Let's Go To: Detroit, Michigan

    

View from the hotel room.

If you read my previous post about my trip to Toronto, you know Detroit was my second stop to my birthday week. Toronto was completely new to me but Detroit happens to be a former home. I lived there a few years ago and to this day, consider myself an ambassador for Detroit, constantly working to change the image of the city. I can’t count how many people asked, “Detroit? For fun? Why?”. There’s no denying there are some dangerous areas around Detroit but what major city doesn’t? I certainly know that Los Angeles has some shady areas I would never even consider driving through, yet Los Angeles doesn’t have the stigma Detroit does.

Let's Go To: Toronto, Canada


If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you may have seen that I gifted myself a trip out to Toronto and Detroit for my birthday this year. Perhaps a little known fact about me is that I am an avid hockey fan, specifically the Detroit Red Wings. I lived in Detroit for a while (more on that on the Detroit post!) and became a huge, borderline obsessive fan. 

While I lived in Detroit, I had never taken the time to travel up to Toronto (no clue why) and since the Red Wings were playing in Toronto and then back home on the same weekend, I decided that was the perfect birthday plan.

L.A Locals Love: Opaque


Welcome to another 'L.A Locals Love..' where I feature exciting places to eat, explore and visit in the Greater Los Angeles area. Click here to see the series!

Last weekend, I had an exciting and interesting dining experience at Opaque in Santa Monica. Why was it interesting? Because you dine in the dark. Yes, in utter darkness.
