Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

I’ve heard a strange rumor that we’re going to have 70-degree temperatures and possibly sunshine in Detroit this weekend. Could it be true? Sounds like a perfect weekend to get out there and enjoy Detroit.

And if you didn’t hear, I’m giving away a Detroit Moxie t-shirt! Check it out and be sure to follow the rules.

Of course! Hoping to stop by but it's going to be a game time decision.
