What We’re Chewin’: December 2019

We came, we saw, we chewed and brewed. What We’re Chewin’ is a rundown of what’s currently tickling our taste buds.

Where did 2019 go? It seems like only yesterday we were exploring Traverse City’s cider scene, enjoying vegan burgers and dogs at Chili Mustard Onions in Detroit, and sipping cocktails under the sun at Aventura in Ann Arbor. Alas, we’re hungry again.

With the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it can be hard to maintain healthy eating habits.
