Quoted from NicoVolta:
That is EXACTLY where I wound up after Googling "walkable hipster neighborhoods" in Detroit and finding a Yelp cluster of non-chain/non-fast food restaurants (always a good sign) in Ferndale. Parked and walked next door to M-Brew (due to the "brew") and lo and behold was surprised to see it was the pinball barcade of the neighborhood.
Lots of brews, pins in good shape, but the food was mostly premade/simple bar stuff. OK filler food but not great. Then went to One-Eyed Betty's which had about half the games but five times the patrons. Didn't get to check out the menu but it seemed likely to offer more dining options.
Today... finally... Marvin's. Also met a punk rock couple on the plane who came here to see the band "Babymetal". Wondering if I should go...
Also, Marvin's is having a stern Ghostbusters launch party on Friday at 7:00.
