Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

For the record, fall—or autumn to you super-formal types—is my favorite season. Yes, it has a little to do with the fact that my birthday and anniversary fall in fall. Mostly though, I love fall because you get to wear sweatshirts and jeans and marvel at the beautiful changing colors. Cider and donuts (or is it doughnuts?) don’t hurt either.

But…I had to scrape ICE off of my windshield yesterday morning. September 19th is technically still summer, Mother Nature! That was uncalled for and I won’t have any more of it. Get with the program and let us enjoy this beautiful season.

Now, get out there and enjoy all the wonderful things to do in Detroit!

Weekend Roundup

1. Eastern Market After Dark (Facebook link) - The market isn't just for fruit and veg anymore! Take a self-guided tour of the creative side of Eastern Market including Red Bull House of Art, Signal Return, Salt & Cedar and OmniCorp Detroit. September 20th.

2. Detroit Design Festival 2012 - 60 events, over 70 venues and 300 designers featured in 5 days! The DDF brings the community together to execute ideas using retail, technology and design to improve quality of life in and around Detroit. Full list of events. September 19—23.

3. Park(ing) Day (Facebook link) - Head to the Cass Corridor and transform metered parking spaces into public places. The idea behind this global event is to create more places for humans instead of cars. September 21st.

4. Hopscotch Detroit - From Campus Martius to the Wayne State University campus, 4 miles of Detroit will be turned into a (hopefully) world record setting longest hopscotch. Hop on over and create your own chalk art! September 22nd.

5. Joe Louis Arena Open Skate - Have you ever dreamed of skating on the same ice as the Detroit Red Wings? Now is your chance! (Tickets are limited and the only slot left is 9am-10am.) September 22nd.

Bonus: Detropia (Now playing at the Ren Cen 4, Main Art in Royal Oak & the Michigan Theatre in Ann Arbor.)

Super Bonus: The Detroit Party Marching Band Bus Crash
