Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

Sorry, I couldn’t help myself. I included two extra events this week. You’ll just have to deal with it.

Don’t forget that Father’s Day is this Sunday. So, an early Happy Father’s Day to my Dad!

We're going to check out the DSO and the Wizard of Oz show! It will be interesting to see how they deal with a movie that isn't a silent flick, although the DSO is accompanying a silent Mary Pickford film later this summer as well.

How is the Allied Media Conference, with all its exciting art and activism events, not listed??

Yes, the Allied Media Conference is happening this weekend too! I generally don't include conferences in the Weekend Roundup.

Have fun watching the tug boats!
