USA Today has an article out about 10 places to check out in Detroit, and the Riverfront and lil ol’ Wheelhouse got name-checked!
Stop by the Detroit Riverfront for some serious off-court action. “The 2009 NCAA Men’s Final Four weekend in Detroit wouldn’t be complete without ‘The Big Dance,’ ” Monforton says. “Three days of free musical concerts will take place, including performances by the Pussycat Dolls, Gavin DeGraw, Fergie, Staind, Gym Class Heroes, Jesse McCartney, N.E.R.D., Janelle Monáe, Keith Sweat and emcee Ryan Seacrest.” Best part? The celeb-filled fest is free. The Cullen Family Carousel and the Wheelhouse Detroit bike rentals also will be open.
Well, we can safely say we never dreamed of the day we would be mentioned in the same paragraph as the Pussycat Dolls.
Read the whole thing here.
We also got some local love from the Metro Times this week, with a mention of our tour in the Night & Day section as well as some individual recommendations in their Final Guide. We like this suggestion:
