  • Johnny Noodle King opens Friday

    A couple months ago, we had a nice long chat with Jacques Driscoll of Green Dot Stables. At that time, Jacques was hard at work on opening his new place, Johnny Noodle King on Fort Street. He had already test-marketed the craft ramen-style concept with one-off events, and told us, "We did three pop-ups and we sold out within, like, two hours. It’s not as approachable as sliders, but I’m also confident that once people try it for the first time I have a feeling they’re gonna be pretty happy."

  • Satanic Temple's devil statue won't be Detroit's first

    Holy rollers are rocked by news that the Satanic Temple will open an outpost in our fair city, complete with a statue of the horned one. The group peddles its humanistic "religion" as a way to challenge the cretinous brand of Christian exceptionalism that has swept the country over the last few decades, and we think they're an amusing bunch of satirists with a message that seems more reasonable than many a faith.

  • Native Detroiter Richard Kiel, aka "Jaws," dead at 74

    Richard Kiel, best known for his performances as "Jaws" in the 1970s James Bond movies, is dead at 74. He was born in Detroit in 1939. Though he moved away at age 9, we've always liked the fact that he had Detroit roots. And we just wrote about him a few weeks ago, in our roundup of movies about football, for his excellent performance as the gentle giant in 1970's The Longest Yard. Rest in peace, Richard.

  • 'Gonzo' in Detroit today seeking the best neighborhood bar

    OK, so this guy, John "Gonzo" Gonzalez is entertainment reporter for Mlive, and he's touring the state looking for the best neighborhood bars. (Sounds like a familiar pursuit. We've been doing that in Detroit for years, without benefit of a chauffeured bus or expense account!) Today he touches down in metro Detroit, and he'll be hitting Cadieux Cafe at 4:30 p.m., Nancy Whiskey at 6 p.m., and Moose Winooski’s in Clawson at 7:30 p.m.
