Zingerman's Deli: Is a $15 Sandwich Worth the Price?

Zingerman's Deli: Is a $15 Sandwich Worth the Price? Jun 5th, 2011 at 10:00AM: Everyone told me that I had to eat at Zingerman's Deli in Ann Arbor, so I drove past Michigan Stadium and turned off Main Street, parked on Detroit Street and discovered that it's not just a sub shop but an overflowing gourmet market that happens to serve tasty, Dagwood-sized sandwiches. After sampling some brownies, I put in an order for a Bill's 2 over Prime, a...

Detroit, home of the Uniroyal Giant Tire

Detroit, home of the Uniroyal Giant Tire Sep 14th, 2009 at 9:00AM: Interstate I-94 East from Ann Arbor, Michigan to downtown Detroit is a monotonous drive. Low-rise housing complexes, mall parking lots and the Detroit Metro airport pass you by on the mostly flat route, snaking its way towards the heart of the Motor City. But if there's one weird landmark you're not likely to miss along the way, it's Detroit's very own Uniroyal Giant Tire, rising more than 80 feet...

Layover: Detroit

Layover: Detroit Jun 18th, 2009 at 8:30AM: Detroit's long association with the automotive industry led to poor public transportation development during the 1900s. As a result, the airport, which is thirty minutes from either downtown Detroit to the east or Ann Arbor to the west, is poorly connected to the cities. While there are a couple of public buses that visit the airport, neither lines go to any worthwhile destinations at any...

Gadling Take FIVE: Week of May 2--May 8

Gadling Take FIVE: Week of May 2--May 8 May 9th, 2009 at 1:00PM: Sometimes a Gadling post grabs one's attention and you think, "Gaad!" That's what I thought when I read Scott's post about the flesh eating bacteria that killed a man while he was on a cruise. I'm heading off on my first cruise in August. Naturally, a flesh-eating bacteria cruise story has impact. There are other posts that make a person ponder about life in general. That's what happened...

Budget summer vacations from Detroit: Ann Arbor

Budget summer vacations from Detroit: Ann Arbor May 7th, 2009 at 10:00AM: Forty miles west of downtown Detroit and twenty minutes from its airport, Ann Arbor is the complete antithesis of it's next door neighbor. Unemployment and crime are among the lowest in the state, property values are high, education is top notch and the city is alive with innovation and activity. Sure, The D has it's virtues (as Mr. Lansel from the Post gently reminds us,) but there is a...

On the road with the Lincoln MKS

On the road with the Lincoln MKS May 7th, 2009 at 9:00AM: When Ford contacted us about taking Lincoln's new MKS out for a test drive, I thought that they had the wrong website. Autoblog, our sister site, takes care of all things automotive, and they would certainly be better equipped to handle a test drive. And in addition to being an airplane person, well, I'm not a very good driver. But they made a good point: everyone on Autoblog has seen the MKS a...
