This week was an interesting week for news as Attorney General Dana Nessel was slammed for, well, getting slammed at the tailgate for the University of Michigan v. Michigan State game in October. Nessel issued an apology and it seems our readers certainly wanted to know what she had to say.

Our readers were also interested in Big Sean giving fans a first look at the multiplex theater he's currently developing in Detroit's Midtown.

Speaking of developments, a question of why big chains keep putting small-sized stores in Detroit despite there being ample vacant land available in the city piqued the interest of our readers as well.

And our readers are also into our cover story about how the Viet-Cajun seafood boil trend has taken Detroit by storm.
