Things to Do this week->End

Posted by ppna on January 9, 2008

I was going through the possibilities of things to do for the rest of the week and I thought I’d share with you what I’ve found.

I want to point out another great Detroit Entertainment Blog Detroiter Motorcity Blog

Wednesday January 9th

Thursday January 10th

  • Tough Trivia Thursdays at Theos on Cross Street in partnership with WAAM Radio. Teams of up to 4 compete for pretty good prizes. It’s a mostly non-smoking crowd and a fun time for all ages over 21.
  • Bat Boy the Musical — This play runs through Sunday but tickets for the Thursday showing are $15.00 instead of $24 (I think). It’s the tale of the Weekly World News‘ Bat Boy.

Friday January 11th

  • Detroit Artist Market — New Exhibit january 11th – february 17th 2008 ALL MEDIA EXHIBITION
    This all-media exhibition is open to all Michigan and Ontario residents 18 and older. Artists may submit a maximum of two entries in any media created within the last two years. Works submitted must not have been previously shown at the Detroit Artists Market.

Saturday January 12th

  • Wolfs Eyes Art Show at the UFO Factory. 7-10pm admission is free and the show looks pretty interesting.
  • Kickoff Party for the Detroit Oscar Film Festival. 7pm until ‘Late’ There is a fashion show and food and drink. Admission is $10.00
  • Art Battle Check this out it seems fun, 30 artists have 3 hours to create a work of art that will be judged after. 6:30 – 11. Live Art, Music Food Beer and Wine. $10 plus $5 to drink
  • Detroit Derby Girls At the Masonic Temple Doors at 6 match at 7. This should be a good event, It’s the Pistoffs vs. The Pistolwhippers. There is an afterparty at the 2500club.

Sunday January 13th

  • Detroit Oscar Film Festival There isn’t any detailed information I could find on this event except it starts at 3pm and tickets are $15.00. Their poster shows ‘Seabiscuit,’ ‘Young at Heart,’ ‘Jesus Camp,’ and ‘LA Confidential.’ I read that they will also be showing local indie works as well. Here is how they describe the event. “With this new film festival, the Music Hall and Prince Igor Productions present a series of films made by Michiganders. We have invited them back to Detroit to show their movies and host a Q & A after.”
