Admit it, you’ve probably complained before there’s “nothing” to do and nowhere to eat in Detroit. I know I have. In reality, however, there are 622 bars, restaurants and cafes in the city, and they’re all on the Detroit Experience Factory’s Third Annual Bar & Restaurant Challenge.
The DXF Challenge is pretty straightforward — whoever visits the most places before Sept. 30 wins an “Ultimate Detroit Experience Package” valued at more than $1,000. There will also be random winners selected all summer long, so just one night out can make you a winner. When you go to a place on the list, just post a photo of yourself at the bar or restaurant on Instagram with the hashtag #DXFchallenge.
Last year’s winner visited 200 places across the city. If you need a little inspiration or help learning more about what’s going on in Detroit, DXF has an amazing number of summer tours planned that include both strolling suppers and bar tours.
The Detroit Experience Factory is an affiliate of the Downtown Detroit Partnership, a nonprofit that uses experiences and innovative resources to help both newcomers and longtime locals get more connected to the city. Since 2006, more than 75,000 people have taken a DXF tour. For more details and registration, visit www.detroitexperiencefactory.org.
