BOOZE NEWS — National media is getting high on that special Detroit buzz of late and Conde Nast Traveler is not immune. The Motor City's prohibition era history with booze is the inspiration for a new listicle highlighting the local distilleries and restaurants on the forefront of Detroit's modern whiskey trade. Townhouse, The Oakland, Valentine Distilling, Two James Spirits, and Detroit City Distillery all make appearances. [CNT]

THE CRITICS — Molly Abraham strikes again with a new list of "dining rules." Abraham is not a fan of, well, really much of anything. The critic abhors food served on rooftops and isn't she going to be ordering a dish of flaming saganaki anytime soon. Abraham also has an aversion to bulletproof glass-protected kitchens (we'll keep all those delicious Dutch Girl Donuts and Motor City Soul Food to ourselves then) as well as drinking beer from bottles.

FOOD TV — Another food company from Metro Detroit's ranks is headed to a television competition. McClary Bros., producer of delicious drinking vinegars, will appear on the ABC series Shark Tank at 9 p.m. on September 25. [Hometown Life]

CAFFEINE NATION — Daniel Martinez formerly of the shuttered 1515 Broadway Café in Detroit has opened a new coffee shop in Pontiac. The Alley Cat Café debuted Dream Cruise weekend. [The Oakland Press]
