ou've been seeing too
many monster movies
if you were in
downtown Detroit and
thought that was King Kong
or whatever climbing up the
Omni International Hotel.
It was just good ol' Louie, a
90-foot inflatable crab, claw-
ing his way upwards to kick
off Omni's CrabFest for afi-
cionados of the seafood
delicacies now being featured
in its 333 East restaurant.
Much of the menu available
through July. 31 takes in
many popular crab recipes
from Boston's noted Omni-
Parker House, one of the city's
oldest and finest-regarded
restaurants.
The Omni International
Hotel here with its 254 guest
rooms, including 17 suites,
has received AAA Four-
Diamond awards for quality
and service in every one of its
short six-year existence .. .
Only 10 hotels in Michigan
have been given this award.
Hear tell that the real
"Louie The Crab" may soon
be visiting Omni to oversee
things at its CrabFest . . . If
so, the Omni folks better
make certain he stays out of
the kitchen . . . Sure wouldn't
want him jumping into a pot
for a swim . . . especially if it's
boiling-water ---- --------
CONGRATS . . . to Dr.
Stanley Levy . . . on his
birthday.
He was recent recipient of
the Dr. Max Beitman Award
for health professionals in the
metro Detroit Jewish com-
munity . . . bestowed by the
Jewish Home for Aged board
of directors.
The award was established
in 1983 and is presented
when the occasion arises that
a person gives meritorious
and outstanding service to
the Home . . . This is not a set
annual award . . . Honorees in
past years were Dr. Davis
Benson, Dr. Ronald Trunsky,
Dr. L. Hudson Rosenthal and
Dr. Bertrand Jacobs.

Rangers game . . . Bruce
Lyons, first vice president of
Manufacturers Bank, had
given Mark four bank tickets
that turned out to be up in
the stands in deep, deep left
field where we sat with
Martians.
Was at least a first . . . the
furthest we've ever sat to
watch the home team . . . The
seats were so far even
binoculars would have gotten
eye strain.

street
map of the sector, with

within walking distance .. .
