i spent some time at the ever amazing DIY street fair in ferndale. where i shopped the fabulous DIY vendors, ate vegan mac and cheese, ate a hero from hero or villain's food truck, and drank delicious blake's hard cider. flannel mouth! and i learned that cider with jabanero is pretty good.
theater bizarre is always a sight wherever they go.
i have been meaning to hit up northville winery for some hard cider - it's one of my faves and i was excited to visit the tasting room. they serve flights in muffin tins! it did not disappoint. except for the bees. and the crazy busy cider mill next to it, that we totally avoided.
the city of northville also had the victorian festival happening, complete with lumberjack theme. um, we didn't see much evidence of either... but we did happen upon a desolate and odd little carnival, so we rode some rides and laughed our butts off!
HA HO HE. we could not stop laughing. it was a very interesting carnie adventure.
and that's how you do a crisp goodbye summer kind of weekend in the mitten state.
