Manny Harris to decide
NBA Draft status today

Junior Manny Harris will be
holding a press conference at 11
a.m. today to announce whether
or not he will forgo his senior
year at Michigan and declare for

the NBA Draft.
Rumors surfaced Friday about

CAMPUS NIGHTLIFE
New watering hole opens in South Campus

Attendees of the 13th annual Dance Marathon watch a performance by the Michigan Marching Band yesterday.

Packard Pub owner
says business was
strong during
first weekend
By LINDSAY KRAMER
Daily StaffReporter
Some students took a break
from the South University Ave-
nue bar scene to test out Packard
Pub, a new bar that opened this
weekend on the corner of Pack-
ard and State streets. The bar,
which is the only one in the stu-
dent-heavy South Campus neigh-

borhood, opened to long lines on
Friday night.
"We've been open two days,
and it's been a full house from
6 p.m. to 2 a.m.," Packard Pub
owner Kyle Miller said in an
interview yesterday.
Miller said the chance to lease
the pub's space fell into his lap
after a diner at his other restau-
rant, Buffalo Wings & Rings in
Chesterfield, Mich., told him
about the space.
Though Miller didn't officially
sign the lease until Oct. 1, 2009,
renovation had already started on
the space beginning in Septem-
ber. Before Packard Pub moved
in, Artisan Bistro, an organic

cafe, occupied the space.
Miller said the bar's early suc-
cess is partly due to its spot close
to students, but far away from
other bars, adding that one of the
most important aspects to start-
ing a business is "location, loca-
tion."
With maize and blue colored
walls and a mural of the Big
House, the sports bar gives stu-
dents the opportunity to watch
a variety of sporting events in a
spirited atmosphere. The bar also
features six cable boxes so own-
ers can air multiple college and
professional sports games at the
same time.

Participants raised
$425,762.48 in
event's 13th year
By CAITLIN HUSTON
Daily StaffReporter
Early Saturday morning, hun-
dreds of University students in the
Indoor Track Building posed in a
running stance, ready to go. As a
voice countdown reached zero, the
students were released and sprint-
ed toward the stage, jumping up
and touching a "Go Blue!" banner
as they ran underneath.
And the motion didn't stop for

the next 30 hours of the Universi-
ty's 13th annual Dance Marathon.
For the marathon, students
make a commitment to remain
on their feet for 30 hours to raise
money for children with illnesses
at the University's C.S. Mott Chil-
dren's Hospital and Beaumont
Hospital in Royal Oak, Mich.
Dance Marathon, which is one of
the largest student-run nonprofit
organizations on campus, divides
participants into teams that build
relationships throughout the year
with the families they are support-
ing.
Last year, the event raised
$388,134, which was used for pedi-
atric rehabilitation programs. Par-

ticipants this year surpassed last
year's fundraising mark, bringing
in a total of $425,762.48.
Participants have to raise at
least $300 to participate in the
event. That money is supplement-
ed by general donations and corpo-
rate sponsorships.
LSA sophomore Gaurang Garg,
who participated in the event, said
he was shocked and excited to
see such a high amount of money
raised atthis year's marathon.
"It really shows what people
can do when they put the benefit
of others above their own selves,"
Garg said.
At the beginning of the event,
