Fashionable Food and Drink

Remember Blackstone's men's clothing store at 531 S. Saginaw Street? It's about to become Blackstone's Pub & Grill.

Custom tailoring will not be included with lunch.


  1. it safe to assume that having your inseam measured is not a part of "happy hour"?

  2. Why not, it happened at The Copa.

  3. Please, this is a family blog.

    I tried to come up with something that linked tailoring with restaurants but I'm drawing a blank.

  4. This is fantastic. I'm glad people are taking the initiative and aren't scared to move forward, both against the economy and against downtown's vacancies.

    Guess I'll have to wait til March to see how their burgers compare to the Torch!

  5. A new place to "tie" one on? But, if you do, be careful you don't get "collared" on your way home.

    I hope they at least give it a new "coat" of paint before they open.

    Sorry, that's the best I could come up with "off the cuff."

    Enough "hem"-hawing around. I must "sleeve" now before someone "socks" me!


    "The Future Lives in Flint!"

  6. Randy, you're a machine.

    How can still get a few belts, but not for your pants.

  7. I wonder if they'll locate a salad bar near the dressing room...

    Someone stop me, please! :^)


Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
