Dressed up dogs with all the fixings.
Omelettes are the highlight on the breakfast menu. Diner-style sandwiches and dinners for under $10. A gem tucked away in a strip mall.
This slider stop is a venerable west side institution, with some saying you haven’t lived until you’ve tried one of Bates’ “gut bombs.” The blandishments are few — just the essentials: salt, pepper, mustard and ketchup — but it doesn’t get any more authentic than this. Great for going alone, eating at the counter and rubbing elbows with the people.
Comet Burger's concept of the '50s is pink vinyl and stainless steel chairs, Formica table-tops decorated with little boomerangs (you'll recognize them when you see them), album covers on the walls, lots of TVs and, of course, sliders and malts. Try the single and double sliders with grilled onions for improved flavor or the moster burger if you're really hungry.
From greasy spoon to cozy little cafe. The neighborhood folks know where to go for fresh, imaginative salads and sandwiches. Hearty breakfast specials.
One of the most popular U of M sports bars, especially as far as the athletes are concerned. Built inside a bowling alley, the locals have been coming in for years. Great food and reasonable prices.

Hockeytown is synonymous with good beer and good times, so why should the BrewHaHa be any different? The event starts by teasing the palate with a firkin happy hour, which will include three 4-ounce servings of custom brews made exclusively for the event. Following that will be an optional tour of the Joe and a five-course gourmet meal with beer pairings. In addition, MotorCity Casino Hotel is offering a special rate with complimentary transportation to and from the event.
The first DMAs were held in 1992, and since their inception, they’ve featured some of Detroit’s most notable artists onstage, including such national acts as Eminem, Kid Rock, Martha Reeves, Ted Nugent, Smokey Robinson and Insane Clown Posse. However, regional performers make up the majority of talented nominees, and the 2014 award season looks exciting with a promising list of performers in categories that range from industrial to R&B.
The San Francisco trio’s experimental, freeweheeling take on guitar-based pop (punctuated by frontwoman Satomi Matsuzaki’s crazed, childlike vocal delivery) has made them a favorite of the likes of Pitchfork for years. Call it art rock, call it no wave, call it indie prog, call it whatever — with every release the band attempts to sound completely different, and in that inconsistency they are nothing if not consistent (hell, the band is notorious for sounding completely different at the end of a song than they did at the begining). It’s fun, yet difficult stuff — right at home in an art museum.
live music, fabulous hors d’oeuvres, complimentary wine, cash bar, early buying opportunities. Plus see this year’s pristine vintage automobile display. Benefits the Detroit Area Art Deco Society.
With the warmth of spring comes outdoor drinking season, and the Majestic needs your help celebrating the opening of the Alley Deck, with tasty drinks, delicious eats and live jams from the local retro band the Highballs. The 28 brown and white specials include Jim Beam’s Devil Cut, Remy 1738 Cognac, Chivas 18-year, Absolut Vodka, Valentine Vodka, Avión Silver Tequila and many more. Designated driver tickets are $5, and a cash bar is available if the 12-sample tickets aren’t quite enough for you.
This electro-pop duo played its first show on New Year’s Eve at the Old Miami, and has since clearly been building up to something amazing. Made up of singer-songwriter Laura Finlay and beat master Eddie Logix (of MidCoast Most and Progress Report), Sleepless Inn is finally ready to wake up Detroit with the release of its debut EP, The Rainbow Room. Come get wrapped up in lush, dreamy sounds that’ll have you tossing and turning all night long. Loretta Lucas and Humons also play.
