    Yes.

    It's .... a veterans' bar? Like.. there is a bunch of Vietnam vets memorabilia. It's very much a dive, but has a huge backyard, as guedita mentioned. I didn't even realize how big until I saw videos that people had taken while there. They have a grill set up with food, the bar of course, DJs set up in the lawn (it's a Visionquest party). The only negative things I could say about it is that it was crowded and there was no shade. I have weird memories of having to use the restroom in front of a bunch of people because there were no doors... on the stalls or on the restroom itself. And also taking part of my clothing off and hanging out in the bar for a while because it was so unreasonably hot outside. There were extenuating circumstances of course.

    Apparently, before we got there, or maybe while we were there and I was not coherent, or after we left, they also had some sort of actual memorial service (being that it's on Memorial Day). I have trouble reconciling the videos from that day with what I remember the place being like.

    Just curious. Where has there been any mention of Need I Say More going on outside of this thread? I can't find any info. about it. I know it's gone on for many years but haven't seen anything for Detroit. Or is it one of those things just show up and it will be there?

    Need I Say More is happening. There was very little info about it last year other than a line-up on RA in May as Guedita said. There will be no pre sale tickets. Just $10 at the door.

    I am considering more of a pre than after party strategy this year. Thinking of doing Sat night afterparty (possibly a few hours of sleep) into Shit Show/Sunday festival then forgoing Sunday night afters for some sleep to prepare for Old Miami. I've said it before, last year Need I Say More was the highlight of the weekend for me. I'm a big fan of morning/afternoon raves.

    Does this mean that phone calls at 6AM are welcome?

    I'm also really into this morning party thing this year, though I don't know if that means pre-party or after-after party in my case.

    Look, I really wanted to go to that Magda party. I was only upset that I waited around for like 2 hours waiting for everyone else to be ready to go, then no one even went with me, and by the time I got there, it was over capacity. Fair enough reason to be annoyed, I think.

    And I don't remember being upset about it for long.

    You guys ever notice that Techno is fucking boring? It's hilarious to me that there's such a thing as tech-house. It's like, "well, both these things are boring steady 4/4 shit. Let's meld them together. OOO, could we make it really minimal too? Like, just a kick every single beat, an intermittent snare and hi-hat roll, and a faint repetitive bass line. FUCK YEAH."

    Last time I went to DEMF was 2002...

    I went with someone who was local to the area (although they had recently moved to the East Coast) and asked a similar question...

    Their advice: don't

    Fuck that. Detroit is fantastic if you know how to appreciate it. The Heidelberg Project is mandatory.

    Yea, that answer is ridiculous. Sounds like someone from the suburbs who was afraid of downtown and never really went there anyway. As for "seeing" Detroit, I'd just get out and about, though having a car would make it easier.

    For more touristy things, the Institute of Arts has one of the largest collections in the US (and is pretty close to the hotels / festival). Worth visiting for the Diego Rivera murals, but they have a pretty well rounded collection in general. (Think about how much money was coming into Detroit in the first half of the 20th Century). I've heard the Detroit Historical Society exhibits are decent too. "Greektown" is super touristy but there are a couple of OK places to eat. I went to the Motown Museum a long time ago and remember it being pretty underwhelming.

    I'd probably just focus on architecture, whether the stuff that's still standing and inhabited, or the stuff that's abandoned and in decay.

    I'm sure you've seen this stuff:
    http://www.forgottendetroit.com/
    http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/det...-1226008639304
    http://www.thecoolist.com/the-ruins-...romain-meffre/

    ^^ I'd really like to visit some of those. I don't think of Detroit as being really all that dangerous, but of course if you're going to go poking around condemned or abandoned buildings, you'd want to be careful.
