Detroit Link Love

It’s been a crazy few weeks for me with a lot of exciting things going on. And some stuff that isn’t so exciting but I’m not going to go into that.

Anywho, there’s a bunch of stuff I’ve been meaning to tell you about but haven’t had the time to do a full blog post on them. I’ll come back to some of these later and tell you more about them but for now I just want to get the word out.

Sound like a plan? Cool.

  • I’m proud to say that I’m 100% Polish so I was really excited when I heard about the People’s Pierogi Collective (PPC) a month or so ago. The PPC is a pierogi stand and they had their debut at Eastern Market two weeks ago. I can’t wait to check them out!
  • BareBones Detroit is a new web site that has set out to tell the stories of buildings in Detroit and map them. I met with one of the founders of the site, Sabrina Fitzwilliams a few weeks ago and her passion for Detroit, its history, and its buildings runs deep. BareBones Detroit is still in beta but they have big plans for the site, I’d keep an eye on them.
  • I first found artist Icon on Twitter and then by following his blog at Streetculturemash. His enthusiasm drew me in from the beginning and I love his photos! Check him out!
  • Dogs love to play on Belle Isle! Before you take your furry friend out to our island park take a look at the Belle Isle Dog Lover’s Guide from Belle Isle Home.

Thanks for mentioning my article about the Cranbrook Photowalk...and thanks to you and Dave for organizing these outings :)

I've been itching to get down to Eastern Market again...and I'll be sure to check out the pierogi stand when I do! I also need some McClure's pickle relish, Zingerman's pimento cheese, and some good organic granola...and maybe something from Grown in Detroit!

I was introduced to your blog a couple months ago and have just loved reading it! I especially love today's post because I, too, am a Polish girl through and through and did not know about People's Pierogi Collective. A field trip to Eastern Market is being planned as I type...

Thank you for highlighting all that is great in the D!

I LOVE pierogis! I'll definitely check that out next time I'm at Eastern Market. Thanks for the heads up!

Thank you for the kind words about PPC! The warm response from market-goers has been great. Next time you're down at EM, stop by and say hello.

Kim, Chief Pierogi Maker

PS - Don't forget to vote for a new pierogi filling on our website.

MB,
Thanks so much for your kind words! Maybe I'll run into you at the pierogi stand. :)

Kim,
I'll definitely stop by and say hi. Going to go vote for the new filling now!

You are full of the awesome to help let people know about how fun Belle Isle is for dogs! I have been meaning to tweak that page and thanks to you I got it updated.

Have a great holiday! BTW, I loved seeing your cat family...I have a cat, too, but she gets the short end of the stick on the blog, since she doesn't like to travel. What cat does?
