DXF Challenge Weekly Recap (Week 10)

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!
