Friday, May 3rd - Detroit Vineyards Grand Opening: Everyone knows that there are plenty of great breweries in Detroit, but now there will also be a winery! Detroit Vineyards is the first fully operating winery to open in Detroit in over 50 years. The new winery and tasting room will be open in the Eastern Market District at 1000 Gratiot Avenue, in over 12,000 square feet of the old Stroh's Ice Cream building. Friday's grand opening celebration will go from 11 a.m. until midnight and will feature wine, mead, and ciders inside and food trucks out front.

Friday, May 3rd & Saturday, May 4th - Space Dive @ Tangent Gallery: Every Star Wars fan knows that May the 4th is a pun-filled holiday. For five years now, the Tangent Gallery has been transforming its space into the Mos Eisley Cantina for this special day. You truly will feel like you are right in the Star Wars films at these events and costumes are of course mandatory. Cover for Friday is $20, for Saturday it's $25, or you can pay $35 for both nights.
