The weekend is creeping up on us, but it will soon be here. Have you made your plans yet?
Let’s get started. BTW, don’t forget it is Father’s Day this Sunday, so you still have time to plan something nice for the dads in your life.
2017 Michigan Burlypicks
If you’re looking for a variety show that includes some of the best burlesque from around the world then you need to be at the Tangent Gallery/Hasting Streets Ballroom on Friday night.
Tickets for the show are $12 in advance ($15 for VIP) and $15 at the door.
Doors open at 8:00 p.m. and the show starts at 9:00 p.m.

Shop and Swap Benefiting Alternatives For Girls
Ladies, do you have a lot of clothes just hanging in your closet that never get worn anymore? If you’re anything like me, I’m guessing the answer is yes.
On Saturday the Garment Gallery will be hosting a Shop and Swap event to benefit Alternatives For Girls. There will be brunch snacks and mimosas to snack on while you “shop”.
Bring all of your gently used clothes that you no longer wear to the event and you will then be able to pick out new clothes.
There will also be vendors at the event selling some of their goodies.
They are asking for a donation of $5 that will be donating to Alternatives For Girls. If you can swing more, that would be great too.
Hours: 11:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
The Bridge inside of the Russell Industrial Center is located at 1600 Clay Street Suite 311 Detroit, Michigan 48211

The Rivertown location of Wheelhouse Detroit will be leading this 12 mile tour. The tour will take cyclists by the Globe Building, Dequindre Cut, Packard Plant, GM Detroit-Hamtramck (Poletown) Assembly Plant, and so many other places.
The tour will take three hours.

The tour starts at 10:00 a.m.
