Here’s our rundown of this summer’s biggest successes and failures at the theater By Jimmy Fortuna-Peak This World War II epic follows the evacuation attempts of 400,000 stranded allied soldiers trapped in the French town of Dunkirk. Director Christopher Nolan pulls no punches in his 10th feature-length film and creates a tension-filled narrative that hooks the audience from start to finish. Rather than using dialogue, Nolan utilizes visual imagery to push the plot forward, making it a unique entry into the war film genre. Dunkirk received high praise from both fans…

Royal Blood

Royal Blood joined The Beach Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Kendrick Lamar and others to thrill Michigan crowds over the summer by michael bergamo The night was here. The night that I’d been waiting in anticipation for three years ever since my brother had shown me the British rock-duo, Royal Blood’s self-titled album.

The Hidden Gem Reviews

By Heather Brouwer Knight’s Steakhouse, conveniently located on Dexter-Ann Arbor Road, has a wonderful ambiance. The lights are slightly dimmer than many restaurants, and the tables are small enough that in the slightly noisy atmosphere you can still hear the person sitting next to you, which gives off a more intimate feel. There were options of booths and tables. The tables had extremely comfortable rolling chairs that are nice when you want to look someone in the face but don’t want to go through the trouble of making a ruckus…

Hidden Gems

Here’s a fair warning:  if your parents aren’t paying for the meal, you might want to look the other way: it’s pricey. Black Rock is a mix between an upper class and a middle class restaurant. When going in, the restaurant gives off a welcoming vibe, so welcoming that you feel apart of the Black Rock family. Unfortunately, it’s hard to be part of a family that seems to always have a hour-long wait time and won’t take reservations. Luckily, Black Rock allows call ahead seating, which isn’t that different from…

Hidden Gems: Pieology & KouZina

By Jedidiah Howell and Caden Koenig Subway, when it first started, became a pioneer for food service when we recognized its impact on ordering food. Subway set the bar for sandwiches, and now we see new people pushing that bar higher. In search of restaurants with a similar serving style, we headed to downtown Ann Arbor. This brought us to Pieology and KouZina. Pieology Only hearing about this new pizza place made us curious to how it would work with having a subway style order. Worries arose such as how…
