So it's Friday night and I am supposed to be exhausted from a strenuous run and munching on something healthy but instead my lazy butt is parked in front of the TV watching, you guessed it, Gilmore Girls and eating pizza. After the long week of very long workdays I've had, I don't feel too bad about having a lazy night. 

Occasionally, Kyle and I have lazy Saturdays with friend and we head to Detroit to one of our favorite places: Grand Trunk/Foran's Irish Pub. We head down early for half-off pints and some delicious food, and sit around chatting or playing Apples to Apples for hours.

My brother Mark swears that the Rubens are the best around, and we're Polish. Other then tonight, I try to be healthy. I ordered a quiche and fruit and they made me a swan out of apples! Bloody fancy huh? 

Although there are no pool tables or jukeboxes, the place itself is pretty snazzy. It used to be the old Grand Trunk railroad ticket station, and there are cathedral ceilings and old signs on the walls. Although technically a pub, it is not uncommon to see a small child accompanied by parents, parked at the bar. Especially when it is very typical for The Muppets or Danger Mouse to be shown on Saturdays.

It's also fun to take pictures of people eating, muwhahaha!

  4. So I'm pretty jealous every time you mention that you're watching GG. I was a huge fans and watched it religiously even though my boyfriend made fun of me. I was hoping to be able to find it on Netflix instant but no dice.yet.
    I might just have to bite the bullet and purchase the series. here's to unproductive Friday nights!!

  5. There are times to be good and healthy and then there are times to be bad and lazy. Like you, I was exhausted last night from a hard week of work and my plan to exercise and then cook a healthy meal of veggies went straight out the window -- I picked up KFC on the way home and relaxed on the couch watching TV. I swear I think we're sisters!
