Memorial Day Weekend in Detroit: 89 Acts + 4 Stages = THREE Days of Techno and Tasty BBQ!

Memorial Day Weekend in Detroit: 89 Acts + 4 Stages = THREE Days of Techno and Tasty BBQ!

May 23, 2019 | Detroit

Growing up (about 600 miles north of Detroit), Memorial Day Weekend meant putting the boats in the water and barbequing. Living in Detroit, Memorial Day still means spending the weekend on the water and eating outside! I’ve been coming to Movement since it was a free festival, and over the years it has only gotten better! Especially since my Downtown…

May the Fourth Be With You: Celebrating Cinco de Mayo in Detroit!

May the Fourth Be With You: Celebrating Cinco de Mayo in Detroit!

April 30, 2019 | Detroit

I celebrated Cinco de Mayo long before I moved to Downtown Detroit—fine, I celebrated it before I was 21—but as I prepare for the festivities this weekend, I’m struck by the similarities between my luxury loft and Don Julio González. Yes. That Don Julio, the founder of Don Julio Tequila. Don Julio had a vision when he began distilling his…

Experience Life in Detroit as a VIP—and Check Out the VI Peel Event at Boyd Beauty!

April 28, 2019 | Detroit

I moved to Downtown Detroit before the city began its recent resurgence. But The Lofts of Merchants Row had a vision of my building restored to its original beauty, and they created—and keep up—the luxury lofts I live in. They understand the importance of appearances, and that value is more than surface deep. From the day I moved in, I…

Breakfast: A Very Berry Good Way to Start the Day in Detroit!

April 23, 2019 | Detroit

I know you've heard “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” And this is generally followed by some advice for how to simply consume calories in the morning to get your metabolism going. The Hudson Café holds true to the saying and the importance of breakfast, but they follow it up with anything-but-simple dishes that get your day…

Home Games (Literally): Sunday Funday + Football = WIN!!

Home Games (Literally): Sunday Funday + Football = WIN!!

April 17, 2019 | Detroit

One perk of living in a Downtown Detroit luxury loft is that you don’t have to plan ahead to have fun. On any given day, there’s a concert, a play, a new eatery, or (one of your many) favorite bar(s) offering extended Happy Hours. It’s ALL always ‘happening’ Downtown. And on any given Sunday, I also know where I’ll be.…

It’s a Sweet Time to Be in Detroit! The Brackets are Back: March Madness!

March 28, 2019 | Detroit

For the second year in a row, my Downtown Detroit Luxury Loft is holding March Madness Bracket Competition for me and my neighbors—which, along with a little friendly competition, is a great way to make new friends in the building! Alright. As far as I’m concerned, ‘friendly competition’ is an oxymoron. If it involves a score or a time, and…

There are more mouth-watering eateries in walking distance of my Downtown Detroit Loft than I can count, but this Thursday my Luxury Loft’s Leasing Office is treating me to a truly mouth-watering (and eye-watering) outing: our Annual Blazin’ Wings Challenge. Every month, my neighbors and I get invited to an event hosted by my Downtown Luxury Loft Leasing Office—it’s a…

Customizing Life in Detroit: An Event that Celebrates the City that Suits Everyone!

March 15, 2019 | Detroit

One of my favorite parts living in Downtown Detroit loft is that when friends come to visit, I get to ‘curate’ their experience of the city based on what I know they love. There’s so much going on and so many different places to go, while all of them are coming to ‘The 3-1-3’, it’s always a slightly ‘different’ city…
