A new 50's style diner with great barbeque in Kalamazoo. Check out the Metro Diner & 411 Blues Club. We went on a Thursday evening around 8pm. The diner is in between a large bar and a smaller Blues Club. I had a great 1/2 rack of ribs with their homemade bbq sauce along with a baked potato and coleslaw for only $7. My wife had an omlet (served till 2am) with hashbrowns and toast for only $3.50. While we were eating the blues music started up next door which was open to us thru large cutouts so we could watch as well as listen. We had a couple of drinks and stayed till 10:30pm. Blues is Thursday-Sunday nights. Check the guide for more details. Great place...especially if you like barbeque and blues!

Hard to believe, but Cascarelli's of Albion has reached the unimaginable milestone of 100 years. I was lucky enough to be invited thru my friend Ed H. to the invitation only party of about 300 to celebrate this momentous event. The party was nice with great food and a special 100 year anniversary ale made specially for them by Bell's of Kalamazoo. A nice Jazz band set the mood with a full house.
If you are in the area in the next 5 months, they are running many specials with old fashioned recipes and prices. I highly recommend you stop for a visit. Congratulate Jim Cascarelli and his family.
100 years! They must be doing something right. Try the pizza. Check the guide for more details.
