Race For The Cure

This past Saturday, nearly 30,000 people gathered in Detroit Outside Comerica Park to participate in the 19th annual Susan G. Komen Race for the cure. Breast Cancer survivors and supporters showed off their teams, shared stories, and walked (or ran) to raise money and gain awareness of breast cancer. Many local and national vendors, radio and TV stations, and city officials participated in this amazing event held here each May. Some of our Whitney staff, including Owner Bud Liebler and his son Pat Liebler were outside The Whitney handing out Water Bottles and cookies to all those who were walking and running in this years race.

We look forward to seeing all of you in the Komen Race for the Cure once again next year!

The Whitney Garden Gets a Facelift and a New Couple Graces the Grounds

The weather is warming up and the The Whitney staff is working hard to recreate our MidTown garden oasis for the summer. The deck has been recently refurbished and repainted, a new custom designed bar has been installed, our umbrella tables and chairs are being refreshed and the foliage and flowers are in full bloom. But…the newest addition to The Whitney Gardens…a brand new fountain. “We wanted to bring some of The “old” Whitney back,” said Bud Liebler, proprietor. “When we saw the fountain we knew it belonged here in our gardens. We think David Whitney, himself, would have loved it!”

Coming Soon – The New and Improved Whitney Gardens!

The Whitney staff is working diligently to prepare for the Grand Opening of The Whitney Gardens for the 2010 Season. Mark your calendar for our May 25th opening! Trees are trimmed, rose bushes are pruned and the tulips are emerging (the real ones, not just our seven-foot tall pretenders)! This year promises to be better than ever with a new Garden Menu, amazing Happy Hour specials including half off drinks and appetizers between 4 and 6pm, and a full schedule of live music to fill Midtown’s garden oasis. Join us in the garden beginning May 25th for lunch, happy hour, dinner or even Sunday brunch. As always, The Whitney is pleased to offer its signature fine dining menu in both the garden and inside the iconic mansion all summer long. We believe we’re among a very few spots to offer such an amazing culinary experience in such a colorful, tranquil garden setting. The only thing that’s missing is you.

We hope to see you on the 25th and often throughout the spring and summer.
