Adventures in Michigan
In search of America's most bizarre attractions, we journey from Illinois and across the Midwest to Michigan, epicentre of America's industrial heartland. Amidst the vast clutter of mundane car museums and tire factories, we discover four seriously strange roadside attractions, worthy of your visitation:
1. Pet Casket Factory Tours: Gladstone, Michigan
Choose the wrong coffin for your cat or dog and you could seriously compromise the quality of their afterlife. Chose the right one however, and they'll be happily sniffing crotches and scratching furniture in pet heaven for eternity.
If you're clueless about how to pick the right resting place for your pet, a visit to Gladstone's Pet Casket Factory is a must. Here you'll learn the inns and outs of pet coffin selection, and gain first hand insight into the manufacturing process.
4. World Champion Cow Grave At An Insane Asylum: Traverse City, Michigan
During her lifetime, Colantha the cow pumped out more milk than any other bovine on record. Her milk filled thousands of glasses, graced countless cereal bowls, and helped bake cookies for families across the nation.
How better then to honour this world record setting cow then by laying her to rest in a grave site set on grounds of Michigan's larges insane asylum (now defunct). If the story of Colantha's life and death doesn't put you in a melancholy mood, the decaying brick, chained porches, and bared windows of the surrounding institution certainly will.

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.
