Shots in test tubes, amazing
Perhaps you've seen it: the big yellow building off I-94 between Ann Arbor and DTW. Though the Diamondback Saloon is only a few miles outside of Ann Arbor, it feels like a different world.
The bar has cheap beer. The servers all wear booty shorts. They come to your table with fifths of liquor in holsters and push cheap shots. Diamondback Saloon is also the only place where I've seen a leopard print, mesh miniskirt. Oh, and did I mention line dancing? In case you are a little rusty on your footwork, there are beginner line dancing lessons every Thursday for $5 from 7-9. Be warned: Earleen videotapes all her classes and puts them on youtube. Thankfully the video of me dancing has not been uploaded yet.
It is hard to capture the extent of booty shorts happening at Diamondback
As the night progresses, Diamondback gets pretty crowded and surprisingly diverse. Sure, there is a lot of camo, cowboy hats, a biker presidents, dip, and lots of country music. But the house band, Derringer, does some pop covers and not everyone is white.
