I always enjoy R.J.'s and Brass Pointe for a nice dinner out.

A great evening out in Farmington Hills is to be at the schools hearing the FPS students performing.

Downtown: Basement Burger Bar/Cowleys/OR Luigis and a cheap movie. Also, coffee, people watching and a good book at Off the Beaten Path Books sounds like a fun evening out. DSO tix for Shaarey Zedek would be lovely!

Was at 2Booli tonight......enjoy Luigi's quite often (great food/neighborly atmosphere/good prices).....a movie at the classic Civic Theatre is always enjoyable, especially because we can walk or bike there and often run into more people we know that we can discuss the movie with. LOVE Farmington (and the Hills)!

I love to enjoy some Music in the Park in the Summer, take a walk around downtown and then eat at Cowley and Sons or one of the downtown restaurants. It has made for a nice night out with my wife this past summer.

I like going to Ruby Tuesdays for a dinner out.

Buddys Pizza for dinner. Then head over to Dairy Queen for Blizzards. That's what I consider a fun night. Attending a DSO concert at Shaarey Zedek would be perfect. Winning DSO tickets would be GREAT!!!

I enjoy going out to dinner at Pei Wei for some good Chinese Food and then to a movie.

Weather permitting...a nice evening walk at Heritage Park and then dinner with my husband afterwards. There are so many great choices to pick from...Greene's for something casual, Ginopolis for some BBQ or Hong Hua for some nice chinese food.

On Friday nights in summer we like getting take-out dinner from Cedar. Then we put our blanket down on the grass in Riley Park & eat our delicious Middle Eastern food while listening to a free Friday night concert. Tix to a DSO concert would be great!
