If it's meant to be treasured for a lifetime, it should come from Rottermond Jewelers. At least, that's what many Michigan grooms figure when they get down on one knee?so many that Rottermond keeps a running list of engagements that use their stones. It's these kinds of small, careful touches that snagged Rottermond a spot on wedding site The Knot's list of best wedding-ring vendors in the Detroit metro area in 2014.
In the store itself, Rottermond's passionate gemologists pair their old-fashioned attention to detail with a host of modern technologies. Customers can choose pre-cut baubles from labels like Rhythm of Love, Hearts on Fire, Scott Kay, Simon Golub, Valina, Martin Flye,r and Bridal Bell, of course, but they can also opt to design their own rings using 3D software. Even the repair services include lasers and other high-tech tools. Appraisals and gold quotes are among the remaining Rottermond services, but many visit the Milford and Brighton locations just to peruse the glittering wares.
It's a familiar scene—plasma TVs glimmer with football games as friends clink frosty glasses of brews over animated conversations. Still, MVP Grill and Bar sets itself apart from the standard neighborhood pub with its lengthy menu of eclectic dishes, which range from hearty American classics to fine Italian specialties. Its chefs whip up their own sauces for tender barbecue and juicy sandwiches, while inserting fine cuts of meat and fresh seafood into pastas, quesadillas, and other specialties. Chefs also fire-roast their own housemade italian flatbread before layering it with gourmet vegetables and cheeses to craft tasty paninis.
To complement the chef's top-tier menu, bartenders pour pints from a selection of more than 30 microbrews. Sports knickknacks adorn the walls in the bustling dining room, and outside on the deck, tropical-straw umbrellas that shade the patio furniture create the atmosphere of a far-off island beach or the exotic-fish section of a pet store. Throughout the month, the eatery hosts special events—including live music, karaoke, and trivia nights.
After shooting and editing video professionally for more than 25 years, n-code’s founders reeled in their skills to the shop, where they now shepherd video projects from preproduction through storyboarding and shooting. In the onsite video-editing suite, staffers cobble footage into video ads, corporate promotions, and documentaries. Beyond video production, the shop converts videotape to DVD and creates backup copies of DVDs and CDs. Mastering and printing services equip new discs with high-quality menus and labels, and the team of web designers can construct webpages for businesses and individuals, rather than forcing them to embrace technology via business cards that feature refresh-button stickers.
Originally conceived as a website dedicated to sharing information on rock climbing and mountain biking, Trail's Edge Cyclery opened its first storefront in 2003; a second followed in 2010. The shop's experienced mechanics and sales associates are all cyclists themselves, channeling their love of peddle-based transportation into comprehensive bike-repair, -rental, and -hypnotizing services. Biking gear and climbing gear from Surly, Cannondale, and other leading brands are sold online and at both analog locations in Plymouth and Milford.

Bass pulses sync up with heartbeats as up-tempo music reverberates off the sunset-orange walls of the studio at H.E.A.T. 4 Athletes. The sound rattles free weights, massive car tires, and advanced RealRyder exercise bikes, which add side-to-side motion to stationary-bike workouts. The gym, whose name is an acronym for "highly effective athletic training," hosts high-intensity boot-camp classes, cycling courses, and personal-training sessions throughout the week. A staff of certified instructors captains each session, guiding students through effective movements and exercises beneath television screens displaying energizing videos rather than popular morality plays about tortoises.
