Stranger in a strange land
Waiting for Godot
Actually, I misspoke. Downtown Detroit is much larger than Manhattan. Also many of the bars/restaurants listed by the CVB are separated from downtown proper by vast swaths of open/desolate acreage, sometimes more than a mile away. They are clustered in the "Corktown" area near the torn-down Tiger Stadium (5 bars/restaurants), and Greektown, a single block with a few Greek restaurants on one side, a casino on the other. I didn't write this to "boost" Memphis. I wrote it to point how inaccurate the oft-stated comparison of Memphis to Detroit is.
Um, fellas, you're commenting on the 2009 Best of Memphis. Jesus.
mphismidtwnr, did you actually READ the column? Just curious as to where you see any demonizing of your position.
Yo Cool, you forgot to change IDs before patting yourself on the back. And, for the record, I think Westend Girl was being sarcastic. Must be some dumbass in the air tonight.
Nope. Not fake.
This is a funny and insightful column. Bruce VanWyngarden should stay on vacation for another couple weeks. At full pay.
You are correct ttboy. Fixed.
