Give Back and Kick Ass at New Dodge!

The New Dodge has become one of my favorite bars in Hamtramck. Two years ago I watched Wilson play there with about 10 people during the Metro Times Blowout. Now every time I see a band there it's packed wall to wall. The bartenders rule, the drinks are cheap, and the upstairs is a great spot to get an eagle's eye view of the place and shoot videos for the site. They also tend to have a lot of free food, which is something that no one is going to complain about after they have had a few drinks.

What I didn't know was that all those buffets and pizzas were because of two people, because of two very special people, Edie and Bob, friends of the New Dodge. They have a close relationship with bartenders and cater all the various parties that the staff comes up with. The New Dodge staff recently found out that the two were going through some hard times and wanted to give back and thank them for all that they have done over the last few years.

They are having benefit called “Give Back and Kick Ass" this Wednesday, February 26th to try to raise money for their friends. The New Dodge will feature performances by Radio Burns, Petal Shop, 500 Club, and Josef Coney Island. They will also be featuring art from Haley Stone, Kylie Lane, and Ryan Trautmann. There will be a large taco and nacho bar and raffles too! They want you to have fun while donating money to a great cause.

They are asking for a $10 donation at the door, but you can feel free to give more if you can spare it. The fun starts at 4 p.m., the food starts at 8 p.m., and the party goes 'til 2 a.m. The New Dodge is located at 8850 Jos Campau in Hamtramck.
