Welcome to Whale Week, readers! No, this week does not concern the oversized mammals of the ocean, but rather the oversized wallets of Detroit. Let us explain: In Vegas, the highest rollers and the biggest spenders are known as Whales. Whales come in all shapes and sizes, but you can be sure of one thing: Whether a whale is winning or losing, they're doing it on an unimaginably grand scale. It is in this spirit that we bring you our first ever Whale Week, a week in which we dedicate time each day to revealing the over-the-top lifestyles of the locally lavish. Whether it's the estates these whales call home or the best spots to go whale watching, we'll bring you the best Detroit's whales have to offer. Can't get enough? Coverage spans the entire Curbed Network, so feel free to check up on whales across the country. Do you have any personal experience with these elusive beasts? Are you a whale yourself? Don't hesitate to drop some knowledge on our tipline. Otherwise, let the whale watching begin!
