For our long Columbus Day weekend (MIT gives Monday and Tuesday off!), I went to Michigan. I flew out on Friday, landed at DTW around 4:30 and went to the Red Wings home opener at 7PM (Wings beat Ottawa 5-3 -Yay!). On saturday, I went back to one of my favorite restaurants out there, The Forest Grill, which is in a town called Birmingham (right by the Law Firm of Victoria - not kidding!) and then on Sunday, went to a cider mill for cider and donuts...

|Ambassador Bridge - Canada's on the left, Detroit Rock City is on the right|
|GM's Headquarters, the Renaissance Center or RenCen for short :-)|
All in all, an AWESOME weekend, but one that felt much shorter than it actually was. I flew back Tuesday morning and was doing reading for class while waiting to board the plane. Seems like you're either in work or fun mode, there isn't much in between and you've got to maximize both.
