Come Dance On The Grave Of Detroit's Trash Incinerator Plus 10 Things To Know Around Detroit
If youâ€™ve ever event spent any time outdoors within a mileâ€™s radius of it â€” say, in Midtown or Eastern Market â€” then youâ€™ve no doubt smelled the sickly sweet odor of the Detroit trash incinerator. Well, no more. 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 itâ€™ll take up to 90 days to fully power the trash-to-energy facility down. Mayor Mike Duggan says heâ€™s committed to making sure the site never again serves as a waste incinerator. Whatâ€™s next for that property, which is owned by the city, isnâ€™t yet clear. One novel idea comes from our friend Frank Nemecek over at the Warrendale Blog:Â Make every strip club in the city move there, like an amusement park of T&A. Moving on: The measles outbreak is now 22, which is an incredible thing to write in the year 2019, when weâ€™re also developing driverless automobiles Lisa Ludwinski of Sister Pie (weÂ interviewed her here) and Zingermans Roadhouse are finalists for prestigious James Beard Awards People are losing their minds over a Chick Fil A popup downtown Developer Woodborn Partners plans a $16 million mixed-use development on Bagley in Mexicantown Marshall Mathers sent out the following all-caps tweet about the new American Alliance of Football Backers of a bid to refurbish Hamtramck Stadium, the former home of the Negro Leagueâ€™s Detroit Stars, hit their $50,000 crowdfunding goal and will celebrate Saturday at Baker Street Car Bar A tall ship is coming to Detroit this September, and you canÂ get tickets for a ride The 6,000 square-foot space that formerly housed Gayleâ€™s Chocolates in Royal Oak will get a ginormous coffee shop, with a second-floor kiddie play space We run down a bunch of the changes and improvements to the Avenue of Fashion on Livernois And Stacey Hotwaxx Hale and John Collins are spinning at Motor City Wine this Saturday, starting at 9 p.m. Listen to ourÂ interview with Hale here.

Axle Brewing Falls Prey To Daunting Craft Beer Economics, Plus 7 Things To Know
Welcome to a bonus Friday edition of your Daily Detroit. Today, we discuss the sad news that Axle Brewing will shutter its Livernois Taproom June 30th, barely two years after it first opened. Dave Phillips, one-half ofÂ Podcast DetroitÂ and theÂ IT in the DÂ podcast, and himself a former partner in a failed craft brewery, joins us to discuss how difficult it is to succeed in an uber-competitive sector, where even established brands have to fight for shelf space, and drinkers like me fret about overabundance. Axle President Dan RileyÂ told theÂ FreepÂ the brand doesnâ€™t have the scale or cost structure to see a â€œclear pathâ€ to turning a profit. Elsewhere: Detroit may be dealing with a serial killer after three women believed to be prostitutes were found dead in abandoned homes on the cityâ€™s east side. Tipsters are asked to call (313) 596-2260. [Detroit News] Thereâ€™s an update on Dan Gilbert, nearly two weeks after the billionaire real estate developer suffered a stroke.
