Shinola is a big part of Detroit’s revival, and they’ve just opened their own branded hotel in partnership with Bedrock Detroit. Going way beyond watches, bicycles, and leather goods, the establishment is simply called the Shinola Hotel. The brand new digs are located at 1400 Woodward, where a Singer Sewing store once stood. It captures the best of the Shinola brand style and classic Detroit architecture in 130 guest rooms and a sprawling event space. The associated restaurants include San Morello and the Italian works of Chef Andrew Carmellini, as well as Penny Red’s fried chicken. Retailers include Madewell, Drought, Le Labo, and Good Neighbor, all just a skip, hop, and a jump away. Step into one of the mid-century modern rooms, and you’re welcomed by tall arched windows, an array of Shinola products, and beautiful marble tubs and terraces, the latter of which offer views of ever-changing downtown Detroit.

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
