Head to Hamtramck to Party and Get Your Paczki!

Paczki is a word that not everyone around the world knows, but here in Metro Detroit, it's rare to find someone that doesn't know what paczki are! Some may just consider them jelly doughnuts, but they're so much more. After all, people don't party like crazy for national doughnut day, but they definitely do for Paczki Day!

This Tuesday, February 13th is Paczki Day. People throughout the area will be lining up at their favorite bakery and feasting on these delicious pieces of fried dough stuffed with their favorite filling. Sure, you can head to your local grocery store and pick up a box, but for those that want the most authentic paczki around, they head to Hamtramck. And while they're there, they most likely will stick around to party! This holiday has grown into so much more that a day to stuff your face with these tasty treats. The City of Hamtramck turns into a giant party, full of live music, drinks, and great food. Bars all around town will be hosting their own Paczki Day parties, but everyone knows the best party of them all is at Small's!

Everyone's favorite corner bar in Hamtramck will be the only bar around featuring paczki bombs; paczki filled with not only jelly or custard, but also with booze! These deliciously sinful treats are one of a kind and sell out every year! So if you want a paczki bomb, make sure you get to Small's early! If you just want to party, the party will be going all day and night. There will be great drink specials, Polish food and live music starting at 4 p.m. The bands will be playing in both rooms and the lineup includes:

4-4:45 p.m. Eastside Elvis & The Motor City Mafia (main room)
4:45-5:15 p.m.: Colonels of the Urinal (bar room)
5:15-6 p.m.: Eastside Elvis & The Motor City Mafia (main)
6:30-7:30 p.m.: the Polka Floyd show (main)
7:30-8 p.m.: Colonels of the Urinal (bar)
8:00-9 p.m.: the Polka Floyd Show (main)
9:20 p.m.-?: The Bon Johnsons (main)

Small's will also be debuting their own beer this Paczki Day, the Small's Sto Lat Lager from Brew Detroit. So get to Small's early and stay late! Doors will open at 10 a.m. and the bar will stay open until 2. For all of the details on Paczki Day at Small's, click here
