Today saw my youngest brother, Daryl, my wife, Judy, and me, Roland, leave Toledo, Ohio on a one-day road trip north into Michigan.
First stop was at Tony’s Restaurant in Birch Run. Well, that’s not e-x-a-c-t-l-y true. The first stop was a potty break as Daryl just couldn’t “hold it” any longer. (I know – too much information.) THEN, we continued on to our first destination of Tony’s I-75 Restaurant that has been featured on “Sandwich Paradise.”
After we had our fill (literally) at Tony’s, we went across the street to Prime Outlets – Birch Run which has been called the largest outlet mall of Midwest U.S.A. Oh, my! What can I say?! Judy was in “Shopping Paradise.”
Next on our itinerary was Michigan’s Little Bavaria – the city of Frankenmuth, where we roamed the streets going in and out of shop after shop and enjoying numerous free food samples in quite a few of those that sold baked goods, fudge, candies, and cheeses. Mmmmm, mmmmm, good.
Turning our car back around to head back to Ohio, we made one more stop along the way while we were still in the State of Michigan to a great grocery store in Ann Arbor. This time in Ann Arbor, unlike our previous visits, we did not stop into either Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods Market. Nope. This time we stopped and shopped in Hiller’s. Fantastic! Fun. Great Variety. And, we got some good buys, too.
Oh, I just cannot help myself. The temptation is just too much for me! I did not put an embedded link into the phrase potty break up above there for fear it would distract you. But, I swear, you really need to click on this potty break.
