Travelogue: Detroit, MI

November 1, 2011 Travel

I love when guests from out-of-town come to visit. It’s a great opportunity to show off things and places that are unique to our state and region. This past week, Dharma’s dad and brother paid us a visit. Some of the places we took our guests included the Dexter Cider Mill, the Nichols Arboretum, Joe Louis Arena for a Detroit Red Wings hockey game, and El Barzon for dinner.

Additionally, we visited the Cadieux Cafe in Detroit for a few games of feather bowling. Yes, you heard that right, feather bowling. Once a speakeasy, the bar is most famous for being the only place in the U.S. where you can still play feather bowling. This game, which originated in Flanders, Belgium, is similar to bocce ball and horseshoes. In short, it’s big fun (yes, there’s even a league!). In addition to feather bowling, the Cadieux Cafe has fantastic mussels (so I’m told) and a decent selection of Belgian beers. Here are some pictures from our trip.
