it's been over a month

Aack! I never neglect my blog for this long. So, I'm going to take the next little bit to try and get caught up from the last month. I'll do it in bits and piece all day. So I apologize in advance if the email updates fill up in inbox today!

First, I want to tell you about an event that my husband and I attend yearly. Detroit Uncorked is a premium wine tasting event with over 400 varieties of wine, light hors d'oeuvers, local entertainment and silent auction. This year it is Friday, September 19th. Tickets are already on sale and they generally do sell out.

We stay overnight in Downtown Detroit at The Inn on Ferry Street and I just can't say enough good things about this hotel. It is actually four restored homes and the service, shuttle van, and great breakfast make it such a special time.

Located in the East Ferry Street Historic District of Midtown Detroit, The Inn On Ferry Street sets the standard for elegant guest quarters and dedicated service. Just steps from the state's finest museums, acclaimed Detroit Medical Center and Wayne State University, the Inn is a relaxing change of pace from the standard business hotel. Four restored Victorian homes and two carriage houses abound in sophisticated luxury. The Inn evokes a strong sense of history that provides the perfect atmosphere for weddings, receptions and other social events. Whether you visit for a weekend, conduct a business meeting, or rent an entire house for a special occasion The Inn On Ferry Street is aptly accommodating. Don't forget to take our complimentary shuttle to theatres, stadiums, and all downtown restaurants located a mere 1.5 miles from the Inn.

I know there's been a lot of bad press about Detroit these past months, but we truly enjoy Detroit and this event is a great excuse to support our city. Here's a short clip about Detroit Uncorked. Maybe I'll see you there!
