21 of metro Detroit's coolest things to get delivered to you in quarantine

If we hear the term “new normal” one more time during this coronavirus quarantine, we're gonna spit. We've exhausted pizza nights and phone games, and you bet your ass we're not ordering from Amazon because they don't have what we want anyway. What we want is to break free and shop and eat to our heart's content at our favorite metro Detroit spots. While this may not be an option for weeks, at least, there are plenty of businesses working hard to stay afloat to deliver the things we need — and want — right to our doorsteps. From dildos and cake, to comic books and beer, and records with wine, these are some of the coolest things metro Detroiters can order for delivery while we collectively wait out our isolation.

Ferndale Project
567 Livernois, Ferndale; 248-556-5512; ferndaleproject.com/
Beer. We. Need. Beer. If we can’t pop a cold one with the boys, we at least want to pop a cold one with our cats, which is what the Ferndale Project is all about. The Eastern Market Brewing Co. offshoot had the unfortunate experience of opening right when the whole pandemic thing took over our lives. But that didn’t stop the hopped-up crew from continuing serving up frosty IPAs, pasties, bags of coffee, and dog treats to the beer-thirsty masses. To accommodate the demand, they’ve pivoted to a curbside pick-up and delivery format. And good news: you can order online and their delivery radius is 25 miles outside of Ferndale.

Good Cakes and Bakes
19363 Livernois Ave., Detroit; 313-468-9915 goodcakesandbakes.com
This Livernois Avenue organic bakery has been in the spotlight since it opened — and they've stepped up to make our sweet dreams come true during this nightmare. You can order some of their signature sweets for delivery, like personal pan versions of their lemon gooey butter cake, strawberry crunch cake and 7up pound cake slices, as well as cupcakes and cookies. But seeing that we might be staying home a bit longer than we had hoped, you might as well order a whole cake, because you can do that, too. Vegan? They’ve got you covered with whole cakes in red velvet, double chocolate, carrot, and lemon pound cake varieties.

MotorCity Wine x Third Man Records 
1949 Michigan Ave., Detroit; 313-483-7283; motorcitywine.com
Spring is here, which means one thing: fire pit-lit nights with a bottle of vino on the music-filled MotorCity Wine patio. Welp. It's going to be a minute before we can get wine wasted in public, but MCW is offering delivery and curbside pick-up Wednesday through Saturday. Folks are asked to text 313-483-7283 with their name. MCW will call you back to assemble your order, which will be delivered after pickup times, which are between 4-6 p.m. Cutoff for same-day orders is 4 p.m. There's a six-bottle minimum (they've got bottles starting at $10!) for Southwest, Boston Edison, and the Villages. If you're outside of their radius, just ask and they'll see what they can arrange. 
Oh! MCW has also partnered with Third Man Records to offer wine and record pairings, because we miss record shopping, too. Captain Beefheart, France Gall, and Mdou Moctar are among some of the tunes on the menu.

SMPFLD 
313-285-9564; smplfd.com 
We might be depressed and sticking to the same set of sweats, but that doesn’t mean we don’t deserve some Detroit-born snark to spice up our WFH fits. Detroit screen printers at SMPFLD have complied with CDC requirements with a one-person skeleton crew to bring you the tees you need. They’ve restocked some favorites (peep the student debt longsleeve or the Hamtramck Disneyland graphic tee) and they’re taking custom screen printing orders, too, with specials designated for out-of-work industry folks.

Anyway, leave it to the Detroit’s dildo duchess, Zoë Ligon, and her online emporium of vibes, wands, rings, and all things butt stuff: Spectrum Boutique. Not only is there toys, lubes, and BDSM gear galore, but there’s a ton of books about sex, trauma, LGBTQ+ issues, mental illness and intimacy, and more. Did we mention butt stuff?

We’re all super thankful our Zoom meetings don’t offer a smell-o-vision feature, because some of us might be pretty dang ripe. Rochester-based soap maker Moon River Soap Company is shipping out its signature omega rich olive oil soaps so we can clean up our quarantine acts. Each hand-poured bar is made with omega rich olive oil, botanical oils, and pure essential oils. In addition to bars, Moon River is offering foam soap, serums, balms, body butter, and gift sets.
