We stopped in to eat before heading over to the Detroit Zoo for their Wild Lights. I did enjoy my Mimosa sampler however, the Chicken tortilla soup wasn't that good. I would consider trying it again if I'm ever in the area.

We arrived at 5:45pm for dinner. At 7pm we were asked to move to a different table for trivia people. We were still eating and drinking. The manager said the hostess should not have sat us at that table. Get it together
