Might be a nice location for pre- and post-game gatherings for Titans events.

They need to get the parking figured out to make these type establishments successful as street spots on Livernois are very limited.

A story on WDET radio this morning said the Motor City Brewing Works will be opening in August 2017.

Great front page story in the Detroit News:

Detroit Eater website had a list of several Detroit restaurants opening this Spring. These three are in the Live6 neighborhood:

1. Slyde

Location: 19350 Livernois Ave, Detroit

Key Players: LJ Nelson, Anitrah Nelson, Jem Frick, Rayna Cook

The Situation: As The Avenue of Fashion continues to reinventing itself as a walkable Detroit neighborhood dining destination, fast-casual slider startup Slyde will throw its hat into the ring this spring. The restaurant will fill the long vacant Hunter’s Supper Club space on Livernois joined by a new outpost of Cass Corridor’s Motor City Brewing Works.

Projected Opening: April

2. Bucharest Grill

Location: 19492 Livernois Ave

Major Players: Bogdan Tarasov

The Situation: The Avenue of Fashion is about to get its own Bucharest outpost. Owner Bogdan Tarasov confirmed the location in November 2015 following much online speculation. Like the mini chain's three other restaurants, Bucharest will serve casual carryout options like chicken shawarma and falafel, as well as hot dogs, salads, and more. Owner Bogdan Tarasov tells Eater he’s confident the new shawarma spot will debut this spring.

Projected Opening: March/April

3. Detroit Sip

Location: 7420 W McNichols Road

Major Players: Jevona Watson

The Situation: A new addition to Northwest Detroit’s Bagley neighborhood, Detroit Sip aims to create a community hub with its cafe offerings on McNichols near the University District. The storefront has made some big strides towards opening day with a new facade, exterior lighting, tables, and equipment. Expect Detroit-made products and local coffee, tea, doughnuts, and pastries.

Projected Opening: Spring

Based on a poll I saw on Facebook, the Live6 organization is considering a weekly farmers market (vendors & entertainment) on Livernois across the street from the Detroit Mercy campus. They're asking if people would be more likely to come out on Friday 4-7 PM or Saturday 12-5 PM.

Great, the more the area improves around campus the easier it will be for parents to see their kids attending the school!

As a father, the main things I'll be looking for in a college when I send my son off are: (1) catholic school, (2) scholarship offers, (3) sushi restaurant.

1SAFETY, don't want my kid to be killed, robbed, assaulted or afraid to leave campus
suggesting that the area is improving, restaurant is better than abandoned buildings, but thank you for demonstrating once again your version of humor!

I completely agree with you. It's just a joke. Glad it's improving. Still a long way to go for main campus but sounds like we're getting there.
