[EID EVENTS] Thanksgivukkah Eve and beyond


Thanksgiving Eve Kuhnhenn-style, Warren, November 27
Ring in the holiday with the K-team and plenty of beer, mead, and meat from Detroit BBQ Co.

Thanksgiving Eve at Atwater Brewery, Downtown, November 27
Don't you love it when places are all, "Oh hey, update to this event that we never actually announced prior to this update!" Oh, Atwater. So anyway their "update" (and first-ever announcement) was that their Thanksgiving Eve party will be at the original brewery on Joseph Campau on the Riverfront from 7 p.m. to midnight tonight, and there will be food and such.

Tanksgiving at St. Cece's, Corktown, November 27
Typo? Perhaps. Or perhaps the most accurate description of National Amateur Night possible. St. Cece's is having a songwriter hootenanny tonight and will have the fireplace roaring. Sounds perfectly civilized.

Thanksgiving at the Whitney, DetroitNovember 28
The Whitney is starting the day with Thanksgiving brunch and VIP parade seating ($59 adults, $39 kids), followed by Thanksgiving dinner from noon to 6 p.m. ($49 adults, $29 kids).

America's Thanksgiving Day Parade, DetroitNovember 28
Now with an expanded route and nine brand-new floats!

The Turkey Trot, the ice rink at Campus Martius opening, handegg, and more.


Winter Fest Wine Show, Windsor, November 30
Sample wines from the wineries of Windsor-Essex in an igloo. The show is 1-7 p.m. and entrance is free (wine samples are not).

Champagne and Potato Chip Tasting at the Whitney, Midtown, December 1
What? It totally works. Try it, you'll see.


The Empowerment Plans First Annual Fundraiser at the Madison Building, DowntownDecember 5
Food from Slows, drinks, and an auction of jackets designed by Detroit artists, followed by everyone at this event heading straight to the Sugar House afterwards (one assumes, and probably correctly).

Repeal Day 2013 at the Sugar House, Corktown, December 5
Celebrate the 80th anniversary of Repeal Day at the Sugar House with live music, door prizes, and dranks.

The Speakeasy Project Party at Tommy's Detroit Bar, DetroitDecember 5
Also coincident with the 80th anniversary of Repeal Day, Preservation Detroit is unveiling the results of their research and archeological dig on the historic building at 624 Third Street - now Tommy's Bar - built in the mid-1800s and serving as a number of different businesses over the years, including a speakeasy.

Breakout the Hooch with Detroit Pleasure Society at Cliff Bell's, Downtown, December 5
Another Repeal Day party. Period cocktails, swing music, and dinner specials. Period attire encouraged.

Drinks of Walkerville, Walkerville (Windsor), December 7
Walking in a winter Walkerville. This is a booze tour of historic Walkerville, which includes a visit to the Canadian Club "Heritage Centre." (Spelled "-re,"  because Canadians!)

Noel Night, Midtown, December 7
There are just so many things. 

Detroit Detour, Downtown, December 7
A booze bus thing. This bus is a little less Motor City Brew Tours and a little more drunk co-eds on a party bus, methinks. (I mean, Neptix. C'mon.) Advance tickets are sold out but you can get same day tickets for $40. 

Oyster Club at Forest Grill, Birmingham, December 8

Motown Macdown at the Royal Oak Music Theatre, Royal Oak, December 12
It's a benefit for Justin's Vision.
