Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

This has to be the best time of the year in Detroit. The Tigers are playing and the Detroit Red Wings are in the NHL playoffs for the 20th year in a row. Let’s go Red Wings!

My brother, husband, and myself with the awesome Gordie Howe.

The "Other" Burgundy - The Wines of Cru Beaujolais...

While many people think of Beaujolais as a light picnic wine that needs to be served chilled to be enjoyed, the Crus, especially in an exceptional vintage like 2009, can be outstanding - with structure, elegance, and ageworthiness comparable to even some 1er Cru Burgundies. These wines, hand picked by Elie Boudt of Elie Wine Company in Royal Oak, are no exception as they have all scored over 90 pts each!

If you love French wines, don't miss this rare opportunity to savor the wines of Cru Beaujolais paired with our acclaimed cuisine on Friday, April 15, 2011 at 6:30p.m.

Opening Friday, Breathe Art Theatre Project is proud to present 'night, Mother by Marsha Norman. The Pulitzer Prize-winning play opens April 15th and plays through May 1th before moving to Windsor.

Reservations can be made at

Amidst straightening up her mother’s kitchen, Jessie announces that she will be killing herself before morning comes. At first her mother refuses to take her seriously, but as Jessie lays out the reasons for ending her life and begins putting the place in order, her mother must come to grips with the grim reality she cannot escape.

Lisa Melinn plays Jessie in her Breathe Art debut, and as Mama, Diane Hill returns to the company stage for the first time since her award-winning turn as Vivian Bearing in Wit. Company member Kevin Young directs. The production team consists of Young, Jaye Stellini and company member Sergio Forest.

So many good things to little time. Maybe we could expand the "weekend" so I can pack more things in! :)
