Since then, a wide range of artists have played here, including the Foo Fighters, Less Than Jake, Aphex Twin, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, the Brian Setzer Orchestra, Squirrel Nut Zippers, the Deftones and Spiritualized."

Designed by leading Detroit architect George D. Mason in 1927, the 450-seat Gem Theatre boasts a lavish, intricately painted ceiling, ornate proscenium panels, rich carpet, and 1920s lighting. The theatre was built by the Twentieth Century Club, a group of cultural and civic-minded women of social prominence, to adjoin the Century Club building, a Mission-style meeting facility constructed in 1903. Prior to the Depression, the “Little Theatre” served as Detroit’s first foreign film house, and survived several name changes before closing as an adult movie house, the “Gem,” in 1978. Detroit developer Charles Forbes purchased the building in the 1980s, and by 1991, had returned the Gem Theatre to its Spanish Revival-style brilliance. In 1997, the Gem Theatre was faced with extinction in view of the City of Detroit’s plan to construct new stadiums for the Detroit Tigers and Detroit Lions. Upon reaching an agreement with the city, the Forbes family began preparations to relocate the Gem/Century building and preserve this historic structure for a second time. On November 10, 1997, the Gem Theatre and Century Club facility finished its five-block journey, breaking the Guinness Book world record as the heaviest building ever moved on wheels. The Century Club, restored in 1999, now houses a 200-seat cabaret-style theatre, as well as a fine-dining restaurant and banquet facility. Don’t miss the world-class musical and comedic productions in this intimate, elegant venue.

Have you ever wanted to be able to roll sushi like the masters at your favorite Japanese restaurant? Well now you can! Wyandotte’s aptly named Sushi Bar is holding a sushi-making and sake-tasting class this Tuesday. You will learn how to make several different types of sushi, how to make rice the right way and other tricks of the trade all while sipping on a sake, wine or beer pairing for each roll. Reservations are required.
Attention! Calling all black sheep, bad seeds, outcasts and rejects! Next Tuesday, Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds will be rockin’ the grand interior of the Masonic Temple. No strangers to the constant ebb and flow of life, this alternative group has seen a multitude of members come and go and has experimented with every form of rock imaginable: punk, grunge, garage, gothic, no wave. You name it; chances are they’ve played it. We love Cave’s slow, haunting drawl in “Wide Lovely Eyes” and his metric story telling in “Red Right Hand”. Each song showcases different styles, sounds and instrumentals, leaving the listener constantly guessing what’s to come. Forest Gump could have alluded to Cave and the Bad Seeds because, like a box of chocolates, with this band, you never know what you’re gonna get.
It has been 50 years since San Francisco ad man Louis Honig bought his 68-acre ranch in California’s Napa Valley, planting it with grapes to sell to neighboring wineries. It has been 30 years since his grandson Michael Honig took over the vineyard and winery. And 25 years ago, the family began producing small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon. Today, the sustainable, successful family winery now produces wines that appear on lists throughout the country. Those bottles will shine when paired with a menu from chef Alex Wannemacher’s 5-course dinner at Ann Arbor’s Chop House. Expect such choices as fennel-scented diver sea scallops, cardamom-crusted rack of lamb, porcini-dusted prime New York strip and more. It’s pricey, yeah, but what do you expect for a five-course meal with wines from a vineyard whose owner is right there with you?
