    Call Dave and Buster and see if they will open one downtown.

    The Money Museum at NBD was nice, too.

    I remember that money museum at NBD (today Chase Tower). It was wonderful. Only time I had ever seen a $10,000, $5,000, $1,000 and $500 bills. NBD moved the museum to the Ren Cen after it opened in 1977.

    Then later the museum was closed and the priceless contents were sold at auction...
    damn that NBD Chairman Verne Istock... (no relation).

    Yup... they sold a priceless collection... I remember vividly staring a circa 1928 $10,000 bank note in the face... Salmon P. Chase, Lincoln's Secy of Treasury was on it. WOW!!
