5 Things To Do This Weekend

5 Things To Do This Weekend

Relax and enjoy the looong Labor Day weekend in Detroit!

The Jazz Festival is a 40 year Labor Day tradition in Detroit. Grab a lawn chair and get ready to jam downtown all weekend.

It’s a festival weekend around town. Don’t miss the Michigan State Fair is in Novi, Arts Beats & Eats in Royal Oak and the Hamtramck Labor Day Festival.

Football season is here! The Lion’s final pre-season game is Thursday at Ford Field, the Spartans take on Utah at home Friday and Michigan is under the lights at Notre Dame Saturday. Order a beer and watch the big games at a one of Detroit’s sports bars.

TIME Magazine named Foundation Hotel one of the World’s Greatest Places and we couldn’t agree more! Make reservations for a luxurious staycation or stop in for a meal at The Apparatus Room.

New seasons bring change. Spend some time at a local coffee shop (here are our 10 favorite), start making business moves (need to expand your network, check out these co-working spaces) and mark your calendar for fun events in September.
