Your City 5: Things To Do In Detroit For The Weekend Of May 26-28

Play episode

Hello Memorial Day weekend! Welcome to the unofficial start of summer. I was going to add Movement to this list, but I scrapped that plan after seeing how much a one day pass is now.

Charlie Virgo and Lushes Lamoan perform at New Dodge Lounge

Movement might be this weekend, but not everyone likes electronic music. If you fall into that category head over to the New Dodge Lounge in Hamtramck on Friday, May 26 to see Charlie Virgo and Lushes Lamoan.

Word on the street is that if you follow Lushes Lamoan’s Facebook Page there is a free ticket to see the show.

The show starts at 9:00 p.m. New Dodge Lounge is located at 8850 Joseph Campau Street Hamtramck, Michigan 48212

Free admission to Michigan Science Center 

The Michigan Science Center is free this weekend thanks to Toyota. This weekend also marks the opening of the new Toyota 4D Engineering Theater inside the science center.

If you plan on going to the Michigan Science Center be sure you sign up before hand. You can sign up for your expected arrival time to help with the traffic flow inside the science center.

The Michigan Science Center is located at 5020 John R Detroit, Michigan 48202

Diary Of A Lost Girl at The Senate Theater 

The Senate Theater will be showing Diary Of A Lost Girl on Saturday night.
