Memorial Weekend Barbecue & Music Festival

Sat., May 23, Sun., May 24 and Mon., May 25

It’s nothing new, really: Motor City Wine has been hosting parties over Memorial Day weekend for six years now, with music and DJs. The only thing is, they moved in 2013, and now have a huge patio, a grill, and chef John Breeland cookin’ up the goods all weekend long. Add to this the menu of good values they serve at this Detroit wine bar, and you’ve got the makings of a killer weekend.
