Best place to take a client – To the bank (just kidding).
Favorite watering hole – Tango’s at the Westin (right around the corner from Lipton Law).
Local beverage of choice – Valentine Vodka tastes the best, and is headquartered in Ferndale.
Best restaurant – Local Kitchen and Bar in Ferndale, but I may be biased, as I am part owner. We have the best patio in town, great food and a fun event space.
Favorite city event – Huntington Woods’ Fourth of July celebration. Naturally, this is my favorite because it’s where I live and have raised my family.
Where to go after a win – Bacco Ristorante speaks for itself: great food, amazing wine list, superb service, never a disappointment and a great place to celebrate.
Besides the people, favorite thing about your office – The fact that I bring my dog to the office when I want.
Best Way to reflect – Driving my convertible on a sunny day.
Go-to sports venue – Target Sports on Woodward. Who doesn’t love to go shooting on a Sunday morning? I hang out with a great group of men, who are some of the best shooters in the state.
Favorite movie theater – The Maple Theater. There’s always a great movie, and nothing is better than a glass of wine with a movie.
Best place for people watching – Eastern Market.
Favorite local shop – Saffron in Royal Oak. The owner is adorable, and her boho-chic style is too cute for words.
Favorite coffee shop – Starbucks on Woodward, north of 13 Mile. Go on Sunday mornings after Target Sports.
Favorite pizza joint – Amici’s in Berkley. The best recipes, the best pizza and women-owned! My favorite pizza is the black bean.
Go-to arts venue – DIA (Detroit Institute of Arts).
Best view – DAC rooftop.
Favorite historical site in Detroit – The Guardian Building.
Favorite park – Campus Martius.
Place to take out-of-town guests – Detroit Golf Club.
Favorite sports bar – Mr. Joe’s.
