Although the Detroit Repertory Theatre packs plenty of laugh-grabbers and tear-jerkers into each season, its artists have more on their minds than just entertaining theatergoers. The actors, playwrights, producers, and directors of the Repertory want to unite all Metropolitan Detroit communities under a banner of creativity. It's a lofty ambition, but the theater hasn't lost focus on that goal since it first opened in 1957. As the oldest alternative professional theater company in the state, it prides itself on having weathered storms economic, social, and literal, and continues to produce four shows a year that remind audiences of the power of live performance.

Those shows often feature scripts from the most promising talents in the Midwest, and aim to be as thought-provoking as they are engaging. The theater follows practices of ethnicity- and gender-blind casting whenever possible, ensuring that the people on stage represent the range of people in the audience. And that dedication to community extends beyond the footlights?the theater welcomes play submissions from local writers, and displays pieces from Michigan artists in the lobby.

Owned by former Red Wings defenseman Chris Chelios, Cheli's Chili Bar creates a laid-back, family-friendly atmosphere to take in the game, nosh on some bar food and guzzle down brews. Walls are bedecked with more than 30 HD screens to watch the games and are covered with sports memorabilia to watch you watch the games with their beady, collectible eyes. While each Cheli's location carries its own distinct dishes and beers, both the Dearborn and Detroit menus come topped by the signature chili. Order it by the cup ($4.25), in a luscious mix of cheddar, onions, and sour cream ($6.25), or smeared with mustard and onion on a Coney dog ($5.95). Patrons appreciate the delicious waffle fries, which sneak onto the plate of each dinner entree and sandwich, and appetizer explorers love to traverse mountainous portions of nachos ($9.50), layered with cheese, onion, sour cream, black olives, and jalapeños. The fully stocked bars at each Cheli's allow you to wash down your gullet with a wide array of beers on tap, in bottle, and in wrought-iron Stanley Cup chalices.

The Detroit River's international waters stretch out for miles in either direction, winding along the Detroit skyline and kissing the Canadian border. As ships snake their way through the current, they pass lighthouses on small green islands, bridges stretched across overhead, and workers milling about on the riverside docks. Building on 20 years of boating, the captains of the Diamond Jack, Diamond Belle, and Diamond Queen let passengers take in these sights to the tune of guided narration as their ships' white and sea-foam green hulls slice through the water. The three ships have proven impervious to squalls and Poseidon's road-construction crews since their maiden voyages in the mid- to late 1950s, and safely gather up to 250 passengers on their panoramic upper decks or in protected lower cabins. Today, passengers on these storied steel decks can sip beer, wine, and soft drinks or nibble on snacks from an on-board snack bar during tours. Captains also pilot each ship on private group excursions, as well as school field trips past the river's ships, yacht clubs, parks, and docks.
