Friday night, Adam and I went to check out a local joint called the Wise Owl Drinkery and Cookhouse. They have a nice outdoor patio so we tried to take advantage of our final weeks of summer weather.
On Saturday morning, I went to a Nike Training Club event. We went through a benchmarking workout to help measure our fitness levels, then did some yoga.
Saturday afternoon, Adam and I went to Taste of Greektown. It was very windy and crowded, but the food was outstanding. You could smell the aroma from literally a mile away!
Adam (and every other guy in the vicinity) was fascinated by an enormous electronic rotisserie we saw near one of the restaurants. Unfortunately I didn't get a picture, but it was mechanically and rhythmically spinning dozens of skewers over open flames.
Saturday night, Anne was hosting a wedding celebration at Schnitzel Platz. Many congratulations to her and her new husband, Terry!

I enjoyed the live polka band:
The food was very authentically German, of course. Sausage, schnitzel, dumplings, sauerkraut, spaetzle, plenty of beer, etc. Check out the beer boots!
We had a funny moment when one of the food runners brought out the following dish:
We asked a waiter what it was. His enthusiastic response: "I have no idea!!!" (It turns out it was a dumpling made out of either potato or bread.)
Sunday morning, I ran the Fort2Base 10 Nautical-Mile race. Full recap to come tomorrow. In the meantime, here is a picture of the fabulous medal:
After the race, Adam and I had lunch with my mom, then came back home to relax for the rest of the day. Now, onto the new workweek!
Your turn! Tell me about your weekend!
