On Saturday Mandy and I went on a romantic date, running all over Detroit, taking photos for a travel blog post I’m working on. We stopped at a bunch of old faves and found a few new places we’ll have to go back and visit. Per usual by the end I was all teary-eyed over how much I love this city. There is a hostel now, right near the train station and the best barbecue in town. So if you want to come for a visit I’d be happy to show you around!
We had lunch at an artisan deli called Mudgies, which I’ve heard rave reviews from multiple people. It’s hidden on the edge of Corktown next to a cute little park. Most of their produce is locally sourced and they had a bunch of delicious sounding veggie sandwiches and McClure’s dill chips (!!!), so I’m definitely going back.
Of course we stopped at the train station. It’s rare that I’m driving past during the day and there were only a few other people there taking photos. I don’t care if it’s “ruin porn,” it’s still my favorite building in the city. Magestic and creepy at the same time.
I’ll be posting about a few other places we stopped by in the next couple weeks. We’re starting a list of places to visit, so except more Detroit love in the future!
