OPENING REPORT — Paris, a new gay bar, debuted in downtown Detroit last weekend across from Punch Bowl Social. [Metro Times]

DEVELOPMENTS — Could Detroit soon welcome more than one food hall? According to a City Council memo, a Detroit-based real estate group is proposing renovations of a building at 1350-1366 Service Street in Lafayette Park for a "mixed-use, food oriented centerpiece" with a food hall. [Crain's]

BEER HERE — Bell's Brewery is going historic with the release of Andrew's Ale. The new brew is an English-style extra special bitter made in old Stroh Brewing Co. wooden fermentation tanks that languished in a Detroit warehouse for 50 years. Unfortunately, it's only available at the Eccentric Cafe in Kalamazoo. Watch the reconstruction of the 100-year-old tanks below. [MLive]

CRIME WIRE — A man was hospitalized on Sunday after he and two friends were assaulted during a bar fight at the Waves Restaurant in St. Clair Shores. [ABC]
