Before they were household names, Ellen DeGeneres, Tim Allen, and Drew Carey were performers at the Ann Arbor Comedy Showcase. The establishment, once dubbed by Rolling Stone as “one of the best clubs between the coasts,” has been corralling burgeoning stars to its stage since its 1984 inception when it was called Mainstreet Comedy Showcase. Several nights a week, nationally touring comedians who’ve graced the stages of Late Show with David Letterman and Showtime’s Comics Without Borders share witty observations, humorous songs, and intense eye contact with brave audience members in the front row.

Founder Dr. Neil Clark Warren studied the key ingredients of successful marriages to produce the 29 Dimensions of Compatibility model. A pair of websites—eHarmony and Compatible Partners, eHarmony's Gay and Lesbian site—plug canoodling candidates into the advanced cupidean theorem, which is then solved until x equals lifelong love likelihood. Fling flings aside in favor of enduring enchantment as the eHarmony method deeply analyzes traits such as adaptability, self concept, emotion management, and taco-shell preference. They'll use their findings to determine the most likely life-loves out of more than 33 million users who vary in religious background, race, age, and location. Along with a list of matches, your membership grants you access to a safe, anonymous communication system—as well as guidance on ice-breaking from outgoing penguins.

Founded in 1991 by acclaimed actor and playwright Jeff Daniels, The Purple Rose Theatre Company enriches its community with original and classic productions that range from light-hearted comedies to poignant dramas. Resident artists elicit laughs during Escanaba in da Moonlight, a revival of Daniels's deer-camp comedy about a group of hunters competing for the first shot at a buck and the most creative camouflage pattern. Starting January 19, A Stone Carver introduces us to a retired stonemason named Agostino who resists being evicted from his home in the face of planned highway construction, even at the risk of alienating his only son. Converted from a 1900s-era auto garage, The Purple Rose Theatre Company distributes sight lines evenly throughout its 168-seat auditorium and grumbling Model T ghosts throughout its marbled 1930s-style lobby.

The Village Pub invites diners to dig into classic American pub food or settle in at the granite bar for drinks and sports shown on seven televisions. Burgers and sandwiches abound, including a Yuengling-battered haddock sandwich and The Villager, a half-pound patty topped with monterey jack and fried onion rings and covered in barbecue sauce and chipotle mayo on a brioche bun. Specialities include fish and chips, sirloin steak, and a seafood taco, made with the pub's Bang-Bang sauce. Guests can also enjoy drinks from the restaurant's full bar, one of more than a dozen bottled and draft beers, or a selection of wines.
