Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

I’ve spent the last two days exploring Detroit with the Transformation Detroit initiative presented by The Detroit Regional News Hub. They brought in local, national and international journalists to better inform them about our city.

I’ll tell you more about it in the next few days but I wanted to share this little gem from Phil Cooley, the owner of Slows Bar-B-Q who is playing a major part in revitalizing the Corktown neighborhood.

Detroit allowed me to be the best I could be. ~ Phil Cooley

With that, enjoy your weekend in Detroit!

There's the Detroit Marathon on Sunday so downtown will be pretty crowded.

Great point! There are road closures and parking is restricted on many streets. It's a good time to cheer on the runners, though.

The marathon is this weekend. And, Conquered, the After Party is for everyone in the city to enjoy...not just participants. It's going to be a great day downtown on Sunday!
