Hopheads can turn to the long-standing tradition of the pub crawl, but where do foodies in search of variety turn? A 'grub' crawl — a one-night tour through a host of restaurants in search of deliciousness. The 4th Semi-Annual Grub Crawl on Wednesday, May 8, hosted by the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Regional Chamber, is one such opportunity, where hundreds of local community members will visit restaurants including Aubree's Pizzeria & Grill, Cafe Ollie, Corner Brewery, Haab's, Harvest Kitchen, Red Rock BBQ, Sidetrack Bar & Grill, and The Wurst Bar. Most restaurants will be serving their local specialities, but there will also be plenty of options for kids as well. After registering online, guests will arrive at an assigned location to receive a t-shirt that will act as their "ticket" for the evening. Golden Limousine International will provide a transportation trolley so that guests can make it to every stop. It's a chance to try new food at local restaurants and perhaps discover your new favorite hot spot. $20/adults, $5/children under 12. Wednesday, May 8. 6-9pm. Downtown & Depot Town Area, Ypsilanti. 734-214-0105. Pre-register online at business.a2ychamber.org. —MO

Green Book is Worth the Trip

Green Book combines two crowd-pleasing formulas—the road movie and the true story—with two stellar lead actors, Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali.
