So how does this work?

In a nutshell: Wear your wristband, visit a restaurant, eat and drink and repeat until you’re full or the event ends at 9:30 PM.

You’ll grab your wristband at the Atrium of One Campus Martius anytime after 4 PM, and pick up a guide map for your recommended route. Dining begins at 6 PM at your starting restaurant. Enjoy unlimited food and drink at participating restaurants, and stroll between locations or use our official shuttles for longer distances.

With a minimum of 3 specialty plates and 1 signature drink at each restaurant, you won’t go hungry or thirsty. Strolling wait staff and our recommended routes will keep traffic flowing and eliminate lines!

VIP attendees enjoy additional benefits, including:

  • In an exclusive dining experience, VIP patrons will join Mitch Albom at a pre-event reception at 5 PM at Shinola Hotel’s Birdy Room.
  • Skip the check-in at the Atrium and get your wristband at the VIP reception.
  • VIP concierge desk located in the Atrium (you’ll pick up your wristband there if you can’t make it to the pre-event reception).
  • VIP after party at One Campus Martius from 9:30 PM to 11 PM with Mitch Albom and special guests.

How do I get around?

Restaurants are located in “clusters” that are walkable – enjoy the summer stroll! Special shuttles will help get you between the clusters.

Can I order from the restaurant’s menu?

Not as part of EAT Detroit. Chefs are preparing a special menu that is a minimum of 3 specialty small plates and 1 signature craft cocktail. You won’t go hungry or thirsty as you stroll from from restaurant to restaurant.

Is it OK to go back to the same restaurant several times?

During the event? No. Anytime after EAT Detroit? YES, please do!

EAT Detroit is a great opportunity to try many different hot spots and cuisines. Please help us make sure that your fellow attendees also have a chance to try everything by following the recommended routes. We encourage you to visit these restaurants again for a full night of dining after your EAT Detroit experience, keeping in mind that they have given up a night of service to help support SAY Detroit’s mission to better the lives of Detroiters in need.

Is there a group sale price?

We do not have a group rate.

Is there alcohol on this tour?

Yes, each restaurant is offering a minimum of 1 specialty craft cocktail to EAT Detroit attendees. Please make sure you have your proof of age with you.

What's the refund policy?

There are no refunds. This is a rain or shine event. (We’re using concert rules!)


We do not allow resale, and if any special ticket discounts are made available, they will be listed as official at www.eatdetroit.info.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Wristband pick-up does go much faster if you have your ticket on your phone or printed out. But, don't get worried if you left without it, we can look your ID up on our guest list.

**REMEMBER: The ticket buyer must be present to pick up all wristband(s) ordered with ID that matches the order. If you purchased more than one ticket in your order, it’s up to you to distribute the wristbands to your friends/family you purchased for.

I’ve got questions, who has answers?

Please email us at eat@saydetroit.org with comments, questions, and tips.
