Detroit’s 314th Birthday

Happy Birthday, Detroit! Three hundred and fourteen years ago, French explorer named Antoine Laumet de la Mothe, sieur de Cadillac (Antoine Cadillac for short) first discovered our little city on the river. Back then they called us Fort Pontchartrain du Detroit, and we had a population of 51 Frenchmen and French-Canadians. More than three centuries […]

Three Movement After Parties For The Casual Fan

Three Movement After Parties For The Casual Fan

We confess to knowing very little about electronic music, but we can rock a glow stick and some fuzzy boots when the occasion calls for it. Movement, Detroit’s electronic music festival, is definitely one of those occasions. Movement returns to Hart Plaza this Friday, May 23 and continues through May 25. If you’re a serious […]

Haute to Death

Haute to Death

  To call Haute to Death (H2D) a just monthly dance party would be a great injustice, though it does happen once a month at Temple Bar. On the third Saturday of each month, this normally casual dive becomes Detroit’s hottest, craziest, most awesome night of fun. Show up, pay your two bucks ($3 after […]

World Space Party

World Space Party

You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know the formula for a good party. Our linear algebra is a little rusty, but we’re pretty sure if m=music, then 2m(drinks1 + theme2)  x  rockets  =  a good time. Don’t worry, we’ll explain. The World Space Party definitely fits in that equation. Hosted by Art […]

  Some days, we feel sorry for other cities. Apparently, in most parts of the country, the baseball home opener is not a good enough reason to take the day off work and bar hop all afternoon. The entire tri-county population doesn’t huddle together downtown and root root root for the home team. Around here, […]
