A Beautiful Weekend in Detroit

The weather was gorgeous here in Detroit this weekend and I had a fabulous time checking out a few events. And the Detroit Lions won! Seriously.

Saturday night we hit the Street Culture Mash launch at the 5E Gallery. It was great to see Mike Han and his Street Culture Mash brand in their element. I’m a huge Keith Haring fan so I loved seeing his influence in icons work. The new Street Culture Mash t-shirts are very cool, be sure to grab one.

The 5E Gallery is such a little gem on the north end of Corktown in Detroit. What they have done with the space in such a short period of time is pretty incredible. They also have an open mic night called The Foundation every Tuesday night.

Next, we headed to Detroit Harmonie at the Virgil H. Carr Cultural Arts Center in Harmonie Park. The multi-cultural event showcased the food and entertainment of different cultures that are prevalent in the Detroit area. We ran into some friends and tasted our way around the globe while taking in the entertainment.

The Virgil H. Carr Cultural Center, originally The Harmonie Club, is a Beaux Arts style building with amazing spaces. I can’t wait to delve in and explore it.

Sunday began with brunch at La Dolce Vita. If you haven’t been here on a Sunday afternoon you’re missing out.

The Old Miami was our last stop of the weekend. The Detroit Moxie Reader Appreciation Party was a huge success and I want to thank everyone that came out to join us.

All in all, it was a beautiful weekend in Detroit!

An excellent weekend indeed. I'm really happy that you and Mike put on events at two of my favorite places in Detroit. Thanks!

Dominique & Hubert,
You're most welcome. I'm so happy you guys came out and had a good time. It was truly a great weekend all around. I'm always happy to shine a light on places some might not know about and everyone that hadn't been to The Old Miami before was delighted with the place. I'll be spending a lot more time both at The Old Miami and the 5E Gallery.
