Hatch Detroit just gave 50K away

and to who you ask?


Organizers for the Comerica Hatch Detroit retail contest announced Thursdaythat the concept from Elias Khalil, Pilar Baron Hidalgo and Naomi Khalil has won the grand prize of $50,000 and support services to open their bar, complete with patio and the atmosphere of southern Spain. They have a space selected, a building they will share with an art gallery at Cass Avenue and West Willis Street in the Cass Corridor neighborhood.
