Real Detroit Weekly (often called just Real Detroit) was a weekly newspaper distributed free of charge every Wednesday from 1999 to 2014, that focused mainly on entertainment news from metro Detroit. It had a proportion of advertisements similar to the Metro Times (and even some of the same advertisers). Both publications were usually available at the same establishments. In May 2014, Real Detroit Weekly merged with the Detroit Metro Times.[1]
