"A favorite watering hole for Detroit's newspeople, Red Wings fans and all types of metro Detroiters. They come for the atmosphere and stick around for the burgers and typical pub grub."
The cool ambience, eclectic crowd to the airy high-ceilinged space, with wooden tables and couches scattered about, dominated by a horseshoe-shaped fieldstone bar. The open “kitchen” at one end of the bar is so tiny that it precludes elaborate culinary preparations. The generously proportioned starters that average around $5 include crunchy and succulent hot or honey barbecued chicken wings, and nine sandwiches ($4.99-$7.49) are constructed with organic bread from Avalon, range from veggie or grilled chicken paninis to several Reubens and a vegetarian “tofurkey lurkey” with tofu, swiss cheese, tomato and honey mustard. The highlight of the simple menu is the array of juicy beef, turkey, buffalo and vegetarian burgers ($4.49). As for liquid refreshment, many beers go for $4.50 a pint. Monday through Thursday during the 4-6 p.m. happy hour, they are marked down to $2.50.
BlackFinn began its corporate life in 1994 as an Irish pub, but the only remnant of those origins is the Guinness sauce and marinade that appear on several dishes and the Bailey’s Irish Cream that enhances a mousse. Referred to instead as “an American saloon,” the pub theme is emphasized on the walls in vintage photographs of celebrated saloons. The sprawling, boisterous lounge and the much more sedate dining room, which seat around 120 people, feature the sort of dark wooden tables and walls that one would expect to find in the classic urban tavern, although with more than 20 flat-screen TVs. The substantial appetizers average around $9, including a pulled pork sandwich and three chicken and three steak skewers. Along with chili and a soup of the day, BlackFinn offers New England clam chowder chock-full of potatoes and clam bits. Some sauces overwhelm the entrees, but the honey-dill glaze on the Atlantic salmon ($16.99) served with rice pilaf is just about right. Among the desserts, there is a bit of the Irish in the luscious dark chocolate mousse laced with Bailey’s, served in a tall glass. And the small 25-bottle wine list will appeal to penurious tipplers with relative bargains.
Irish pubs, which have long been a feature of the American drinking scene, have become a worldwide phenomenon, flourishing in such unlikely venues as Moscow and Tokyo. And so it makes sense that the Blarney Stone's everyday menu is all-American pub grub. The Susie-Q-Fish & Chips dinner ($10.95) is based on the original recipe of the celebrated drive-in restaurant. Burton fries his freshly-cut scrod encased in a secret-recipe batter that emerges as a thick, crispy but surprisingly light crust, accompanied by house-made tartar sauce and Susie's vinegar-based cole slaw. Try the order of five flavorful burger sliders ($5.95) - with pickles, onions and a tomato-mustard sauce. There are 10 other burger varieties, including, again for the health-conscious, bison or turkey.

This “adrenaline-fueled” funk and soul band was formed in the late ‘90s by a close knit group of eight self-taught musicians living in L.A.. Featuring their new powerhouse vocalist, Adryon de León, the band is preparing for the release of their seventh full-length album later this fall. Their music is an energetic, heart-pounding blend of deep soul, funk, afro-disco and edgy rock, covering hits like “It’s Your Thing” in addition to writing and composing their own original songs. The Infatuations and Third Coast Kings also perform.

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.
Come out and celebrate Detroit’s 313th birthday at The Detroit Historical Society’s Streets of Old Detroit exhibit.

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.
