    Get your restaurant expansion and development news round-up right here. One of the city's favorite shawarma joints, Bucharest, is on a roll with its expansion efforts and is poised to open a third location Piquette Street in Milwaukee Junction later this year, Eater Detroit reports. Owner Bogdan Tarasov tells Eater he feels compelled to keep the growing chain within the city's limits and he hopes this newest location, just blocks off Woodward, will be a sleeper hit in the neighborhood. Elsewhere in Brush Park, the Freep's Sylvia Rector says the weeks-old Le Petit Dejeuner adds to the city's…

    CLIFF BRUNT, AP Sports Writer TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Tulsa Shock majority owner Bill Cameron announced plans Monday to move the WNBA franchise to the Dallas-Fort Worth market. Cameron said in an emailed statement to The Associated Press that he hoped the WNBA Board of Governors would vote as soon as possible on the relocation, though the team will finish this season in Tulsa. He said he was proud of the effort from community since the team moved from Detroit before the 2010 season. “This is a very difficult decision, and I know it is particularly difficult for the Tulsa investors,”…

Right now he's working with people living in Detroit and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra to compose what he's calling "Symphony in D." Machover says he's recorded sounds of Detroit like an old Ford engine, the acceleration of a Grand Prix car, a Chaldean church choir, an assembly line, the crowd on the Tigers' opening day, and it's those sounds that are being accompanied by the DSO.

From Mechelle:  Boyd, a WBCA All-American this season, seems eager to traverse three time zones and jump right into a different kind of classroom setting. She will get the chance to learn from veteran guards such as Tanisha Wright (a free-agent signee who spent her first 10 seasons in Seattle), Epiphanny Prince (obtained in February from Chicago in a trade for Cappie Pondexter) and Essence Carson. “I think those players are going to prepare me and challenge me each day to get better,” said Boyd, who averaged 13.4 points, 6.8…

  • Josh Smith Go Fund Me campaign going about as well as expected

    Sean Corp
    24 Jul 2015 | 1:21 pm
    The man just wants to provide for his family, people. The Detroit Pistons are paying Josh Smith $5.4 million to not play for them next season, and the power forward recently inked a deal from the Los Angeles Clippers for the veteran's minimum ($1.5 million.). That means Smith will make $6.9 million next season to be a reserve on a championship contending Clippers squad. That might make you think everything's working out great for Smith, but if you ask him, the arrangement is going to make it difficult to provide for his family. "At the end of the day, you know, I do have a family," he…

    New players have been eager to adopt the Detroit Bad Boys legacy. The Bad Boys are noticing and giving the thumbs up. Rick Mahorn was one of the baddest Bad Boys. His endorsement is certainly meaningful. For press conferences for Reggie Jackson's $80 million contract and Marcus Morris' trade, both players dubbed retro Detroit Bad Boys hats. From a story by Terry Foster in The Detroit News, Mahorn approves. "It is more of a following that never left," Mahorn said of players and celebrities wearing the Bay Boys gear. "It is a connection with the past with the present." Andre Drummond has…

    The Pistons may have a new alternate jersey replacing the Motor City blue. The Detroit Pistons may be soon revealing a new alternate jersey for the 2015-2016 season. The Detroit Free Press seems to think so, too: The Detroit Pistons will be wearing new gray alternate uniforms next season, according to a supposed confidential NBA document posted Wednesday night on Reddit. Gray? OK, kind of bland, but it is popular with the "50 Shades" crowd. And it's better than teal. The apparently leaked document — labeled "2015-16 Season Identity Updates" — shows renderings of uniform changes for…

We all know that Stanley Johnson had an impressive summer league, but for those of you who did not catch the Vegas Summer League action, you may not know exactly how good Johnson's summer league stacked up. Well, just so you know, it was the best. According to Scott Howard-Cooper at NBA.com, Johnson is the No. 1 rookie heading into camp, with the caveat that you can fall off a ladder (via NBA.com): Johnson locked up No. 1 without ever being threatened by the Las Vegas crowd. His underwhelming finale in Orlando of 10 points on three-of-10 shooting does not…

    Demetris Nichols pump faked from behind the 3-point line and Phil Goss bought it. With an open look at the basket, Nichols then rose back up to release his shot. Goss flew by him and the entire Boeheim’s Army bench stood up. The shot — which would’ve tied the game with less than five seconds left — clanked off the back of the rim. With that, Boeheim’s Army’s quest for The Basketball Tournament’s $1 million prize came to an end in the quarterfinals. After three wins to start the tournament, the Syracuse-based team went back-and-forth with Team City of Gods for 36 minutes…

    Baked beans go with almost every summer dish: hot dogs, burgers, fried chicken, pulled pork, Polish sausages—you name it! But as a side dish, how healthy are they? Baked beans can lower cholesterol and are packed with fiber, protein and antioxidants. In addition, baked beans contain folic acid, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium and vitamin B6, which together benefit bones, cell function, blood cell production and more. That said, you do need to be careful with how much sugar and sodium you’re mixing into your beans—some packaged varieties are high in both—and keep portion sizes…
