When this place first opened it was really overhyped and waiting times would be hours long. The hype has kind of died down, I don't think it's the absolute best BBQ I've had but I still think it is a Detroit essential.

From the chef that started Takoi, his new restaurant is even better. It's also a 5 min walk from my house. The food is mostly vegetarian but they do have some meat entrees, everything is woodfire cooked. Honestly, the flavors were unreal to me. The exterior is a nondescript old warehouse building but interior has been really elevated and unique. It's new and popular, so the wait is usually long but you can give them your number and then come back and wait at my house for a text .

Oh, the iconic abandoned Michigan Central Station. Back when I was younger there were secret ways to get inside, but since then they have beefed up security and I would urge you not to try and get in because it is much easier to get caught. Nowadays, people just hang out front in Roosevelt Park and take pictures. More recently, Ford Motor company did what evening thought somebody night do eventually, and bought the giant building and is in the process spending millions of dollars fixing it up to be used once again.

Our house is situated on the western fringe of Woodbridge which is another historical neighborhood that has held stable through the rough years. Walk around the blocks towards the northeast and southeast to see some old Victorian houses with lots of character. This includes the Lorax house at 4759 Trumbull Ave, The House from Up at 4722 Avery St, and many others. Even Tony Hawk recently bought a house off Tumbull! Don't venture west of Grand River Avenue though, that is the border of our neighborhood and things can get rough pretty quick in Core City neighborhood.

Expanding and improving every year, the Riverwalk is happening in the summer. It features great views, fishing, parks and food, it will eventually connect Downtown to Belle Isle but is about 3/4 there at the moment.
A hidden gem in Detroit. There is an aquarium and conservatory, but this entire island is a big park where you can bike or have a picnic. You can also rent kayaks, play racquetball and other funtivities. There are beaches to swim as well. You will get one of the best views of Detroit, the Ambassador Bridge and Windsor from the west side of the Island.

Can you swim in the Detroit River? Yes! Don't worry, Belle Isle is way upriver of all the industrial junk spewing stuff downriver, and you get one of my favorite views of the city and the Ambassador Bridge from this beach.

If you have ANY interest in funk/soul/Motown music, then you should come here. Many of the great musicians of these genres recorded their albums here

Small art gallery open on the weekends. They are most known for the place where you can get your aura photographed. Supposedly the color surrounding your head represents your mood.

If you happen to be visiting on a full moon, you may have the chance to experience a Full Moon Party at the Art Park. During the warmed seasons, they have huge parties with hundreds of people in a truly Detroit fashion that last until daybreak. There is usually a bonfire, music, and art sculptures, including a giant metal globe overlooking the park that shoots fire. You can visit the park during the day and look at the graffiti and sculptures made out of random junk but if you happen to be in town for the monthly full moon, you must try to attend one of the Full Moon Parties. It is really a unique Detroit experience.

There aren't many bookstores around like this anymore, let alone one that is one of the largest in the country. They have an estimated 1 million books in stock, with a large collection of rare and used titles. In a 2011 article from the online magazine Salon, the store was described as "one of the largest and strangest collections in North America"

This store can help in a pinch with just about any basic daily needed household item. When I go in and ask if they have something, more often than not they have it and at a good price.

So, this place is somewhat pricey for a grocer, but it is either this or drive to Dearborn to go to Meijer/Kroger/Walmart or pay way too much at Whole Foods.
