Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

I'm a bit exhausted today from TEDxDetroit so my mind isn't functioning properly and I can't be all witty and such. Not that I usually am.

All I'm going to say is that there are so many cool things to do in Detroit that you could never get bored.

Oh, and I found this quote that I liked from SPIN Underground USA, 1997. I'd love to read the context from which it came but couldn't find anything in the Google machine.

When people talk about Detroit, what they really mean is anything east of Ann Arbor...

2. Rainbow Blight & Slow's Bar-B-Q 5th Anniversary Party - This big party takes place in front of Michigan Central Station and proceeds will go to building a skate park in Roosevelt Park. Music, over 30 different beers on tap, food from Slow's, cornhole and more! October 3rd.

Awesome art going on in Midtown on Friday night...including the CCS art parade and the Satin Dolls! Gallery crawl is going to be lots of fun.
