DISTRACT

DETROIT

Recommended Posts

Detroit trumps Ann Arbor anyday, A2 is just a college town full of well-to-do liberals.

 

I'd say start by checking out these bars:

 

Lager House

Corktown Tavern

The Bronx Bar

The Old Miami

The Magic Stick/Majestic

TV Bar

 

and see if that leads to any after-hours shit. Helps if you actually know someone there, otherwise you're done drinkin at 2am and lookin for a titty bar. Check out "The Booby Trap" on 8 mile.

if youve got a car, literally just drive around. you'll never see anything like detroit ever again in your life. it doesnt even matter where you go, its all fucked in the same way. google 'packard plant'. drive around there. find trumble, then drive around in that area. take michigan ave west, when it starts to look super fucked, pull off into the neighborhoods and watch it get worse.

pretty much anything two blocks to either side of woodward looks like lebanon.

This sounds awesome. Hopefully my Jew-Mexican hybrid appearance will help avoid a car jacking

play some blackjack at the Greektown casino. When Allen Iverson was a Piston, he would cash game checks there!

 

You should get the detroit style coney at least once while visiting. Try Lafayette coney island at 118 W. Lafayette Blvd.

Right around the cross streets of Mt. Elliot and Mack, there is an outdoor installation art display called the Heidelberg Project that has been there for decades, it takes up most of a block or more. I guess that would be worth checking out too.

if you rent a car, try to get a toyota, honda, or nissan.. and look for buildings labeled UAW, they will let you park for free.
