Do you hate the Livernois island? Talk to the mayor about it

A community meeting will be held on August 16 for residents in and around Livernois-McNichols to discuss proposed streetscape improvements to the area.

Grindtime Fitness on Detroit’s west side wants to change your life

A month after opening his gym on the west side, owner John Smith already had a waiting list of potential new members.

Tucked away in a black and red building on Wyoming Avenue, Smith and his team at the newly opened Grindtime Fitness have already outgrown this space. Four years ago, Smith only had one client. Today, he and his team are helping more than 300 Detroiters get in shape. 


Paczki, but with a Southern twist

All hail this day of gluttony, otherwise known as Paczki Day here in the Motor City. 

The Polish tradition of Fat Tuesday, carried over to this side of the pond by Poles who settled on the east side and in Hamtramck, stems from families who rushed to rid their homes of baked goods ahead of Lenten season. Most people refer to them as jelly doughnuts but they are so much more. (And please, please don’t forget that paczek is the singular and paczki is plural.)
