Model D TV: Slows

A little over a year ago, a group of young Detroiters opened an "urban barbecue" joint at Rosa Parks and Michigan Avenue in Corktown. It's been a huge hit.

In this installment of Model D TV, director/producer Tom Hendrickson has Slows Bar BQ co-owner Phil Cooley tell the the restaurant's story, in his own words.

The segment also features the music of Detroit's own Blanche, who have a new EP, "What This Town Needs." It's available at local record shops and at, or via iTunes.
