It was a busy night in Detroit and tough to find parking. Our driver, Sophie, was very accommodating and patient as we waited for the late comers to arrive. She took us to the Detroit Shipping Co. bar, which was really cool.More

Happy Birthday! No better way to celebrate than getting the family and some friends downtown, even if the weather isn't ideal. Thanks for pointing out that even if there's a little rain it doesn't ruin the party; that's something that some customers are never really...More
