Tree Lighting Ceremony

Friday night Danny and I went to Campus Martius for the tree lighting ceremony.  I went a couple years ago with Granny and like everything else in this town, the changes were impressive.  There was more activity and definitely more people.  Seeing crowds in the city never gets old.  As much as I love Detroit, New York City is truly the pinnacle of metropolitan greatness. Consequently, I relish these moments of big city crowds.  I like to think of it as watching the ball drop in Times Square but with the convenience of easy bathroom accessibility and limited traffic on the way home.
A big change from a couple years ago was the food.  There were food trucks outside, including my favorite Beignet truck, that tempted me.  Cadillac Square was equipped with a large tent that had offerings from the best restaurants in town.  Danny and I immediately regretted going out to dinner because there were so many delicious treats.  Stuffed or not, I couldn’t pass up a lobster dog from Coach Insignia!  It was AMAZING and I want another one. The other fun part about the tent was the ample seating and fun dance music.

To be a bit hypocritical, as much as I love the busyness of New York, the crowded sidewalks are a hassle.  I fully expect Detroit to have crowded streets on a regular basis one day; therefore, I can’t help but enjoy the freedom of casually strolling Woodward Avenue on a Friday night.
