exposed beams and soothing lights.”

Drinks . . . and a Show

The biggest show in years is tonight so why not combine the two? The World Series! One of the original bars at the forefront of downtown’s revival was Woody’s so we’re picking this multi-story gem as THE spot to watch the game tonight.
