And the rosé’s red glare

Budget-friendly wines for weekend grilling

by Justin King
It was a rough ride on the way to finding the ideal style of wine to pair with a hot dog, but a proper experiment needs to accumulate a large enough sample size. First you start with the correct gear: skinless Frankfurters from Flint-based Koegel Meats. There are non-believers out there, ...

She ate: A worthy breakfast pit stop

by Gabrielle Johnson
Last month, the boyfriend and I went up north. We rode our bicycles, we ate ice cream and salt water taffy and at a lighthouse on Old Mission Peninsula he proposed to me with his great-grandmother’s ring. Henceforth, he will now be known as “the fiancé.” Since he&rsq...

He ate: Service and charm fuel the Sinclair Grill

by Mark Nixon
There’s a little Italian restaurant we visit whenever we’re in Las Vegas. The food ranges from OK to not bad. But we keep coming back to Battista’s Hole in the Wall for the décor — and for Gordy. The walls are jam-packed with signed celebrity photos of “old” Vegas, a la the Rat Pack. Then there’s the legend — Gordy the accordion player — who serenades diners each night. He has done this for decades. To the regulars, Gordy IS Battista’s. (Spartan fans be warned: If he asks you where you’re from and you say Michigan, he will break into the U of M fight song.)

The newest old thing

Michigan farmers markets grow on new ideas and old-world dirt

by Lawrence Cosentino
A bumper crop of farmers markets is spreading across Michigan, ranging in size from Detroit’s bustling, 4.5-acre Eastern Market to the dozen-and-a-half booths of the tiny Bath market just north of Lansing — about 330 markets statewide in 2015, up from 150 nine years ago. Farmers markets are the newest old thing. Their taproot is a longing for old-world comforts like community, fresh food and a sane, sunlit stroll that’s scaled to a human size and pace.

Spreading like vines

Vine & Brew taps into Lansing’s growing wine appetite

by Ty Forquer
Like a metaphorical grapevine snaking through the trellis of our culture, a new level of wine knowledge is creeping into our everyday lives. Where wine tasting used to be reserved for the snobbiest segments of society, the popularity of the Food Network and easy access to food and wine blogs has turned everyone into an expert. Suddenly, your Uncle Ted, after perhaps a glass too many at Easter dinner, is spouting off about the “apricot notes” in his riesling and swirling his glass vigorously to “see if it has legs.” This new appreciation for wine has taken root in Lansing, and entrepreneur Curt Kosal has taken note.

White wine with mink

The infinite variety of wine pairings

by Lawrence Cosentino
Snobs will tell you that wine pairings are a delicate matter. They are not. Wine, in general, goes with everything. Every wine goes with every other thing. All you have to do is plug away, like an old school telephone operator, and listen in.
