This week is flying by, which could explain why we are bringing this post to you a day late. Trust us, the delay is worthwhile and we will be back on track for next week!
We say the week is flying by because we are looking forward to Cinco de Mayo this Saturday (May 5) … a celebration of 4,000 Mexican soldiers taking out 8,000 better-armed French troops in the Mexican state of Puebla way back in 1862. Frankly, this is another great reason to head to Southwest Detroit for a little food and a lot of fun.
Plus, if you are headed down to watch the Tigers dirty up the White Sox at Comerica Park and want to add to your fun in Downtown Detroit, we have you covered.
In corporate America, we hear the word collaboration and our mind immediately centers on the idea that a project will stall. If that picture is in your mind, this exhibit at The Wright Museum will turn that picture upside down thanks to the creativity you will experience from these collaborative Detroit artists.
There is no club in metropolitan Detroit quite like the Leland City Club. Heck, probably not in the United States. It’s celebrating its recent award from the Metro Times in a style that will benefit your wallet, as long as you arrive before midnight!
We are probably masochists for thinking cleaning up a park to get it ready for planting season is a fun activity to do before a baseball game. Prove we’re not by helping this community group out this weekend.
That is not a typo, that is the name of the event. While we are still scratching our heads about what an authentic Mexican Beer Garden is, any event with food trucks, beer and dancing in Downtown Detroit sounds fun to us!
As more people step into the entrepreneurial ranks in Detroit, this topic couldn’t be more timely. When you are trying to get your business off the ground, when do you become responsible to the community? How do you balance that against your responsibility to yourself, your family and your customers? Go this Tuesday and see how two Detroit-based business are tackling those questions.
From this week’s In Case You Missed It Files, the last thing we want you to do during Cinco de Mayo or any night for that matter is to get behind the wheel of your car after having a few too many. The Detroit Bus Company is making its debut Saturday with a route that should help you hit all the celebrations safely!
