So Rightfully Raw attended its first annual Holiday Food Bazaar in the D & it was awesome! I'm not going to lie--upon our arrival, I held some skepticism as the building (The Jam Handy) looked like it was a few MI winter storms away from collapse and while walking in we were told it used to be a haunted house for Halloween. Once we walked in though, I was skeptic no more. Two big open warehouse style rooms, sort of reminded me of a big, empty old farmhouse, unfinished walls, stairway up to the rafters where the DJ sat, and all us classy vendors organized throughout, some with pretty, sparkly Christmas lights. I'm telling you, if I got to redo my wedding I would hire this DJ!! He was awesome!!! He played actual 45's all night and a great selection of music, from fun Christmas music to sweet blues, and some stuff I'd never heard before. There were people hanging out in the back room on wooden bleachers, eating their fares or just hanging with friends. There was tons of foods, my favorite being the veggie empanda with mint chutney sauce, and I must say it was pretty tantalizing sitting next to Detroit Sausage Co all night while they sizzled bacon. All in all, I don't know how else to describe the event's coolness other than to say it was just very...Detroit. And I was really happy to be supporting Detroit and doing something fun in the city. Doesn't hurt than an underground event has an element of excitement and edge to it. ;) Already looking forward to DHFB 2013!
