The Gandy Dancer

Michigan has a lot of beautifully restored historic train depots and Ann Arbor's is no exception. The Gandy Dancer it's called and their specialty of seafood is out of this world. It looks rather formidable with its stone structure and unique lighting, but we think it adds to the mystique. If you are of a certain age, then perhaps you know what a gandy dancer is. We had to look it up: they are the guys who used a leverage tool to straighten the rails when they were laid in the 19th century and perhaps they appeared like waddling geese when straddling the rails, hence the nickname!
