Is Detroit a Do?

Definitley not. At least not according to Glamour magazine. But hey, its not a Don’t either!

While snowed in this weekend, I decided to take some quality time with some hot cocoa and my glossy guilty pleasures. Of course, Glamour covered the United States looking for their oh-so-famous Do and Don’t photos, and forgot to stop in Detroit. It got me thinking and I don’t recall ANY type of “Best of the USA’s…” type event making a stop in the D. While it may not be the fashion/music/art/insert-other-hobby-here capital of the world, we’ve still got some good stuff to show. Come on mainstream media, stop ignoring us over here, stop on by to see what Detroit has to offer!

    we’ve made plenty of national “top 10” lists this year. fattest, most unhealthy, most dangerous, highest foreclosues, unemployment, high school drop out rate, worst roads and oddly enough if you expand to the top 50 we’re one of the best places to visit in 2008 according to the New York Times!

    I’m usually somewhat critical of Michigan and Detroit but I do have to say a few things that are awesome are a DO in Detroit:

    1) The indie music scene. Detroit isn’t New York, Seattle or Austin but Detroit is probably still in the top 10.
    2) The sports environment. Detroit bars are a lot of fun to be during Tigers or Wings games. We have a really lively and competitive college and pro sports environment.
    3) Eats. Detroit has some of the best non-chain (ethnic) restaurants. They’re usually hard to find and hidden away but if you can find them, they’re great. Again, Detroit isn’t exactly as good as New Orleans or NYC but Detroit is probably in the top 10.

    That’s all I can really think of off the top of my head.
