Vegan eating, an AfroBeat dance class, cannabis-infused dining and more are all part of this year’s Detroit Black Restaurant Week.
The dining promotion founded by the food blog Black Metro Eats returns for a third year Monday through Aug. 25. Event founder Kwaku Osei-Bonsu says some participating restaurants will create three-course meals for a fixed price and others will offer deals tailored to their business model.
