Absolute LOVE!!! If you're nerdy, or not, I can guarantee you'll LOVE this place. I had a grand time and pretty sure the other tipsy people there did too... considering that someone pulled the fire alarm and ended the night early. So, going through the CAS can be pretty tricky, because if you want to see everything, you have to plan out accordingly. Here are my tips and what I did. - get there by 5:30. I mean it! There was already a line when I got there. And surprisingly, there were lots of VIP members too, so they get to cut in front of you. - SAVE $2/person with THIS coupon!! http://www.citypass.co... - parking is $12. Uh... we parked on the street for FREE! Plus, it was a nice walk to the CAS since we got to see all these fountains, the de Young, etc. - Once they let you in, go DIRECTLY to the Planetarium! You gotta claim your tickets. The worker said the 6:30 showing is the coolest. - Once you got your ticket, you have ~15 minutes to gather resources! Like the map and explore a little bit... - Don't buy your drinks until after the Planetarium. No food/drinks allowed inside. And the planetarium can make you a little dizzy for a moment and there's seriously no exit route when you're in there, unless you want to go through an obstacle course of people's legs. - Sit towards the middle for the best view in the Planetarium. - After the 6:30 showing, go straight to the Rainforest! They let the last group of people in at 7:30. - Bring a jacket, and wear short sleeves or whatever underneath. It gets really sticky/humid inside the Rainforest, of course. - Bring a camera, to take whimsical pictures with the jellyfish and other exotic animals. - Ladies, I wouldn't recommend wearing heels... So the day I came there was a TON of people. Is this normal??! We had to wait for people to clear out at practically each exhibition... But for $10, I think it was worth the wait (and plus, no fussy kids around!). I actually didn't buy anything to drink because they were pretty pricy and small portions, but I DID do a little free wine tasting event there. Mehhh that was kind of a waste of time because the line for that was SO LONG. Took forever, and there were many jerks trying to cut. We were finally at the last station to taste test the good wine when someone triggered the fire alarm! I guess someone was having a jolly time... Despite ending the ~20 minutes early, I still had a LOT of fun!! I really want to come back again... hopefully with less people and explore a bit more. I missed out on the penguins :( We were gonna go there right after we taste test the wine but we were all sent outside just in case there really was a fire. Sucks for the people who did the coat checking... it was FREEZING that day. Overall, really fun experience with cool music playing the background. Such an enjoyable atmosphere... haha I feel so grownup. I'm glad my 100th review is the CAS... very fitting! I guess the CAS was so hot that the fire alarm went off! ;)

Love this club! Mark- the guy I emailed about getting bottle service set up was extremely helpful!!! you're awesome! We got 2 1000ml bottles of Ciroc, 12 guests in free, unlimited amounts of chasers, tacos, fruit platter, berry fondue, and a table at the balcony overlooking the stage.. for $600 after tips.. honestly, not bad.. They had go-go dancers.. which honestly were like choreographed music video so we were in awe watching all the performances. Plus one of the crews from the TV Show ABDC were there, the double jointed crew. Great atmosphere, attractive people, great entertainment, great bottle service... definitely well worth it.

Wow, I have lived across the street from this place for four months, and in that time my wife and I have probably spent over two thousand dollars there. Not that the food is very good, it's just close and easy. I like thai and beer, and she likes sushi, so we often settle on this place. Tonight, either the manager or owner was such a fucking dickhead, I will never go there again. I'm not going to get into the minutiae of the situation, but suffice to someone who works in the service industry - in the city of Detroit, no less - shouldn't be a condescending fucker. Don't bother with this place, it'll be closed any day. Their sushi sucks, their thai is salty, and they don't know how to treat their dwindling customer base. Eat a dick, Oslo.
