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)
– 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!
