We’ve Got Reach

Anyone who uses “reached out” in your magazine (or anywhere) should be fired (“Polishing a Greasy Spoon,” December 2014). How about “called” or “contacted?” Reach Out (And Touch Someone) was a 1970s phrase to sell long distance, and should be retired.
— Peggy Smith, Troy

 

Déjà Benno

“Déjà Food” (November 2014) brought back memories. Benno was a stickler for reservations. We saw him refuse to seat patrons who had no reservations, even though there were empty tables. His signature dessert, Omelet Stephanie, was to die for.
— Ronald M. Horwitz, Farmington Hills

 

Hillmer’s Husdon’s

Really enjoyed your story of Hudson’s in 1959 (“The Way It Was,” December 2014). Davis B. Hillmer (the photographer) was my great uncle, of whom my mom named me after. Great memories of talking with him.
— Davis B. Sabo

 

Missed the Cut?

I was surprised Sebastian Jackson of the Social Grooming Club didn’t make the list (“Well-Groomed Gents,” November 2014). Hour missed the mark.
— Tim Sullivan

 

Mixed on Merrill

My favorite restaurant in Birmingham (“Reviving a Classic,” December 2014).
— Robert Caffrey 

// I found your “rave” review of the new 220 Merrill curious! I do not know a single person who loved this place that are happy with the redo. … Having tried it twice, I will never go back!
— Bonnie Parker

 

Doctor, Doctor

As a member of United Voices of Detroit, I had the honor of performing with the Detroit Medical Orchestra (“Laughing Lawyers, Medical Musicians,” November 2014). They are superb, and the brilliant direction of Elliott Moore is mesmerizing!
— Margo Easton, Wayne State University

 

Dogging It

Facebook comments about our December cover:  

// Need those shoes! Super cute!
— Elizabeth Robbins Sabourin

// Wish you would have used a mutt. Hope he was at least a rescue dog!
— Sharon Juergens Korn
