Introducing 'Detroit Minutes'


It's been awhile since I've shared a daily vlog, and there's a lot of reasons for that. Time, privacy, boredom, etc. etc. Most of you know that I'm a huge foodie, and in addition, I'm also a gluten-free vegetarian. Pleasing my taste buds and my sensitive tummy isn't always the easiest to do, but I take every opportunity there is to try out a new dining establishment in Detroit. Since I usually include these dining experiences in my daily vlogs, I thought making them their own series on my channel would be a nice change. So, I bring you: DETROIT MINUTES.

Here's what I don't want DETROIT MINUTES to be: All about food (because I do other things too), overly negative, or longer than 5. Minutes, that is. Get it? These aren't reviews per say; I'm not a food critic. They're experiences. But I am going to share my honest impressions, and maybe have a little fun along the way, too.

I'd been meaning to try out Parks and Rec Diner for ages and when Nikki asked me to go to brunch today, it was a no brainer. I've heard nothing but great things, and the location is right up my alley. I got the Oatmeal Brulee, Fruit Cup, and Orange Juice. My full impressions of my meal are in the first episode of DETROIT MINUTES (embedded below.)

On a whim, we decided to stop into Detroit Water Ice Factory, which we had no idea was owned by author and journalist Mitch Albom and donated 100% of their profits to charity... (it's also pretty delicious.) We even got to meet the man himself, which was pretty great. Here's to those who do good things for our city. I sure do like those people.

Let me know where I should take DETROIT MINUTES to next, and enjoy!
