June 28, 2012


When we go on vacation we always go out for one really special dinner.  This year we decided to go to Pacific Rim in downtown Ann Arbor, MI.  We’d never been there before, and weren’t sure exactly what to expect, but the menu looked good so we decided to give a shot. The food was […]
