isn't that the place that's in parlor? it seems to work fine there.
That's fair. I think Westport is a little more intense, drunkenness-wise. But good point.

I love their Detroit style pizza, but all of them are excellent. If you haven't had it, try it!

We used to drive to Grandview just to get the full size Sicilian. Such a great spot!

Anyone know what happened to the Towneplace Suites by Marriott proposal? It was supposed to go on the vacant land at 40th and Central and was approved in 2019.

Aluminum siding coming off Fitz’s Blarney Stone to show brick underneath gives me a glimmer of hope for this city this morning.

Nice! Someone posted a historic pic of that building a while back. It used to be quite attractive.

I just hope Chez Charlie doesn't get the boot.

From what I have been told, the Blarney Stone has become less stabby.

But definitely within the last ten years a fella had his eye stabbed out there if memory serves...prior to the Chez purchase.

Michigan company purchases Alcazar Apartments. This is a Section 8 property that seems to always have a lot of calls to police. Not sure how change in ownership will affect the building or its residents.
