Pinky: Gee, Brain, what do you want to do tonight?
Brain: The same thing we do every night, Pinky - try to take over the world!
After a week of overtime, cramming for quizzes, and running around doing miscellaneous errands, what is a better way to relax than have some hang-time with friends? Yesterday I had to work a half-day (boo!) but after work I picked up my best friend Jamie, met Kyle, Dan, and my brother David downtown to go ice skating at Campus Martius. After sipping some caffeine to get us motivated, we hit the ice. Lauren, Kevin and their friend Lee also met us down there and our plan to dominate the ice rink was deflated once a dozen semi-professional ice skating girls took over the ice. The brats.  After our plans were foiled, we decided to move on to bigger and better things. Rob joined us and we were on a mission that was most significant, trying to take over the WORLD!  

Okay, no really, we just wanted some grub. Unfortunately with the North American Auto Show happening, along with a Kid Rock concert *shudder* and other random things going on in Detroit this weekend, every place was jammed packed. Until we got to Nikki's in Greektown and had some yummy pizza. Seriously, this pizza melts in your mouth like butter. Now granted it's only January, but the slice of pizza I ate was the first real junk food I have had this year and I was really proud of myself for waiting to have something I truly liked instead of just scarfing a $5 Hot-N-Ready. Needless to say, I was not able to skate with my camera, but here are some pics of everyone at Nikki's.

Oh and the pizza was annihilated quickly, so here is a 'artsy-foodie' pic of the salad:
