Car rental pick up/dropoff times at DTW?

Hello - I know that Detroit is experiencing some heavy flooding this week, but I am planning travel in the next many weeks there, and reading about hours-long waits to pick up and or return rental cars to other destinations is making me a little anxious about how it is there (under non-flooding conditions.) Has anyone been there recently and picked up a rental car at the airport?

Where to find event listings and fun things to do - Detriot

What online resources can I check out to learn what's going on in Detroit/Ferndale this weekend? Google isn't turning up the kind of information I am looking for.

Moreso, I am looking for fun hipster appropriate listings such as dive bars with themed Karaoke the 1st Saturday of every month, fun retro dance parties with a diverse crowd every Friday at XX location, special sing-along showing of Grease at XX theatre Sunday afternoon.... Suggestions?

Detroit in small bites

In a week, I'll be heading to Detroit with a few high schoolers as part of my denomination's Youth Gathering. With over 30,000 Lutherans heading to town, my people will be everywhere. However most of our events start after 12 noon, which will leave me and the youth with mornings to kill. What in Downtown Detroit should we see? Where should we eat? What shouldn't two 16 year old guys miss?

Car registered and insured in two states.

I have a car with a loan I am currently paying that is titled, registered, and insured in Ohio (I am an Ohio resident). I would like to give this car to my grandfather and continue to pay on it, but he is a resident of Michigan. Can I register and insure the car in both states so that he can drive it legally in Michigan?
