Restaurant Week!

There's a lot to love about Restaurant Week!  It's so great to have an opportunity to enjoy some of the city's finer dining options without breaking the bank (all participating restaurants have a $27 prix fixe menu) AND it's great to be reminded of the plethora of fine dining Detroit has to offer.  During the first Restaurant Week last fall we feasted at the Whitney, and last night we visited 24Grille in the new(ish)ly renovated Westin Book Cadillac.  Both were delectable!  We chose the 24Grille this time because it offered one of the the tastier-sounding vegetarian options (Himalayan Cabbage Rolls - mmmmm!), although every restaurant participating in this edition of Restaurant Week included at least one vegetarian option, which we greatly appreciated.  Anyway there are still three nights left, so if you haven't already, check out the menus and make your reservation!

Also, we loved reading about all your favorite things to do in Eastern Market!  Thank you to everyone who commented to be entered to win one of our Detroit Map Totes.  The winner (chosen at random) of this giveaway was Megan who says that "Because cheese and wine are my weaknesses, Cost Plus and R. Hirt serve my needs well!"  We agree on both of those counts!  Megan, please email Emily ( to find out how to claim your prize.  Look for more giveaways soon!

Wednesday Giveaway!

We love shopping at Eastern Market all year long (especially to get cheese from R. Hirt Jr., soup at Russell Street Deli, and McClure's Pickles - yum!) but at this time of year we start getting super excited for leisurely Saturdays riding our bikes there, eating breakfast, buying produce and flowers, and running into everyone we know!

Tell us your favorite thing about the market - leave it in a comment below to be entered in our giveaway to win one of our Detroit Map Totes (perfect for toting home your market haul!). We'll select a winner at random on 4/21.
