Food Writer to Go

Posted By on Tue, Jan 14, 2014 at 3:43 PM

She didn't say goodbye to us, but longtime Detroit food writer and blogger Nicole Rupersburg took a powder earlier this month, moving out to Las Vegas, where she now works for Vegas Magazine. Rupersburg not only wrote her own food blog for years, Eat It Detroit, but the site never had any shortage of content. That's because as a blogger Rupserburg was voluble, opinionated and profane. We often looked forward to her summaries and reactions of our annual Best of Detroit list. Also, whenever a food-oriented media event was announced to the press, even if it was just chips and sandwiches on offer, chances were good you'd run into her at the table. She was friendly with us, and her writing even appeared in MT over the years, including her tell-all piece, "I Was a Dirty Show Model." But even when she was just chasing a paycheck by writing reviews for a money-grubbing Detroit weekly, she did it with a certain verve and style that was very Detroit. A shame to lose that energy. Farewell, Nicole, and best wishes!
