Automatic TRANSCRIPT

<p>If you’ve ever event spent any time outdoors within a mile’s radius of it — say, in Midtown or Eastern Market — then you’ve no doubt smelled the sickly sweet odor of the Detroit trash incinerator. Well, no more.</p> <p>Detroit Renewable Energy, the umbrella organization that owns and operates it, says it is shutting the incinerator down 33 years after it first fired up because of finances and complaints from the community. Operations will cease this week, but it’ll take up to 90 days to fully power the trash-to-energy facility down. Mayor Mike Duggan says he’s committed to making sure the site never again serves as a waste incinerator.</p> <p>What’s next for that property, which is owned by the city, isn’t yet clear. One novel idea comes from our friend Frank Nemecek over at the Warrendale Blog: <a href= "https://www.warrendaleblog.com/2019/03/what-is-next-for-detroits-incinerator.html">Make every strip club in the city move there</a>, like an amusement park of T&A.</p> <p>Moving on:</p> <ul> <li>The measles outbreak is now 22, which is an incredible thing to write in the year 2019, when we’re also developing driverless automobiles</li> <li>Lisa Ludwinski of Sister Pie (we <a href= "http://www.dailydetroit.com/2018/07/19/listen-sister-pies-lisa-ludwinski-talks-pie-new-cookbook-west-village/">interviewed her here</a>) and Zingermans Roadhouse are finalists for prestigious James Beard Awards</li> <li>People are losing their minds over a Chick Fil A popup downtown</li> <li>Developer Woodborn Partners plans a $16 million mixed-use development on Bagley in Mexicantown</li> <li>Marshall Mathers sent out the following all-caps tweet about the new American Alliance of Football</li> <li>Backers of a bid to refurbish Hamtramck Stadium, the former home of the Negro League’s Detroit Stars, hit their $50,000 crowdfunding goal and will celebrate Saturday at Baker Street Car Bar</li> <li>A tall ship is coming to Detroit this September, and you can <a href= "http://www.detroithistoryclub.com/events/tall-ship-tour-on-the-detroit-river-1?fbclid=IwAR1y8MH4ep0xZoW8RjgmpTQhRXCFeDpjeqfX5jT6DuO0S8juRK_aovvO3tg">get tickets for a ride</a></li> <li>The 6,000 square-foot space that formerly housed Gayle’s Chocolates in Royal Oak will get a ginormous coffee shop, with a second-floor kiddie play space</li> <li>We run down a bunch of the changes and improvements to the Avenue of Fashion on Livernois</li> <li>And Stacey Hotwaxx Hale and John Collins are spinning at Motor City Wine this Saturday, starting at 9 p.m. Listen to our <a href= "http://www.dailydetroit.com/2017/10/27/podcast-godmother-house-music-stacey-hotwaxx-hale/">interview with Hale here</a>.</li> </ul> <p>Thanks for listening.
