"Our specialty is BBQ ribs, but our broasted chicken is also the best -- all served in a comfortable and pleasant family atmosphere. We've been in business 23 years! Good food and service; lunch specials from $4.95 (11 a.m.-4 p.m., Mon.-Fri.). Movie and dinner packages available."
"Bad Brads BBQ has one simple goal: produce the best possible BBQ everyday. Our philosophy of "From our Smoker to your Plate" is a passion that begins everyday at 5 a.m. Bad Brad's way is "slow and low" beef brisket and pork shoulder steeped in fruit wood & hickory smoked for up to 14 hours. Our everything from scratch kitchen is a labor of love that begins with a respect for great ingredients, attention to detail and a refusal to take short cuts. We truly believe you can taste the difference."
Anyone can show up here. Detroit's only late night jazz club serving up Cajun catfish and red beans and rice all night long. It's not common to find a bar where everyone seems to know each other and yet newcomers don't feel excluded. Dozens of regulars turn up Thursdays for the open mic jazz jam sessions. Bert's serves the music fans bargain-price soul food from rows of steam tables: meat and two sides for nine bucks, or up to $25 for a whole slab of ribs. In keeping with Bert's bare-bones, working-class atmosphere, their food is more down-home than much of the soul food you find in restaurants, which has often been upgraded from its humble origins.
The decorations are simple because this place is meant to be for carryout only. Big Fellas Barbecue and Bakery wants its customers to keep their focus strictly on the food. Greg and Valena Cade, both food-service veterans, opened Big Fellas to show off their cooking talents while fulfilling the soul food needs of hungry diners on the east side of Detroit. Big Fellas serves barbecued ribs, chicken, seafood, sandwiches, salads, soups and homemade desserts. The owners recommend that first-time diners try their rib snack, soul style wing dings or jumbo butterfly shrimp. To assure freshness and good quality, dishes are prepared right when you order.
Menu aims for a down-home feel, but the beers are contemporary craft. Quirky interior. Very good word-of-mouth.
Where the taste of Texas meets the fun of Mexico! Sizzling fajitas!

"Family sports bar with world-famous Buffalo chicken wings with 12 signature sauces. Large screen satellite TV's, pool tables, darts, video games. Live bands every Wednesday and Saturday."

Alternative hip-hop has never been better, that is, since the reunion of Jurassic 5. Following their 2007 break-up, it was a quiet six years for Jurassic fans, until the boys reunited for last year’s Coachella festival. After playing a few shows together, Jurassic 5 announced their “Word of Mouth Reunion Tour” earlier this year, complete with a Royal Oak pit stop. If their new song “The Way We Do It” is any indication of what’s to come for the group, fans have a lot to look forward to. In the music video, the boys, sounding better than ever, go stomping through Colorado’s infamous Red Rocks Amphitheatre in the dead of winter. Wrapped up from head to toe, they throw down lines like they were never on hiatus, showcasing their ceaseless talent.
The Hard Lessons will be hitting the stage at Magic Bag this Saturday in celebration of their newly released album Arms Forrest. For these Detroit natives the release of Arms Forrest brings about a change for the band with songs ranging from raw-guitar to slinky-dance-groove tracks. All-in-all, their transformation proves for a great show full of heart and relatable lyrics that are sure to tug at the heart strings of any Detroiter.

Come out and enjoy a night of kings and queens, princesses and duels at the Redford Theaters showing of the 1987 classic, The Princess Bride. This PG rated film is full of hilarity and romance from beginning to end and will spice up any average summer night. Don’t forget to hit the concession stand, which prices are distinctly low and the popcorn is always delicious.
You can bring your best friend but, in this case, the ‘BFF’ does not stand for best friend forever. No, this is the one and only Best Fest Forever Fest! It’s a daylong festival celebrating Michigan’s diverse community of musicians and artists. Hoping to build a stronger, more balanced scene in Detroit (and also in the galaxy!) the lineup prioritizes women, POC, and LGBTQ performers. Celebrate progress with delicious food, good friends, a fun clothes swap, and tunes from several DJs and bands. The fun runs from 3 p.m. to 2 a.m.
