The Red Carpet Treatment.

It’s been decades since Detroit has hosted a movie premiere, but as the saying goes, ‘timing is everything.’ The Fox Theatre hosted the DETROIT invite-only event, with several celebrities and city-goers in attendance. FIST4WRD will be the first to admit that Detroit definitely know hows to throw a party, and although we celebrated the city’s ‘Sweet 316‘ just yesterday, this one here certainly takes the cake! Looks like The Motown Sound isn’t the city’s only claim to fame. FIST4WRD to find out who showed up and showed out.

It’s Your Birthday Detroit!

316 years looks good on Detroit, founded on this day in 1701. And to commemorate this joyous occasion, several events have been planned throughout the city. FIST4WRD is officially redefining Detroit’s birthday as a day of indulgence. So go ahead and have that slice of cake and a scoop or two of ice cream to celebrate our city! Whether or not you share Detroit’s born day, FIST4WRD and find out how to partake in today’s festivities.

It Happened In Detroit.

Michigan Historic Site Marker designated in Gordon Park at the corner of Rosa Parks (12th Street) & Clairmount.

In July 1967, Detroit was known across the nation as not only ‘The Motor City’, but ‘The Model City‘. And while the 50th anniversary of such a tumultuous time in Detroit is nothing to celebrate, the progress we’ve made thus far certainly is. Detroit’s reputation has inarguably evolved over the years, but has been realigned as a world class tourist destination – reminiscent of the urban metropolis it once was. FIST4WRD has officially redefined Detroit as, ‘The City of Second Chances’. We hope for better things – It will rise from the ashes.
