We are spoiled by Eastern Market

Tweet I had an out-of-town wedding on Saturday, and it took up my whole day. As a result, I didn’t get to go to my beloved Eastern Market, as I usually do late morning or early afternoon on Saturday. Sadness — no kale. No collard greens. No naturally grown carrots. No farm-fresh eggs. (And...

Get your coffee in Corktown, again

Tweet For the short time it was around, I was a regular at Mercury Coffee Bar, across the street from Slows BBQ in Corktown. We’d go there after dinner for decaf tea and pecan pie, or for a slow drip and lunch (their salads were amazing). So imagine our surprise when we had lunch...

Try Duly’s for a no-frills yet delicious diner

Tweet Anyone who knows me knows that my favorite meal of the day is brunch, followed closely by breakfast. I love all things morning food: toast and jelly, fruit bowls, bacon, potatoes, and, most of all, eggs. Give me an omelet and I’m a happy girl. As a result, I’m always on the lookout...

I’m a sad Inge fan today

Tweet I couldn’t bring myself to actually physically go to the Tigers game last night, with the “feels like” temperature in the triple digits, but I did watch the whole thing. And man, I can’t tell you how sad I was with the announcement at the end that Brandon Inge would be heading down...

Yes, a Whole Foods would be good for midtown

Tweet Everybody’s falling all over themselves with the announcement that Whole Foods is, indeed, coming to midtown Detroit. Or, at least, talks are progressing toward that end, and land parcels are being discussed. I’d be lying if I wasn’t excited about the store coming to town. I’m a big proponent of grocery stores within...

Inside Detroit makes the most of your city experience
