Pokémon Go Events in the Metro Detroit Area

It seems like all of the cool kids are playing Pokémon Go these days! In case you've been living under a rock, it's a cool new app that uses your phone to show you Pokémon throughout the streets. You've gotta catch 'em all and there are even Poké Stops, Gyms and more. The game encourages you to get out in the streets and make stops at local landmarks and businesses.

Since I don't play Pokémon Go, I'm probably leaving A LOT of details out. But, what I can tell you is that it sounds like a lot of fun and the streets have been filled with people staring at their phones looking for Pikachu, Bulbasaur and more! It is such a hit that people are meeting up at bars, meeting new friends in the streets, and places are even making events based on Pokémon Go. So, we wanted to let you know about a few Pokémon Go events that we came across that sound pretty cool.

The first two events are happening this Thursday, July 21st. In Ferndale, The Loving Touch is hosting a meetup where you can, "Meet your teammates, learn tips, share strategies, discover other local trainers, and much more". All ages are welcome to attend and the event is free. The bar is asking that you please wear your team color so teammates can find you easily. The meetup starts at 7 p.m.

On the same night, you can head out to Mt. Clemens for a Pokémon Go Food Truck Rally! The food trucks will gather in the parking lot of St. Peter's, at Pine St. and New St. Some of the trucks that will be on site include Hero Or Villain Van, Detroit BBQ Company, GoCheez and Detroit Mini Donut. A lure module will be provided, showing all of the stops in the area and local businesses will be doing giveaways throughout the evening. The rally is set to start at 7:30 p.m. and will run until 11:30 p.m.

Then, on Monday, July 25th there will be a Pokémon Go bar crawl through the streets of Detroit. A group will be meeting at Checker Bar at 6 p.m., will walk the streets catching Pokémon, and will grab food and drinks along the way. The crawl will end with games at Checker Bar around 9 p.m. For more info, click here.

If you know about any other Pokémon Go events happening around town, please comment and let us know! We're sure there are plenty of people out there that are looking for more chances to meet up with other trainers and catch some Pokémon!
