Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

Ah, it’s that time of year again. Yep, I’m talking about the Hallmark holiday to end all Hallmark holidays—Valentine’s Day. We don’t generally celebrate this day but it’s hard not to pine for flowers from your significant other delivered to your office. Or a nice romantic meal at one of Detroit’s top restaurants. Perhaps a little bit of bling from the Apple store? Hint, hint.

Oh hell, who am I kidding?

Luckily—whether you're a singleton or coupled up—there are plenty of fun things to do this weekend in Detroit!
