Going for the green



Atom’s Juice Café, Metro Times’ pick for best healthy food in the Detroit area, is no more, as previously reported here in News Hits. The Grosse Pointe vegan food café closed after a long, nasty legal battle spurred by a neighboring Subway sandwich shop. Now, “Friends of Atom’s” is holding a benefit to help owner John Chetcuti get on his feet so he can reopen in the area. Live music and vegetarian health information will be provided at the benefit. Who can resist helping out a guy who signs his e-mails, “Peace and Veggies Forever”? The benefit is Nov. 17, from 4-10 p.m. at the B.P.O. Elks Lodge at 21728 Harper in St. Clair Shores. Donations ($20 sounds about right) are requested. For info call 313-822-1738 or e-mail
