    Thanks for the name of this! I was trying to remember it. Never been there but had always heard great things. I see on Google it's been replaced by a Bellacino's (not bad either!) which was just...

    Exactly! I'm old enough to recall when it was called Area Code 313. Obviously they had to change the name when the real area codes split. After that, they just called it Area Code.

    WTF? Nice way to derail a thread. Anyway...there used to be an arcade in the 80s and 90s in Waterford at 4443 Dixie Highway. It's now a bingo hall but maybe it has the same owners? Personally I...

    I've never known there to be an actual 16 Mile Road. In Macomb County it's known as Metro Parkway and in Oakland County it's called Big Beaver until it's west of Telegraph its name is changed to...

    Perhaps you could spearhead a campaign for this. I'm sure there are plenty of people that could contribute to the cause. As noted above, the Detroit Urban League has a marker at that address and is...
