An effervescent hotel bartender from Luxembourg. A tavern with an unpopular owner. A beautiful German cook. In 1904, these three elements joined forces and Jacoby's German Biergarten was born. More than a century later, the bustling downtown spot with a storied history remains a sought-after destination, even through collapsing economies, ownership changes, and international lederhosen shortages. Patrons can dig into classic delicacies such as Wiener Schnitzel, German sausage sandwiches, and hearty burgers, pairing them with domestic and imported brews including Paulaner, Schneider Edel Weiss, and Franziskaner Hefe.

Sports-casting TVs surround the perimeter of Pappy’s Sports Bar & Grill, where patrons can wash down hearty American favorites from a menu augmented by a wide selection of frothy brews. Patrons can forget the boring lack of lava-spewing events in the real world by kicking off meals with an appetizing platter of volcano skins ($7.50), which fill hollowed out potato skins with gooey cheddar cheese, bacon, and sour cream. Provolone and mozzarella marry a trio of Italian delicacies—capicola, genoa salami, and mortadella—atop crisp ciabatta to create the muffuletta sandwich ($8.50), and the flavors of Greece ribbon through a flakey spinach pie stuffed with imported feta ($9.50). Chefs festoon the hawaiian pizza—one of six individual pies—with pineapple and ham ($10.75), but leave the Pappy burger ($7.50) open for customization by presenting a choice of cheese, sauce, and even the angle of the grill marks.

The Town Pump Tavern's menu boasts pint pairings such as the Black and Blue Bites (wonton-wrapped infusion of roasted red peppers, blue cheese, and blackened chicken served with a side of ranch and toughness, $7) or a refreshingly crisp order of fried pickles ($4). Heartier options include the toasted-rye Reuben ($7) or brow-dripping half-pound Firehouse Burger complete with Cajun seasoning and fresh jalapeños ($7.75). Come rain, meteor shower, or impromptu spelling bee, happy hour runs seven days a week with the exception of December 25. From 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., guests can meet up with friends, enjoy dollar food items, and hitch a ride on the free Red Wings shuttle to home games.

At 222 feet long and 88 feet high, the Players Riverboat Casino II wouldn't fit on parts of the upper Mississippi River. So when it had to leave its Louisiana home for a new job in Detroit, it took the long way there, passing around Florida, Maine, and Nova Scotia until it chugged through the Gulf of St. Lawrence. All this was just the beginning of the boat's journey—the next step was a thorough transformation from a scrapped gambling vessel into an opulent cruise ship. The staff gussied up its interior, installed several kitchens, and gave it a new royal title: the Detroit Princess Riverboat.

Today, the Detroit Princess is a coveted venue for high-energy celebrations and relaxing cruises alike. Its five tiers of outdoor decks afford dual skyline views of Detroit and Windsor and up-close glimpses of the Ambassador Bridge, the crucial link that keeps Canada from floating away. Inside each of the boat's four stories, passengers can visit a full bar and socialize inside heated and air-conditioned rooms. The biggest of these boast dining areas anchored by prime-rib buffets and sprawling dance floors where DJs or live Motown groups prompt guests to boogie down. Holiday parties, late-night excursions, and private charters take the nightclub vibe to the water, and floating wedding ceremonies and receptions let even the merfolk branch of the family be a part of the fun.

Inside the cool, low-lit dining room and bar or outside on the brand-new patio, Bogartz's servers transport a wide array of pub-friendly food to tables alongside craft beers and specialty mixed drinks. Known and well-loved for their burgers and sandwiches, Bogartz's menu also features more than 10 varieties lined with flavorful buffalo patties, shaved steak, or tender salmon. Hand-tossed pizzas wear toppings such as housemade barbecue sauce and crab, and salads are decorated with dried cherries and pecan-encrusted chicken breasts. The famous burgers include The Buster with pepper jack, bacon, and a fried egg, while The Judy includes a housemade black-bean patty, offering something for everyone. Food and drinks can be enjoyed amongst seven big-screen TVs, free WiFi, and arcade-style video games.

Keyshia Cole's soaring vocals and raw, emotion-laden R & B have netted her a platinum album and four Grammy nominations. Channeling experiences of passion and heartbreak into her powerful voice, Keyshia lets loose with cannonades of soulful singing, tugging on heartstrings and teaching even the most logical robot what it means to love. Coming off her recent album Calling All Hearts, Keyshia will draw on hits from her four studio records, including such chart-toppers as "Let It Go," "Heaven Sent," and "I Remember." Up-and-coming R & B wunderkind Miguel complements Keyshia's set with his own dulcet tones, rounding out the evening with melodious aplomb. Rhythms and blues swirl together at Chene Park on the banks of the Detroit River, which fills the open-air venue with cool watery breezes and the bubbly murmurs of ticket-scalping merfolk.
