You can get all the fixin's for a bomb meal for two at Eastern Market for less than $20. There are morel mushrooms, locally raised meats, peppers so hot they’ll make you cry -- and it’s a great way to spend the day walking around one of the country’s longest-running markets.
Head over to the “adult” fan section at one of DCFC’s (formed in 2012) games and you’ll feel more pride and joy than any major-league game in the city. Be prepared to learn some explicit chants, inhale smoke bombs, and even help a guy wearing a hot dog costume stay afloat while crowd surfing: a great date for people who want to get their smile on.
Visit a cider mill
OK, we’re a little bit early with this one, but it is one of the best things about a Michigan autumn -- and don’t shoot us, but it’s right around the corner. Blake’s, Franklin, and Yates are among the closest mills to the city -- though our state is full of them. Get hot cider and cinnamon donuts, stroll through the orchard, and get one last look at your date outside sans parka.
