Get To Know The People Mover
The Detroit Historical Museum is playing a flick on Saturday that documents the public art found at each People Mover station. The museum is free, but you might as well spend 75 cents and ride the people move in a circle when you're done.
Embrace The Vortex!
This is Michigan, after all. Plymouth will be showcasing 100 ice sculptures this weekend, with live ice carving competitions. Shops and restaurants will also be entertaining the masses.
Escape The Vortex!
It's positively balmy inside the conservatory on Belle Isle all year. Remember what it's like in a desert or jungle by hanging out in the exhibits in this fantastical greenhouse.
Eat An Alley Taco
A taco shop has been stealthily developing inside Marcus Market on Cass and Second. Descriptively named Alley Taco, the eatery had a soft opening recently. Eater Detroit has photos of the transformation.
Stop by Marcus Market or check their Facebook to see if they're open.
- It's not this weekend, but Mix @ The Max is a stellar event series put on by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. On Tuesday, they'll be featuring a concert that somehow mixes tango, accordion and the orchestra.
- A celebration of self-publishing is opening this weekend at the Detroit Work Gallery.
