As much as I love Grand Rapids and the west side of the state, I’m a Detroit girl and it wouldn’t be right to go through today (March 13th) without acknowledging 313 Day aka Detroit Day! 313 is the city’s area code and today let’s show love to the D by celebrating some of the best made-in Detroit products, which mostly consist of food, of course.

Coney Dogs

The true Detroit style coney includes chili, onions, and yellow mustard.

Better Made Chips

Faygo

Mmm. Red pop.

Vernor's

Buddy's Pizza

McClure's Pickles

Shinola

"The Big 3"

Ford, Chrysler, and GM

Made in Detroit clothing brand

Motown & Techno music

Obviously, the list can go on and on but these are are just some of the things that popped into my head. Feel free to add to it :)

Grand Rapids - make sure to mark June 16th on your calendar for 616 Day!
