    Be careful if you park on the roof of Cobo. Panhandles usually stop vehicles at the bottom of the ramp and try to collect the parking fee because the parking fee is collected at the booth on top of the roof.

    I like Cobo Hall roof because you can take the elevator to the main floor. If the weather is bad, I think it is the best place. Any where the people mover stop near a parking are is good because the people move stops at Cobo.

    I'm heading there on the Thursday (Feb 16) with a couple of other boaters. It doesn't open until 3PM - that seems odd...
