This October Yelp Detroit got VERY dignified as we celebrated a month long tribute to culture. Events varied from free nights at museums and coffee tastings, music performances and live theatre/dance. We had folks from all over the metro-Detroit area clamoring for their shot at these great complimentary and discounted opportunities!
Yes—we caught some vintage animation at the Redford Theatre’s Animation Rarities Festival, checked out the Streets of Old Detroit during the free nights at the Detroit Historical Museum, got discounted sips and treats during the first ever Detroit Wine Stroll, learned how paring coffee with food changes the flavor profiles at Zingerman’s Coffee Company, and rocked out with Hedwig and her Angry Inch at the Ringwald Theatre.
We toured the legendary Pewabic Pottery and made some of our own tile, channeled our inner psychic thanks to “Carmina Burana/The Medium" at the Detroit Opera House, took in some Beethoven and hobnobbed with the Conductor over wine and cheese at the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, got our hearts racing with the Eisenhower Dance Ensemble’s contemporary dance performances, celebrated Michigan film with a screening of “Answer This” featuring Funny or Die and Chris Parnell, and learned all about Middle Eastern culture and art at the Arab American National Museum.
Whew! What a month! It was a truly magical experience and we are so very grateful to all the wonderful organizations that partnered with us. Be sure to keep visiting them throughout the year to support Detroit arts!
Now, you’d think with all those adventures we’d be pooped. Well, we’re not tired! We’re going to keep the excitement alive at Yelp’s Greatest Show on Earth, a yelper party at the Detroit Yacht Club on November 18th. If you enjoyed the Culture Club you’re not going to want to miss this! Check out the details over yonder!
