More than 50 years go, Mike Ilitch was poised for major-league glory. An up-and-coming shortstop for the Detroit Tigers, his baseball finesse was blossoming when an injury derailed his sports career. But although the wound stunted his athletic aspirations, it steered him toward a new path, and on May 8, 1959, he and his wife opened the first Little Caesars location, a then-unheard-of carry-out-only joint. The career shift and novel technique eventually proved triumphant. Today, the pizzeria's iconic, toga-clad mascot adorns storefronts on five continents. In each shop, staffers forge the signature Hot-N-Ready pizza, a freshly baked pizza designed for instant pickup, and warm, garlicky Crazy bread. With a storied half century under their belt, Mike Ilitch and his family strive to give back, supporting local organizations and creating their own charitable programs.
In the beady paradise of Village Beads, a wonderland of twinkling jewelry greets the eyes, and a bevy of classes instills a love of beading in novice jewelers. During a beaded-jewelry-making session, crafters garner the skills necessary to construct a necklace and earring set using a $5 allowance to choose their own beads from the village's huge selection before following the guidance of the beadery's master designers. Wire-wrapped-ring classes highlight the subtle art of twisting metal wire into a ring—which students can crown with a single bead, a Swarovski crystal, or a small compartment for carrying an emergency ring—and the pearl-knotting-and-stringing class teaches customers how to shape a chic new necklace out of the shop's pearls and silk.
From an English-style cottage nestled in the Jackson Street Historic District, The Parker House offers a savory haven for home-style eaters with a menu of aged steaks and simple Southern comfort food. Lavish starters tempt eager stomachs with rich mouthfuls of duck quesadilla, served with gouda, roasted corn salsa, and spiced sour cream ($9), or grit fries, crusted in herbs and bread crumbs topped with a smoky honey-chipotle aioli ($8). The Catfish Katherine astounds palates with a fresh Mississippi catfish blanketed with a sizzling sauté of crab, mushrooms, and green onions alongside edible islands of mashed potatoes and turnip greens ($24). With only certified Hereford and USDA prime beef, rehabilitated werebears can stymie carnivorous pangs with a marbled ribeye ($32) or an aged six-ounce tenderloin fillet ($25).
Skin on the neck ages seven times as quickly as the skin on the face. The team at Body Anew Medical Spa are all knowledgeable skin experts, whose collective passion for skincare extends all over the body. They also use nonsurgical services, including facials and chemical peels, as ways to combat acne, sun spots, and fine lines. To refine the rest of the body, the team calls on non-wax depilatories to whisk away unwanted hair and lasers to zap spider veins while leaving surrounding skin as undisturbed as a kitten napping in a baseball glove.
