Each month Genesee County, MI's Health Department makes surprise visits to restaurants in the area.

For the first month of 2024 they were busy inspecting a total of 174 restaurants.

See Also: There's a Taylor Swift-Themed Party Happening in Mid-Michigan This Spring.

Of those restaurants, 90 had perfect inspections.

The most common reasons restaurants were not on the perfect came down to three common things:

  • Dirty kitchens (hood vents, coolers, counters, floors, etc)
  • Misusing, or not using at all, hand sinks.
  • Mishandling of food (lack of gloves, stored below safe temperatures, not marked with dates, etc.)

Again, the restaurants below are PERFECT. Congratulations to each of them for operating at their best.

Remembering the Grand Opening of AutoWorld in Flint, Michigan

A short-lived Six Flags theme park, AutoWorld was supposed to be a tourist destination in Flint. Sadly, after several starts and stops, AutoWorld was imploded in early 1997. The land is now owned by University of Michigan-Flint and is home to the William S White Building.
