so you go and you stand on your own / and you leave on your own / and you go home, and you cry and you want to die.

Congrats Featherstone!!


Found this little guy late Thursday night by Holbrook and St. Aubin. He didn’t have any identification so we took him home, cleaned him up and let him curl up on the couch for the night. Dropped him off at the shelter in the morning, if you know him or know someone that knows him please contact the Michigan Ant-Cruelty Society on Jos Campau in Detroit at (313) 891-7188. We’re all rooting for him. If you live in the Detroit/Hamtramck area please consider giving this post some legs so the word gets around.

So fortunate to meet and hang out with this amazing woman(and Oly, the cutest pitbull tour buddy) after her show yesterday. An entire table of gear, the stage sprinkled with instruments and a crowd not afraid to dance. She killed it AND covered Juicy.

Welcome to the work week


It’s all about access, right? Thrift for Detroit certainly believes so. I checked out their open house this weekend and was met with the most refreshing sight: young black Detroiters supporting our community.

Founded by the wordsmith, Isaiah Spriggs,Thrift for Detroit collects new and gently used clothing and household items, then plans to host events directly with other nonprofits in the area who support residents in need. Donation bins can be found at Aired Out Customs in Northland Mall, Norah’s Loft Downtown, and The Taco Spot in the African Bead Museum.

As a Howard grad, I’m no stranger to thrifting or nonprofits. But to see them combined for the growth of my hometown and being fueled by talented people of color made my love for this city burn even brighter.

“Yes, there are already thrift stores, but we want to bring a unique thrift experience right to the organizations who need us,” Chantel explained. Student activist, non profit professional , and Thrift for Detroit’s Social Media Manager, Chantel is ready to start a movement.

Donate, support, grow, follow: Isaiah @ilovewerds, Chantel @chanithehippie, and Like Thrift for Detroit on Facebook!

The Detroit Foodie: Socra Tea - Detroit 



Located in the lower level of the 71 Garfield Lofts is the quaint little tea house known as Socra Tea. It’s refreshing to see a caffeine-centric shop that deviates away from the city’s rapidly growing coffeehouse scene. In doing so, Socra Tea has carved a niche for itself as Detroit’s…

Love this place.
