Well, Living in Detroit has gotten really fun this weekend. Everyone's hoping we can make a good impression on the world for the Super Bowl. Rumor has it that they've done a ton work downtown to clean things up for the big event.
For those of you who don't live here, downtown Detroit normally looks like a scene from World War III. There's a lot of abandoned buildings and it's generally a very dark place. We'll it sounds like they've band-aided that for this weekend.
Sherry and I are heading down tonight to check out the festivities. It will be really nice to see the city with life pumped into it. This is a first for all of us here. We're just enjoying our day in the sun.
Now, the celebrity parties are out of control everywhere. You can forget going to a nightclub or bar. Most have been rented out for Private parties or very expensive public ones (to the tune of $1,000 a person). In any case, we're not going down for the parties, we're going to see what this city *could* be. They are having a big winter-blast street fair this weekend and who knows what big names will be playing there. Tomorrow is really the big night: Kid Rock Concert, Eminem's Shady bowl, and more. We might go down there tomorrow too.
If I see anything cool, I'll snap a pic with Sherry's Treo 650 and post them here.
