I had a rather interesting Sunday in Ypsilanti and Detroit yesterday, so I thought I might pop in to tell you about it.
Five Cent Femme planned out an adventurous day for J&M Corp (how we used to refer to ourselves at the young and naïve age of 16).
First stop: Ypsi.
I had the specialty burger of the day which was a Sacre Bleu burger with bleu (I prefer blue..) cheese, bacon, raw onion, lettuce, and tomato. I subbed sweet potato fries for the cajun fries. NOM. Amazing, as always. Five Cent Femme ordered the huz’s BBQ Slaw Burger.
At 1:00 PM, we headed over to Woodruff’s for “Bitchy Bingo”! What is “Bitchy Bingo” you ask!?
I asked too.
It is, in fact, an event held twice monthly at Woodruffs which involves games of Bingo hosted by the glamorous members of Boylesque – Chanel Hunter and Jadein Black. It was a riot, and Chanel and Jadein were fabulous hosts and bingo callers.
Brunch and Drag Queen-hosted Bingo would not be complete without a Bloody Mary, or in this case “BLOOD.”
Definitely a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Recommended! I hope to go again.
Next stop: The D!
Passing the GM RenCen…
We visited Detroit for the final day of the North American International Auto Show.
Ahh… a girl can dream.
There was a large turnout.
The whole day we were just waiting for something bad to happen – but it never really did. (I have a track record of having something scary happening every time I go to Detroit, for instance, running out of antifreeze in da ghetto hood [which, in retrospect, is hardly even close to the worst thing that could happen in Detroit]). The whole experience was remarkably smooth, from finding Cobo, parking, taking a shuttle from the structure, purchasing tickets, getting around, and returning safely back to our cars. Easy peasy. We felt like real-life adults.
The entire time Five Cent Femme was driving around Detroit, I was begging her to PLEASE not follow the “Bridge to Canada” signs and accidentally take us to Canada. (She tends to do such things on a regular basis…)
Fortunately, Windsor, Ontario remained safely on the other side of the river. We had a nice view of Caesars in Windsor.
RenCen at night. It was snowing pretty hard when we left.
And our drive home pretty much looked like this.
Awesomely, when I arrived home, I had this amazing plate of food waiting for me, prepared by the huz.
Can you say ravenous hunger? I think I threatened to attack that chicken breast “zombie style.” And I basically did.
I love the mitten!
