Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

I have a confession; I’ve never had a Shamrock Shake™. Many years ago, I did imbibe in the green beer. I was young and in college. In those days we thought green beer was cool. Now? Not so much.

St. Patrick’s Day is next Wednesday, so get ready for a crazy weekend. Sláinte. And be careful out there!

Weekend Roundup

1. St. Patrick's Day Parade in Corktown - The 52nd annual parade begins at 2:00 p.m. on Michigan Avenue at Sixth Street. We had a great time at the St. Patrick's Day Parade last year! March 14th.

2. J. Chris Newberg - Originally from Birmingham, Michigan, this guitarist/songwriter/comedian will be rocking the Magic Bag in Ferndale. March 13th. (check out this video of J. Chris Newberg in a previous Weekend Roundup)

3. Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat - This production is being presented by The Park Players, one of Detroit's oldest community theater groups. Go, go, go, Joseph! March 12th through 27th.

4. "New" Technology - 1930 vs. 2010: It's All Relative - The Detroit Science Center is presenting this workshop at the Lorenzo Cultural Center. The hands-on workshop demonstrates that the people in the 1930's had the same technology that we have today, only slower. March 12th.

5. Food Wars Coney Island Taste-Off - The new Travel Channel show is asking fans to gather at Lafayette and American Coney Island at 5:15 p.m. They'll then march down to the Old Shillelagh for the blind taste-off. Layfayette Coney is the clear winner in Detroit Moxie's eyes! March 12th.

Don't forget that Daylight Savings Time starts this weekend!

Some awesome things to attend this weekend! J. Chris Newberg is definitely worth it. A guaranteed laugh riot. And that "New" Tech event at the Science Center is right up there with my love of gadgets!

Thanks for sharing!!!

Don't feel bad, I've never had a Shamrock shake, either. You're not the only one!

The St. Patrick's Day parade in downtown Detroit is a MUST! I've been attending for 20+ years now and it's always a good time. It's always the Sunday before the holiday so this year it is on 3/14. If you've never been, you should really check it out, however, if you are bothered by large crowds, you probably wouldn't enjoy it.

Yes, Chris is hysterical! The "new" technology workshop looked very interesting. I'm glad you enjoyed my picks this week.

Thanks! Now I don't feel like a weirdo. :)

D Pulver,
We went to the parade for the first time last year and had a blast. Enjoy!

Have a great weekend everyone!
