We discussed a few options for the afternoon -- a walk, a car wash, a little shopping.... but when I got home, all I really wanted to do was cuddle up with a good book for awhile. So we did. It was just a nice low-stress way to spend the afternoon. I even took a short nap. Lovely!
We decided we wanted to do something a little differnt friday night, but we weren't sure what. Searching through the Metro Times, F hit on the idea of a play. We found one that sounded very interesting, that was at a convenient time, so we made reservations for a couple of tickets.
The theater we were going to, Planet Ant, is in Hamtramck. Hamtramck is a Polish district in Detroit. Naturally we decided that the best thing for dinner would be to seek out a Polish restaurant nearby. Not knowing exactly where we were going, we just drove around looking for something good. We stumbled across a nice place and enjoyed sauerkraut, sausage, perogis, and stuffed cabbage.
Next we went to see the play. A Number was a two-actor play about cloning, and a sad and entangled mystery between a father and his son. The story was dark, fascinating, and both of the actors were very talented. Definitely a worthwhile show! Especially for only $10 with a student discount ($15 otherwise).
We had read that after the play, the same theatre had a comedy show. It was a scripted performance put on by an improv group. At first we weren't sure if we'd stay, but I'm glad we did. It was funny and entertaining, a good contrast to the earlier show. Good fun!
Still energized after the comedy, we decided that perhaps some dancing was in order. I haven't been to City Club in around a year, and haven't visited regularly in much longer than that.... but it's always a neat place to go. We were half-way there already, so we decided to swing by. We weren't dressed to go out, but the cool thing about City Club is that you can dress as normal or weird as you want.
Although weird is definitely preferred. Great people-watching there!
I was pleased to run into a few friends, giving me extra people to converse and catch up with. I did some dancing, did some roaming, and even saw F once or twice... *laugh* He was busy being his social self, but it was okay. I'm glad we went; we both had an excellent time.
Like I said, a lovely day. I haven't enjoyed that kind of relaxation combined with interesting and fun in far too long. It was almost like I was on vacation or something! Quite nice.
