I hope everyone is enjoying their 4th of July activities. Since most people will have some sort of party going on today, it is relevant to talk about the hottest party that I went to this past Friday.
Before I tell you more details about this party, I have to introduce you to Hour Detroit. It is a monthly city magazine covering the Metro Detroit area. It features content on restaurants, arts, and entertainment. Also, trends in fashion and decor. Publication began in 1996. Since then, it has become one of the most well-known and respected local magazines in Metro Detroit. Every year it has online voting for the Best of Detroit. Which is, readers’ picks for winners in food, drink, leisure, people, and services.
For the past 13 years, as a celebration for all the winners, Hour Detroit has hosted the hottest party of the summer: Best of Detroit. It has become one of the most anticipated events of the summer.
Last Friday, June 29, the Best of Detroit 2018 party took place at Eastern Market’s Shed 3. The celebration’s host was Evrod Cassimy, from WDIV Local 4. This was my first year attending a Best of Detroit party and, I have to say, I am very impressed by it. It was a cocktail affair, where people dressed to impress. Everyone enjoyed the flavors, sounds, and fashions of Hour Detroit’s Best of Detroit winners. Also, cannot forget the special performances from Your Generation, Nuclassica, and DJ CAPTN20.
The party had food from over 20 of the winning restaurants from the June edition of Hour Detroit. Along with signature cocktails, wine, and beer.
I love flowers, so I had to take a photo with those fresh ones!
The photo booth was a hit among everyone!
It was 90+ degrees that day, but partygoers were still having fun. When I was taking photos near the band, I was getting drawn to the dance floor by a group of happy women dancing. LOL, and I had so much fun dancing like no one was watching!
100% of proceeds of this party benefits local charities participating in the Give Detroit Challenge. I love having fun while making a positive difference.
I am not a party animal, so I left at about 8:30 PM. The party lasted until 11 PM. When I walked out, there were still many people walking in. 😉
You can read this for all the winners of the year. I have suggested to them that they add Best Blogger, or Best Influencer, for next year. LOL, we will see!
By the way, you can read this article: A Morning with Fashion Blogger Grace Liang, which Hour Detroit featured me in last year.
