Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

I'm sad to be missing all the fun things to do in Detroit this weekend but I’m off to Grand Rapids for the Winter Beer Festival put on by the Michigan Brewer’s Guild. This much needed weekend away is one of my favorite winter events in Michigan. I highly recommend you try and grab some tickets for next year’s event, they sold out this year in record time.

Get out there and enjoy all the awesome things to do in Detroit!
