MIDTOWNGreat Lakes Coffee is hosting a Founders tap takeover and five-course dinner this Friday, right in the coffee shop. Chef Mathew Brownlie is in charge of the menu, which is definitely not vegetarian, just a heads' up (menu at the link). [Great Lakes Coffee]

EASTEPOINTE—A Middle Eastern restaurant recently purchased by a Syrian couple has been renamed The Bomb which is understandably ruffling a few feathers and causing some raised eyebrows. Apparently the owner wants to be cool, insisting that people still say food is "the bomb" when it's delicious, but it all smells awfully like a publicity stunt, and a questionably tasteful one at that.

MICHIGAN—Congratulations to Michigan breweries Shorts, Bells, Founders, Kuhnhenn, Dark Horse, Almar Orchards, B Nektar and Schramm's Mead for making it onto the "Best Beers By Style Category" list. [RateBeer]
