Warrior Weekend – Music Edition

Hey all! I will admit, there aren’t too many big events around town this weekend but that doesn’t meant that there isn’t plenty to do! One of the things I love about living in the city is the accessibility to amazing (mostly free) live music. This week I featured some of the hot spots to find a good time, any time! Not only are these places go-to’s for this weekend, but they normally have great performers during any weekend.

There will be a group of various organizations presenting on how/what good their doing in Detroit. At the end, you vote for which you like best. The organization who gets the most votes leaves with the evenings donations! How neat, right!? See you there! :-)

Home Movie Day

Saturday, October 18th 12-4pm –> Museum of Contemporary Art, 4454 Woodward, Detroit, 48201

We’re all guilty of laughing so hard that we cry when we watch America’s Home Funniest Videos. So why not reenact the show and be apart of the audience? MOCAD is hosting a Home Movie Day by having locals submit their favorite home videos. They don’t have to be funny.. although you know you’re hoping you see some embarrassing stuff. So come down and enjoy this FREE afternoon of unique home videos, eat some popcorn, and meet some other fun people!

Detroit SOUP

Sunday, October 19th 6-8pm –> 2900 E Grand Blvd, Detroit, 48202

If you have never attended a Citywide Detroit SOUP, or don’t know what it is, then THIS is your chance!!! Detroit SOUP is an awesome non-profit that has a simple, yet impactful strategy. Come. Bring $5. Eat soup, salad, bread. Meet cool people. Help a local organization reach there goals. It’s that simple! When you attend on Sunday, you’ll hear from a individual organizations that are trying to make a difference in the city. After each organization presents, you vote. Whoever receives the most votes will walk away with the funds raised from the night! Tons of local businesses and non-profits have blossomed through SOUP, and each month there are more and more attendees, allowing more funds for the competing orgs! In addition to being a philanthropic attendee, I promise you’ll meet some interesting people since all of the seating is communal! SOUP is a monthly event, so don’t miss out (it gets packed, so arrive early!)!
