This weekend the first ever Corktown STRUT will take place throughout the bars, restaurants and streets of Corktown. The event is being presented by Forward Arts Detroit, with help from Party Store Productions, Assemble SoundUrban Organic, TV Bar and Aphotic Segment. The festival will feature 2 full days of music, a week of great food, and one awesome kick off party.

Let's start with the food. Monday night kicked off Corktown STRUT's Culinary Week. Restaurants throughout Corktown will have featured menu items with special prices ranging from $10-$15.
