Skid Likes Guns+Butter; Jazz Fest is Now

El Barzon

MIDTOWN — We're with Crain's Detroit's Nate Skid in thinking that a Guns+Butter dinner reservation for the upcoming Detroit Restaurant Week is pretty much unlikely for almost everyone. But his write-up of the illustrious popup provider and future restauranteur, Craig Lieckfelt, reads well, and is as good an introduction to the Guns + Butter boomlet as anything. [Crain'sDetroit]

DOWNTOWN — Curious about the Detroit Jazz Festival, but afraid to ask what to do and where to do it? Core Detroit has more than got you covered, with their helpful and realistic rundown of the best of the fest. From the Sunday Jazz Vinyl Club at Corktown's Motor City Wine to the special Sunday Jazz Brunch offerings at Downtown's Cliff Bell's, Core gets right to the core of the weekend's jazzy goings-on.

DETROIT — If you don't necessarily feel like playing the Detroit Restaurant Week game (suit yourself, we'll see all takers there), a group of lower-key bars and restaurants are taking it upon themselves to rebrand a different kind of restaurant week later in the season. The first-ever Dine. Drink. Detroit., which runs from Oct. 7 to Oct. 13, collects 13 lower-key establishments in a reservation-free, $15 special menu option. Favorites new and old like Ottava Via, Green Dot Stables and Rodin dot the list, as well as bars like Sugar House and Motor City Wine, which makes the DDD grouping a great and ultimately cost-effective offer for all.
