Posted on November 6th, 2014 in Detroit, Detroit Events, Detroit Food, Detroit Music, Detroit Sports
I was recently asked by a friend, ‘How would you spend the day in Detroit?’ Ironically, because I live here, this isn’t a question I get to consider very often. You see, while there are more things than I can count that I love to do, I get to do them when I feel like doing them. But because there are some [...][...]

Crossing the Finish Line as a Community: How the Race is Run & Won in Detroit!

Posted on October 15th, 2014 in Detroit, Detroit Events, Detroit Sports
As of October of last year my Aunt ‘J’ had run in 31 Marathons. I haven’t been able to keep track of how many she’s done in the 365 days since then, but I do know she’s lacing ‘em up once again for The Detroit Free Press Marathon this weekend. I also know that I come nowhere near that number. I could go [...][...]

World Cup Pairings: Where to Go for Saturday’s Games in Detroit!

Posted on June 27th, 2014 in Detroit, Detroit Events, Detroit Food, Detroit Sports
Alright. If you don’t follow soccer, here’s the deal. Essentially, for the rest of the world, the World Cup is, as José Simián puts it, “Like the Super Bowl. Every day. For a whole month. For the whole world.” (Which could also be why it happens only once every four years.) And while, all around the world, [...][...]

Classic Detroit: A New Year, a New Event, and an Old Tradition to Celebrate!

Posted on December 23rd, 2013 in Detroit, Detroit Events, Detroit Sports
It’s true, that saying, ‘you can take the girl out of the U.P., but you can’t take the U.P. out of the girl.’ And the Yoop and Downtown Detroit are the two places I call ‘home.’ I’m visiting the winter wonderland of my childhood during the Holidays (and I couldn’t be more excited about it), but I’ll [...][...]

Thanksgiving is just one week away, and when you live in Downtown Detroit it’s never too early to start planning. Not because you have to, but because it’s fun to start thinking about all of the fun you’re going to have. I’m a big planner. But the first Thanksgiving I lived Downtown, I didn’t plan on being [...][...]

Living Downtown Detroit: What You Can’t See on a Map

Posted on November 5th, 2013 in Detroit, Detroit Events, Detroit Sports, Lofts News
A lot of people ask me why I live Downtown Detroit. Some of them know I work 35 miles outside of the city, doing a reverse commute to the suburbs. Some of those who ask have no idea that I don’t work for any one of the many companies that have headquarters, or who have moved their HQ, Downtown. This time of year, [...][...]
