Fill your bellies at Arts, Beats & Eats this weekend

In my opinion, Arts, Beats & Eats should be renamed to Eats, Arts & Beats. Why? Nothing against the “arts” and “beats” part of the festival, but I LOVE food. Good thing for me that there will be plenty of it at this year’s festival, which kicks off Friday and runs through Monday, Labor...

Go see ‘The Devil’s Double’ at the Main Art

I saw another great movie in a great venue over the weekend. And if you get the chance, you should also go to see “The Devil’s Double” at the Main Art in Royal Oak. To be honest, I hadn’t heard much of anything about the movie before we went to see it, but my...

Arts du Jour offers tasty festival preview

Getting ready for Arts, Beats and Eats? One thing you can count on, there will be plenty of good food. I enjoyed an appetizer of the “eats” portion of the festival last week at Arts du Jour. Fifty of metro Detroit’s finest restaurants, sweet shops and more provided samples to the estimated 1,100 people...

Pure Sports – Has it become just another unicorn in our society?

…as I sat at my dining room table, tweaking my fellow Fantasy Football opponents draft picks, I started throwing out some “old school” names telling guys to look for and draft. As an Ole Miss Rebel alum, I usually draft with my “heart” and not my “head” and end up owning guys who looked...

Sometimes, a dive makes food to-die-for

Don’t get me wrong. I love going out to eat at white tablecloth restaurants, dressing up and maybe even putting on makeup and heels, and ordering something from the wine list. Sometimes. But, the truth of it is, I love a good dive joint just as much, maybe more, than I like fine dining....

Fetishes: Strange love

I’ve known about certain fetishes for a long time. People being into, what I would consider, strange and unusual things. I consider myself to be “in the know” because hey, I watched HBO’s Real Sex. It became blazingly obvious how prevalent these fetishes are when one of the biggest searches that landed people on...
