I am constantly inspired by my surroundings. I am in love with the city of Detroit and all of it’s beauty. After a long 10 hour work-day, saving a kitten under a trailer in Detroit (yes, saved a baby kitten).. I decided to treat myself to an adventure in Greektown. I hopped on the people mover, many of you know that this is my favorite part of Detroit… it is our only transit besides the bus – which I have not mastered.
The People Mover is an above ground transit in downtown Detroit. It will take you around the city in 15 minutes for only $0.75. I typically ride the people mover about 3’xs per week. I am fascinated by all of the construction and growth in the city. I like to see how progress in coming on renovations and establishments.
I hopped on the people mover with all of my gear.. I immediately knew that after dinner, I would be heading back to the office to finalize a few more last minute Friday emails. I arrived at the Greektown station — I could immediately smell the smoke from the casino. Phew. If I didnt get headaches from the smell; I wouldn’t complain. I held my breathe, grabbed the elevator and went to the first floor to exit.
I’ve arrived!! You know that you’re in Greektown by the delicious smells coming from everywhere. I walked around for awhile before deciding where to enjoy a bite to eat. I wanted to sit outside and Pappy’s Bar & Grill looked like the perfect spot. I ordered an IPA to pair with a chicken sandwich. There were a lot of people walking up & down the cross streets – taking photos, enjoying dinner or just living life.
Here is a quick video capturing the life in Greektown!
I would definitely like to enjoy Greektown more often. I will have to bring my clients here sometime.
