choice.

high prices.

kins and fresh flowers ... The Pub
oyster bar sector has seating for
70 at lunch and dinner.
The oyster bar, where you can
watch chefs cook, was the first
one in Michigan ... opened by Ben
in 1971 ... It now has a new cop-
per top to replace the former
counter top in front of which are
seven comfortable seats.
Of course the famous New
York Stock Exchange board is
still there with its running lights
... No amount of renovations
could ever do away with this
standby.
Entertainment is six nights a
week with five different groups
rotated during the weeks ... On
Monday evenings, the Original
Hits are from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
as they have been for 15 years ...
Tuesday through Saturday is
blues nights with performers like
Mimi Harris, 1995 blues vocal-
ist of the year, and others.
In 1971, Ben Kasle brought in
Hank Gluckman of Gluckman
Designs to redo the place ... In
May of 1995, Hank Gluckman
returned again for Kevin's re-
designing efforts, accompanied
by his son, Carey Gluckman.
Hank's second "new look" at
Fox & Hounds is of a distinctive
quality.
It includes framed pictures of
English hunt scenes and coun-
