The morning started with a wonderful breakfast at the Parks and Rec Dinner
. Breakfast is served all day, and they did a great job on the building rehabilitation. Next stop is at Shinola
, the original location. They have made such a positive impact on the city and once you go, it’s easy to understand why people are so passionate about their products. There are many cute shops nearby too, perfect for some early holiday shopping. After walking around for a few hours, we head to the Eastern Market
area. Unfortunately it was closed while we were there, but it was fun to walk around. We weren’t really that hungry, but just had to stop for a slice at the famous Supino’s pizzeria
. We head back to the hotel to get ready for dinner. Pre-dinner drinks were at Queens Bar
, with some great kitschy tiki decorations and an extra game of cards- I won, obviously! And late-night food at Wright & Company
on the secret second floor above the John Varvatos building
. Detroit really has amazing food brought on by the creative vision of these passionate chefs. Make sure to bring your appetite! We take the scenic route home to view the Christmas lights and work off some of those calories.
