Your birthday wishes for Detroit // Detroit 75 Kitchen // Mitsos

Today Devon O’Reilly joins Jer and we have two.. well, two and a half topics. In an extended version of “Where we’ve been,” we talk about trying Detroit 75 Kitchen in Southwest Detroit and food trucks in general in Metro Detroit. After all, that guy is all over my TikTok and Instagram. Then, Devon gets into his discovery of Mitsos, a greek food place, in Eastern Market. 14:52 Finally, on the week of Detroit’s 322nd birthday, we put it out there to our listeners and fans: Money being no...

New restaurants galore (and is KISS overrated?)

Jer is from the east side, and Devon from the west side. They meet near the middle to discuss what to know and where to go in Metro Detroit. We lose power near the end of the show, but keep on plugging forward.  Where we’ve been: 01:40 – Jer Beat Drake to SheWolf in Detroit’s Midtown by a few hours. Worth it? 06:08 – Devon went to the new Mezcal location in Midtown and has a full review. We also get into how just one block, or around a corner, can make all the difference in Detroit and...

On Fishbones; Hot honey on pizza; and NYC

Today's show covers a lot of ground. First, where we've been. We talk about Fishbones, still tickin' after all these years in Detroit's Greektown. Then Brooklyn/NYC topics. A fun thing, discussing Detroit-style pizza there and whether or not you're team hot honey. Then more serious as we get into what real population density looks like, the hard decisions for development where in order to build affordably there have to be subsidies, and a different way to look at transit (which ties into that...

313 Day is coming

313 Day is coming! It's so official there's a proclamation by the city council president, celebrating March 13th and Detroit. We talk about some of our favorite things around town, near and far. Jer went out to Mia's bakery in Madison Heights. Devon tried fancy coffee mocktails at Dessert Oasis in downtown Detroit. A vampyre, anyone? 313 Day has a series of events around town, I share some discounts and deals from Buddy's, Eastern Market Brewing, and more... plus Red Hook is opening in Midtow...

10 Things we're positive about

It's been a tough week, so let's look at the positive side of things for this Friday. Jer and Devon take turns looking at the positive to end the week. Sorry this is in your feeds a little late; technical issues. Also, as a reminder, we take Federal holidays off - it's Presidents Day on Monday - so our next episode will be on Tuesday. We do this to support our tiny team, as the grind of a daily podcast is intense. Places we've been to: Gateaux in Dearborn; Urbanrest in Ferndale As always -...

Detroit is the best around

Busy show. Where we've been? Karl's in the Siren Hotel has the best Maurice Salad, if you want to get your retro Hudson's vibe on. Plus, Le Rouge Boulangerie in GP Park brings the bread in a big way.

Mike Epps is opening up a comedy spot in the old Punchbowl Social. Should be an improvement for a number of reasons. Detroit is...
