Ma Lou’s Chicken Wings

For years I have had the answer to a very important question in my life.  It’s given me a comfort that I’ve come to take for granted.  That question being who has the best wings in the area.  For the last decade, it has been obvious that Sweetwater Tavern is serving the best wings I…

Scrapple at Wurst Bar

Imagine this scenario.  The Wife and I are on vacation.  Our first since the holiday season.  We decided to stay home and take care of somethings we had been meaning to since we bought our house and moved to Ypsilanti.  We had a long list including finishing painting the kitchen cabinets, lift up a drooping…

Breakfast Egg Rolls

I have a problem.  When I cook I like to make large portions with the idea of having them available for multiple days to cover additional meals.  My thought process is if I cook something really delicious, why not eat it for every meal for the next four days?  The thought sounds great at the…

Tomahawk Steaks and Sous Vide

Honduran Food at a Coney Island

My First Day in Ypsilanti

Three posts in a week.  Crazy, right?  I know, get over it.  How about four restaurants in one post?  Let’s get into it. I’ve eaten a ton of food in the past thirty days since arriving back in the Ypsilanti area.  For those of you who don’t know my life story, I actually grew up…

Arby’s Bought Buffalo Wild Wings

So I’m reading the news just now and I see that Arby’s has purchased Buffalo Wild Wings for $2.4 billion.  Here’s the crazy part:  The deal wasn’t for stock options, as most large corporate acquisitions are, it was for STRAIGHT CASH.  Apparently profits have been dwindling in casual dining establishments as people realize they can…
