I love the fact that Detroit is right next to Canada. Having the ability to watch CBC and some of their newscasts is so refreshing (especially now with the Olympic coverage). I'm sure there are other advantages of living here as well besides the obvious ones exploited during Super Bowl (lower drinking age, totally nekkid dancers, Cuban cigars, etc.).

Exotic fast food offerings.
The word "eh".

I was going to mention the nekkid strippers as well...so I'm forced to dig deeper and mention "happy endings"

I think of a lot of things when Windsor is said, diversity ranks pretty far down the list. It's about as diverse as Detroit, and that's not saying much. lol

Sometimes the greatest blessings are the least obvious - we are friends and at peace for 191 years [other than an vigilante incursion into Winsdor by a bunch of American drunks in 1837].

Think of Berlin during the wall, Nicosia in Cyprus today, Sarajevo in the recent Balkan war and we can see how blessed we are. Instead of death and hostilities we are neighbors trading in fun and laughter.

I hope the day comes soon when our border can become like those of the even former enemies of Europe are now, open to free movement with no impositions by border guards.

Honestly what are good bars in windsor? Exclude all the bars that are flooded with 19yo. I wouldnt mind a nice trip to windsor with maybe little more mature crowd(mid to late20's or early 30'2). I wouldnt mind a places thats flooded with canadian women so I can try to get my canadian citizenship.

I still want to know why our Canadian neighbors are savvy enough to accept US money (at a great discount of course) and most of our downtown (presumably the closest to Canada) businesses scoff at the idea of taking Canadian money? Sure it's a slight pain in the butt to do the math, but the Detroit business owners still have to take the money to the bank for depositing. Shouldn't they turn the Canuck bucks there in the exchange & earn a little extra like our neighbors do?

Just an observation.

"Honestly what are good bars in windsor?"

Phog lounge is a great place to see local Canadian bands. Its a smaller bar and the good thing about it other then music is it's moslty filled up with locals.. Its on University, just off Quellette downtown.

Being able to watch CBC, Hockey Night in Canada (Don Cherry),and good beer. Most important, its nice having your home country only a short drive away..

About Windsor and diversity, it's been called the 4th most diverse city in Canada. It's a hard thing to measure though; I think they use percent of the population that's foreign-born.

Anyway, I live in London now which has to be one of the whitest cities around. At least in Windsor, there are ethnic districts in town like Little Italy, Asian, Arabic, etc.

Sunday nights in Windsor were always spent at The Loop (above Coach and Horses). Not a lot of Americans (no 19 year olds), but you have to like disco. The girls certainly seem to. Always had a good time there.

Changez used to be good back in the day (off of Wyandotte), but I hear it's trying to make a comeback. Used to play alternative and pop, with some industrial mixed in. For the same flavor, Luna in RO would be its twin.

I hear there are a few new bars right on Riverside that are pretty cool, but I haven't been yet. The 2 above I went to pretty much every weekend when I resided on that side of the river. Good times..

The best thing I love about CBC during the Olympics is that even though they're a Canadian station, they're not just playing Canadian footage of the events! They almost report upon many of the events without much fanfare or nationalism, whereas NBC at times seems to be stuck in this nationalistic pride thing by showing JUST US Olympians. There are wonderfully compelling stories all around these games. Thank goodness for CBC!

Not just playing Canadian footage? One of the biggest disapointments of my life, and the last time I watched or plan to watch the Olympics, was during the opening cerimonies of the Athens games. CBC covered the entrance of every country up to Canada without mentioning so much as a single individual athelete, and then proceeded, when the Canadaian marched in, to forget the remainder of the countries, and then offer the life story of every Canadian athelete who so much as licked the bootstraps of another Canadain athelete. My first impulse was: "Don't the rest of the countries count for anything?", and it hasn't much changed today.
As far as I'm concerned the Olympics are a strange and mostly unattractive combination of overgrown high school quarterbacks and overblown national pride, but carried to downright harmful extents. The message is "Success comes from being strong, fast, agile (as opposed to educated, intelligent, broad-minded), and only our atheletes have been pitted against everyone else's. Cheer for the homeland."

Oh, and Blitz, London may not be the most diverse city in the world, but it's not compleatly off the scale. Most notably, the city boasts the largest proportion of Arab citizens of any Canadian city. The Greek community is also significant, and my great uncle came from the Italian one.

Detroit-Windsor is one metropolis. The Canadian-American border is a social fiction that does more harm than good, but in the end can be largly ignored. It really should be done away with altogether, but that probably wouldn't find the approval of people further from the edges of the two states.

Breathe Art Theatre Project(est. 2004): Committed to the principle of contemporary programming through the collaboration of Windsor/Detroit actors, directors and designers, Breathe Art Theatre Project's mission is to advance the spirit of contemporary social theatre in its community by nurturing and supporting artists, encouraging repeatable creative relationships, and offering a skilled environment for established and developing artists from the Windsor/Detroit community. Breathe Art is dedicated to perpetuating an ethic of mutual respect within our communities and across our borders.


Breathe Art Theatre Project brings theatre alive with the sounds of rock 'n' roll with the outrageous and sexy contemporary cult smash, Hedwig and The Angry Inch by John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask. Hedwig and The Angry Inch will run cross-border, taking the stage March 3 and 4 at the Loop Nightclub in Windsor, and then March 10 to the 26 at Detroit's 1515 Broadway. Hedwig and the Angry Inch will be directed by Valerie Bonasso, featuring Kevin Young and Katie Galazka.

"The most exciting rock score written for the theater since, oh, ever!"
---Time Magazine

In the form of a stand-up comedy / cabaret, this groundbreaking, award-winning smash tells the story of "song stylists" Hedwig Schmidt, who happens to be the victim of a sex-change operation which has left her with just "an angry inch." Using songs and outrageous and hilarious monologues, Hedwig tells her story of love, loss and individuality.

Benjamin, you're just noting the opening ceremonies of the Olympics. Those ceremonies are just a splash as to what the games are really about. Watch the actual competition; CBC shows plenty of other countries besides Canada- a heckuva lot more than NBC and their delayed coverage.

Obviously you're not into the benefits that participating in an elite level sport can produce. And if there was one place where pride for one's homeland can be somewhat harmless , it's the Olympic games. Why not cheer for one country's athletes? And I even cheer for those country's that still send their best athletes even though they have no chance to obtain a medal- what an honor that would be to represent your country! These athletes in their attempts should be cheered during their moment.

I'm just thankful that CBC shows it and people over here in Detroit can enjoy it.

As for the question about about the Tunnel BBQ - Yes they are in recievership, but no they aren't closing anytime soon. They are still open and working through the recivership.

However, if you don't come eat there than it will go away. Come show some love and spend some $$$ if you like it. Declining visits from the Yanks post 9/11 was one of the factors for recivership.

Best things about living in a border city -- with respect to transportation:

- It takes minutes to get from downtown Windsor to the downtown core of one of America's largest cities

- You can take public transit that costs only a few dollars to go between Canada and the United States

- More options for flying in and out of the area with regularly scheduled flights to and from both Metro and Windsor airports

- Duty free gas at the bridge!

Great call on the duty free gas at the bridge! I'll tap my tank down to dang near empty before I go & fill up. With the average price of gas being what it is now and the gas station at the Ambassador Bridge being on average a dime less than any other gas station in town, it's an absolute bargain.

Not to mention you can get bread, eggs & milk for a buck apiece. I've never had the nerve to go grab a snadwich from their little vending wagon outside the duty free shop though.

Benjamin, I'm not sure what you're talking about regarding London and Arab citizens. Here's the stats...

London metro (pop 427,000)...6100 of Arab descent
Windsor metro (pop 305,000)...7800 of Arab descent

Windsor has that large Arab enclave east of downtown (Begley school is now over 50% Arabic).

Getting both Wings, Leafs, and Habs (en francais) on free tv, Wings and Leafs games on the radio, and Tigers and Jays games on both radio and tv.

Getting to collect all of those coupons from the Bridge (that you cannot use on gas), and having the thrill of scratching the card and always getting 50 cents off.

If you live on the Canadian side: you get the major American networks without paying for cable, and you get amazing views of Detroit's skyline.
