When a brick and mortar business opens, it's always a cause for celebration. But in the case of Detroit Sip
, a coffee shop on McNichols Road in the Live6 area, it's really
a cause for celebration.
On Saturday, Nov. 18, Detroit Sip will celebrate its grand opening after a lengthy saga of trying to open its doors. Renovations have been completed for months, community and other events have been held there, and owner Jevona Watson has been working diligently to open. But red tape and other issues have held delayed that from happening until now.
Watson even spoke to Model D back in February this year for a video (see above) on the coffee shop and its potential importance to the neighborhood.
With the recent groundbreaking of the nearby Ella Fitzgerald Park and construction underway next door at the new Live6 Alliance HQ, HomeBase, the coffee shop couldn't be opening at a better time.
The grand opening of Detroit Sip will take place Nov. 18 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Check out the Facebook event page for more details.
