Detroit Moxie Reader Appreciation Party!

Detroit Moxie has grown in the most amazing ways since I first launched the site back in March of 2009. The amount of people who read what I have to say, people who are looking for things to do in Detroit, and who engage either here, on Facebook, or on Twitter truly astounds me.

I didn’t do anything for my “blogaversary” partly because I wanted to do something really special for all of you. And now I am.

The Detroit Moxie Reader Appreciation Party is at The Old Miami in Detroit on 10/10/10. This party is about you; I want to thank you for all your support and kind words over the last year and a half.

The Old Miami

The Old Miami is a place uniquely Detroit. From their website:

Located at 3930 Cass Ave., Detroit, MI, 48201 Established in 1979 as a haven for Vietnam Veterans, the Old Miami has been called "the C.B.G.B's of the midwest" for it's history as a music venue. Almost every notable artist from Detroit has played on its stage as well as many national acts of the punk/modern rock era. "Miami" is an acronym for Missing In Action Michigan and the walls are lined thick with Vietnam and other military mementos, many of which were given to owner Danny Overstreet by fellow veterans. People from all walks of life call the Old Miami a home away from home. Bikers, students, bladers, musicians, lawyers and anarchists are its patrons who gravitate to this easy-going off-campus dive where live music rules.


The Old Miami also has a delightful backyard and that is where the party will take place. Take a look.

I can also announce today that we’ll be giving away some prizes at the party!

First up, The Henry Ford, America's greatest history attraction, has donated a Companion Flex yearlong membership worth $150. This membership allows two members plus two of their guests unlimited admission to both the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village for the year. You can see the full benefits here.

If that isn’t enough, The Henry Ford will also be putting together a basket with some of their signature food items. Included will be some of their beers that are made especially for them by Motor City Brew Works, Hobo Bread, and other goodies!

More surpises to come!

So, head on over to the Facebook page and let me know if you’re coming to the party! If you’re not on Facebook, no worries. Just let me know in the comments if you can make it.

When: 10.10.10 from 4pm - 8pm.

Where: The Old Miami, 3930 Cass Avenue, Detroit.

Why: To thank all of you for your support!

Nonsense: 101010 in binary is 42 in decimal. 42 is the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything. I’m only turning 41 and don't have the answers.

I’m still looking for more Detroit and Michigan based food & giveaway sponsors for the event. If you or your company are interested in donating contact me at
