“The Walking Dead” Mystery Meat Beer Dinner

“The Walking Dead” Mystery Meat Beer Dinner

Where do zombies eat dinner? The Living Room. Actually, we think they’d be limping as fast as their dead legs could carry them over to Grand Trunk Pub’s Mystery Meat Beer Dinner. Next Tuesday, Dec. 16 at 7 p.m., Grand Trunk will be serving a four course tasting menu inspired by the popular AMC zombie-apocalypse […]

Keep Growing Detroit

Keep Growing Detroit

Call us crazy, but we actually really enjoy cooking for a crowd on holidays like Thanksgiving. It’s the shopping – the crowds, the parking, the fighting-for-that-last-box-of-Stove-Top-stuffing – that we don’t love. So we were excited to find a one-stop, no-shopping option for our Thanksgiving veggies. And all the veggies are local, to boot. Keep Growing […]

Detroit’s Haunted Bars

Detroit’s Haunted Bars

We love a good ghost story on Halloween: tales of restless spirits, phantoms, spectors, grim grinning ghosts – still haunting the places they loved most when they were alive.
