    There is an insanely dope soul food restaurant in Cork Town. Can't remember the name of it... Perhaps a Detroiter can chime in.

    slows is the spot in corktown.

    old miami, honest johns, the bronx, magestic -- all decent watering holes, just depends on how clean you like your bathrooms.

    the mayor's gonna go to jail, soon.

    oh, and watch yr back -- some friends (locals) got they shit took last night at gunpoint two blocks from the crib.

    thanks for the look out...
    excellent stuff to peruse on that link... sorry to hear about yer friends...
    hope to avoid that type of action...


  • not really looking for records.

    Dont know your situation but there are some super great record spots, some of which keep kinda late hours and well worth the time/finds ratio. At the very least if you like records stop by people's to talk shop with some cool locals and find some shit.
