DXF Challenge Weekly Recap (August 6th - August 12th)

The DXF Challenge is our way to inspire Detroiters to spend the summer experiencing the food and drinks at some of the 622 bars, restaurants & cafes on our DXF’s checklists through Instagram! Every time a challenger visits a bar or restaurant, they tag @WeKnowDetroit with a picture of them enjoying something delicious, using the hashtag #DXFChallenge. And you can too!

Here’s our #DXFChallenge weekly recap, featuring some of the latest stops & best moments from this week’s top 10 #DXFChallengers!
