I didn't think I'd make a blog post on this short trip because I didn't take any pictures with my camera. I snapped some quick pictures on my phone for personal memories, but I started this blog as a place to keep my memories, so I decided to make a post anyway!

Jerome's brother, our sister-in-law, Jerome and I visited Detroit back in early April to watch the Toronto Raptors play the Detroit Pistons. Detroit is about 3.5ish hours from Toronto, and it's a pretty chill drive. We didn't do anything too exciting other than eat a heck of a lot, shop, walk around the city, and watch the game. I didn't take too many pictures, but I'll still share if you care, ha.

Yummy places in Detroit:

*you can click the italicized names of the restaurant to check out their website

Pizza Papalis in Greektown.
Deep. Dish. Pizza. It takes about 45 minutes for the pizza, but guys, it's so worth the wait. I'm lactose intolerant (so badly that I think I could be allergic) but some things are worth the pain. This was one. 

The Hudson Cafe.
I didn't take pictures here because I don't usuallyyy take pictures of food, but this is a really good breakfast/brunch place. Oh, and they have red velvet pancakes.

Dessert Oasis Coffee Roasters.
This is a coffee shop that I picked. The second we walked in Jerome was like yup, you would pick this place. They're all about coffee, desserts and live music.

Bon Bon Bon.
If you love chocolate, this is the place for you. They have a lot of flavours to choose from, even vegan options, and they come wrapped in really cool packaging. I liked the matcha one the best.

Downtown Detroit has a lot of beautiful architecture and we kept having to stop to look up at buildings and take pictures. 

The Raptors game was a lot of fun, and that's coming from me. We sat behind the Raptor's bench, and we were so close that I could use portrait mode on the back of their heads haha. We had a poster and made it onto TV a couple times. I even got a double thumbs up from Demar Derozan when I was trying to get his attention with the poster. 

Detroit will always hold a special place in my heart because it was my grandma's hometown. It was really nice to be able to make fun memories with my new family.

What are some other States that we should visit?
