Hey all you lovely readers! This weekend is a special one because I will be heading up north for a girls weekend to celebrate my birthday.

Part of me is sad that I’m going up north because there are so many cool things happening this weekend.

Halloween Movie Mayhem

This weekend is chocked full of classic horror movies being screened throughout Detroit.

I couldn’t pick just one movie to include in this week’s City 5, so I made a special post with 9 movies being screened. You can find all of the details over there.

Dog Halloween Costume Party

My dog is not a fan of being dressed up, but if yours are then you should check out this fun doggy costume party on Saturday afternoon.

LC’s Mobile Pet Spa will be offering spa services for your pups.

Cass Corridog will be providing the prizes for best dress, most creative, scariest, and funniest Halloween costumes.

The party will be held at the Grand Circus Dog Park.

When: Saturday, October 28 from 2:30 p.m.-4:00 p.m.

Where: Grand Circus Park

Family Friendly Lions Tailgate

This Sunday is a home game for the Detroit Lions, which mean it’s time to get your tailgate plans together.

If you have children the idea of bringing them over to the Eastern Market tailgate might not be too ideal. But there is now a family friendly tailgate at Beacon Park downtown.

Come bring the kids out to listen to music, games, and other families who like the Lions.

When: Sunday, October 29 from 5:50 p.m.-8:30 p.m.

Where: Beacon Park is located at 1903 Grand River Avenue, Detroit, Michigan 48226


Motor City Soul Club Soul Stomp

It’s that time again, it’s time to get down on the dance floor at the Marble Bar for the monthly Motor City Soul Club Soul Stomp.

As with every monthly Soul Stomp Dan Austin, Brad Hales and Erica Aytes will be slinging the vinyl. They will be joined by special guests Nick Speed and Adam Stanfel this month.

There’s no cover for this party.
