Matt and I often go out for dinner ‘dates’ around the Royal Oak area we live in, but to make a reservation downtown Detroit a week before and buy tickets for a show at a beautiful theater?? This was a special occasion.
First things up, we went to Republic, for dinner. I have been meaning to go there for over a year, but every time the opportunity came up I was not able to get a reservation. I must have lucked out! It was a foodie’s dream. So flavorful and I wanted to order everything on the menu. The restaurant was buzzing, but not overcrowded and although I was not able to partake in the cocktails……Matt seemed to enjoy his.
After that we drove over to the Fox Theater to see: Straight No Chaser. They are an AMAZING a cappella group that were doing a holiday show and we scored tickets! The Fox is also one of my favorite places in Detroit. It is a historic theater built in 1928. Walking in there is like taking a step back in time…..and decorated for the holidays? Makes my heart happy. People were in such a festive mood, and the show was wonderful.
We had a wonderful date night in Detroit and once we spend time downtown, we always ask ourselves why don’t we come down here more often? It’s only twenty minutes without traffic. We will be back!
