WEDNESDAY LINK-FEST: Hotels, Parking Lots, and Incinerators — OH MY.

Hello friends!  It’s a beautiful day in the D!

I’m used to vomiting a bunch of links onto my facebook that I find during the day, but in an effort to mimic KFC’s Famous Bowls and create a gray, mountainous hillock of goodness, I’ll keep ’em all here.  So, here’s what we’ve got on the docket for today:

–  Hooray!  Corktown has a new parking lot.  The heavens rejoice. (Source: Model D Media)

– From The Detroit News comes this discussion on downtown hotel occupancy.  My personal fave, the Westin Book Cadillac, seems to be emerging from a record low occupancy rate in 2008, but others (such as the Omni Riverfront) are facing the axe.

– The days of taking Detroit’s trash and burnin’ it may soon be over, but what will replace the steam supply?  My vote: put a nozzle on Monica Conyers and let her start talking.  That should do the trick. (Source: Crain’s Detroit)

– Hooray!  Detroit has a Taco Truck!  You can follow Jacques’ Tacos on Twitter as well.

– The jury is hung on Detroit 1-8-7.  Local reviewers seem to think ABC’s homegrown crime drama is finally getting it right, while national pundits are a bit more skeptical.  Personally, I saw a marked improvement from the premiere to Episode 2, but lack of DVR means I haven’t had a chance to watch last night’s show. 

That’s all from here for now — if you have any tips, links, or thoughts to share, Twit me!
