I'm at a bar in Chicago and these ladies offered to share their rice crispy treat fondu desert with me! There are dipping sauces and a skewer I can use to poke my eyes out!

Man, I know you think you sound brilliant right now, but you sound SUPER lame.
Not to say you are super lame. I'm sure you're a perfectly nice person in the real world. But pretty much everything you've said on this thread has come off as really pretentious and critical.
Maybe next time, instead of "you're trying too hard" and making everyone guess what it is you mean, you say something like "Really? Anothing Nick Saban joke? Can we get some fresh jokes around here?"
Or, like, whatever that would be in Latin.

I hadn't heard of using urban farming as a solution to blight, which is actually pretty intriguing to me.
You guys are right, though. We're essentially talking about regrowing a city, and no city starts out at 140 square miles. For services to operate properly, the population needs to be consolidated and there's not really an easy way to do that.
What they need - which has been said earlier - are people and jobs, which provides revenue which means they can start paying for things again. The nice thing is there have been signs of progress made there in midtown, downtown and a couple of other places. To me, what inspires the most optimism are things like the Riverfront projects or the Marche du Nain Rouge (which is a lot of fun if you've never been. I was in town this year for the Marche, stayed in a hotel on the riverfront, walked everywhere I needed to go and had a great time while I was at it.)
If Detroit can get the city government to a point where it can function and stay out of the way, I think the city has a good chance of attracting more people and becoming something unique. I don't think it will ever be Chicago or New York, but hopefully it can at least be Detroit.

On rocks, chased with sorrow. Also I'm watching Stephen Ranklin's BBQ U on PBS. Somebody check on me tomorrow.

Also, you suck. You are the 7 interceptions and 8 fumbles of the Internet.

...I'm going to be in Grand Rapids on Saturday. Anyone have a sports bar they love or recommend there for UM/Mass watching purposes?
Oh, also, BWW over Skeeps. I second the Arena though.
