Welcome to your first official City 5 of 2018!

I hope that you all had a really great holiday season and that 2018 has started off well.

So far 2018 is going well for me, with the exception of this extreme cold weather. I don’t know about you, but I am chilled to by bones.

Stay warm out there you guys, it looks like we might get into the high 20s on Sunday. It’ll be a veritable heat wave.

Good Foot w/ DJ Jefferson

Start your weekend off right with some DJ Jefferson at MotorCity Wine.

You’ll hear everything from funk, disco, boogie, jazz, soul when you see DJ Jefferson Davidson.

Good Foot is a reoccurring weekend set so if you can’t make it this Friday just remember that it happens every week until October.

The best part of this set, is that it finishes up early so you can continue on your way to the next stop.

When: Friday, January 5 from 6:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m.
Where: Motor City Wine 1949 Michigan Ave, Detroit, Michigan 48216

Senate Theater Silent Feature “It”

Before you get excited thinking this is Stephen King’s “It” his isn’t the “It” you might be thinking it is.

The Senate will be showing the 1927 film “It” featuring Clara Bow this Saturday night. John Lauter will be providing organ accompaniment on the Senate’s Mighty Wurlitzer pipe organ.

Clara Bow was the quintessential 1920’s flapper and she is the inspiration for the term “it girl”.
