Buy a damn book and actually read the damn thing
    Don’t worry. You’re not alone. We have mountains of half-read books and stacks of “oh, I’ve been meaning to read those,” too. So, how about you take some time out of an afternoon and lose yourself in the labyrinthian John K. King Rare and Used Books or literally any one of metro Detroit’s many independent bookstores that are keeping our brains fed during the pandemic? Remember, read responsibly.

1. Polish Village Cafe
    2990 Yemans St., Hamtramck; 313-874-5726; polishvillage.cafe 
    “Nice old world styled restaurant. And I must say has the best be Polish food around. The wait staff is great. They always check to make sure you have everything to keep you happy. And it's always packed!!!!  so order carry out if you don't mind dining out. It's just a little place. Get anything it is guaranteed to be good, I promise. City chicken, pierogies, stuffed cabbage like grandma used to make.... unless you're getting a combo have the person with you order something different and just share. Serving sizes are good and there will be more than enough to take home for leftovers! Try the dill pickle soup as well. Hope you enjoy this place as much as I do.” — Tiffany M. on Yelp

Filling our camera roll with the perfect blacklight selfie at Deluxx Fluxx
    Right now, our iPhone camera roll is a sad document of life in isolation: bored dog pics, unattractive photos of food we made, and screenshots of sweatsuits we look forward to owning. What we’re really craving is that strong selfie game. Specifically, 90 attempts at nailing the perfect blacklight selfie at Deluxx Fluxx, because it takes real skill to not look like an iron-deficient alien with glowing teeth.
