Fun Foodie Fare
Since the start of the New Year, the Ann Arbor area has welcomed a number of new restaurants to its vibrant dining scene. For a unique twist on Mexican cuisine, try Isalita. If you’re craving French-inspired sweet and savory creations, What Crepe? is sure to satisfy your appetite. New to Main Street, Vellum offers a cool, contemporary atmosphere and serves up fresh, seasonal American dishes. For something sweet, try The Wafel Shop – and for something hoppy, head to the area’s newest microbrewery – the Chelsea Alehouse.
The Briarwood Mall will celebrate its 40th anniversary in style this year! Five luxury brand stores will open this spring, including Michael Kors, Yankee Candle, Soma Intimates, Vera Bradley and Lush Cosmetics. They’ll also undergo a major renovation that will include a new children’s play area, cell phone charging stations and additional seating, among many other exciting enhancements.
One Foolish Weekend
Ann Arbor’s quirky spring kick-off involves two incredibly foolish events. On Friday, April 5, FoolMoon’s luminary lanterns will light up the streets for a nighttime party - complete with fool brews and foolish tunes. On Sunday, April 7th, fools from far and wide will unite for the annual Festifools giant paper-mache puppet parade!
