    This spring’s warmer weather and longer days had us staring out the window longingly from our desk, daydreaming about an adventure to the tropical island pictured on our laptop background. Even if we could just get away for the afternoon - escape the screen for a few hours - and enjoy the sunshine right here in the city, we know we’d feel refre [...]

    A visit to The Skip is like a mini tropical vacation. But without any of the hassle of traveling to a far-flung locale, and where you can text your friends at 4 p.m. to arrange an impromptu Happy Hour. Basically paradise, found right here in Detroit. Although we don’t know this for sure, we like to think the name is a cheeky nod to the bar [...]

    Savannahblue is like the impossibly stylish, well put-together girl who seems at first glance like she must never do anything fun - can’t risk messing up her perfectly coiffed hair. But once you get to know her, you find that she loves football and running barefoot through the grass. Just because she looks nice doesn’t mean she’s stuffy. The [...]

    We may owe the birth of human civilization to beer. Not to overstate its importance in history, but people basically stopped living nomadically and established permanent communities once we figured out how to farm cereals for two essential staples: bread and beer. Anthropologists have found evidence of beermaking as far back as 9500 B.C. We did [...]

    Eating dinner at Katoi is not just about food. It’s an experience. When you step through the heavy industrial door, you leave Detroit and enter another world. You might feel like you’ve wandered into a cool, modern bar in Bangkok’s hip Thonglor district. Lighting seems to come from everywhere except overhead: glowing walls behind the bar, an [...]

    Deciding where to out to dinner with our crew can be a complicated affair. One person wants pizza. Another’s craving Chinese, or Mexican. And there’s always that one friend in the group who just wants to go for coneys. Again. Even when we can’t agree on on one type of cuisine, agreeing to meet at Halal Desi Pizza & Gyros in Hamtramck [...]

    We sometimes wish we could go back in time and shake the hand of Hernando de Soto, an explorer who arrived in what is now Tampa, Fla. in 1539. Hernando and his crew brought with them a small supply of friendly little animals we know as pigs. Upon their arrival, the pigs quickly turned feral, and folks in the south quickly learned that they could ca [...]

    The ancient city of Palenque was once a thriving Mayan metropolis. From 226 BC to 799 AD it was ruled by kings and scholars, who erected grand monuments and documented their culture in iconic hieroglyphs. Now a popular archeological site, Palenque is located in the Chipas region in the south of Mexico, an area which borders Guatemala and lies j [...]

    It used to be that the only time we ever visited LJ’s Sweetheart Bar was while we were waiting for a table at Slow’s or Sugar House. Sipping cheap beer in a dive bar prevented us from being stuck waiting outside in the cold, or smashed into a corner holding our coats and hats. But LJ’s is more than just Corktown’s waiting room. You coul [...]
