Detroit Day: An Introduction – January 26th, 2007
For our first Detroit Day, students from the University, and some of the SiD Planning Team members, went to the city for a walking historical/architectural tour led by guides from Preservation Wayne.  ß (can we hyperlink this?) Though the weather was less than ideal, the 15 students and our two guides bravely traipsed through the slush to learn more about the city and the history behind it and its great buildings. The day ended on a much warmer note as we made our way to Slow’s Barbeque in Corktown for some delicious (not to mention warm) food before heading back to Ann Arbor.
