Get Busy: The best events and things to do in Detroit

What to do this week:

🍕 Would eat at PizzaPlex nightly if that sorta thing was socially acceptable. It’s easier when you can make the ‘za at home, and fortunately they’re sharing the secrets to their “char-freckled crust.” Yum. Learn the art of Pizza Napoletana at the PizzaYOLO cooking class, and please make some to share. (Aug. 14 and following Tuesdays, Southwest, $50, tix here)

🤸 Channel your inner kid, shake off the back-to-school blues and press PLAY for Recess Playtime 3.0. Expect freeze tag, jumping rope, tree climbing, and whatever else you and your imagination can cook up. (Aug. 18, Lafayette Park, free, more info on Facebook)

🎺 Say do you remember? Earth, Wind & Fire are hosting the ultimate Detroit summer dance party at Chene Park. (Aug. 18, $55+, tickets here)


Get it on your calendar:

🏡 Who built them? Why did they build them? We have no clue but we’re so into it. The Weird Homes Tour lets you through the front door and inside the architectural fantasies of Detroit’s most creative abodes. (Aug. 25, $30+, more info here)
