  • Detroit Repertory Theatre
    Although the Detroit Repertory Theatre packs plenty of laugh-grabbers and tear-jerkers into each season, its artists have more on their minds than just entertaining theatergoers. The actors, playwrights, producers, and directors of the Repertory want to unite all Metropolitan Detroit communities under a banner of creativity. It's a lofty ambition, but the theater hasn't lost focus on that goal since it first opened in 1957. As the oldest non-profit professional theater company in the state, it prides itself on having weathered storms economic, social, and literal, and continues to produce four shows a year that remind audiences of the power of live performance. Those shows often feature scripts from the most promising talents in the Midwest, and aim to be as thought-provoking as they are engaging. The theater follows practices of ethnicity- and gender-blind casting whenever possible, ensuring that the people on stage represent the range of people in the audience. And that dedication to community extends beyond the footlights—the theater welcomes play submissions from local writers, and displays pieces from Michigan artists in the lobby.

  • La Dolce Vita
    La Dolce Vita: A User's Guide Innovative Italian Food | Award-Winning Patio | Buzz-Worthy Brunch Sample Menu Appetizer: chèvre eggplant served with tomato-basil sauce and goat cheese; touted as "perfect" by Hour Detroit Main course: sautéed veal scalloppine with grilled artichoke, kalamata olives, capers, and a veal demi-glace Where to Sit The patio. Seriously. It's legendary. It wins awards year after year, and consistently lands on "best of" lists across the city, including one in the Detroit Free Press. If you can’t snag a spot on the patio—or if it's winter—the indoor dining room holds its own thanks to rustic details such as brick arches, black-and-white photographs, and warm lighting. Why it Earns the Buzz: La Dolce Vita's lauded patio sits behind a large wrought-iron gate covered in vines, obscuring it enough that it probably goes unnoticed by drivers passing by on Woodward Avenue. On the other side of that gate sits ornamental street lamps, tree trunks wrapped in lights, and a fountain surrounded by flowers and plants. A tiki bar punctuates the whole scene, effectively transporting diners to an exotic terrace, or, as Detroit Free Press put, "a secret garden" all to themselves. Inside Tip: La Dolce Vita isn't all about lunch and dinner: The restaurant's brunch has also received its fair share of recognition. In fact, in 2012, CW 50 named it one of the Best Champagne Brunch Spots in Detroit. Vocab Lesson Chèvre: literally “goat” in French; another term for goat cheese. Piccata: a dish prepared by coating and sautéing thin slices of meat—usually veal or chicken—and serving them in lemon-butter sauce. While You're in the Neighborhood Before: Take your own architecture tour. Palmer Park is one of the most historic neighborhoods in Detroit, and it was even placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983. The area touts some of the most diverse styles of architecture in the entire state, including Tudor, art deco, Spanish, and modernist. After: Cap off your evening with a refreshing lager at the Dakota Inn Rathskeller (17324 John. R. Street), a charming restaurant devoted to German food, spirits, and music.

  • Dakota Inn
    As he toiled away on the assembly line at Ford Motor Company, autoworker Karl Kurz dreamed of opening a traditional German tavern like those he remembered from his hometown of Weikersheim, Germany. In 1933, he finally got his chance, working nights and weekends to convert a dilapidated Chinese hand laundry into a tiny bar that he called the Dakota Inn Rathskeller. Eighty years later, the Rathskeller—now run by Karl's grandson—has expanded from three tiny stools to 2,000 square feet. The eclectic décor pays tribute to Karl's memory: trophy animal heads and RV hood ornaments seized during family hunting trips decorate the walls, and hand-painted murals depict scenes from Karl's life, including a rabbit hunt and a group of friends downing enormous mugs of beer. Through arched porticos, waiters in traditional German-style garb deliver Bavarian bratwurst, pork schnitzel, and German-style potato pancakes known as kartoffelpuffer. At night, the hand-carved walls reverberate with German drinking songs such as the “Schnitzelbank”—or woodworker’s bench—as if in tribute to Karl’s remodeling efforts.
