The Whitney, Navigation Systems and Reviews!

Navigation systems in luxury vehicles are not only good at getting you
from point A to point B but they also lend a hand in deciding where
you should dine-out. The Whitney is getting rave reviews all over
town, literally, because of Zagat.com. So next time you're cruising
in your car, turn on your navigation and check out our review!
Here's a taste...

"Go to be treated like a royal," or at least "a lumber baron of yore", at
this Wayne State New American "grande dame" housed in an "opulent"
Victorian showplace that's "elegant in every regard" featuring Tiffany
chandeliers, stained-glass windows, marble fireplaces and rich woods
throughout; the desserts are "to die for", but the savories are "wonderful"
too, with lunch "an especially good deal."

Celebrities in the House!

Hollywood has struck once again in Detroit and this time it was here at The Whitney! This past weekend, pop sensation and celebrity teen-queen, Miley Cyrus was here to film the English-language remake: LOL. After a full weekend of transforming The Whitney's third floor Ghostbar into an elaborate set, the crew was finally ready to film on Sunday. The day was filled with lights, cameras and busy film gurus but it was also a day to be remembered by The Whitney staff. Some sat and chatted with Miley as she waited for her cue and others stood smiling from a far. Either way, it was an exciting day to witness Hollywood in the making.

The Tulips Will Soon Bid Us Adieu

In a few weeks, The Whitney will be replacing our beloved tulip center piece with a new display in the walkway in front of the restaurant. We have enjoyed having the tulips grace the mansion this summer. We can’t possibly count the number of photos our customers took standing in front of the Whitney and the over-sized annuals – many asking their server to take the picture of their entire group. Still, it was time for a change. Therefore, The Whitney will unveil brand new, enormous, totally awesome.... Nope, sorry - you will have to wait a few more weeks for the unveiling. Stay tuned - the Parade Company is in full production mode applying their incredible artistry and flare to create something truly unique for The Whitney!

Patio party people: Carolyn Striho welcomes Troy Gregory to Whitney garden gig

Here is the article that was written in today's Model D (http://www.modeldmedia.com/). Take a look!

"Aug. 5, 5:30 - 8:30 p.m.
Once upon a time in a distant memory of Detroit in the glam-punk-rawkin' 1980s, Carloyn Striho fronted a group called the Cubes, one of the best bands of its day. She's been doing it like an eternal teenage dream ever since, heading up the equally punchy Detroit Energy Asylum, and collaborating with Patti Smith (yes, that Patti Smith) and Vinne Dombrowski of Sponge.

This Thursday, Aug. 5, Striho welcomes the multi-talented Troy Gregory (the Witches, the Stepsisters, Dirtbombs, Nathaniel Mayer) to a swingin' garden and patio party at the Whitney. The jams will be kicking out 5:30 - 8:30 p.m. The Whitney is at 4421 Woodward Avenue, in Midtown Detroit."

We hope you can make it this Thursday, August 5 as Troy Gregory will be here to perform some great jams!
