Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

I want to call attention to the Super Duper Bonus—Free Art Friday for the DIA. It’s a scavenger hunt with art and if you find the art, you get to keep it! Clues are posted on Facebook and Twitter. This week’s edition lends support to the Detroit Institute of Arts in advance of the vote next week.

Go, find art!

1. Hot Glass Cold Beer - Enjoy live glass blowing demos while sipping on great beer from 5 Michigan breweries and noshing on tasty treats. August 2nd.

2. Mustache Day at the DIA - Is there a better way to celebrate Salvador Dali than by donning a mustache? We think not. Wear a mustache—real or fake—and recieve free admission to the Detroit Institute of Arts. August 3—5.

3. Fairy Tale Festival - We all need a fairy tale once in awhile. Head to the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House for a day of magic and imagination with music, theatre, story telling and activities. August 4th.

4. Buy Michigan Now Festival - Buy local! Downtown Northville is host to sidewalk sales, street vendors, children's activities and more all celebrating Michigan-based businesses. August 3—5.

5. Historic Baseball - The Greenfield Village Lah-De-Dahs Baseball Club play by the rules of 1867 and sport neckties in this gentlemanly game. Play ball! August 4—5.

Bonus: Rockin' on the Riverfront

Don't forget the Backpack Music Festival! Some of Detroit's coolest DJs! Help kids get school supplies and listen to some great techno/electronic music.
