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

What to do this week:

Friday: 

🏖️ A party in Campus Martius’ oversized sandbox might sound a little cheesy… until you realize summer is in its sad decline, and there aren’t too many Fridays left to put your toes in the sand and order a frozen daiquiri from a beachside bar. (Aug. 24 and Aug. 31, downtown, free, info)

Saturday: 

🙏 Get out of the stuffy exercise room and practice yoga in a performance space, set to live classical music. A Detroit Yoga Lab instructor is leading the Om @ the Max slow yin class this Saturday. (Aug. 25, Midtown, $20, tickets and info)

🛍️ Let’s hope the weather holds this weekend for the North Cass Neighborhood Summer Sidewalk Sale, a strolling-shopping extravaganza. Discounts, DJs and more are in the works from retailers like City Bird, Flo Boutique, Third Man Records and Detroit Clothing Circle — food specials are on the schedule as well. We’re eager to see the treasures they dig up for the Whitney’s estate sale. (Aug. 25, Midtown, free to visit, info on Facebook)

🏡 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)

Sunday: 

🐶 Bulldogs, Brews & Beards — this one shouldn’t need much more to pique your interest. Detroit Barbers is donating proceeds from beard trims Sunday to the Detroit Bulldog Rescue. Bring your pup to check out the forthcoming coffee shop, a four-legged pampering station with custom-made products, dog washes and, adorably, a bulldog kissing booth. (Aug. 26, Corktown, prices vary, details)
