Limelight and limes — As warm weather returns to our fair city, there’s a way to complement it with a bit of Baja breeze right inside the Boulevard: It’s called Tacos, Turntables and Tequila, and it happens every Tuesday at Detroit’s Great Lakes Coffee Roasting. Expect food from nearby Alley Taco, cocktails made with Blue Nectar Tequila, and special guest DJs each Tuesday. A Great Lakes bartender told us, “We get a nice crowd in, with a different vibe every week, depending on the DJ.” Sounds interesting. The event takes place 6-11 p.m. Tuesdays at Great Lakes Coffee Roasting, 3965 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-831-9627;
