At dinnertime, there’s just one way to order: the all-you-can-eat meat-and-vegetable platter for $16.90 per person or the vegetarian platter for $14.90. Patrons of the Blue Nile, Taste of Ethiopia or Windsor’s Marathon are familiar with the routine: Little heaps of fabulous dishes are placed on a giant circle of spongy injera bread, which everyone shares. More injera is alongside, folded like napkins, to use as your eating utensil until you’re ready to eat the tablecloth. At lunchtime, you can keep the meal smaller and order one meat with two vegetables for $7.95. But what makes Addis Ababa different from other Ethiopian restaurants is that it has a take-out menu. Twelve ounces of the vegetable dishes are $2.95, meat $3.75, injera free. You could create your own feast at home or for a picnic. It’s open every evening and for lunch Tuesday through Saturday.
Kenny's Ribs and Chicken is home of the Chicago smoked ribs featuring the "St. Louis" rack and extremely popular rib tips. Kenny's was the winner of the 2004 Ribfest at Hart Plaza and has been winning Detroit every since. The restaurants are open and friendly with service that is inparalled. The ribs and chicken are married with Kenny Lewis' award winning spicy and mild sauces.
This storefront restaurant features the food of Nigeria, and the menu is organized around the starches: yams, cassava and rice, with a “stew” added. One popular dish, red stew, combines tomatoes, sweet red peppers, habanero chiles and onions, seasoned with ginger, thyme and curry powder — ingredients that repeat in Nigerian recipes, in various proportions. Finally, add in a meat (often goat, also beef and pork) along with legumes such as peanuts and beans. For the ridiculously low price of $1.25, try a meat, chicken or vegetable pie.
At Taste of Ethiopia, the temptation is not to dwell too long on the Ethiopian bread, injera, good as it is, but to see it as simply the vehicle for delivering the various we’ts (stews) and t’ibs (sautes) to your mouth. The flavors cooked up are so deep and so true, you may suspect you’ve never really experienced a lentil or a collard so intimately, and at unbeatable prices. A meat-and-vegetable platter for two, with salad, costs $17-$19.25 — less than the price for one person elsewhere. No booze, no smoking.

Is it a coincidence that the Z-Show 2 follows the season finale of AMC’s hit show The Walking Dead? This year they’re opening the gallery to multiple artists in a variety of mediums to feature nearly 50 pieces of zombified art from local and regional artists. Accompanying the art will be a slew of talented musical and dance acts to get even the stiffest of zombie bodies moving. Due to the graphic nature of the art and performances, this show is not recommended for young children. The show will be on display at the Pheonix Café in Hazel Park. Doors open at 8 p.m. There is a $5 entry fee.
You may know him as the founding member of the experimental, neo-psychedelic group Animal Collective. Now Avey Tare has partnered up with Angel Deradoorian, former member of Dirty Projectors, and former Ponytail drummer Jeremy Hyman to create a sound inspired by a freaky mesh of garage rock and ’60s novelty pop. With the release of their new album Enter the Slasher House, the trio is ready to prove its weirdness once and for all. Ponytail member Dustin Wong also plays this Friday at The Blind Pig. The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15.
After his highly anticipated major-label debut in February, Schoolboy Q is now on the Oxymoron World Tour.

Oxymoron features singles “Man of the Year,” “Collard Greens,” “Break the Bank” and “Yay Yay,” two of which have made it to the Billboard Hot 100 this year. Schoolboy Q will play this Friday at St. Andrews. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $22.50. (Photo via Facebook)
