Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

This week has been pretty extraordinary for me.

I had a whirlwind trip up to Traverse City to be on set with GMC Trade Secrets and got to meet Carter Oosterhouse, Eric Stromer and Sam Talbot. More on that in an upcoming post (with some photos and video, of course).

OK, just one picture for now.

Then I accepted an awesome job and will be starting next week.

Finally, I head back up north on Friday for the Traverse City Wine & Arts Festival.

Sadly, I’ll be missing all the amazing events going on in Detroit this weekend. Enjoy them for me, will ya?

One of our favorite events of the year? Forgotten Harvest's Champagne Cruise-a great way to see the cars while supporting a good cause! I did a preview of the event... ...hope to see some folks we know there.
