Get Your Party On in the Motor City!

Now that we know what teams will be playing for the National Football League's coveted trophy, the teams are the Seattle Sehawks-goin' to the SB for the very first time versus the Pittsburgh Steelers-they've been there and done that (Have you ever heard of a 4-1 record for the Super Bowl???)... the cash and those oh so fabulous rings, we've got to check out the parties in Detroit beginning next week.

    First there's the Salute to Detroit party. That's on Monday,January 30, 2006 at the Fox Theatre, in downtown Detroit from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm. It's a benefit show. The cheap seats in the nose bleed section are $125 - $1,500 per person for the really good seats.

    Proceeds from the program will benefit The Greater Detroit Charitable Foundation, the charitable arm of the Detroit Super Bowl XL Host Committee.

    ABC/ESPN broadcaster Mike Tirico, will be the master of ceremonies who will be in charge of a program filled with some the city's finest entertainers, a tribute to the Detroit automakers, 40 moments that define Detroit sports, appearances by sports legends who hail from Detroit and the current NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue. A local television station plans to add to the excitement with a “green carpet special” live from the Fox Theatre.

Wow! I wonder what's on the agenda for Tuesday night?? Ice skating or dog sledding anyone??
