Bagley Street Bridge, MexiTown






Tuesday night I drove down to Mexican Town in Detroit for margaritas and yummy food with some of the best people in the world. The area has been in quite a flux lately because of the expansion of the bridge to Canada. One sweet thing they built was a beautiful pedestrian bridge over the highways. So after we stuffed ourselves silly and drank ourselves goofy at Xochimilco, got some cookies at La Gloria Bakery and sat on the bridge to watch the sunset.








The bridge has a great view of the abandoned Michigan Central Depot, downtown, and the Ambassador Bridge. The pedestrian bridge itself is super nice as well except for the fact that it's already been quite vandalized. But hey what do you expect.







So the evening was perfect, perfect weather, perfect people. Full of giggles and silliness. Nights like this are what I'm going to miss the most.

Huggles,
Lauren

I love your skirt! It's so pretty, especially with that top. And I want that cookie.

Really great pictures, what a nice night :) I love Xochimilco, but I always end up at Mexican Village!

TONIGHT. I will see you at Loving Touch :) What time you think you'll be getting up there? I'm gonna be in Ferndale anyway, hanging out with a couple friends... can't wait to meet you I hope I freaking recognize you!!

Beautiful pictures with the sun setting! I don't think I've been to Mexican town since before I moved out to Chicago. I always liked walking around down there though. That cookie looks really yummy and is giving me a craving for sweets!
