Coach Insignia, Giovanni's Risorante, Great Lakes Coffee, Green Dot Stables, Joe Muer Seafood, Pegasus Tavernas, Roast, Slow's Bar BQ and The Whitney are among the city's best and brightest being toasted at the blowout event.

He turned the subpar service into a column's-worth of how-to-hire advice for managers everywhere. [Crain's Detroit Business]
