Detroit’s New Big Three

In regards to the photograph posted below, it is interesting to read Max’s comment that the big three in Detroit is now MGM, Greektown, and Motor City Casinos. Of the thousand jobs advertised as being created, I wonder if Detroit will be attracting gaming/hospitality professionals from outside the metro-Detroit area or from within. Some find it disconcerting that Detroit is being poised as a gaming destination. However, gaming composes merely a fraction of the offerings that is making Detroit an entertainment destination. I’m off to Vegas soon, for the first time, and I’ll let you know if my opinions are swayed.

    i have to spend a week in Las Vegas every fall for business and i am reasonably sure that Detroit will NEVER attract people like that city does. although it would be awesome to see Woodward Avenue packed with tourists each and every day of the week and at all hours i really never see that happening here. the Super Bowl proved that given the right event people will brave the weather but there just isn’t enought o do here. Las Vegas is, for those that have not been, overwhelming. beyond gambling there are museums, restaraunts, concerts, shows and just about everything else…all 24 hours a day, every day.

    You will enjoy your trip to Nevada Mollika. Vegas’ is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. You don’t have to be a gambler to have fun.
