Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

What is going on in Metro Detroit this weekend? Here are a few options:

1. Funnyman and hometown boy, J. Chris Newberg is playing two shows at the Magic Bag on Friday. On his website he describes himself as a “guitarist/songwriter-cum-comedian.”

There are 2 reasons I’m recommending him this weekend. The first is that we went to high school together and during that time I blamed something on him. He didn’t get in trouble for it, but still, I feel guilty. Secondly, he’s really funny. Check him out! August 7th.

2. I know the Detroit Lions suck, they haven’t been good since I’ve been alive. But they are having an open practice at Ford Field on Saturday. The players will be signing autographs as well. It’s free but you do need a ticket, check the Lions official site for details. August 8th.

3. The 5th Annual Ferndale Green Cruise celebrates alternative forms of transportation and the people that use them. Learn how to be green while having fun at the same time. August 8th.

4. Rock Stars' Cars & Guitars 2 at The Henry Ford has been going on all summer but you only have a few weeks left to catch this exhibit. There are over 20 cars and 50 guitars on show. Through September 7th.

Friday 7-10pm: Opening party for the new Exposure.Detroit photo exhibition at the Bean & Leaf Cafe in Royal Oak. All photos are images of Detroit and why we should be proud we live here.
The Exhibit will be on display for about 3 months.
