Nike is located on Woodward Avenue, right in the heart of downtown.
  7. Queen’s

    Macaroni and Cheese is always a crowd pleaser, but diners at Sweet Lorraine’s Mac n’ Brewz in Midtown have the choice of 14 types of Mac n’ Cheese. Yes, 14. Soups, salads, sandwiches, beer, coffee, tea and soda are also on the menu.
