Announcing the 3rd Annual Detroit Couch Crash: DCC3, Wednesday to Sunday, May 18-22 2011
Posted March 9th, 2011 - 11:19 pm by from Detroit, United States (Permalink)
We really hope you'll come!

In 2009, CouchSurfers in Detroit and surrounding communities decided it was past time to invite CSers from all over to experience the amazing truth about Detroit behind the veil of outdated misconceptions and stereotypes. Those five magical days set the stage for what we believe is among the most amazing CS events ever put on. We hope you won't believe it until you see it and live it for yourself. Please take a moment to check out what we're offering...

Wed 18 – Party in Ann Arbor
Thu 19 – Party at Mike's lake cabin in Reading
Fri 20 – Activities, Kickoff and party
Sat 21 – Meetup, activities and party
Sun 22 – Closer and activities

Activities over the 5 days will be legendary! They *have* been legendary! Like...
* Urban Exploration – Detroit is the #1 city in the nation for UrbEx, exploring abandoned buildings
* Michigan Beer – Brewery tours, dive bar crawls
* Art – The Heidelberg Project, local galleries
* Bikes – Expansive bike tours of the east and west side
* History – Historic walking tours, architecture/rare buildings
* Nighttime – World's largest drive-in movie, bonfires, legit Detroit dance parties
* Urban agriculture – It's happening in a big way in the city
* Wackiness – Urban Golf, Coney Island Face-Off, Bar Golf, Dizzy Spelling Bee, Thrift Store Crawl, Bridge Jumping, Hash House Harrier r*n, and much much more!
* Off schedule – Let's just say we still can't believe the stuff that's gone down. Epic good times!
