Find out what all the hype's about

Hardly a day goes by that I don't hear about something new happening in Detroit.

Whether it's a new housing development, a cool art show or a fresh DJ that's emerged on the scene, Detroit is where it's at - and if you haven't spent any time downtown lately, you're missing out.

The good news is, you're not too late to get in on the action.

And, tonight may be just the right time for you to test out the waters of the D to see what all the hype is about.

That's because tonight is the fifth installment of the ever-popular
Illuminate, a four-hour evening event designed to show you some of the perks associated with having a Detroit residence, as well as to introduce you to some of the city's best local businesses.

Housing and merchants aren't the only things you'll discover at Illuminate, though; the Friday-evening shindig will also feature works from area artists; food and drinks courtesy of local restaurants; and, music by some of Detroit's most well-known DJs.

Illuminate, which is sponsored by a host of organizations, including
Metrotimes, Detroit Synergy, Atlas Global Bistro and Detroit Urban Living, runs from 6 - 10 pm.

It will be held at
The Carlton Loft-Condominiums, a recent Brush Park-redevelopment with 51 units ranging from 700-1800 square feet.

So, if your schedule is open tonight, and you're up for trying something new, give Illuminate5 a try.

Just make sure to register - 700 people came to the last event, and this one is likely to top that.

A $5 donation, which will go to the non-profit group,
Friends of the Book-Cadillac Hotel, will get you into Illuminate5.
