 Bourbon & Bowties is back at the Dossin Great Lakes Museum on October 1, for a night of Bourbon tasting, history and fun.  

Within the span of 200 years, Detroit grew from a frontier outpost into a leading American industrial city. The international impact of Detroit’s major industries along the river can still be seen in the city today, from shipbuilding to stove making and distilling! Explore Detroit’s industrial past with us at Bourbon & Bowties.
