Has any one tried the new version of Stroh's brewed in Corktown? I thought that it was pretty good. I will purchase some more but I am not a beer
expert.
I thought that the dying Stroh's firm was purchased by Pabst in the early 1990s and that Pabst owns the right to the Stroh's name. Is this new
been being brewed in Detroit under some kind of agreement with the owner of Stroh's name. The new bottles have the traditional Stroh's logo, clearly mention that the beer is brewed in Detroit and state that the beer has
been brewed here since 1850. I note they do not say that it has been
brewed here continuously since 1850.
Stroh's survived prohibition. Maybe they can overcome the failure of the original firm.

It is being reported that Republican Candidate Donald Trumps's team is planning an early September ruins porn tour of Detroit, where retired neurosurgeon and former Republican primary rival Ben Carson would guide him on a tour of the impoverished neighborhoods where he grew up.

It is billed as a 'look what the Democrats did' attempt to woo African-American votes with whom, in some polls, he is seen attracting less than 1% support and carrying the punch line ‘What do you have to lose. Try me’.

This is a savvy forum who knows the fall of Detroit’ as well as its current revival, are very nuanced and more the result of many complicated forces beyond two party politics [including cooperation], such as de-industrialization, oil embargoes, corporate disinvestment, redlining, urban sprawl, diminution of mass transit, a school system ravaged under state management, crime, block-busting, expressways and ease of suburban living.

Questions:
So what would you put into a tour that tells that story? The wall off Eight Mile that segregated neighborhoods, bits or DSR railway sticking out on Michigan Ave, the Highland Park Model T plant and Ford HQ…?

Does this ruins porn tour risk coming off as dog-whistling 'Look what [African-American] Democrats did?'

The skateboarding icon closed on a three-unit apartment building in Detroit’s Woodbridge neighborhood on Wednesday, said Jim Tumey, a senior commercial agent at The Loft Warehouse, a Detroit-based brokerage.

While Hawk is not moving to Detroit, he and his family “wanted to put their money and their stamp on the city,” said Tumey, who finalized the sale. Hawk could not be immediately reached for comment.
The red-brick building, which is about 120 years old, was at one point a single-family home, then at another point a hospital before it was converted into apartments, Tumey said.

When Hawk and his family are in town, they plan to stay in one of the 1,200-square-foot units, while the other two units are leased.
Detroit certainly seems to have some celebrity buzz now. You've had a lotnumber high profile buy property or do other projects in the city.

Can it be?

Six new housing developments in various stages of construction opened for view Aug. 5 and 6.

Quote:

DETROIT — Next year, and for the first time in more than 60 years, city officials are expecting Detroit’s residential population to increase.

“Demand for living in Detroit is growing every day,” said Detroit Mayor Michael Duggan in a prepared statement. “Census numbers show the city’s decades of population decline is reversing.”
Quote:

Capitol Park Lofts will offer high-end apartments that range from $853 to $3,180 a month in the newly renovated Capitol Park neighborhood downtown. The building will feature a rooftop deck with a gas grill.

In the same area, The Griswold’s 9-foot floor-to-ceiling windows offer views of the city’s skyline and entertainment district. Monthly apartment rates begin at $1,500 and top out at $3,500 a month.

The Fort Shelby Residences are above the historic Fort Shelby Hotel, which first opened in 1917. Designed by famed architect Albert Kahn, the 23-story tower holds 56 condos in the city’s central business district that range in price from $280,000 to $1 million.

The luxury apartments of DuCharme Place in Lafayette Park feature direct access to the biking and walking trail known as the Dequindre Cut, and a swimming pool and deck in a roomy landscaped garden terrace. Prices range from $1,250 to $1,850 a month.

Brush Park soon will be home to two new developments, The Scott and City Modern. The Scott is located on Woodward Avenue and Erskine Street, and monthly apartment prices start at $949. City Modern will blend historic homes with modern flats and more. Both developments feature access to the new QLINE streetcar, slated to open in 2017.

Lynette Boyle, of Grosse Pointe Woods, and Ellen Mahoney, of Bloomfield Hills, were among the hundreds attending the VIP Downtown Living Tour.

“There is a shortage of housing in Detroit,” said Mahoney, a real estate broker.

“We love Detroit,” Boyle said. “There is so much happening and so much to do.”

Boom, boom, boom, boom.
I'm gonna shoot you right down,

And take you home with me.

Boom, boom, boom, boom.

One of the many things that makes Detroit such a cool city -- a floating post office. When I was 12, I played hockey with the member of the family now running the company. Great article in Sunday's New York Times:
A Mail Boat Stays Afloat

Not long after I moved downtown many years ago, I dropped in on the Westcott's HQ and had a chance to visit with Jim Sr. I bought a nautical chart to put on my wall of the Detroit River area. It's worth stopping by just for fun or to get a unique gift. They're at the foot of W Grand Blvd.

Maybe, while you're there, you'll get to see them in action. It's really crazy to see how they sidle right up to 1000 foot freighters and see the mail pail get hoisted up with their deliveries.

John Gallagher of Freep is reporting that plans to restore and repurpose the fabulous Vanity Ballroom on East Jefferson are underway.

It is very early stage but another encouraging episode in the saga of saving Detroit's architectural masterpieces. And as it is enough to get Gallagher's attention, I figure it has a chance.

I've always thought that end of Jefferson was prime for recovery. It has the solidity of the Grosse Pointes to the east and a great deal of quality old homes and new residential activity south of Jefferson.

Quote:

Elling is figuring out what to do with the building, which the city has agreed to turn over to the civic group. He’s working with community partners to help him envision what it might become. The ground floor is likely to be mixed retail, but he’s open for ideas on the legendary second-floor ballroom space.


“We’re very cognizant of the deep historical significance,” he said. “We’ve had a lot of ideas come into play that would say, could it be some sort of restaurant, could be it some sort of brewery, but I think the consensus is given the history of this building, we need to somehow maintain the integrity of that ballroom, to have it come back as sort of a community performance space in some way.”

At 3:45pm today most of Rochester has gone dark (refering to Rochester city proper, not Rochester Hills). Most businesses along Main Street closed early. The traffic lights on Main Street (aka Rochester Road, aka M-150) are being operated by generator.

Previously a resolution estimate of 11pm was given, but that since has been changed to "not available".

Multiple DTE Energy rigs could be seen in the ITC corridor that is east of Rochester Road and halfway between Avon and Hamlin.

As of this posting, most of Rochester remains in the dark.

A judge has ruled that DFT's 'sick out' was not a strike, but was free speech.

I applaud DFT's effort to call out the conditions, but feel that calling a work stoppage 'speech' is a stretch. By this logic, can any action be called 'speech'?

The Freep does not identify which the court, reporting being what it is. DY's legal panel will have to tell us if this is likely or possible to be appealed.
