Upon arriving in the Midwest, Kraig and I drove to Zingerman’s to get a famous sandwich as seen in the movie The 5 Year Engagement. I have to admit that after driving around for an hour to find a parking spot, waiting in a long line to order a sandwich, and then waiting a substantial amount of additional time to get our sandwiches, I was a little disappointed in what I got. The sandwich was good, but I wouldn’t recommend going out of your way for this place. It’s worth checking out if the crowds are under control when you’re in the area.
The next day we got to explore some of Detroit. We went to Green Dot Stables for lunch. I found this place through internet stalking where Anthony Bourdain ate while he was in Detroit filming a show. The sliders, kale salad, fries, beers, and service were all awesome. Our waiter was super friendly and helpful with suggestions of places to check out as tourists with a few hours to spare before a wedding. We ended up viewing The Heidelberg Project which was a bittersweet experience.
After checking out The Heidelberg Project, we got ready for a BEAUTIFUL wedding. There was wonderful food, friendly people, jaw-dropping flowers, and a live band! We had a blast and we’re so happy we got to have this awesome experience.
