If you are in the market for great food, try the Hidden Gem Restaurant (located in Southfield) and Joe Louis Southern Kitchen (located in Detroit).
If one of your New Year’s resolutions include eating healthier, then you want to try Juiced by Jae (visit Facebook and Instagram at @_juicedbyjae), The Kitchen by Cooking with Que (Detroit), Try It Raw (Birmingham), and Detroit Vegan Soul (Detroit).
After dinner, why not read books and chill. My top selection of adult books this month include Jay-Z by Michael Eric Dyson, Will by Will Smith, and Act Like You Got Some Sense by Jamie Foxx. My top selection for children’s books for this month are Son You Matter by Derrick Jakolby Washington, Grandma’s Purse by Vanessa Brantley-Newton, and Norman Didn’t Do It! (Yes, he did.) by Ryan T Higgins.
If you prefer a nail-biting movie or binge-worthy series, then you want to watch King Richard (2021), Kingsman (2021), and Brain on Fire (2016). Binge-worthy series include True Story (2021), Yellowstone (2018), City of Lies (2021), and Mayor of Kingstown (2021). Be sure to tell me what you think. If you prefer to travel, well I have you covered as well. Let’s take a trip.
Travel suggestions: In a galaxy far, far away. Wait a minute, who are we kidding – it’s at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. I had the opportunity to visit both the Star Wars and Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular. I had a blast. My Star Wars adventures included the Star Wars: Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, and Star Tours – The Adventures Continue. I was able to pilot the Millennium Falcon, purchase custom merchandise, drink blue milk, experience galactic dining, mingle with the locals, and take all the selfies my heart desired. After my photos, I headed over to the Indiana Jones live amusement show. The crowd and I cheered on as the staff and crew performed amazing stunts. Before you leave Florida, be sure to stop by the Muse of Discovery and the Bronze Kingdom Museum. You will thank me later.
