Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

The calendar is playing a fun trick on our livers and stomachs this year with Paczki Day and St. Patrick’s Day falling so close together. The Metro Times Blowout, Paczki Day, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, and St. Patrick’s Day all fall within a week and a half time frame.

Be careful out there and pace yourself!


Weekend Roundup

1. Countdown to Paczki Day Celebration - Paczki Day (March 8th) is just around the corner. Head down to Hamtramck for this annual celebration complete with Mr. Paczki, free samples of the glorious fried goodies, and Paws from the Detroit Tigers. March 5th.

2. Metro Times Hamtramck Blowout - Now in its 14th year, the music event promises 200 local bands at 14 venues over 4 nights. Hamtown will be rocking this week! March 2-5.

3. Dearborn SOUP (Facebook link) - Inspired by Detroit Soup, the monthly dinner will fund micro-grants for projects in the community. Local entrepreneurs with creative ideas in arts, humanities, or green initiatives will receive funding for their projects. March 6th.

4. Sweet on Maple Sugaring - Do you love maple syrup? Five Huron-Clinton Metroparks have programs throughout the month of March that will show you the process of how trees are tapped and sap is collected. Some of the programs even offer breakfast! March 5-6, continuing throughout the month.

5. The Moth StorySLAMS - The theme for this month is Animals. Prepare a 5-minute story or just sit in the audience and be entertained. March 3rd.
