    Every Thursday evening through August, the Detroit’s historic Whitney mansion will host a party in its illustrious garden sanctuaries. Built in 1894 for lumber baron David Whitney Jr., the elaborate structure now serves as a sort of time capsule in the center of Midtown, allowing you to escape the incessant buzz of city life and peak into a previous chapter of Detroit. Nosh shrimp and oysters at the raw bar or enjoy champagne and wine specials amongst the vibrant flowers. If appetizers won’t satisfy, the full dinner menu will also be available. Happy hour begins at 5:00 p.m. with live entertainment running from 6:30 to 8:30.

  • Avalon International Breads

    If you like your sandwiches made for you, show up at lunchtime as the focaccia comes out of the oven. It might be topped with organic roasted zucchini, tomatoes, basil and Parmesan. Avalon has branched out from the baguettes and crusty peasant loaves that have brought bread-starved customers flocking for years. Now brioche, scones and cinnamon rolls expand the meaning of “bread.”

  • Hilberry Theatre
