City of Pawn Shops, Lighthouses, and BaseballTuesday, August 28, 2012
A few weekends ago, my parents came up for their second visit since Brad and I moved up here. It was kind of a last-minute thing, but since they were already in the neighborhood (six hours away instead of the usual nine to ten), we all said, "Why not?" and planned for a weekend in Detroit.
Now, maybe you've heard of it, and maybe you haven't, but my dad loves this show called Hardcore Pawn. I've seen it a few times, and it really is entertaining--if you enjoy watching a bunch of disgruntled people snap when they find out their TVs have been sold. And the best part about the show? It's shot at American Jewelry and Loan, which is conveniently located in the Metro Detroit area. Needless to say, we had to stop by.
Here, for your viewing pleasure, are some of the treasures we came across at AJ&L:
|Dont worry--I don't think I will.|
|Biggest raccoon I've ever seen. Ever. He could eat your dog.|
|Me and my Daddy|
|I love the view of Detroit's skyline from Comerica Park--it almost doesn't look real.|
|Covering the field during the rain delay.|
Post-ice cream, the rain let up, we filed back in, and the rest of the game went on without a hitch. And you know what? We won! 'Atta team.
|Here's one with my mom! She thinks the reverse-camera option on my iPhone is really cool.|
