This is inside the deli - the bread wall. I could just stare at it for hours at a time. Besides the Deli they have many other businesses in town; The Roadhouse; The Creamery; The Bakehouse, etc. I go to the deli 2 times a weeks for bread and other goodies. A cappuccino next door at the coffee shop is a must. I'm there twice a week because of what's across the street - the Ann Arbor's Farmer's Market. (You regulars already know this. Sorry for the repetition.
Ann Arbor - There are several theories on the name - but the most popular one and the sweetest is that it was named in 1824 after the 2 founders' wives - who were both named Ann. Both Ann's also had arbors (ok, so not so exciting). We are also home to the biggest summer Art fair in the country - Ann Arbor Street Art Fair. We also have The Ann Arbor Blues and Jazz Festival, The Ann Arbor Folk Festival, The Ann Arbor Film Festival, just to name a few. We're artsy. Probably because of the biggest employer in our area of the world - The University of Michigan. U of M is ubiquitous to Ann Arbor. It's hard to tell where one ends and the other begins. We all bleed Maize and Blue. Most people think of this when they think of Ann Arbor.
Our population (115,000) at least doubles for a few Saturdays in the fall. We locals know when we can, and cannot get out of our driveways. There are other lovely things associated with U of M besides football - there is the Law Quad....
And Burton Tower....
Campus is photogenic and has some of the oldest buildings in the area. The University of Michigan has been called the Harvard of the Midwest. Ann Arbor has also been called the Paris of the Midwest. I can't confirm either of these, but I have a theory why A2 (what we locals call it) is called the Paris of the Midwest. I think it's because of all the outdoor cafes. Seriously. Every evening, seven months of the year, you will see acres and acres of people sitting at outdoor cafes .
My pictures don't really do it justice, but really - Outside ALL THE TIME. I can see the attraction in April and May after a long Michigan winter, but..... seat me inside with air conditioning and no exhaust fumes, please.
