Do you work in the auto industry?  Do you have to go to all the parties and events with your bosses and never get to let your guard down?  Does a whole week of being careful what you say because the press is in town get on your nerves?  Then join us at the end of the week for the best Auto Show AfterParty.MSBE 2014 Underground Party Invite - Location Change

Advanced Automotive Consulting Services and Middlecott Design would like to invite you and a guest to our underground party!


On Friday, January 17th, we are bringing together Detroit’s awesome creative community, counter-culture artists and independent designers to celebrate the end of the formal, corporate, and uptight week of auto show activities with some awesome music and great atmosphere.
