Hello, all! Happy Wednesday! I hope you are having  a lovely week and getting some exploring in. I try to remind myself that even weeknights can be special, a chance to discover somewhere new.

This past weekend, I was down in the D for a Tigers game. One of my friends works in the Crain’s office complex, which is amazing, because it means we have its free, gated parking at our disposal. Her work is about a three quarter of a mile’s walk from Comerica Park; it honestly doesn’t feel even that far. I tell her she can never stop working there!

Because of our parking spot’s close proximity to Eastern Market, we decided to meet our other friends who were attending the game with us there. Before pre-game lunch and drinks, we stumbled across a charming market called DeVries and Co. It’s been around since 1887, providing gourmet cheeses, meats, jams, pickles, and other items, many of which are locally made. One more gem in the city!

I was super excited when I saw advertisements for the Better Health that recently opened on Hall Road in Shelby Township. Finally, a Whole-Foods-ish store in my neighborhood! I’d never heard of Better Health before this, but it’s a Michigan chain, with 13 other locations in the state, most of which are focused in the Metro-Detroit area. The Shelby Township shop is a beautiful shrine to natural-clean-foodie-organic goodness – the kind of place I could spend way, way too much money in.
