A 1,201-seat auditorium that values acoustic excellence as much as visual grandeur, the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center houses ornate wooden accents and intricate wall panels that soar over a sweeping balcony peppered with plush red seats. Ample wheelchair seating and elevators to all levels abound, ensuring audience members seated in the balcony won’t need to rely on the creaky wooden catapults still in use at many theaters.
The Haunted Kingdom sprawls across 65,000 square feet, with DJs, fortunetellers, and local celebrities shambling about an eye-defying dance floor flush with thousands of revelers dressed in their best getups. Lights pulse to body-shaking bass as silk dancers twist like spiders from the ceiling above dramatically lit skeletons.
Boasting indoor courts, modern equipment, and a multipurpose aquatic center, the Dearborn Racquet & Health Club encourages fitness for the whole family. The facility was fully renovated four years ago and has made upgrades every year since. Racquet addicts can take a whack on the spacious indoor tennis courts or face a goggle-wearing foe on the hardwood floors of the four racquetball rooms. After honing sprint speed and long-distance stamina on the indoor running track, guests will never again miss the ice-cream truck. The track surrounds the fitness center, a 17,000-square-foot forest of strength-training and cardiovascular equipment. The swimming pool's lanes welcome liquid laps, and the hot tub's jets massage workout-weary appendages and warm popsicle-filled bellies. An indoor golf training center allows club connoisseurs a chance to practice their swings without wandering through the bramble after sliced balls.
Oakwood Grill & Bar sates stomachs with classic American bar fare, wets whistles with a wide array of beer, wine, and cocktails, and keeps boredom at bay with a full slate of boisterous special events. The menu's hearty offerings include a herd of 24 buffalo wings ($17.95) and the spicy Hot in Here burger ($6.95) topped with grilled jalapeños, pepper jack cheese, and three strips of Dearborn bacon. Like ancient Egyptian papyrus scrolls, the loaded pepperoni roll ($6.95) enfolds more than 40 pepperoni slices in thin pizza dough slathered in butter and parmesan cheese. Hungry herbivores, meanwhile, can snack on lightly battered fried pickles and cream-cheese jalapeños ($4.95) while sipping beers and cocktails mixed behind Oakwood's long cement bar with a motor-powered cement mixer.
During the 39th Annual All Depression and Era Glass Show & Sale, more than 20 dealers of American-made glassware from the 1920s–‘60s will hawk their wares in the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center, filling the hall with their light-catching, colorful collections. Tinted in every color of the rainbow, Depression glass livens kitchens with cheery hues, tempts collectors with rare shades, and repels bulls when places in china shops. Pyrex and green Jadeite from the ‘40s–‘60s treat eyes to intricate nostalgia, and elegant glass adds a refined touch to shelves and dinnerware collections. Though not covered by today’s Groupon, desired items sail into shopping bags for as little as a few dollars per piece, and hourly door-prize drawings add an element of suspense rivaled only by the convention’s blindfolded goblet juggler.
