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.

Hotel-A-Palooza Comes To Detroit Plus 3 Things To Know
At least three boutique hotels are coming to Detroit, bringing a dose of luxury to still-gritty parts of the city. The Mid will take shape next to the old hammer-and-nail building on Woodward, while the West Elm Hotel will incorporate the old Bonstelle Theater several blocks south. And downtown, there are plans for a new 154-room hotel at 600 West Lafayette, plus the old Park Hotel downtown just sold to a hospitality company, suggesting yet more hotel rooms could be possible. Most of the hotels include mixed-use space, including some high-end â€œluxuryâ€ housing. On todayâ€™s show, we talk about whatâ€™s driving that, and why the spate of recent hotel development still isnâ€™t enough to start landing us the really big mega-conventions and sportsball events. And on a tangent, we also dive into the idea that Detroit needs more Kroger or Meijer stores. FYI, there are some solid grocery stores here. In other news, Sterling Heights has announced the five finalists for naming the so-called â€œGolden Corridor Iconâ€ of Hall Road. Also: Ferndaleâ€™s metered parking rates, and hours of enforcement, will go up April 1 â€” no April Foolâ€™s joke here And drinking aficionado website Liquor.com hasÂ named two Detroit barsÂ at the opposite end of the spectrum among the best places to drink around the world Thanks for listening to Daily Detroit.

Inside The Beautiful Brakeman Beer Hall At The Shinola Hotel
The last piece of the new Shinola Hotel will open its doors Monday when The BrakemanÂ starts pouring beers inside its new digs on the corner of John R and Farmer in downtown Detroit. Itâ€™s part of a new wedge-shaped building that took over a former surface parking lot, and itâ€™s an airy, light-filled space, thanks to several garage-door windows that will be able to roll up when the weather warms up. On this episode of theÂ Daily Detroit podcast, spirits advisor Nuri Gocay and I speak with partners Joshua Pickard and Luke Ostrom from New York-basedÂ NoHo Hospitality Group, about Detroitâ€™s newest beer hall concept. Itâ€™ll feature a rotating list of Midwestern and Michigan craft beers, a full bar, and fried chicken and other eats from the adjacent Penny Redâ€™s. Itâ€™s definitely a nice addition to a fast up-and-coming corner of downtown. We have a bunch of pictures up on Daily Detroit as well:Â http://www.dailydetroit.com/2019/03/21/a-look-inside-the-beautiful-brakeman-beer-hall/ Find Daily Detroit andÂ subscribe on Apple Podcasts.
