More Music, Please

Let me preface this by saying Hour shines a bright light on a city that typically gets a bad rap. The only qualm I have is that aside from event listings in the back, there’s nothing about music. Detroit was the home of Motown and still has a very active music scene. We have historic venues like the Fox Theatre and The Fillmore. There are great local bands coming out such as Wilson, Suicide Machines, I Prevail, Poor Richards Almanac, and Cymbals — to name a few. Southeast Michigan’s music scene never ceases to astonish, and I’d love to see more of it.

Hoof it to Mulefoot … and Beyond

Great article! (“Field Trip,” February 2015). I really enjoyed the mention of Romeo and Almont. I’m glad to hear The Mulefoot Gastropub is doing so well!

White at Wright

I noticed the same thing (“Of Race and Restaurants,” February 2015) when dining at Wright & Co. last year. My dining companion was one of only three people in the entire place that wasn’t white! Very sad.

Blog Inspired by Hour

For several years, I had been collecting pages from Hour Detroit — showcases on locally owned restaurants, shops, and bars — and putting them in a binder as reminders of all the places I’d never been but wanted to try. But they were more of a collection of somedays and maybes. That changed last February. I came up with a challenge — 100placesinthed.wordpress.com — to visit 100 establishments I had never been to in Oakland, Macomb, and Wayne counties. I hoped to break out of the same-old, same-old rut — and blog to inspire others who might be stuck gravitating toward safeness and familiarity. I thought that there weren’t enough non-national-chain establishments in the area … how wrong I was! Completing this challenge (with a visit to Grand Trunk Pub), I’ve barely scratched the surface! I re-subscribed to Hour to stay abreast of all the wonderful places you highlight.
