The Metro Times Blowout is celebrating its sweet 16 with a six-day party across three cities — and you’re invited.
The Visit Detroit Blog is part of The Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau (DMCVB).
Show us whatcha got! We know you’re celebrating the Detroit Tigers Opening Day at Comerica Park, and we want to see how. After all, great celebrations must be documented. Snap a picture that captures the essence of your Opening Day experience—maybe you’re dressed in Tiger apparel, or as a tiger or by the giant tiger. Attending the 97.1 The Ticket Detroit Tigers Opening Day Block Party in Grand Circus Park? Show us how it’s going. Or maybe you’re nowhere near Comerica Park but throw an awesome Tiger- or baseball-themed party.
Instagram is one of our favorite social media platforms, and based on the action we’ve been seeing on this hip, happening app that’s all the rage these days, it’s clear that you love it, too. So we went ahead and put together a photo collage of some of our favorite Depict The D Instagram entries, along with others from Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and email, as a way to say thank you for expressing your love for The D via lens. Keep ’em coming using #DepictTheD.
Did your entry make the cut?
Which one’s your favorite?

|Bowling Returns to The D|
Sports are a big deal in this city so when the NCAA 2013 Bowling Championship said they were intested in hosting their tournament in Detroit, the Sports Commission was ready to play host.
