City of the Week in Novi! The gang finally found the old railroad station. The railroad came to Novi in the 1870’s. There used to be a West Novi (corner of Wixom and Grand Boulevard), but the railroad gave Novi and boost and West Novi faded away.
The Novi Special Water Tower! And amazing story behind this... the water tower gives a salute to the Novi Special.. a particular type of race car that ran in Indianapolis during the 1940’s through 60’s. It was based off of a cutting edge V8 engine created by Ed and Bud Winfield in 1938.
Doni and Cameraman Steven get a little holiday spirit from a local flower shop.
Doni is feeling Christmas-y.
On to Diamond Jim Brady’s Bistro! They’re following protocols and keeping it safe!
We loved the vibe of Diamond Jim Brady’s! The restaurant first opened in 1954 in Detroit but now it calls Novi home. Accent pieces from the original restaurant adorn the bistro.
We love this sign... and food. We love food.
The gang looked around Novi for signs that ROCK!
How do they get those cars in there? We had to ask... turns out, the middle section is open. Each level has a dedicated slot for raising and lowering the cars... going UP!
More signs that ROCK in Novi!
The City of the Week crew popped in for some holiday cheer at 12 Oaks Mall.
Santa should be coming any minute now...
Doni, Cameraman Steven, and Yann of local TikTok fame... he’s known for his 12 Oaks TikTok videos where he acts like he lives there!
Cameraman Steven social distancing with mannequins.
Macy’s fundraiser... writing letters to Santa!
Cameraman Steven wrote a letter asking Santa for a raise or a promotion.
Heading out from Novi!
