Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

First off, the winner of the pair of tickets to BRU Fest is… Tammy Purol (@tam_tamm)! She loves some provolone on her burger. Have fun at BRU, Tammy! And, in case you’re wondering, bacon was the most mentioned burger topper. Gotta love bacon!

Second, my friend @nullfear made this fabulous site when the Detroit Moxie t-shirts first launched. I shared it on Twitter and Facebook but it just dawned on me that I’ve never shared it here. So, clicky click if you’re wondering how many Detroit Moxie t-shirts have been sold.

He’s pretty awesome. Did I mention that he’s 14? Yep!

Speaking of t-shirts, I have more coming in this afternoon! Specifically, I’ll be adding more pink and white t-shirts to the shop in a few hours. There are still brown & blue ones available.

I’ve been getting asked quite a bit lately who I use to print my t-shirts. I want to give a big shout-out to Triple Thread in Clawson! They’ve been awesome and if you’re looking for local screen printers, I highly recommend them.

Finally, get out there and enjoy your weekend! There are SO many fabulous things to do in Detroit.

Anyone able to donate to the Urgh! Kickstarter should go for it. There's only a few hours left of the kickstarter and if they don't raise enough $ they lose it all! every dollar counts! THANKS!

Love the Berkley Art Bash. I see Motor Honey is playing again there in the afternoon (saw them last year, great show)...and I invariably find a few presents for birthdays, etc. made by local artists/crafters. I'm thinking a couple of hours to shop, listen to music, and get one of those big shake-up lemonades sounds like a perfect Saturday afternoon to me :)

Yes! If you like the Urgh! project, definitely contribute to the kickstarter if you can.

Sounds like a great afternoon to me too! We're going to try and stop by early in the afternoon.
