Weekend to Remember

Well, I have to tell ya’, this was a most exciting weekend to be in the D’! Although I was involved with a sailing regatta on Lake St. Claire on Saturday we returned home that night around nine-ish to find the city packed to the rafters attending all the events downtown. From the fireworks at Comerica to the crowds at the River Days events, it was something to behold. Unfortunately the decision to take Jefferson home instead of the freeway made the trip lengthy. “Jazz on Jefferson” had a section of Jeff’ blocked off. We detoured over to Conner and upon re-entering it was bumper to bumper all the way to the Ren Cen. As a COD, we knew how to go around to make it back to Grand Circus ok.

I was pretty exhausted by that time but upon looking out my widows from home, I just had to say how proud I was to be in the middle of all this. The city never looked so vibrant. Who says Detroit isn’t a great city? We are coming along just fine and the amount of people here this weekend proves it.

Not to miss anything I went to the River Cafe to have dinner on Sunday afternoon. They have a really cool patio just outside and you can view the River Walk from there. My oh my, it looked like the Exodus. For as far as you could see there were people enjoying the evening activities. You want free concerts? You got em’. Got front row seats at the EDS stage and watched the last hour of Mark Chesnutt’s band and, at around 8:30 was right up front to see Joan Jet, (“I love rock and roll. . .put another coin in the juke box baby!”) It was CRAZY and so much damn fun. One of those times where you don’t care what’s happeing anywhere else. You’re in the moment! Cameras all over the place and me holding up my cell for some friends on the other end to hear.

It is shaping up to be quite a week in the D’, Celebrations on the river till’ Wed evening for the Target Fire Works and the Tigers are in town every day beginning tonight against Texas. Get your asses down here. It will be more fun than a human being should be allowed to have.
