When in Mackinac, eat fudge. And don't pronounce it Mackinac -- it's pronounced MackinAW, and sometimes even spelled that way.

Then eat at French Laundry. And if you can go to a Tigers game, do it. But I can't vouch for this new stadium -- I only spent time in the crappy, scary old one.


First - Can I go on another road trip with you to an All-Cusack Tour of Michigan? Sigh. I love every member of that family...

Second - Your current road trip should include an homage to that seminal Dan Akroyd movie Doctor Detroit - filmed in Chicago. I'm still mad we never got the promised sequel Doctor Detroit II, the Wrath of Mom.


Srsly, you girls are doin' it right. Can't wait to trival vicariously w/ y'all on your roadtrip (woohoo)!


Um... that would be "travel". Yeah, spelling, whatever.


You have to eat at a Coney Island at some point while you are in Detroit. My personal favotie is Duly's on the corner of Vernor and Junction.

As long as you're in Detroit, bring your passports and cross the Ambassador bridge into Windsor, just so you can say you went to Canada on the trip.

40 Whatever Approved

Things to Do When We're 40 (The Not Bucket List)

  • A barbecue tour of the South
    We'll start in the Carolinas and end in Texas and sample the best barbecue America has to offer. Why? Because we like meat.
  • Hotel Living
    We like: mini bars, movies, and lounging around in our pajamas with our laptops right where they are supposed to be. We'll bring running shoes to pretend like we're going to work out, but really, who are we kidding. You see where this is going?
  • Knock some sense into dumb people
    We'd love to be the camp counselors on a show like the Real World or Rock of Love.
  • Eating Dinner in a Vineyard While the Sun Sets
    You know those scenes of a dining table set in a Tuscan or Sonoma vineyard dressed with beautiful linens and people sitting around it drinking wine and eating and laughing while the sun goes down? We want to be those people.
  • Yoga Retreat in New Mexico
    Some of our fondest memories are of spending time doing yoga together. Do other wannabe yoginis spend the entire class laughing together? We do.
