This weekend, we enjoyed the company of great friends visiting from Cincinnati. I love when friends and family come to visit because it gives me an excuse to be a tourist in my own town. I prepared dinner for all of us on Friday night - Butternut Squash Soup with Sage and Parmesan Croutons - and following the complete inhalation of the meal (we ate too late), we played a mostly friendly game of Settlers of Catan (congrats to Tara).
We got a late start on Saturday (we made a point to finish painting our paper mâché eggs), but that didn't stop us from completing an extensive walking tour of downtown Ann Arbor, Kerrytown, and the University. We hit up Zingerman's for lunch because let's face it, it isn't a trip to Ann Arbor without something from Zingerman's settling in your midsection. We stopped for coffee at Sweetwater's, walked through the Farmers Market, and then headed through downtown towards the University.
Saturday night we grabbed dinner at Jolly Pumpkin (love their Truffle Pizza and Chicken Nachos), and stopped in at The Last Word for a nightcap (nothing better than a Bubbles and Basil).
