"The bar is one of Birmingham's favorite watering holes, the dining room in the back slightly less frantic at this brightly reworked circa-1932 building where chef Jack Leone has done wonders for the menu. Now colorful contemporary dishes, typified by angelhair pasta with chicken, tomatoes, white beans and artichokes, stuffed tenderloin and linguine with shrimp, spinach and lemon, and some great Italian salads make the food live up to the witty decor which pays homage to the light bulb. A separate, downstairs room called Edison's offers live jazz, its own menu of light dishes, and upscale drinks like martinis and champagne in the evening, Thursday through Saturday."

Atwater is back, both the name and the concept of a great brewery with great food. Expect the original Atwater beers with "very, very good pub food." That will mean regional and seasonal specials and such German specialties as wiener schnitzel.
In the summer months, historic Kerrytown's Aut Bar spills out onto a quiet courtyard it has nearly all to itself. Functioning as a restaurant and a bar (the second level is 21 and older only), the kitchen was formerly only open at night, But there's now a popular weekend brunch Saturday (10 a.m.- 2 p.m.) and Sunday (10a.m.-3 p.m.) For brunch, Mexican specialties are standouts, including breakfast burritos or huevos motulenos — layers of corn tortilla, eggs, and black beans with ranchero sauce, diced ham, peas and cheese on top. Even the standard omelet gets a twist, like the take-off from meat and cheese in their turkey and gouda. The Aut Bar is definitely gay-friendly, catering to the LGBT community and their friends, families, and allies.

A recently completed renovation has brought the Bath City Bistro back to its original turn-of-the-century glory. The walls are decorated with historical photographs of Mt. Clemens from its heyday as "Bath City, USA" The Bistro's main attraction is its three lanes of trough bowling, a traditional Belgian sport that could be described as a cross between boccie ball and shuffleboard. You can enjoy your favorite beverage while trough bowling with new friends, or sit back and watch others play from the main dining room. The Bistro is open for lunch and dinner, with a menu that includes a wide variety of appetizers, steaks, calzones and seafood (the mussels are a Belgian favorite).

If you’ve seen this YouTube star’s most famous videos, then you already know to expect something extravagant, colorful and hilarious as Todrick Hall sets out on his first tour of comedy skits, parodies, flash mobs and music. Hall initially shot to fame as a contestant on American Idol Season 9 after making it to the semi-finals. Once booted off the show, he dedicated his career to creating musically driven projects online including the viral videos “It Gets Better,” “McDonalds Drive Thru Song,” and “Cinderfella.” VIP tickets include a meet and greet with Todrick Hall and a signed poster. Watch him perform live this weekend when doors open at 6.
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.
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.

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.
