David Schwimmer Filming a Movie Today in Plymouth Starring Clive Owen

It looks like Hollywood is back in Plymouth this week with David Schwimmer (Friends) shooting a new movie around Penniman Ave. and Church St. Several of the roads in the area are closed as crews with lots of trucks and equipment work in the area. The movie is called “Trust” and stars Clive Owen, Catherine Keneer, and Viola Davis. This film is expected to be released in 2010.

With all the gorgeous tree lined avenues and beautiful historic homes in town, I’m sure we’ll be seeing more film crews around …

To learn more about available homes in Plymouth – please visit our official homepage at www.bobbake.com. If you or someone you know are thinking about moving – please feel free to give us a call for a casual conversation about the Plymouth real estate market.

Update November 23, 2009 – Apparently one of our listings, 908 Penniman, is in the movie so we had to temporarily remove one of our lawn signs today to avoid being in the shot.  Too bad – it would have been great to see one of our premier Penniman Ave. listings on the big screen! The movie crew is hard at work tonight along Forest Ave. and will be back in town in December too.

Update – Spoke to some people at lunch who mentioned that the film crews even glued leaves back on the trees. If you drive along Penniman, you’ll find a couple of trees with green leaves in front of one of the homes used for the film.

New Book about Plymouth Michigan: Then and Now Plymouth, by Brian Hill

Scan_Pic0081We just picked up a copy of Then & Now Plymouth by Brian Hill. This 95 page paperback captures Plymouth’s past to present with lots of wonderful photographs and descriptions. You can see many of Plymouth’s beautiful homes, businesses, and Churches – and read about their history and the people who built them. On page 18 you can even see the house where Carrie’s dad grew up (they no longer own it)! It’s a great read and available for $21.99 from Made in Michigan in downtown.

Update: May 19, 2010 – This wonderful in town Toy Store has been a regular destination for our family. It’s a great place to pick up the last minute birthday gift and card. They can even wrap the gift too. In fact, we’ll be stopping by today (again).

The children of Plymouth continue to eagerly await the opening of a new toy store in downtown. Located on Forest, the Genuine Toy Co. is on the verge of opening and helping to bolster Plymouth’s position as a retail and entertainment destination with an All-American small town atmosphere! What a positive statement to see so many new and diverse businesses continue to open and flourish despite the overall economy.

Plymouth’s Art in the Park 2009 is as Big as Ever

IMG00203-20090712-1149IMG00205-20090712-1154It’s that time of year again when downtown Plymouth streets are blocked off, white tents spring up, and parked cars clog all the neighborhood roads. Art in the Park is back and as strong as ever with vendors selling their goods as far as the eye can see. It was a good day for everyone – including the kids on our street selling lemonade and homemade cookies. Hopefully all the sellers and buyers did as well today too!IMG00198-20090711-1006

Nico and Vali Italian Eatery and Market in Downtown Plymouth Michigan

nicoandvaliAlthough we’ve been to Nico and Vali several times, today was especially nice since we indulged in a dessert after lunch. I had the Triple Chocolate Mouse and it was superb! The owners, Paul and Silvia DePalma, have done a great job designing their building with both indoor and outdoor seating. They offer a wide variety of food including freshly prepared items for dining it or taking out. It’s a wonderful dining experience just off downtown and really offers something new to Plymouth.

Plymouth Green Fair 2009

It was a beautiful weekend for this year’s Plymouth Green Fair. The number of tents and people seemed to be down a little this year but there was still plenty to do, see, eat, and learn about. The kids could enjoy a petting zoo, build homes using recycled materials, and have some organic food. While adults could learn about green building materials, cleaning products, hybrid cars. There was even environmentally friendly pet products – truly something for everyone! This is one of the nicer and quieter festivals that we have in downtown Plymouth.
