By now, almost everyone has had a Popeyes Spicy Chicken sandwich or has attempted to wait in a 30-minute line for one. The sandwich was discontinued after its summer release, probably due to the insane demand, but was brought back permanently this fall.

Top of the agenda for residents? A chance to sound off on the long-debated median along Livernois Avenue, which has been a source of back-and-forth for Detroiters for years. The City of Detroit Planning Department is looking to take feedback on possibly removing the median completely and instead widening the street or widening the sidewalk.
A community meeting will be held on August 1 for residents in and around the Livernois-6 Mile neighborhoods to discuss design-centric improvements to the area.

District 2 residents are invited to discuss a pair of proposed streetscapes along the Livernois Avenue corridor during a community meeting with the City of Detroit Planning and Development Department Thursday night.

If today, right now and for the time being you’re single, you already know Instagram is about to become annoying next Wednesday. You should put the phone down.
Truth be told, being single is awesome in a city like Detroit, where there’s more to do than one might expect. So instead of moping around or eating a quart of ice cream by yourself, enjoy these fun things for Detroit singles this Valentine’s Day.
Our very own Baker’s Keyboard Lounge got a little love on “Jeopardy” Monday night.
During the first night of the long-running game show’s Tournament of Champions, in which past winners are invited back for another showdown, the northwest Detroit jazz club (featured in our District 2 video on The Neighborhoods, of course) was the subject of a $600 tile in the category “Americana.” It was the second question of the night.
At The Neighborhoods, we’re interested in hearing from everybody in Detroit about what matters most to you.
