Excellent Road Trip Day 32. Detroit Wins For Latest Night. April 26, 2008 This is what two in the morning looks like. It’s Bossy’s slider, one of many burgers to emerge from a paper bag after one of the Detroit bloggers made an emergency run to the nearest White Castle. Blame her. Or her. Or her or her or her. Or her. Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmail « Previous Post: Bossy’s Chicago Husband. The Panera Bread Edition.Next Post: » Bossy’s Excellent Road Trip. Day Thirty-Four.

Gotta love White Castles
Nance saysApril 26, 2008 at 11:11 am
Oh, thank GOD I left before the White Castle visit. I might be clinically dead by now.
But guess what I saw on the way home? A CAR FIRE. A really, really good one. Detroit after midnight is totally awesome.
Debbie saysApril 26, 2008 at 11:15 am
Next time you’re in the south, try Krystal – kinda like a White Castle. You might be able to tell the difference BEFORE 2am, but probably not after.
ms ellie saysApril 26, 2008 at 11:23 am
It’s pretty crafty how Bossy’s face is accented and illuminated in all the group shots. You really did read the book with your new camera at the beauty shop that day!
that girl saysApril 26, 2008 at 11:25 am
they sell white castle burgers in the freezer section of my grocery store. they don’t look like that. bossy is having more fun than me, again. I gotta get a saturn.
blackbird saysApril 26, 2008 at 11:43 am
You know, every SINGLE ONE of the bloggers Bossy hangs out with are gorgeous looking.
moosh in indy. saysApril 26, 2008 at 11:44 am
I figure if any city in the Nation could rock the WC at 2 am it’s Detroit.
Ok, Where Was I? saysApril 26, 2008 at 11:45 am
I guess you didn’t need the stool softeners for day 33.
Nancy saysApril 26, 2008 at 11:57 am
Darn I missed the sliders! (whew)
Had I not been up since 5AM, I probably could have hung in with you ’till 2AM.
It was so nice to meet up with all of these great gals!
Ree (the Other one) saysApril 26, 2008 at 12:04 pm
I’m so sorry I missed the Detroit bash. The exhaustion finally took over.
Looks like y’all did Detroit proud.
Christy saysApril 26, 2008 at 12:10 pm
Man. Bossy I was SO CLOSE to Bossy. I feel like a better person! 😉
(White Castle French Onion Cheeseburgers. There are no words that will appropriately express my love for them.)
Dara saysApril 26, 2008 at 12:41 pm
Ditto what “OK where was I?” said.
WC= irritable bowel syndrome…..pepto, anyone?
stepher saysApril 26, 2008 at 12:45 pm
I haven’t had a White Castle in decades.
Party on, Motor City!

MMMMMMMMMMMM – White Castle!
MommyTime saysApril 26, 2008 at 12:58 pm
Nance and Nancy, I’m sorry you missed the fabulous sliders… 🙂 What a great time I had having everyone over. Thanks to you all.
Sister Honey Bunch saysApril 26, 2008 at 1:00 pm
I really wish I had been able to make it down. You should have driven another four hours north to God’s country. It’s purdy here.
mr.lootiatto saysApril 26, 2008 at 1:52 pm
Now I’m realizing that the Bossy that appears in the lower corner EVERYTIME is just an apparition like the seagull.
David saysApril 26, 2008 at 2:23 pm
White Castle? Eeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!!
The Domestic Goddess saysApril 26, 2008 at 2:55 pm
PLEASE tell me you didn’t eat that, what with all the good burger joints in the world. White Castle? Who eats that?
Grandma J saysApril 26, 2008 at 3:33 pm
Where’s the beef? Seriously, that’s not a burger.
Don’t tell me Bossy spent twenty days in CA and never had an In n’ Out Burger.
Dorothy Stahlnecker saysApril 26, 2008 at 4:25 pm
Looks like your having a great time. I wanted White Castle to come to the Buffalo market and they won’t to date. I love their burgers…
Dorothy from grammology
remember to call gram
Suburban Kamikaze saysApril 26, 2008 at 4:44 pm
Seriously, Detroit. We are so challenging you to a party-off. White Castle burgers are what you serve at a party for middle school boys. Did someobody bring a case of orange soda too?
I’m just saying.
Fun's Not the Word saysApril 26, 2008 at 5:00 pm
White Castle is the BOMB! In more ways than one, of course…
tj saysApril 26, 2008 at 5:10 pm
…That is one s-a-d lookin’ burger… Yeah Bossy, you eat a bag of those and YOU’LL be making an emergency run! They don’t call it “The Porcelain Palace” for nothin’ you know…lol :o)
Foolery saysApril 26, 2008 at 7:53 pm
But how was the salmon? Good lord, do you know how much CREAM CHEESE went into that?! I’m jonesing for some SALMON TALK!!
supertiff saysApril 26, 2008 at 8:31 pm
i win for Shiniest Face EVER.
also, i kind of wish i had another slider right now.
bossy, i’m totally going to rat you out about your disgusting ‘hangover cure’ a little later tonight. i just want you to know that you’re not getting away with that nonsense.
i mean, i took notes after all.
All Adither saysApril 26, 2008 at 8:41 pm
Oh, White Castle is gross. Meat paste on a bun. And the last time I was in Detroit I saw a raging car fire too. It was middle of the day and no one even blinked!
Meghan Rosenstengel saysApril 26, 2008 at 8:52 pm
I’m sorry I couldn’t make the Michigan Get Together. I’m sure the WC’s will make it one of the more memorable stops on your journey. 🙂
This was my quote of the day yesterday and it made me think of Bossy’s Adventure:
Coming home from very lonely places, all of us go a little mad: whether from great personal success, or just an all-night drive, we are the sole survivors of a world no one else has ever seen.
Kat saysApril 27, 2008 at 9:41 am
You’re making me pine for my hometown, Bossy, and that hardly EVER happens!
Nothing like a moist, onion-laden slider after a long night of drinking and dancing. I keep waiting for White Castle to come to Texas but it’s been decades, I guess it ain’t happening.
heart shaped hedges saysApril 27, 2008 at 10:07 am
Im realizing that one day bossy will go home, and that day is soon. I checked out your itinerary to see just how many stops you have left, and I think it is 2, or by now, 1 or none.
I also noticed, that your itinerary left off the best stop of all; OC/Laguna Beach. It was as if you went from SD to LA and didnt get to enjoy the guacamole and bougainvillea, but Im glad you did stop for us/them.
I wonder if this morning you are home, getting hugs from the fam?
Meg saysApril 27, 2008 at 11:43 am
OMG! You know you’ve met another serious Cusack lover when you see the ‘Jack Bull’ VHS on her dog’s nose. I thought I was the only Blogger out there with that movie in my Cusack collection.
Did you have a drink at the Green Mill while in Chicago?
Do you have the Lloyd Dobbler finger puppet as well?
I loved your movie. And your hats!
Deb on the Rocks saysApril 27, 2008 at 2:07 pm
Cheese? Detroit steered you so. Wrong. The white box should not be degraded with cheese. I hope they didn’t give your ketchup or mustard either. Bun, burger, onions, pickle, grease, cardboard, only after 2 am. The Zen of WC.
Biddy saysApril 27, 2008 at 4:20 pm
*sigh* i wish we had a white castle ’round here…
Phil saysApril 28, 2008 at 11:40 am
Back in the day, a great night in the Big D was cold Stroh’s from the brewery, and a sack of sliders.
That, my friends, was living.
Heather saysApril 28, 2008 at 3:17 pm
I ADORE White Castles.
Carrie saysApril 29, 2008 at 6:29 pm
So that’s what a real live White Castle Slider looks like! Yum.
