I actually plan on being in Michigan several times over the coming months (for work) and will be making my first trip back (was at the Auto Show earlier this year and had found some great food: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/6803...), for a two week stay, this coming weekend. I'm a bit further out this time though in Brooklyn, MI where the Michigan International Speedway is located.
I'd love to get any rec's for Brooklyn and the surrounding areas and also for the other, larger, communities nearby (Ann Arbor, Chelsea, etc.). I’ll be working pretty crazy hours so I’ll be somewhat limited for long distance excursions during the week, but it’s game on over the weekends. I will have car too BTW.
If anyone has anything for me, please let me know (I'm open for anything including dives, stands, fine dining etc.) I drove around a bit last night and ended up at Bob's Big Boy. I'd like to avoid this having to happen again.
Would also like to drink some local beers, or micro-brews, while I'm out here too. Got anything for me?
Thanks and I look forward to eating through your towns!
