Hello friends! If you’re in town for the holiday week, or just getting back, know that the summer fun is in full swing this weekend. Let’s just dive in, shall we?

Friday – Detroit Fleat Grand Opening

It’s one of the most anticipated food and booze developments in the region, judging by the interest on our site and our Facebook page. Detroit Fleat is holding their grand opening at 5 p.m. on Friday night and it’ll marry booze and food trucks on 9 Mile. We’ll be sure to give you all the deets on this one with a preview on Friday during the day.

Location: 1820 East 9 Mile Road in Ferndale

Saturday – Kolsching Hour

So it’s actually two hours from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., but who’s counting? There’s beer involved. The Royal Oak Brewery has a little tradition where they will be serving their Kolsch beer in the traditional glasses and have food including the amazing German breakfast staple famous in Cincinnati, Goetta. I know it looks like Guetta, but it has nothing to do with DJ David Guetta. Turns out Goetta is a german breakfast sausage usually with pork, beef, whole grain steel-cut oats, fresh onions, and spices. No pop DJs were harmed in the creation of the meal. Facebook event here.

Location: 215 Eeast 4th Street, Royal Oak

Saturday – Ferndale Garage Sale (West)

Hello bargain hunters! It looks like the entire west side of Ferndale is going to have a bunch of garage sales. It runs from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. at various locations west of Woodward on Saturday. Multiple locations, and here’s the Facebook event.

Saturday – Comedy Sportz Detroit

They have regular shows on Saturday nights at 7:30 p.m. in Ferndale, and no two shows are the same as it’s improv-based comedy. It’s a good way to get a laugh in on a weekend night and it’s all ages.

ALSO – they’re starting up a multi-week improv class for kids on July 8. More info on that here.

Saturday show location: 1100 Woodward Heights in Ferndale

Sunday – Cranbrook House Guided Tour

Up in Bloomfield Hills off of Woodward is Cranbrook, and this Sunday at 11 a.m. they’re doing their guided tour of a most amazing house that was created by none other than Albert Kahn, one of the most influential architects of our area. It’s an arts and crafts beauty from 1908 that was designed for George Gough and Ellen Scripps Booth. In the house is handcrafted furniture, tapestries, tiles, stained and leaded glass, and more art than you could shake a stick at. Adult tickets are $15 and you can find out more here.

Location: 380 Lone Pine Road, Bloomfield Hills


ALL DAYS – All The Cherry Things At M-Brew

Do you like all things cherry? Being from Michigan, it’s a natural thing. Well, M-Brew has a thing going on throughout the week with all kinds of cherry creations, both with alcohol and eats. It’s not a specific day, but it seems like a good place to stop through for something different during your fun parade through town. They’ve been teasing frozen cherry custard, different beers and cherry pastries. They’re open ’til 1 a.m. Saturday and Sunday and 9 p.m. on Sunday.

Location: 177 Vester in Ferndale
