The guide to the episode includes this description:
"Ann Arbor is a very comfortable and intellectual place, where people are passionate about learning, and independent thought; and boy, do they love good food, In Ann Arbor, Tom discovers why a meal at the restaurant, Afternoon Delight, is totally worth the wait; and where Bo Schembechler always went to make sure he looked good for game-day. Then, you'll see how Zingerman's Deli has created a food culture that's become almost a way of life for a lot of people, and find out about a wonderful place you can take the kids, where they can touch everything."
The show airs on a number of public TV stations across Michigan.
