A Small Snack is the single best thing to eat, drink or do in neighborhoods of note, as curated by Ryan Maconochie, who believes there's no better way to take in all that a neighborhood has to offer—whether its your first time passing through or you've lived there for years—than to go on foot, move at a reasonable clip, and sample as you go. Enjoy a drink here, a small plate there, catch a few tunes at another place, and onto the next. Imbibe, mingle, move on.

As a curiosity seeker, map maker, coastline admirer, graphic artist and all around foodie, Ryan finds inspiration wherever he travels, whether it’s a work trip for his creative agency, D/CAL, a weekend getaway with his wife, or a slog through the back alleys of Detroit with his three kids (Hamtramck Disneyland, anyone?).

This site catalogs his various Small Snack Maps and the goods that are inspired by his roamings. Follow along @small.snack or contact for a custom map of your next adventure.
