NEWS — After slimming down its lineup last year, it seems Detroit Restaurant Week is nixing the spring event all together. "After some careful consideration and discussion with our sponsors, we have elected to bring DRW back to its original vision, which is an annual event in fall," the organizers write. [Facebook]

EVENTWIRE — Looking for ways to soak up the booze (or find more) during Sunday's drunken St. Patty's Day Parade shenanigans in Corktown? Bobcat Bonnie's and Casey's Pub will be open with a tent serving burgers, hot dogs, Irish stew, corned beef sandwiches, and plenty of booze (Perrin, Guinness, Bud Light, bloody marys, and Irish punch). A $5 cover at the tent goes to the Detroit Firemen's Fund. Down the street, Two James is hosting food trucks including Bigalora and The Cook's Crossing. [EaterWire/Facebook]

NEWS — The owners of Kim's Garden in Novi are out on bail and have reopened their restaurant. Authorities say Roger Tam and his wife Ada Lei illegally employed undocumented workers and harbored them in their home, where they died in a fire in January. [MLive]
