I feel like I have sort of abandoned this blogmobile for my Google+ page. But it wasn’t on purpose! The new update page on WordPress is not my favorite and all my photos automatically give me the option to share on Google+ anyway. But City Mitten, I’ll always love you. So I’ve decide to say hello with some of my favorite (cell phone) shots from the past few weeks.

My homegirl Michelle came to visit this weekend and one of the many awesome things we did included a trip to Yankee Stadium to see The Detroit Tigers (and they won!). We got some garlic fries and moved to the lower level and had an overall good time. She’s easy to hang with when she’s here, I don’t have ro run around like a chicken with my head cut off so I really appreciate that.

Here’s a work-related photo of myself that I really dig:

That’s me, on the internet. Or more specifically, that’s me being projected onto a wall at the latest Zagat 30 Under 30 party in New York. Holla!

Speaking of 30 Under 30, after the event (and after the after-party), a group of us headed over to Parm for some late-night eats. These eats included ice cream cake, as you do.

Well, hello.

And finally, the last picture I’ll include in this update is me and some of my girlies after Easter brunch at Almond. My dad was in town for Easter and was really impressed with Almond (as was I, great place!) and so here I am with some of my girls.

Good times!

I  may have some other updates in the pipeline here, but this is all for now. Good night!

Happy Fourth of July! That was yesterday. Let me introduce you to a favorite American past time: baseball. Detroit baseball. We went to the game on Saturday with about 25 people – family and friends – and our seats were bomb. Lower level, which I never buy for myself because they are $$$ and I expected to be sitting in the nosebleeds since we had so many people, so it was a nice surprise when our tickets were lower level. Here’s my cousin Nicole, who is awesome:

And here are some fancy hotdogs that Michelle took a picture of for me:

Mmm hmm. What’s more American than some hotdogs at a ballpark?

And as you can see from my first picture, there is a carousel at Comerica Park and it’s made up of Tigers and we rode it! I looooove carousels.

It went kind of fast! And as you can see, I’m wearing a Yankees t-shirt to the Tigers game. I was actually expecting at least one drunk guy to heckle me, but alas, I only got some weird looks! It’s a Granderson t-shirt, which is funny because the Yanks stole him from the Tigs.

We won, natch. Go Tigers! And we stayed after the game for some fancy fireworks:

Yay! Hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July!

Goooooooo Team! And by team we mean TIGERS! Wednesday night I went to the Tigers/Mets game at Citifield with six other native Detroiters and one kid from Florida. Yep. Unfortunately the Tigers were creamed. CREAMED. 5-0. But it was fun; we had things to eat, badges to earn on Foursquare, cheers to cheer, and lots of people to look at. Baseball too. And we got giant foam fingers! First, the food:

Here’s Abhishek’s hot dog with lots of things on it:

I don’t even know what all that is. Onions? Japalenos? Relish? Out of control. And now here is a vat of cheese:

Also out of control. Finally, my pulled pork sammie from Blue Smoke:

Erm, delicious. Only the slightest hint of barbeque sauce and only the slightest hint was needed. And there were pickles. How come I’ve never been to Blue Smoke before? It’s on the list now.

And now, me and my friends:

It’s an accomplishment to get an awesome group of 8 at the same place at the same time. Nice work, team. :) Have a good weekend!
