Opening Day 2016

Opening Day 2016

Some days, we feel sorry for other cities. Apparently, in most parts of the country, the baseball home opener is not a good enough reason to take the day off work and bar hop all afternoon. The entire tri-county population doesn’t huddle together downtown and root root root for the home team. Around here, it’s […]

Forget peanuts and Cracker Jacks, when we think of baseball, there’s another food which immediately come to mind: hot dogs. They seem as synonymous with the old ball game as strikeouts and home runs.

As a kid, we always knew when Easter was approaching because a certain Mr. E. Bunny would leave tufts of cotton around our house.

We love a good corned beef sando any day of the year, but it feels especially festive on St. Pat’s Day. Corned beef is as Irish as…well, it’s not really Irish at all. The salt cured beef is popular among Jewish, Caribbean and Filipino cuisines, but industrial production of corned beef started in England during […]

Detroit’s Best Breakfast Burritos

We don’t have a lot of time in the mornings. By the third hit of the snooze button, we’re struggling just to shower and clothe ourselves on time. We can’t lollygag over pancakes and hashbrowns.
