Well, October was good while it lasted. Welcome to the month of November readers!

Don’t forget to set your clocks back an hour this weekend.


Looking for a bit of live theater? If so, head over to the Black Box Theater at the Planet Ant for their newest show Camptastic!

The show is about two best friends that go back in time to camp. They take a look at the roots of their friendship and everything that goes along with finding out who you are as a person.

Tickets for the show will run you $11 per person.

You can catch the show on Friday, November 3 and Saturday, November 4 at 8:00 p.m. If you can’t make it this weekend, there will be one more weekend to catch it.

Planet Ant is located at 2357 Caniff Hamtramck, Michigan 48212

Color Me Happy at the Scarab Club

I’m one of those adults that finds coloring relaxing. When I actually set time aside to actually do it that is.

This Saturday, November 4 there will be a little coloring session with Create U. at the Scarab Club.

Each person will get a custom coloring card, a box of colored pencils, food, and cocktails.

Leave the little kids at home, this event is for 18 and over.

Tickets for Color Me Happy are $16.82 per person.

Hours: 11:30 a.m.-2:00 p.m.

The Scarab Club is located at 217 Farnsworth Street Detroit, Michigan 48202

Streisand Double Feature at the Senate Theater

I see you eye rolling me, but I don’t care because it’s Babs.

I have loved Barbara Streisand since I was little so this makes me really happy.

If you also enjoy Streisand then the Senate Theater will be doing a double feature of The Way We Were and What’s Up Doc? 

I swear I was born in the wrong decade…because hello Robert Redford.

Anyway, tickets are $10 per person which is a steal since you’re seeing two great movies.

Show time is at 8:00 p.m.

The Senate Theater is located at 6424 Michigan Avenue Detroit, Michigan 48210

(P.S. Hey Senate Theater, do you think you could do a double feature with Funny Girl and Funny Lady next?)
