Welcome to Friday! Devon O'Reilly is in and we're talking all things Detroit.

00:59 A first taste of two new places: Presley's in the David Whitney Building and Elephant and Co. in the old Founder's space in Midtown Detroit

12:16 - There's a lot of talk about elite and top colleges getting more media coverage than others. But is it in response to an alumni base that shows up? We've been talking about the big $3 billion development MSU is involved in in the city's New Center; but from feedback it's clear all people want more info on or pay attention to is the $250m University of Michigan center for Innovation. What's the real power of the Maize and Blue?

18:37 - There's a different vibe to some of the new things going in downtown. Yes, some unique stuff - but also, chains. From Chipotle to Chick-Fil-A to Dunkin, popular chains are coming back to downtown Detroit as part of a strategy to bring people down. We also discuss the 11,000+ jobs eliminated by a major employer and others switched to Warren that are changing the market down there.
