New Releases

Easy Detroit Outdoors

Detroit enjoys a reputation as one of America’s major urban and industrial centers. Yet there is much of the great outdoors in this city—even in the heart of the downtown. Easy Detroit Outdoors shares the best of The D’s outdoor pursuits. Paddle the historic canals once occupied by Detroit's notorious Purple Gang. Drive outside the busy city for a visit to U-Pick orchards, premier golf courses and gorgeous rail-trails. Or stay in the city center to experience Slow Roll bicycling with 1,000 fellow riders. Easy Detroit Outdoors promises a new perspective on the Motor City that includes urban gardens repurposed from once abandoned city lots and a sandy beach and ice skating rink in the heart of downtown. Like its predecessor, 100 Things to Do in Detroit Before You Die, this book will help you create—and complete—your very own Detroit-themed bucket list, this time in the great outdoors.

Unique Eats and Eateries of Philadelphia

It seems natural that a city sandwiched between two rivers would become one of the hottest food destinations in America. Philadelphia, perhaps best known for its famous sandwich—the Philly cheesesteak—is finally getting recognized for its restaurant scene, which is making “best of” lists and bringing home national awards. But with so many great choices, it can be hard for you to choose where to eat. If you’re hungry for a good meal and a delicious story, Unique Eats and Eateries of Philadelphia is here to serve you. It’s not a restaurant guide; instead, this book introduces you to the city’s most fascinating restaurants and chefs. Discover how two chocolatiers got engaged; learn about dinners interrupted by a bungled mob hits; restaurants that survived an earthquake, a fire, and even Prohibition; a secret restaurant that began in a backyard tent; a water ice stand that started in a garage; and a vodka distiller who bottled spirits in his parents’ basement. The book includes the inside scoop on more than 90 of Philadelphia’s upscale restaurants, BYOBs, ethnic restaurants, and fast casuals, as well as bars, bakeries and breweries - any place with a moving story and good food or drink. For sweet & spicy stories plus tips on how to get reservations at Philadelphia’s trendiest restaurants and get into secret speakeasies, find the most sinful desserts, see senior citizens dining with college seniors, taste grilled goat, spot celebrities and order vegan cuisine that’s kosher, too, let Unique Eats and Eateries of Philadelphia be your dining companion.

Author Bio
Author Irene Levy Baker has spent more than 25 years eating her way through Philadelphia’s iconic eateries, BYOBs, and mom and pop shops and attending the newest, hottest restaurant openings. As owner of Spotlight Public Relations, she has spent nearly two decades working one-on-one with chefs, restaurant owners, food writers, and diners and what she discovered will satisfy your appetite for a good meal and a great story.
