In the Media

Here’s an article that I wrote for November 2015’s Hour Detroit magazine about the bar challenge. Special thanks to Steve Wilke, Hour’s amazing editor, and to photographer Cybelle Codish for the great photos. Hour Detroit November 2015: Barchaeology 101

My appearance on WDET with Stephen Henderson all about hunting haunts in Detroit for Halloween. My interview starts at the 21-minute mark: WDET Detroit Today podcast, October 30, 2015

In December 2014, I chatted with documentarians Digging Detroit about bar history, and why we need to protect our old bars: http://diggingdetroit.com/tag/mickey-lyons/

An article for Model D, in which I mostly refuse to answer the question, but provide some interesting questions on what is Detroit’s oldest bar: Model D Media, Detroit’s oldest bar

I had a great time talking to Ontario’s Waterloo Record from the Two Way about the smuggling ties between Detroit and Ontario here: http://www.therecord.com/news-story/5215842-when-bootleggers-reigned-bullets-flew-over-waterloo/

Way back in May 2015, Digging Detroit featured the bar challenge in its infancy: http://www.dailydetroit.com.php53-18.ord1-1.websitetestlink.com/2015/05/27/detroit-survived-prohibition-detroit-can-survive-today/

The inklings of an idea for a book came to me from my work designing the Detroit Bus Company’s Scofflaws and Speakeasies tour. Here’s an article from Hour in July 2014 about that process: http://www.hourdetroit.com/Hour-Detroit/July-2014/Touring-the-Town/
