November 23 2015

Remember when I told you about the West Village and how I planned to come back to Craft Work for dinner? Well I did. During Happy Hour there are lots of cheap drinks and food to choose from. I opted for the cheap wine which was very good and the regular dinner which was also very good. The place has a nice cozy vibe with bookcases lining one wall and the bar on the opposite wall. I would definitely go back.

There is a new story under the Out There tab called “The Angel Bell” Hope you like it.

This is Rosie’s Diner on East Jefferson. It’s gotten national acclaim as one of the best restaurants in the country even though it’s a tiny hole-in-the-wall on the east side of Detroit. I think the secret is that they make everything from scratch. They grow the ingredients. And you know everything is fresh because they run out of stuff. That can be frustrating when half the items on the menu are not available but, hey, get there earlier next time. The only complaints I had were the coffee – way too weak – and it’s cold in there. They need one of those vestibule enclosures so that when someone opens the front door it doesn’t let in the gale force winds from the river. But, in general, this place is a gem.

There is a new story under the Life tab called “Charmed.” Hope you like it.

I attended ArtPrize in Grand Rapids and joined an outdoor Zumba class. It was all about the free t-shirt. Haven’t written in a while because I’ve been working on a longer piece which is still not finished. But I had to capture a really funny moment before I forgot it. It’s called “Fit Conversation” and I posted under the “Life” tab. Hope you like it.

Here is a picture of the happy petunias in my flower box.
They are obviously not worrying about summer winding down.
So maybe I won’t either.

My latest story is called “The Doll House” and it’s posted under the “Out There” tab.
Hope you enjoy it.

August is a great time to visit Eastern Market in Detroit.
The Michigan produce is abundant.
And even though the crowds are thick, I don’t get stressed.
How can one get uptight surrounded by all that beautiful food?

Sounds travel easily through the warm evening air.
Hope you enjoy my latest story, Summer Sounds, under the Life tab.

Liz at Red Hook 1My most recent story can be found under Urban Tales.
It’s called “On Call in Detroit.”
Hope you enjoy it.

Visited the West Village neighborhood today – a little strip of Agnes Street near Van Dyke.
Had a great cup of coffee and a chocolate croissant at the Red Hook Cafe.
Owner is a Brooklyn transplant if you can’t tell by the name.
Plan to come back for dinner at Craft Work.
