Since the Michigan Wolverines will be playing in the NCAA Basketball National Championship game tonight, it seemed a great opportunity to point out some of our favorite places in Ann Arbor. Megan attended the University of Michigan for her undergrad studies and we got to know the city fairly well, over those four years. We attended many tailgates, parents weekends and breakfasts, lunches and dinners out.
Ann Arbor is the quintessential college town, with many great bars and restaurants for both the students and the diverse residents that call it home. We also love to go there on a nice summer evening and take advantage of the many outdoor dining opportunities. It is a place to take a stroll down Main Street and either people watch or take in an impromptu concert, right on the sidewalk. If you are lucky enough to be there on a football Saturday, in the fall, you will be able to experience the picture perfect Midwestern small town day.
My favorites include left, Savas for a great eclectic menu and a wonderful atmosphere, top right, Palio for the delicious Italian cuisine, as well as the sangria on the rooftop deck and bottom right, Angelo's, an Ann Arbor institution for breakfast, with a line out the door on weekends and game days.
Megan's favorites include top left, The Jolly Pumpkin Cafe & Brewery, a great place for vegetarian food and beer sampling, top right, The Broken Egg, a great breakfast spot in the historic Kerrytown neighborhood, bottom left, Sadako for fresh and delicious sushi and bottom right, The Blue Leprechaun, the perfect bar for watching the big game or that special birthday celebration.
There are so many more great restaurants and bars, all with that unique Ann Arbor atpmosphere. Ann Arbor will definitely be in a party mood, for tonight's big game. Good luck to the Michigan Wolverines tonight and Happy Monday!
