Some of my favorite . . .
Mudgie's || aka the sandwich shop of all sandwich shops. Name an ingredient and they have it on a sandwich. Okay, that's a lie, but many of their sandwiches are so unique that I would have never come up with them on my own. I've only eaten here once, but I definitely want to go back and try the dozens of other sandwiches that sounded so, so delicious. The amazing food + the small, hipster-ish atmosphere makes for the Best Deli five years running.
I wish that I could say more about this place, but it's seriously so, so cool and you need to add it to your Detroit bucket list (and then promptly get to crossing that off!).
Also, I am not a food photographer, so just trust me when I tell you that something tasted good.
|The Kenna! Well, I think it is. Whatever this masterpiece was, my tastebuds certainly enjoyed it!|
Slows || You may have heard of this one. Even though it's not very old, Slows BBQ is making a huge impression all over the country. I wrote a more detailed post on Slows about a year ago, but here's a basic rundown: The building is really cool, the service is supah speedy, you should not step out of the restaurant without trying the mac&cheese (you'll
|Yum. Pure yum.|
|We're not calling this a mess. It's modern art.|
|What the Fox looks like from the stage! I was able to take a tour last Christmas and seeing all the signatures of everyone who has ever preformed there on the walls backstage was pretty darn cool.|
Thanksgiving in Detroit || For the past three years I've spent at least part of my Turkey Day in the D. From attending my first Lions game on Thanksgiving in 2012, to running in the Turkey Trot 10K in 2013, and watching the parade with my family last year, I would say that I have fully experienced a Detroit Thanksgiving. Spending time downtown on the holiday has quickly become one of my favorite traditions and I look forward to hopefully running up and down Woodward for the 10K again next year.
|Being sidelined for this year's Turkey Trot was hard, but getting to cheer on and high-five thousands of people breaking a sweat wasn't bad.|
|Oh, well, hey there, Big Sean! Fancy seeing you here!|
Detroit Sports || There's a reason that Detroit is ranked the #1 sports city. Detroiters love Detroit sports, and that is a fact. Take the Lions, for example. Maybe one of these days a Super Bowl winning team will come from Detroit, but in the meantime, Lions fans will keep on cheering, even when their beloved team comes out 0-16. Between the Tigers (baseball), Red Wings (hockey), Lions (football), Pistons (basketball, even though this team isn't located directly in Detroit.) and the Indy 500 track, the Detroit sport experience is unbeatable.
Sorry, this picture section is biased because the Red Wings have a huge place in my heart followed distantly by the Tigers.
|Joe Louis Arena is one of the oldest stadiums in the NHL and is going to be replaced in the next few years by a brand spankin' new arena. Although I'm sad that JLA is going, the new development is huge for Detroit!|
Happy 313 Day, everyone! Show Detroit a little love and head into the city to try some new things out.
