It's Time to Put Yourself Out There, Have a Coffee, and Try Improv at Sip Prov

 

The landscape of Detroit has changed a lot post-COVID. We have found it a bit harder to find new friends and new experiences, so we have really been trying to put ourselves out there. We realize that we can't be the only people who are feeling a little lost and disconnected in this new landscape, so we are going to start sharing a lot more ways that you can put yourself out there and try something new in Metro Detroit. 

The first thing we want to tell you about is a new event called Sip Prov. Local comedian and Hip Prov creator Tam White has designed a new way for people who want to try improv and meet new people to give it a try in a no-pressure environment. This open to all jam will feature for purchase coffee from Detroit Sip and vegan baked goods from Zella's Bakery as well as a space for you to meet new people and to try your hand at improv. On top of all of this, proceeds from the event will go to The Detroit Creativity Project, a great organization that supports Detroit's creatives.

Sip Prov will take over Detroit Sip on Saturday, October 15th from 4:30 p.m. - 7 p.m. Detroit Sip is located at 7420 West McNichols and there is a suggested donation of $5 at the door. 

If you are not sure what improv is we suggest checking out Monday Night Improv at Planet Ant. It has been a Detroit staple for decades and it will help you understand why this creative outlet/performance outlet can be so freeing and fun.

This Weekend: DIY Street Fair + the Funky Ferndale Art Fair

This weekend, Downtown Ferndale will be overtaken with art, music, food, and the DIY spirit. Two yearly festivals will close down 9 Mile for the weekend to celebrate maker culture and community.

DIY Street Fair will take over the East side of 9 Mile this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The three-day festival features over 150 makers, 15 bands (including national acts), and a variety of food and drinks.  This year's musical acts include Flobots, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Haley Heyndrickx, and the Passalacqua reunion that we have been dreaming of. There is even a cool yoga session you can be a part of!

The West side of 9 Mile will have more of a fine art vibe. Think investment pieces that you hang in the living room or something hand blown that took years to learn how to craft. There are around 100 artists and 30 writers/authors that are featured on this side of the city. The FFAF will also be open all three days!

Both festivals are free to attend all weekend. Parking can be hard to find, but if you are willing to pay, Credit Union One and The dot are the easiest places to park. There will be food trucks at both events, but all of Downtown Ferndale's restaurants will be open and happy to serve you if you want to get out of the sun and off your feet for a little bit.

You can learn more about DIY here.
