Psssst: Detroit Restaurant Week Returns

The nitty-gritty tiddly-bits have yet to be finalized, but it has been officially announced that Detroit Restaurant Week will return again this fall for another 10 days of fine dining frenzy.

But wait, what's this??? A press release??? Heavens to Mergatroyd!

PS, I will be the official blogger once again, and we're going to mix it up a bit this time. Don't worry, I'm sure I'll still be able to squeeze in a long-winded ramble or two.
