Winter Blast Adds Events

The 2007 Detroit Winter Blast, scheduled for Feb. 9-11 has added two new events this year. Retailers in the Renaissance Center, Penobscot Building and the Guardian Building will open their doors during the weekend. They will be offering discounts and promotions as part of the “Shop Detroit” event. Over sixty stores and restaurants will be offering discounts of 15 to 30 percent. Some of them include Traffic Jam, Century Grille, Mexican Village and Seldom Blues.

In addition, organizers said that downtown parking lots agreed to offer parking for $5 during the entire weekend. Winter Blast will be held in the eleven blocks from Campus Martius Park to Greektown. Get the kids dressed warm and head on downtown. You don’t need a Super Bowl to have an excuse to enjoy all the fun.

    The people pover added a weekend pass to ride from Thursday to Sunday for $3. If you pick one up on Sunday it costs $1. Not bad if you’re hitting the boat show, hockey and doing the crawl plus the other stuff. The website said they’re selling them at the cadillac station.
