High-Low Wine Dinner

High-Low Wine Dinner

Is expensive wine really better? When we break out a pricey bottle of vino, we treat it differently. Special. Our friends ooh and ahh over the boutique little vineyard it came from. But if we poured it side-by-side with Two Buck Chuck, we’re not really sure if we could differentiate the two. Maybe that’s an […]

Pi(e) Popup

Pi(e) Popup

Pie was developed for practical purposes. Armies and explorers needed something easy to carry, easy to store, and long-lasting to eat on lengthy journeys. A version of chicken pot pie has been around since 2000 BCE, and sweeter pies appeared between 1304 and 1237 BCE. Even back then, we think they knew: that practical, easy-to-store […]

Detroit Patio Dining

When the first day of Spring also happens to fall on a Friday, like today, it makes us want to walk down the street singing and dancing like we’re in a cheesy movie-musical. After a long winter, we’re ready to put away our parka and break out the sunglasses. Spring also marks the beginning of […]

Azul Popup

When Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo arrived in Detroit in April 1932, the city was not in great shape. It was the height of the Great Depression. Sales of automobiles plunged, and there were layoffs in all industrial businesses. Welfare spending skyrocketed. By 1933 the city was in a financial crisis, defaulting on bond payments, […]

Aside from sipping green beer and belting off-tune Irish drinking songs, one of our favorite St. Patrick’s Day traditions is mowing down on corned beef all day. The big day is coming up on Tuesday, March 17, and Corktown’s famous St. Patty’s Day parade is happening this Sunday, March 15. There are tons of cool […]

Two Popup Menus You Need To Try This Week

If you have dinner plans this week, cancel them – at least if those plans fall on Thursday or Sunday. There are two popup dinners that we’re really stoked about, and they couldn’t be more different. One is a casual and playful meal, the other is a six-course, pull-out-all-the-stops dining event. On Thursday, March 12 […]

The Twisted Mitten

The Twisted Mitten

Last summer we fell in love with the rice bowls and lamb BLT at Qais food truck. We’ve been salivating with anticipation all winter, waiting for food truck weather to return so we can sink our teeth into some cheesy risotto balls or parmesan fries again. But Qais will not be returning with the spring […]

Pete’s Chocolate Co.

Pete’s Chocolate Co.

We blame Columbus for our debilitating chocolate addiction. Chris C. first brought cacao beans back to Spain after his fourth trip to the New World in 1502. From there, Spanish friars popularized a hot chocolate drink, sweetened with sugar or honey, with the Spanish court. And the good stuff spread like wildfire. Chocolate truffles – […]

The Streetlight Series

Detroit is one of the best cities in the world to hear live music. You already know this. What you may not realize is that Detroit, recently, has also become a filmmaking hub. We’re not just talking about Hollywood-comes-to-the-Motor-City films. This city is a hotbed for talented local artists producing interesting and high quality movies. […]
