This week seems like it just flew by for me. What about you?

There are a ton of great things happening throughout Detroit. We will be out and about ourselves at some of these events.

Don’t forget to Spring Forward this weekend.

Empty Bowls Detroit

Want to get some good food and help support a great cause?

Then you need to get over to Shed 5 in Eastern Market on Friday night for Empty Bowls Detroit.

We have a post up about the event, so I’m going to send you there for all the details.

Some of the Daily Detroit team will be there serving up some soup, so come out and say hi.

When: Friday, March 9 from 5:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m.

National Day of Unplugging at Third Man Records

Let’s face it, we are all petty attached to our electronics. But what if I told you that Saturday is the National Day of Unplugging.

If you want to participate and go off the grid for the day, you’re going to need to do something to fill that time.

Luckily, Third Man Records has something planned for all of us wannabe Luddites.

There will be live performances by; Deekah Rox, Drinkard Sisters
Franz Lidz, Danny Kroha, Efe Bes, Rhonda Welsh, Inside Out, Mic Phelps, and Ethan Daniel Davidson.

There will also be family friendly activities throughout the day.

Think toddler sing-a-longs, guided meditation sessions, pressing plant window tours, a vintage “Record Your Voice” booth, and a Polaroid Photo Booth.

This is all free to attend.

When: Satruday, March 10 from 1:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m.

Where: Third Man Records, 441 W Canfield St, Detroit, MI 48201

Card Screen Printing Class At POST

I have always been fascinated by screen printing so when I saw this class I knew I wanted to share it with you all.

It is $45 to attend the workshop. You can sign up for the class here.
