Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

Yay! It’s October, which happens to be my favorite month of the year. “Why,” you ask? Well, first of all, it’s my birthday month. In just over a week I’ll be 40. I know, I don’t look it, thank you. But it’s true. Secondly, I love pumpkin seeds. Not the kind you buy in a package, those won’t do. I love pumpkin seeds that you roast yourself. And October is the month of pumpkins. Third, I also happened to marry my fabulous husband during the month of October.

Ok, enough about me (for now), lets get on with today’s business.

Weekend Roundup:

1. Fashion IN Detroit - This two-day fashion event makes its debut at the Detroit Zoo featuring 12 fashion shows by top designers. October 1-2.

2. The 14th Annual Great Lakes Regional Chili Cook-off and Motorcycle Bike Show - This competition in Plymouth features categories in red chili, green chili, and salsa. And there's a bike show too! October 4th.

3. The Pioneer Building 9th Annual Open Studios - The Pioneer Building is a former factory that has been converted into artists' studios. Twenty-seven artists are welcoming visitors into their workspaces. Visitors can observe how they work, see works in progress, and buy original art. October 3rd. (Hat tip to @CatherineHilker)

4. Fall Farm Festival at Kensington Metropark - Cirque Amongus will be teaching children how to juggle and walk the balance beam and traditional carpentry skills will be demonstrated. Other activities include a corn maze, hayrides, and learning about Michigan's cultural history. October 3-4.

5. The Fantasticks - The Hilberry Theater opens the season with this simple American musical about love. This happens to be one of my favorite musicals and it's the longest running Off-Broadway musical of all time. October 2-24.

Do you know of a great event going in on Metro Detroit this weekend? Add it to the comments and share it with us!

I'd love to go to the Fashion thing at the zoo...I'm such a "Project Runway" junkie! Not gonna happen, though.
Looks like it's writing, writing, writing for me this weekend.

There is also, "So you think you can dance..." at the Joe and the Tigers playing the White Sox this weekend. GO Tigers get to the post season so I can work 2 jobs still and freeze outside.

I've have always wanted to see the Fantasticks and we try to go to the Hillberry every year. Might have to go see this. Thanks for the info!
