Also, the reason the Indians sold Greektown to Dan Gilbert is because it was losing money.



And nobody corrects this shit over there...

Because it's pointless to try and correct them.

As a guy who scarcely drinks, I'm relatively underwhelmed at the proliferation of these places-- that they're new taxpaying businesses, fine. But beyond that, the totally-awesome! angle escapes me. What are craft beers?


Really??

No, it simply is not possible that anyone on the internet calling them selves "Hypestyles" is unaware of craft beers. I'm calling bullshit on this with you.

http://www.captainsblog.info/2012/02...am_avg_attend/

And here's the actual data- this is average attendance per season, per team, for all years, for entire MLB.

Detroit is closer to the bottom than the top. It's a bit unfair, in that attendance has gradually risen over time, so the old-school teams will have somewhat lower weighting. But Detroit has not really been a positive outlier in terms of attendance until very recently.



You stupid fuck.

Talk about worthless statistics. Oakland County could have a 5% unemployment rate even if there were not a single job in the entire county.


Do we have to come back over there and re-explain per capita and percent?

Check out "The Cabbage Patch" in Grosse Pointe Park. Lots of nice rentals there and it is a very safe area as long as you don't get too close to Mack Avenue or Alter Road.

I think this probably isn't true. When people move to the suburbs, as most are apt to do, they are likely to consider things like family, caregiving and the like. If you're moving to some random suburb in Illinois or Ohio, you might as well do it in Michigan, because suburbs are more or less the same, but the advantage in Michigan (provided you're from Michigan) is proximity to family and caregive
rs.

Certainly some stay in their out-of-state metros, and move to their local suburbs. My anecdotal sense is that lots of 20-somethings are single in other cities, and end up 30-something and coupled/with children back in Michigan.


Now if you hate suburbia, and desire an urban environment, no, you likely won't be moving back. But kids tend to change everything. When they're part of the equation, it doesn't really matter if you find urban areas more interesting, it's just a hell of a lot more difficult raising kids in the city, and your priorities totally change.

I think there are plenty of people acknowledging that Novi kind of sucks, yet, at the same time, Novi is a much easier place to be married with kids than some urban yuppie neighborhood.


Is he fucking serious...or is this just some elaborate trolling? Lets walk through this; Move to Chicago after college, get that first job, get into a career track, marry the person you met there or moved there with, get your place in Lakeview or wherever the cool yuppies are hanging these days, get around to having kids. Then, according to BHam - they will all now throw way a decade-ish of career, network and, life to move back to Oakland County?

I'm sure there are those that do it...I'm doubting it was a first choice or planned that way. I mean I know a few who's jobs went away in "real city" and landed back here because mom or dad had connections here and I know a couple that had a gaggle of kids and needed the family support. But I can't think of any who moved back because they wanted to raise kids here over "real city" metro of their choosing.

Ok so lemme get this straight.

We can't party on Belle Isle anymore, or a local park for that matter because they are supposed to be "family friendly" (whatever THAT means). Can't go to the riverfront without a thousand cops hanging around harassing people. Can't drag race or park and hang (like at Chandler park). Can't take your dog to the park with your people without getting it shot. Can't let you or your kids walk down the street with more than 2 friends or it constitutes a gang. Can't smoke weed anywhere in a neighborhood with a nosey neighbor or you might lose all of your valuables to police theft, otherwise known as forfeiture. Can't hang out in any establishment after 2am that has alcohol or you might lose your car to forfeiture. Got rid of the Halloween spot, check. Getting rid of John's Carpet House, check.

So in other words, I can't be a grown person, hanging out with other grown persons, doing grown people shit in places other than my house or my block. So lets force all of the people who like to do anything other than ride their bike with their helmet on, sit at church on sun morn or wait in line at Slow's to congregate in places that are perceived as safe enough to be the last resort. Our block.

And now we want to go after that as well. Tell me, why the fuck did I move to Detroit again?



Sounds like this fucking imbecile moved to Detroit so he could do a lot of things that are against the law pretty much everywhere.

A few things are missing in that screed. Things like outdoor target practice in the backyard, dog fights, growing dope, selling dope, urinating on public streets, and burning trash in the driveway. Yeah, Detroit, where fun goes to die.

I don't see The Gp's as being suburb any longer. It has become an enclave. An enclave with it's back to the wall of water.


This whole GP thread is a steaming pile of stupid. Some are predicting the collapse of the Pointes because of the gun fire. Gannon's little quips do nothing to dissuade it. It's like his 5 years in GPP have made him soft. And everybody thinks Danny is not brain damaged.

F. Bistro was too upscale for this spot. I always thought a Panera Bread or something similar would do great there.



Yeah, they should bring back that dump of an Au Bon Pain. Crosspost to Detroit is Cheap.

So, you were the beloved Tom, or are you saying that they didn't give a shit and still don't because you're not on the list?

No one ever gave a shit about me over there. No one, that is, until I called one of the toadies a bootlicker during one of the purges, then it was all "off with his head" and stuff.
Soon I discovered that this rock-thing was true...
