Tech toys, gold, and red hots

A collection of luminous, rainbow-hued hammered-niobium earrings and necklaces was the only thing on display when we stopped by in February. "We're just going to experiment-repair and resell, or maybe add other art," says Kokkales. "I used to paint glass ornaments and clothes. We might have a corner for that. It might turn into a very eclectic little store."

The Gold Gallery, 4900 Jackson Road, 327-9900. Mon.-Fri. 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and by appointment. thegoldgalleryA2.com.

Red Hot Lovers closed for Christmas, and to the surprise of its East University neighbors, it never opened again. In the shadow of the new Zaragon apartment complex, the scrappy little haven for Chicago-style hot dogs looks even more funky and shacklike now than it did when Alan Cantor and Tim Blackburn opened it twenty-five years ago. The owner since 2007 has been Troy Slade, a 2003 U-M grad who lives in New York.
