This week, our readers were most interested in a local ice cream shop's refusal to serve the men and women who protect and serve while they're wearing body armor.

A 2018 Metro Times story of a then-Michigan Senate candidate saying he wished The Handsmaid's Tale was real life saw quite the boost this week. It's safe to assume the recent state of political affairs has something to do with that.

All of that and a little more. Here are the top stories of the week:

10. "Hamtramck’s New Dodge Lounge under new ownership"

9. "Complaint alleges Detroit Institute of Arts does not qualify for reaccreditation"

8. "One of Detroit’s top cannabis chefs and journalists are throwing a secret THC-infused pizza party"

7. "Metro Detroit’s Cristy Lee revives Michigan homes in new HGTV series ‘Steal This House’"

6. "Video: Michigan Senate candidate wishes 'The Handmaid's Tale' was real life"

5. "Activists cover anti-abortion billboard with pro-choice message in Detroit"

4. "Detroit alternative July 4 event asks, ‘What to the Negro is the Fourth of July?’"

3. "New restaurant Petty Cash opens on Detroit’s historic Avenue of Fashion"
