A pair of food-loving University of Michigan student friends first told me about Belly Deli, open since April near the corner of South U and Washtenaw. I was intrigued by their description of a place to get "Asian-ish" food. I wouldn't have guessed from the name that the Belly Deli serves "gourmet Asian salads and sandwiches. And I also didn't expect the clean, modern lines, the single stainless steel communal table, the fun monster wallpaper, or the dozen shades of gray that inform the aesthetics of the small space.

Michigan is a destination for visitors from all over, and many want to bring their four-legged friends with them on their travels. It's no surprise — pets are a big part of our lives, and wanting them to share in the fun is natural.
I recall many years when Gretchen was able to tag along on trips to the Traverse City area.
In fact, I get a lot emails and phone calls from folks across the nation inquiring on pet-friendly restaurants in the area — but I cringe when I have to tell them that there are none. For many, they say that may make or break their decision to come here and spend time (and money!).
But one piece of proposed legislation may enable restaurant patrons to bring their dogs when they dine.

Besides drummer/vocalist Sebastian Keefe, Family of the Year consists of his brother Joe Keefe (vocals/guitar), Jamesy Buckey (guitar/vocals) and Christina Schroeter (keyboards).
Keefe said the band, which formed in 2009, spent a summer living “like a big family” in an old warehouse (and) we started to act like a family.
But we dug the name out of an old song that Joe had written and it had a good ring to it
