Things to do in Detroit before/after DUCF 2010

The 5th annual Detroit Urban Craft Fair is this Saturday and Sunday at the Fillmore! This year, the fair has been expanded it to two days, Saturday 10-7 and Sunday 11-6.  They've also partnered with the Night Move for free shuttle service on both days.  For more info about the fair and shuttle service, go here.

Now of course, the Detroit Urban Craft Fair is reason enough to make a trip to the city on it's own, but just in case you need more reasons, here are some ways to spend your entire day in Detroit:

FOOD:  For an awesome lunch, go to Mudgie's Deli.  They use local ingredients whenever possible, and their food is super delicious.  They also have really good Michigan-made root beer. Mudgie's is open Saturday 11-9 and Sunday 11-4. Last year's lunch recommendation, still very good: Good Girls Go To Paris Crepes. For dinner, check out Motor City Brewing Works.  Fancy pizza and they brew their own beer, some of it with hops from Greenfield Village! I'm not sure what their hours are, but I think they're open pretty late. Last year's dinner recommendation was Slow's BBQ, also very good.

MUSEUMS/ATTRACTIONS: The Detroit Institute of Art has their Fakes, Forgeries and Mysteries exhibition going on right now. They also have Drawing in the Galleries for youth and adults together on Sunday, they provide all the supplies for this.  Ice skating at Campus Martius Park is open 10am-midnight on Saturday and 12pm-8pm on Sunday, and will only cost you $7.  And then there's the 38th Annual Noel Night from 5-9:30pm on Saturday. If you're looking for something a little out of the way, check out Hamtramck Disneyland. It's this wild creation in a backyard filled with carousel horses, little planes, and a giant Mikey Mouse head! The address is 12087 Klinger St and it's in the alley between Klinger and Sobieski.
