Restricting yourself to a few drinks may well be frowned upon by the patrons at Limit Cocktail Lounge. Part of the Novi nightlife scene, the club first opened its doors in 1998.

Soul food goes upscale in this small, hip restaurant in the suburban Sunset Strip mall along bustling Northwestern Highway. The food is true to its Southern home-cooking roots, with Hoppin' John, Farm Raised Catfish Filet, Harlem Burrito and Grilled Cajun Pork Chop.

In the hushed dark-green-and-purple dining room, quiet rhythm-and-blues and jazz tunes fill the air.
Ray's Ice Cream has been family owned and operated since 1958. Located in Royal Oak, this quaint shop is a homey blast from the past.

Prices are a bit higher than what you might expect for an ice cream parlor, but the portions are huge and warrant the extra cost.

Great service by the wait-staff round out an exquisite experience.
There's no Gracie to greet you here, but there's a choice of more than 30 Martinis and lots of cigars to puff away the blues. Surely that won't make you utter good night soon.
