Date night in fabulous Ferndale! One mile north of the city limit at 9 mile & Woodward Ave. is the hopping little city center of Ferndale. I’ve been following The Hungry Dudeand based on some eye-popping pics he posted I have been trying to get to One- Eyed Betty’s for months.
Finally, one of my hubby’s favorite bands Half Light Music was playing at The Magic Bag so I convinced him to have a beer and some appetizers first.
It was a Friday night around 8ish so we had to wait awhile for a table, but that was just perfect for me to get to taste MORE of their enormous beer menu (yahoo!). We sat down to friendly, helpful servers who guided our selection of two different beers and two apps (our eyes were DEFINITELY bigger than our stomachs!) it was all amazing! I’m not sure if it was the fact we were out alone for the first time in a month, the high alcohol content of the beer or the fabulous food, but I was experiencing Nirvana when the Pork Belly Poutine and the cutting board sampler came to the table.
This photo does the food absolutely no justice…it was salty, crunchy, gooey, cheesy AND savory…
I hadn’t even noticed the horrible glare off the menu when I took this picture because my eyes were tearing up in delight!
What’s your favorite date night spot or one you’ve been eyeing??
yum that looks amazing! Totally miss Detroit! Lived in Novi & Ann Arbor…a lifetime ago…
I think it’d be difficult to find Poutine outside of Canada but we are a bit of a province here, so we get that and tons of Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shops 😉
