Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

Woosh! And there it went. Summer is almost over, can you believe it? Did we really have a summer this year? I’ve already seen autumnal plants out at the stores and before we know it we’re going to be carving pumpkins and singing Christmas carols. Come on, you know it’s true.

So, we better enjoy the sun and the last days of summer while we still can.

Sounds like a great weekend! I am NOT working because the Tigers are out of town. Fun Times though I doubt I will be doing anything exciting.

You already know what I'm going to post - Rockin' on the Riverfront on the Detroit Riverfront Plaza! Foghat is the headliner this Friday. Opener goes on at 8 and Foghat will be on around 9. Check out for all the details.

AND, Kenny Chesney comes to town Saturday with four other performers. His shows are very high energy and entertaining!
