Diamond Jim's News - Detroit

Happy Holidays all you DJB's fans. Got a Christmas card from Mary today. In it, Mary wrote a message: "Watch for breaking news." Hopefully, she'll be back in business soon. I know that a lot of folks miss her.

  1. BAM! That is stinking *great* news, SonyBob! I'm really, really happy to hear this. Can't wait.

      1. That is fabulous news! My birthday is in a few days and I was thinking that if DJ's was open, that's where I would like to go for my birthday dinner. SonyBob, since you are a close and personal friend, could you have her hurry up and open by the 28th?;-)

          If only I could!!! It would make a great birthday present for me, too. Today's my birthday!

              Aww, shucks. Thank you, Rheta and the same to you. And happy holidays to all of you Detroit hounds. Lets all try to get together when DJB's reopens! Did I mention that I made my first pilgrimage to Dearborn Sausage? Really neat but what intrigued me even more were the little packing plant that, I think, had a retail shop and the little fish market, all on Wyoming, just north of Dearborn Sausage. Anybody been there?

              1. re: SonyBob

                Alcamo's Market and the fish joint that I can't remember the name of. Yep...good stuff.

                Good family oriented business!

                1. re: JanPrimus

                  I don't think Alcamos is on's on Schaefer in E. Dearborn. Dearborn Sausage isn't by it.

                    Yep I completely read that wrong. My Bad!

        2. Just got a mass email from Mary saying that she's agreed to terms with the same property owners to open up another restaurant in the "Clock Tower" portion of the same mall, whichever that is. It's going to be smaller (a decision she says she's happy with), and the target startup date is late-April/early-May, which I'd assume will more likely turn into late-May/early-June, if her life and times are anything like mine.

          Ah, it's nice to kick off the year with some good news, eh?
