Congrats, Claire!

A dear friend of mine, Claire Nelson, was honored by the Detroit Young Professionals at their 2nd Annual Vanguard Awards last week. The awards were presented at the Amnesia Nightclub (2901 Grand River) downtown.

I'm not sure, but I think this award for was being one of the most genuinely awesome people on the planet.

Or it could have been for co-founding Open City Detroit, which has helped several Detroiters open new retail businesses in Detroit.

Or it could have been for the business that she and her husband opened a few years ago.

Anyway, photos from the event are available here courtesy of After 5 Detroit.

Neither Claire nor her husband, Francis Grunow, live in the Warrendale neighborhood, which might make it odd then that I talk about this in the Warrendale Blog.

Part of my reason for mentioning this here is that I'm simply proud of my friend.

Of course, I have to admit that I do get a certain amount of joy in simply saying, "Claire, this video is for you."

And yes, that was an inside joke that started on Facebook, but has now spilled over into the blogosphere.
