Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

Here we are at the last weekend in August and it stills feels like we never had a real summer. I think it’s actually time to embrace autumn and put the shorts and t-shirts away and pull out the sweatshirts. I mean, the cider mills are opening!

Weekend Roundup

1. Yates Cider Mill - This lovely cider mill in Rochester Hills is my favorite in the area, I've been going here since I was a kid. So line up for your cider and donuts and take a walk on the trail. Opens August 29th.

2. Michigan State Fair - I haven't been to the State Fair since I was a child but the smell of malt vinegar on french fries always brings back those memories. Rides, livestock, food, and entertainment. August 28th through September 7th.

3. 4th Fridays with Ford - Enjoy concerts in Campus Martius througout the day topped off with a showing of the movie Purple Rain at dusk. August 28th.

4. Hockeyfest 2009 - Hockey season is right around the corner and this interactive festival will get Detroit Red Wings fans excited. August 28th & 29th.

5. Leon & Lulu's Artists' Market - I absolutely love this store and this weekend they are showcasing local artists. There will also be entertainment and skating waiters! August 30th & September 1st.

I am not going to the Hockeytown thing. I know a shocker but I am working the ballpark and would never leave the Joe if I went. I am too broke to spend money so I would be in hockey heaven and dreaming instead of reality.

If you go to the Cider Mill give me a call. I haven't gone in a long time and would love to go.

I wholeheartedly agree about the lack of summer. Incredible. I never really thought the cool weather would stick around, but alas, here we are with cool weather again and August is drawing to a close. I'm looking forward to cider and apple picking though. I plan to put up lots of homemade applesauce again this year.

Love, love, *love* Yates Cider Mill! Getting to walk down the trail by the creek with a cup of freshly made cider and a warm cinnamon sugar doughnut -- that's fall right there.

For those wishing to visit the State Fair, this might be the last year, so take advantage!
