Dragonmead Brewery offers tasty tour

I had the opportunity to tour Dragonmead Brewery & Pub in Warren the other day. What a great operation! This place has the feel of an old fashioned English pub. Wood accents everywhere, with an oak wraparound style bar. Service is friendly, and the beer is excellent. On any given day, some 40 taps...

If you’re anything like me, you’ve just made yourself a caucasian and are pondering how to manage another weekend full of music in and around Detroit. Last weekend’s abundance of fests made it easy.

Michigan Craft Beer Stroll is tomorrow

A few weeks ago, my husband was reading his craft beer or whatever magazine. “I bet you can’t name the top five states for microbreweries,” he challenged me. “California, Oregon, Washington, Colorado and Michigan,” I responded, almost immediately. He stared at me, mouth agape. “That’s so hot,” were the next words out of his...

Take a bike tour of Detroit Saturday

I’m going to be very sad on Saturday. Why? Because I have to miss the annual Tour de Troit, the two-wheeled tour of the city, due to a healing leg injury. I’ve been doing the Tour de Troit since 2005, the first fall I lived in the city. My husband and I were still...

Good In Bed

We all like to think that we are fairly accomplished and are able to please our partners in the bedroom, and some of us really are. Most likely, our efforts don’t go unnoticed or unappreciated.

Royal Oak gets closer to getting around on two wheels safely and conveniently

I’ve waxed enthusiastic about a program to make Royal Oak less motorized and more, well, non-motorized in the past, so it should come as no surprise that I’m thrilled officials are really starting to consider coming up with a plan that will promote getting around on your feet, on two wheels, and to use...

Goat Meat Taco

Hiller’s Market had a goat promotion a few weeks back. No live goats in the store or anything like that, but some good deals on goat meat, plus goat cheese and yogurt—which, by the way, are both lactose free (WIN). They had a Greek goat yogurt (not sure whether or not the goats were...
