Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

That’s it—summer is done and dusted. Yeah, I know. Its unofficial demise is next week and it doesn’t officially die for another month.

But. It’s pretty much over.

Luckily, we have sweatshirt weather, college football and cider mill runs to look forward to. Until then, there are still some fabulous things to do in Detroit.

Weekend Roundup

1. Summer Zoomance - Party with the animals at this adults-only event at the Detroit Zoo! Leave the kids at home and enjoy adult beverages. August 23rd.

2. Hamtramck Walking Tour - The Detroit Historical Society will take you on a tour of this once Polish community that is now Michigan's most internationally diverse city. August 25th.

7. Paxahau 14 Year Anniversary with Claude Von Stroke:
VENUE: New Center Park, Detroit
ARTISTS: Claude Von Stroke
DATE: Saturday August 25th, 2012
TICKETS: FREE
Web Site

Claude Von Stroke doesn’t take himself too seriously. While helping to hone a post-minimal bass heavy sound with his San Francisco based Dirty Bird label, he found a way to effortlessly inject the fun of 90′s hip hop and booty into the notoriously serious techno genre. Now that his sound has taken the world by storm, few people are aware he got his start in Detroit as a Drum & Bass DJ.
