all who wander are not lost

I love the kiosks all around town – they direct you down the streets that received the most clean up for the event. LOL

Heres a map of all the closed streets – all of the streets are closed…heh.

I hope folks from out of town arent supposed to think thingys like this are here all the time ! Naw – this arch was slapped up just for this week. Next week itll be who-knows-where. Maybe the scappers will nab it.

Im confused by all the tents everywhere. Its like they are so afraid that vistors will be cold, they are trying to tent in the entire downtown !

The City spent a bundle refurbing the facade of the empty National Theater for this game – but the giant tents cover it up…..Whatever – Im glad they did work on the National – its really an amazing building.

Welcome to Detroit – land of the Tent People !

We just spend the cold winters in tents up here……Actually its warm and rainy so far this month – LMAO !

  • I always heard that Saratoga Hospital on Gratiot was known as the ‘Butcher Hospital.’ Couldn’t tell you why.

  • “Since I’m not from Detroit, but really enjoy learning more about it, I have a question for all of the Detroiters. What hospital there is known as the “Butcher’s Palace”? Thx!”

    Or your just looking for the answer to the “Nights With Alice Cooper” contest.

  • Maybe they could leave the tents up after the Super Bowl so the homeless folks have a warm place to sleep…

  • Where is the Escalade – inflatable photographers signage located?

  • No one tags around downtown anymore; this isn’t 2001.

  • Here’s the notathemepark hilarious fact o’ the day. Jerome Bettis, (RB for the Pittsburgh Steelers) who is a native of Detroit was given the key to the city of Detroit yesterday. The last person to recieve such an honor was in 1980 when the key was given to…SADDAM HUSSEIN! Please tell me that Detroit has changed the locks since then! Hilarious!

  • I was looking at those kiosks on Friday and wondered how long they would go without the incessent tagging that happens all over everything else around town. Pretty cool though.
