What a grab bag of Rad and awesome this week.
Detroit's Motown Winter Blast is going on starting today. Tonight I am going ice skating in Clark Park!
UConn 3rd string quarterback, Johnny McEntee releases trick shot video... then Cam Newton has to release his "workout" video. Come on Cam, we know you're jealous.
This weekend the Frontiers, the Journey Tribute Band, will be playing the Magic Bag in Ferndale. I went to see them last year and all people could talk about was how they thought the Magic Bag had a live recording of Journey playing while these guys were on stage because they replicated their sound so well. I will tell you this, go see them at least once! Even if you don't like Journey you will appreciate how close these guys come to sounding just like them. I hope the keyboard player is able to make it this time!
On Rollingstone.com you can listen to a lot of music for free. Just go to www.rollingstone.com/albums and you can hear new full albums and new singles for free while you read the reviews. I was blown away by how much free new stuff you can listen to!

In my quest to promote for free anything made in Detroit I have friended a lot of Detroit Metro area businesses on Facebook and try to follow them on Twitter.
I saw this the other day and thought it was a cool idea from Better Made Snack Foods. They are giving away a Super Bowl Party for 25 people with food from National Coney Island, Better Made Snack Foods, Detroit Popcorn Company and Ackroyd's Scottish Bakery.
All you have to do is email them with your information then post a picture of you with Better Made Snack Foods on Facebook or Twitter @bettermade. Go get some chips today and post those pics. If I win I will definitely invite you all over!

I was shopping last Friday at The Western Market on 9 mile in Ferndale and saw some trail mix made by the Germack Pistachio Company from Detroit.
