Last November I attended the Detroit Lions-Green Bay Packers game at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan and thanks to the fine people at Levy Restaurants and Finn Partners, I was able to meet up with Executive Chef Joe Nader and learn about the wonderful culinary offerings that the stadium has available for its patrons.

Food at sporting events has long been thought of as overpriced and boring, with the basic staples of popcorn, hot dogs, pizza and nachos generally leading the way. However, over the past few years companies like Levy Restaurants, who operate the concessions and restaurants at over 100 venues around the world, have begun to take stadium food to the next level.

Although the staples are still popular on game day (Ford Field sells approximately 10,000 hot dogs a game), Chef Nader strives to deliver restaurant quality food throughout the stadium. To do this on a game day is no easy task. It typically sees the Chef and his team starting at 4AM and working until the stadium is cleared out. This includes preparing all the food for the 132 luxury suites, the Hall of Legends restaurant featuring the famous Chef's Table, all general concessions, a number of concept restaurants inside the stadium and catering for the press, teams and referees.

Dearborn Sausage Company is another local Michigan vendor and this year has become the official hot dog of the Detroit Lions. The quality of the product is so good that I would challenge anyone to find another hot dog as good anywhere.

You cannot talk about the Detroit Lions and Ford Field without bringing up Thanksgiving. The Detroit Lions have hosted the annual Thanksgiving Day contest since 1934, with last years game against Houston being the 73rd in the teams history. Chef Nader had a few special things planned as always on Thanksgiving. At his Chef's Table he featured a Thanksgiving station with all the fixings and they also served over 1,000 jumbo turkey legs throughout the stadium.

If you are heading down to Ford Field in the future don't just get stuffed at the tailgate, get down to the stadium early and check out some of the excellent food items available.

I would like to send out a special thank you to Chef Joe Nader for being so gracious with his time and to Sarah Janousek of Finn Partners for making this all happen.

Does commercial real estate in southeast Michigan offer the most outstanding investment potential anywhere in the country right now? Some investors think so. When the great recession fully took hold in late 2008, the entire real estate market, both locally and nationally, plummeted in price creating a once in a lifetime opportunity for all cash investors. There have been a handful of high-profile transactions in the past few months with the promise of more to come in 2012. The buyers range from out-of-town value seekers to savvy local investors. Here are two examples:

West Tech Park is one of the premiere R&D/Flex developments in the suburban west side market. It sits prominently at the corner of Haggerty Road and the busy I-696/I-275 Interchanges in Farmington Hills, Michigan. Totaling nine (9) buildings, and over 278,000 SF in size, it was originally developed in the late 1980's by a partnership of well-known local developer REDICO and TIAA-CREF, the giant teacher's pension fund in New York. West Tech Park has had a few other prominent owners over the years, including Pennsylvania based Liberty Property Trust, Iowa based Principal Life Insurance Company and of late, ETC Capital LLC, which is backed by local 5-Hour Energy entrepreneur Manoj Bhargava. ETC Capital was able to acquire West Tech Park for $8.5 million, or $30 per square foot. This is less than 50% of the cost to construct the property back in 1987, when asking rents alone topped the market at $12.00 to $13.00 per square foot. Now granted, the new Landlord will have to invest additional dollars to maintain the property and outfit it for new tenants (the property was only 32% occupied at the time of purchase according to CoStar.com), but ETC Capital will be competing for those tenants with a base investment significantly lower than many of the competing area properties. Bhargava, through another entity, recently purchased a modern Plymouth Township building formerly occupied by Johnson Controls for a mere $22 per square foot. Again, this just is a fraction of the cost to construct this building back in 1996. One can only conclude that Bhargava knows great value when he sees it, and believes in the long-term prosperity of Metro Detroit.

The unprecedented swoon in the commercial real estate market has created a once in a lifetime opportunity for value investors. It's time to buy commercial property in Detroit!
