Bar
“"Detroit's Oldest Party", No-frills, neighborhood hangout since 1902 with live music, weekly drink specials & a covered patio. If you are into The Walking Dead, they turn down the lights and put new episodes up on a projector when they are airing every Sunday. A pretty unique way to watch the show amongst other people.”

Restaurant
“Excellent brunch. Extensive build your own mimosa or bloody mary bar (you can fill yourself up just on this!), but the food is excellent as well. Does not take reservations, so there is often a wait, but it's worth it and you can drink and eat at the bar while waiting. ”

“Pop-up food cart only open on Thursdays, spring to fall. They have plate-lunch style dinners each week--one vegan, one not--along with wine, beer and bonfire. A super community heart-warming atmosphere where everyone's welcome. All locally sourced ingredients, and magical.”

Point of Interest
Museum
“The last game ever played in the stadium was in 1999. Go see what is left of the grounds which is basically just a flag pole. It is currently in the process of being turned into a neighborhood ballpark.”
