New vendor needed for Cass Corridor food hall
Shipping container food hall Detroit Shipping Company is once again on the hunt for a vendor after Windsor-based sandwich shop Bread Meats Bread officially dropped out of the project. The restaurant had been in flux since the food hall debuted this summer and faced significant delays due to complications related to its visa. “We blame the Trump-Trudeau beef,” Detroit Shipping Company’s operators wrote in a post to Facebook on October 12. Fellow Windsor-based vendor MotorBurger is still expected to open at the property. Perspective restaurants can find the application online. Another delayed addition, -320 Coffee & Creamery is expected to start serving nitrogen ice cream this week.
Little Caesars is being coy about its headquarters’ pizza windows
The forthcoming Little Caesars Global Resource Center is facing some delays from what appears to be an issue with its 14-foot-high, pizza slice-shaped windows — but the company doesn’t want to talk about it. The air handling units above the soon-to-be office of Chris Ilitch are allegedly causing so much movement in the building that that windows are cracking, according to the Detroit Free Press, but again, Little Caesars has no comment.

Detroit breweries are making Faygo beer
Expect lots of happy Juggalos at this year’s Detroit Fall Beer Festival. Detroit area breweries are once again banding together to brew beers based on a theme. This time around the Detroit Beer Experiment is using Faygo flavors to come up with special beers for the festival. The breweries including Traffic Jam & Snug, Eastern Market Brewing Co., Brew Detroit, Detroit Beer Co., Atwater Brewery, Founders Brewing Company, and Batch Brewing Company will unveil their brews on October 19.
No marijuana-infused booze for Michigan
While brewers are allowed to use Faygo in their beers, there’s one ingredient that won’t be allowed in alcoholic beverages in Michigan: marijuana. Ahead of a November ballot measure to legalize marijuana in Michigan, governor Rick Snyder has signed legislation that will ban infusing alcohol with weed.
