Other Detroit Insights

So I couldn’t find this entire episode for free on YouTube, but still thought this was a good intro on Detroit to get you guys excited.  Anthony Bourdain (best known as a food critic) hosts this show Parts Unknown on CNN and one of his episodes is on Detroit.  It’s a pretty great episode that captures more than just the food scene.  He runs on the theme of what happens to a city when government doesn’t care.  If you can find the full episode, check it out.  Here’s the official site with his written synopsis on Detroit:

If you can’t find the whole thing, here’s one of the more interesting parts that he talks about… Detroit’s Lawn Mower Gang:

And he also talks about Pop-up restaurant like “Guns and Butter”:

Those are just some of the more nuanced happenings in Detroit, I’m sure you will all learn more on the trip.
