Episode 205: "He's Regular Size"

Charlevoix / Detroit

On this episode of Under The Radar Michigan, we travel to Charlevoix, for a burger bistro foodie’s frequent. We’ll also see homes you’d swear hobbits inhabit, and to meet a local super hero they affectionately call Mr. Petunia. Then, it’s back to the motor city to tour Detroit in a completely unique way … on a Segway. We’ll also prove that shopping for groceries in Detroit can be an enlightening experience, and we’ll go to the movies … in style ... at The Detroit Film Theater.

Mushroom Houses
Some people call them the mushroom houses, and some people say actual gnomes live here ... all I know is … the only place you’ll see’em is Charlevoix. And they’re all the work of one man … Earl Young.


Honey Bee Market
Tom Daldin here … trouble shooter, danger seeker, investigative reporter here to uncover a great untruth about Detroit ... they say that there are no grocery stores here … well … that just aint true … or something like that. Truth is … if you’re looking for great grocery shopping experience, Honeybee Market in Detroit will not disappoint. And, the coolest part for me was … when you walk in the front door … that’s right free guacamole & chips … I’m in heaven.

Inside Detroit Tours
If you’re looking for cool things to do in Detroit … look no further … because Jeanette Pierce and the folks at Inside Detroit and The Downtown Welcome Center will totally hook you up. I thought a Segway tour of Detoit would be a great idea because I’ve always wanted to ride one of these things … and I’ve always wanted to learn more about the city. Boom! Both accomplished!

Weathervane Inn
You have to check out the Earl Young fireplace in the restaurant…it's pretty amazing!

Detroit Film Theater at the DIA
The Name Detroit Film Theater is one of those names that in one way says exactly what this place is … “it’s a theater that shows films in Detroit” … but at the same time, the name doesn’t even begin to tell you what this place is really all about and what it means to the city of Detroit. If you’re looking for a classic film experience, that goes way beyond the mega, mall, movie madness … Just go to the east entrance of the Detroit Institute of Arts, and there you’ll find the The Detroit Film Theater.
