Indian Village Home and Garden Tour & Six Tabs for Riverfront

A friend in Indian Village invited me to the Home and Garden Tour in her neighborhood via Facebook.  Curious about one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city, I Goodsearched (vs. Googled) the event.  The website is just as lovely as the neighborhood.  I have never ran across men’s and women’s clubs in neighborhoods until late.  I don’t think the Riverfront Towers – where I live – has such a thing.

The Men’s and Women’s Garden Clubs in Indian Village look like they are contributing to their neighborhood and city through discussions, volunteering, and scholarships.   I love especially the people who have contributed their names and history with the neighborhood as “Realty Resources.” 

I don’t know that I could trade my life sans lawnmower for a home, but I do love attending parties at the beautiful old homes.    

If I were to break the Riverfront Towers into the 6 most important tabs they would probably include:

–          Delicious pizza from the Signature Grille

–          Deliciously impossible soups from the Signature Market

–          Amazing Riverfront Festivities (Red Bull Air Races, Boat Races, Fireworks, Marina Boat decorating party)

–          Thursday night Karaoke (beware, there is some serious talent – clearly I am not singing) at the signature bar and grille

–          The cutest puppy watching

–          The covered access to the People Mover

Not very concise, but it is hard to be short with the things you love.

Detroit Wig Out

Live music is such an amazing part of Detroit life.  Most of the acts that I go to see are at the Magic Stick.  The Detroit Wig Out is on June 12th and the Hootenanny version is on the 13th.  Here is an opportunity, yet again, to experience some good music as well as the added bonus of living out a lifelong dream: being a red head.  I have always had an overwhelming desire to be a red head, which I attribute to my childhood admiration of the Little Mermaid and Anne of Green Gables.  I once dyed the tips of my hair, but never had the nerve to go all the way and have to explain why an Indian girl decided red was her colour.  I am trying to decide if I want to go Saturday night or borrow my niece and go for the Wig Out Hootenanny on Sunday.  Either way, I need to locate a red wig.  I have always wondered about the wig shop on Woodward, downtown, I may start there.
