I heard about Daryl's house on NPR today. Go check out some nice jam sessions. Cool way to find some new music.
Friday nights if nothing else is going on, we head to the Detroit Institute of Arts, have dinner there, see a movie, listen to some music, and catch an exhibit or two.
This week we saw a good movie Alamar about a Dad in Mexico showing his son what his life was like in a fishing village before the boy flew home to his mother in Rome. Breathtaking scenes of the coral reef and aquatic life.
The exhibit was prints of the fantastic throughout five hundred years and amazing. We loved it and their print gallery is so cozy and inviting.
But the icing on the cake of our evening was the cake we had for dessert. Made by Inn Season restaurant in Royal Oak Michigan and served by the Crystal Cafe at the Detroit Film Theater (to get the low-down I promised a plug) it was cashew cardamon cake, layered with vanilla and spices and frosted with an almond frosting. It was heaven. The cake above is not it but it looked similar. The only thing that beats it was my grandmother's orange and raisin cake which use an entire orange, skin and pulp included. This was lighter though.
What is your favorite dessert? What could you not pass up?
