Best of…

As 2005 comes to a close, it is time for a little look back at the year here at Detroit Metblogs.

We went live in late July talking about the Big Tire, Cartunes and what we all love about Detroit. Oh, yea and we started bitching about drivers.

August brought post of complaints of gas prices, well wishes for New Orleans, thoughts on the primary race, the Woodward Dream Cruise, State Fair and adventures with out of town guest.

September brought the retirement of Maryann Mahaffey, fish flies, mayoral debates, adventures at the Lager House, Jazz Fest and Dally in the Alley, our first meetup, and our first controversial post on Cider Mills.

In October, we talked about Angels Night, Rosa Parks, the upcoming elections, All My Children’s Thorsten Kaye, the Detroit Marathon, Cafe de Troit’s closing, a proposed casino (most spammed post), and more sports.

Oh, and Real World Detroit… You know the Real World Detroit post is the most commented on post here at Detroit. You all have strong feelings about the idea.

November had our mayoral election, which frustrated many of us. But we enjoyed our tv watching with Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick on the Colbert Show and S. Epatha Merkerson taking a more leading role on Law and Order. The new book “American City” was discussed a couple times. Oh yea, and then the City Clerk asked for a recount because she lost the election.

Well, finals had many of us busy so we were a little quieter than usual in December. Of course, we discussed the holidays, our awful football team and the changes at United Artist Building. Jeff also started regularly posting cartoons.

What will next year bring? Well, the Super Bowl for sure but who knows what else Detroit will experience. We all look forward to the adventure.

Have a great New Year!
