  • Armando's

    Armando's stays open until 4 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays (until 2 a.m. the rest of the week), and the post-bar crowd that spills over from Dearborn and downtown Detroit's clubs can choose from the regular Mexican fare-or Mexican breakfast. They roll in at 2-3 a.m., and, depending on what's happening, there can be a line outside at 3 a.m. Owner Cecilia Benedict approves of the late night crowd, and says watching buzzed patrons, churlish lovers and new friends can make it worth working late.

  • Cafe Habana

    Café Habana offers excellent, reasonably priced Cuban cuisine in a fun, funky-chic setting, along with Latin music and a full bar, in downtown Royal Oak’s ever-expanding restaurant hub. The Caribbean nation’s food is simple, with Spanish and Central American influences, but substantial. Grilled meats dominate platos principales, enhanced by fresh and spicy marinades and sauces.

  • Frita Batidos

    Frita Batidos offers an array of cuban-inspired sandwiches and intriguing side-dishes.  Their quirky drinks include tropical milkshakes, coffee drinks and ginger-lime soda.  A street-vendor motif and communal, picnic-table seating add a bit of whimsy.

  • Vicente's Cuban Cuisine

    Familiar elements from the Caribbean are here — plantains, yuca, papas rellenas, thin beefsteak and lots of black beans and rice. Bistec de palomilla is steak pounded very thin, marinated in mojo sauce (orange and lemon juice, garlic, onion, sugar), then lightly breaded and well-fried. It’s served with fried onions on top and a side of plantains. Fried and breaded pork are on the menu too, as are lobster and shrimp, arroz con pollo, and several paellas.

  • Todrick Hall Presents Twerk Du Soleil

Watch him perform live this weekend when doors open at 6.

  • Dick Dale
    Dick Dale 7/23 8:00PM
     

    The king, himself, is coming to Detroit. Not the shaky legs, greased hair king; he’s left the building. We’re talking about the king of surf guitar, Dick Dale. Not familiar with surf rock? Then head over to the Magic Bag on this evening and let the innovator show you how it’s done. Dale pioneered the style and, working closely with Fender, pushed the boundaries of electric amplification technology. His speedy picking and showmanship has been considered a precursor to Heavy Metal and has influenced the likes of Jimi Hendrix and Eddie Van Halen.

  • OOIOO
    OOIOO 7/23 8:00PM
     

    Inspired by an ancient form of Javanese music, Japanese band OOIOO (pronounced oh-oh-eye-oh-oh) is bursting onto the Detroit scene this weekend for a forceful performance. The band formed during the mid-1990s, merging experimental and pop music into a unique style. Their seventh and most recent album, Gamel, released on July 1, has received positive reviews that acknowledge the music’s fun, yet challenging vibe. Incorporating the tradition of Gamelan into their versatile musical style, OOIOO is led by the captivating drummer, Yoshimi, previously of the noise-pop group Boredom. (She’s the inspiration for the Flaming Lips album Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots). Her skill and leadership are legendary, and for one night you can catch this international phenomenon in an intimate concert at the museum.

  • Camera Obscura
    Camera Obscura 7/24 8:00PM
     

    Tomorrow night, the sweet indie pop melodies of this Scottish five-piece will be floating through the Loving Touch. . With ease, front woman Tracyanne Campbell’s smooth, candied vocals and wry Scottish story telling illustrate the challenges of life. Themes often circle around heartbreak, a common thread running through their recent album Desire Lines, released June 4. The album title nods to life’s uncommon paths that are marked by wear, not by signs; the paths our feet choose naturally. Forging its own desire lines, Camera Obscura’s unconventional style is well off the beaten path.
