Play episode

Here are some fun events to check out this weekend in Oakland County.

It’s turning out to be pretty packed with all sorts of art fairs. It is market season, after all.

Have a great weekend everyone!

A Longman and Eagle Gastropub Takeover

Want a taste of Chicago, but without the four hour drive to the Windy City?

I’ve got the answer for you.

This Friday and Saturday the popular Chicago Gastropub Longman and Eagle are taking over the kitchen at Frame in Hazel Park.

The menu looks tasty, and will have four courses.

The dinner is $60 per person and you can also add on the cocktail pairing if you wish.

There are two seatings on both Friday, June 7 and Saturday, June 8 at 5:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. You can book your reservation here.

Frame is located at 23839 John R Road #2 Hazel Park, Michigan 48030

25th Annual Art of Fire

This weekend is the Art of Fire in downtown Royal Oak. So if you like things made out of clay, metal and glass this festival is for you.

Not only will there be art for sale, but there will also be live clay, glass, and metal

demonstrations throughout the two days.

You can find out more information here.

Saturday, June 8 from 10:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, June 9 from 11:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.

The festival will be located on Washington Boulevard between Lincoln and 5th  

Berkley Art Bash

Yep, I’m going to talk about more art.

This weekend is the ever popular Berkley Art Bash in downtown Berkley. The festival will have over 150 different artists setting up along 12 Mile.

I love a good art fair, and Berkley knows how to throw one.

While you’re there be sure to check out the City Style and Our Greentopia pop up at Twice Around Antiques.

Saturday, June 8 from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.

The Berkley Art Bash will be held on 12 Mile between Kipling and Buckingham streets

Motor City Bears Speedo Car Wash

Get those cars nice and dirty, because this Saturday is the 13th Annual Motor City Bears Speedo Car Wash in Ferndale. The car wash will be held in the parking lot of the Level One Bank on Woodward.

The Motor City Bears are raising money for the Ruth Ellis Center and Affirmations, and this is a great way to help both organizations out. Both do a lot of great work with the LGBTQ teens and young adults in the area.

Bring that cash and let it flow to help this great cause.

Saturday, June 8 from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.

Level One Bank is located at 22635 Woodward Avenue Ferndale, Michigan 48220

Touch of Clawson

This Sunday is the monthly Clawson Park Market.

So head out to the park and check out the different market vendors that will be setting up.  

If you plan on bringing the kids there will be things for them to do as well. There will be some large vehicles set up for exploring. There will also be some other hands on activities.  

Sunday, June 9 from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.

Clawson Park is located at 935 North Custer Avenue Clawson, Michigan 48017

P.S. This weekend is also the city wide garage sale in Clawson. So, if you’re already heading to Clawson, I suggest checking out some of those garage sales.
