Dominick's, known as one the best Summer spots in Ann Arbor, boasts an awesome outdoor patio to enjoy all Summer long. All the locals know that when Dominick's opens up, it's officially Summer!

When you walk in the door, grab a picnic table outside on the patio and jump in line with friends (you'll need a few extra hands to carry food and drinks back). The menu is written all over the walls as you wait in line, and every drink is served in giant pitchers or jars. The staff is fun, young and friendly, and this place is a total, no frills, hang out type bar. And the food is pretty great as well. The best time to hang out at Dominick's is a sunny afternoon, as Dominick's is mostly a day/early evening place, closing at 10 pm.

The bottom line: The pricing here is pretty college/ budget friendly. Each throw in 10 or 20 bucks, you'll get drinks and a meal and leave feeling satisfied.

Dominick's is located at:

812 Monroe St, Ann Arbor, MI 48104

734.662.5414

Hours: Mon-Sat 10am-10pm

  • From The Ashes Of The Detroit Housing Market

Reason # 1 The Motor City

Maybe I'm a little bit biased since I come from Detroit, but I think that Detroit is a great reason to visit Michigan. Ignore, for a moment, the decrepit old houses and deteriorating neighborhoods, and think of the city's rich, vibrant culture and historical landmarks. Detroit is home to "The Big 3" and "Motown" after all. I don't care how much negative press you've heard about the city, don't tell me that you haven't driven a Big 3 car or been in love with a Motown song. The city's current decline is certainly no reason not to visit. Just be sure to keep your doors locked.(That was a joke, by the way).

Reason # 5 The Sports Teams

So, the Detroit Lions haven't done so well in the past few years. The Tigers almost made it to the World Series this year. The NBA is in the middle of a lockout, so we won't mention the Detroit Pistons. The Red Wings are probably the most consistent team we have, and although I don't follow hockey, it seems like they're winning the Stanley Cup every other year.

Plus, there are all of the college teams - the Big House (University of Michigan) is one of the most popular sporting venues in the country.
