Sampling the Holidays
Signs of the season in East Ann Arbor
If you believe every day is a holiday somewhere in the world, you can begin to prove your case along both sides of three blocks of Packard just past Platt. The area in what old-time Ann Arborites call East Ann Arbor is now our most concentrated ethnically diverse commercial hub. In a drive-by, your eyes could land on big marquees for Achilles Greek-style diner, Makkara "sushi to go," or Bombay Grocers (and purveyors of videos, statuettes, bangles, and other jewels of India).
