Cool! Thanks for the instructions. In terms of eating places - can I get to Slyman's from the hotel sans car?

Thanks, rockandroller. I did the Priceline thing for the hotel, so I'm thinking that rent car is the way to go. Will report back after doing some research. The 13 yr old's favorite band is the Grateful Dead, so we are hopeful.

Ok - I am taking my 13 yr old to the Hall of Fame this weekend, and need a little guidance. Please excuse if some of this is outside the "scope," but some advice from locals is always a good thing.

1. Car - We are staying at the Intercontinental, which is supposed to be walking distance from the Hall, and I have made a reservation for a car, but if I can avoid the hassle, it'd be good. How tough is it to get to downtown from the airport? Are there decent restaurants within walking distance, or should I just bite the bullet on the car?

2. Friday Dinner - Friday night, we were going to try and do a "nicer" dinner. We watch Food tv all the time, so Lucy (daughter) knows who Symon is, and is a pretty good eater, but the menu at Lola looks too "adult" for her. Any other suggestions?

3. Saturday/SundayLunch - I thought about going to one of the deli places I read about on here, but didn't know about car. If I skip the car, is there another quick (but good) alternative that we can check out without straying too far from the Hall?

4. Saturday Dinner - I need another dinner option for Saturday. Thought we'd do something a bit more casual. Pizza is good, but I can get good pizza in Houston.

Thanks in advance for the input - Lucy and I appreciate it.
