The Book Cadillac Building

In this episode Alex fixed up some "CrabApples" (Spiced Rum + Cider) and tells Jess all about the Book Cadillac building in Downtown Detroit. He reveals the history of its construction as part of a plan to break world records (but only held the title for a short time.) The Book brother's (owners) later planned to build an even taller tower nearby to break world records. Why wasn't it ever built? Tune in and find out!
