Of the 2008 Liedl's Bronzed Shrimp:
The "Are We Sure We're Not in Sarajevo?" award for Worst City Visited in 2008:
Goes to ... Detroit.

Between the barren skyscrapers (with 800-foot Verizon banners covering one side of the building), the bizarre Irish tavern / Soul Train dance party bars, the permeating sense of despair and hopelessness, and the fact that it was a minor miracle that our crew escaped from the Motor City without a death, mugging, or rape ... pretty nice town you've got there.
