It was a rainy, dreary day that we embarked on a visit to Blue Llama. As we headed out of the Detroit area toward Ann Arbor, excitement filled the air! Along with the excitement was a bit of frustration because "bottled-up traffic" had caused a delay. But. . . we were trying to mentally "get back on track."

Arriving at Blue Llama, we were ushered to wall-side seating by a polite receptionist. Fixating on the stage, we saw "Don Hicks and Friends" already "sounding-off" with jazz tunes that quickly got our attention. It reminded me of a music class when Jazzist Scott Joplin was introduced to students, and they loved it at first hearing. I love Jazz, but I also love Smooth Jazz and waited to see if the band would play a tune or two. That did not happen.

Our visit to Blue Llama was an enjoyable experience. The non-traditional food was delicious! I recommend it highly. The food staff scurried around making sure everything was in perfect order. Also, they were extremely friendly. However, if you are going for dinner and a show, be prepared to spend in excess of two hundred dollars (without drinks).
