Stories you missed this week | What to do this weekend

A look at stories you may have missed this week -- and a look at what's happening around town.

Happy Saturday! The weekend edition of this newsletter will be a bit different from the normal Monday through Friday version. On Saturdays, I'll take a look some of my top picks from the last week, and highlight some of the events going on around Metro Detroit. Enjoy!

Stories you missed this week

Events around town this weekend

  • Evil Dead: The Musical Detroit: If you're a fan of the cult horror classic "Evil Dead," you have to check out the musical in Downtown Detroit. It's a fun (and fake bloody) time.
  • Capitol Park Block Party: The local businesses and institutions surrounding Capitol Park are teaming up to support the Downtown Detroit Partnership's Patronicity campaign to build a new off-leash dog park in Capitol Park!
  • The O'Jays & The Isley Brothers: These two iconic acts will take the stage at the Fox Theatre on Sunday night. It's going to be funky. (Here's my favorite O'Jays song)
  • Ballet Folklorico de Detroit: Celebrate the Day of the Dead with special performances by Ballet Folklórico de Detroit, a Mexican folkloric dance group based in Southwest Detroit that aims to preserve the culture of Mexico and promote positive growth within the community. This group of dancers will showcase several traditional dances and costumes from various regions of Mexico. 
  • Detroit Lions vs. New York Giants: The Lions take the field again at Ford Field on Sunday, looking for their third win of the season after three straight losses.

Hey, if you like this newsletter, let us know. We'd love your feedback. We also offer several other newsletters that probably cater to at least one of your interests -- unless you're only interested in USB chargers. We don't have one for USB chargers. Sorry.
