Rob Wants to Have Coffee with You, Troy!

June 15th, 2012

A few weeks back the brain trust here at WDET said to me (paraphrasing badly), “Rob, you like people. You like community. You like hanging out and enjoying a beverage. So, why not marry all those things together? We’ll send you out to coffee shops & bars to meet people and talk things that matter – from pressing local issues to the arts?”

My response was, “Where do I sign up?”

So, the tour begins in Troy on Monday, June 25th from 7am/10am at Caribou Coffee on Crooks and Big Beaver.

I bet you are thinking “what should I bring?” Just bring yourself and your ideas.

Then there’s “what should I do?” Why not tell your friends through facebook, twitter and other social channels.

And we have added another wrinkle – free stuff! Follow @WDET and @RobDET. Then, tweet an update or send a photo with the hashtag #rawfeed from your meet up with me and I’ll give you something cool – ON THE SPOT!

No need to RSVP, just stop on by. But this meet up is about more than just sharing a smile, a coffee and a few laughs (which we’ll do), it’s about continuing the passion we have at WDET for reaching into the community, talking about ideas that matter and helping all of Metro Detroit better understand you, me and everyone we know. That’s the idea of “Crossing the Lines” – WDET’s on-going community engagement & reporting effort.

If you can’t make the coffee talk, or just want to share something with us through your computer, click this link and tell us about "What Metro Detroit should know about Troy?"

If you’re not in Troy – don’t worry! I’m coming your way soon. In fact, let me know where I should go by leaving your suggestions below.

THANKS & I’ll see you on the road!
