I wish I’d remembered to take a picture of the interior of Briggs, because I dug it. To be honest, while having my phone tucked into the band of my yoga pants during the bouts of running, sweat from my body seeped in through the phone case, rendering the buttons mostly useless (gross, I know!). So my photo-taking during this extravaganza was generally limited.
I took the above-shown photo of the exterior of Briggs this morning – as in the morning of the day I’m writing this post in late August! But Briggs’ interior is cool; it has antique-pub-meets-sports-bar vibes, with old-fashioned tin ceiling tiles and a wood-topped bar comingling with flat-screen TVs and a large digital scoreboard.
On its menu, Briggs offers a selection of craft draft beers as well as a variety of tasty-sounding appetizers and entrees, including burgers, sliders, a loaded burrito bowl, and an intriguing-sounding sandwich called a Taco Melt.
I enjoyed my sojourn at Briggs before the final stop on the Chug-A-Lug junket, McShane’s, another 100 Places in the D alumni member. Briggs struck me as a solid spot to hang.
The overall experience of the Chug-A-Lug run was amazing! It was free to participate in (with the additional option to purchase a fun event t-shirt for a small free) and was a fun community-fostering event where I met some cool people. If you’re interested in learning more about the Chug-A-Lug and keeping tabs on when registration opens for the next iteration of it, check out this page on the organizer’s website: www.detroitchampions.com/chug.
