Aniruddh Gala wants to provide escapades of gastronomic delight for interested Ann Arbor denizens and visitors. By the Sidewalk, Gala’s new business venture, will offer two-and-a-half to three-hour walking tours of one to two miles that include information about Ann Arbor history, architecture and culture (as well as trivia) and stops for sampling at various Ann Arbor eateries. Cost is $47 for an all-inclusive tour, limited to 16 people. Initial tours cover Kerrytown and downtown at midday on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Gala hopes to expand to Tuesdays through Thursdays while also adding locations. While Zingerman’s, Argus Farm Stop and Isalita are listed as food partners, Gala doesn’t reveal the itinerary for each tour, to provide moments of surprise and discovery even for experienced Ann Arborites.
