With its unique decor and handcrafted specialty cocktails, The Bosco exemplifies class without pretension. According to Metromix, the premises evoke nature inside and out, with decorative trees and a courtyard adorned with waterfalls. At the bar, mixologists create specialty martinis that incorporate fresh fruit juices, simple syrups, liqueurs, and chocolate shavings. Later in the evenings, live DJs spin eclectic tunes at lounge-style events, and patrons enjoy amenities such as valet parking, bottle service, and a direct landline to the president.

At an improv show, not even clairvoyant mystics or current fashion experts know what's coming next. Enjoy a predictably sporadic evening of collaborative comedy with today's deal. For $15, you get two tickets ($15 each) to your choice of a Friday- or Saturday-night show at Go! Comedy Improv Theater, a $30 total value. In 2010, Real Detroit Weekly dubbed this Ferndale-based theater Best Comedy Company, and Metro Times readers named it Best Comedy Club in 2009.

Ralph Waldo Emerson once stated that flowers are the earth laughing at a tastefully improvised flatulence joke, though Go! Comedy prefers higher-brow forms, converting bodily functions to complex metaphors for life and love. Stop by Saturday at 8 p.m. for the Date Night, where the audience chooses which two actors should become star-crossed romantics amidst the fabricated social dynamics of onstage dramedy. Live out a theatrical fantasy on Friday night at 8 p.m. when you shout out a suggestive title at the on-the-fly musical, Rock-O-Matic. Any suggestion will do; scream for a performance of Whittler on the Roof, Guys and Barbie Dolls, or Homeschool Musical (no "Freebird"). Stop in Friday or Saturday night at 10 p.m. for the All-Star Showdown, an interactive game show that takes audience suggestions as actors move through a series of improv games and challenges.

With four weekend showtimes to choose from, impromptu improv outings can easily nestle inside the Russian doll that is a busy schedule. Gather up a crowd of formerly taunted teens and laugh with them, not at them, or bring a date for a chance to shamelessly yell taboo words in public without the awkward accosting. All shows feature a full bar to loosen up the spasmodic laughter reflexes.

Reviews

Detroit loves Go Comedy! Improv Theater, which won Best Comedy Club in 2009 from Metro Times readers and Best Comedy Company in 2010 from Real Detroit Weekly. Yelpers give it 4.5 stars.

  • Laughs are one commodity this battered Rust Belt community is always in need of, and Go! Comedy is all too willing to tickle what's left of your weary funny bone. A formerly grimly utilitarian Secretary of State office in Ferndale has morphed into a jubilant home base for Detroit's scattered improv comedy tribes, with all the off-the-cuff humor one could ever dream of. – Metro Times
  • Those characters at GO! Comedy in Ferndale are really good, or maybe some of you just need to get out more. For the second year in a row, the funny fashionistas on 9 Mile have been selected by a discerning readership as the best troupe in town when it comes to Thalia’s temper tantrums. – Real Detroit Weekly

At Mistalocks, students learn dances with such upbeat names as boppin' and steppin', just two of the studio's unconventional lineup of partner dance styles. In group classes, master instructor Buford Collins starts at the beginning, showing students how to count out rhythms, feel the music, and follow steps with a partner. His specialty is Chicago Style Steppin', which has similar characteristics to West Coast Swing, but he also leads students through the steps of Detroit ballroom, Graystone, tango, and salsa. For him, these dance styles are more than just a way to move to music. He considers them a fundamental part of humanity's heritage, much like reality television.

Cousins Elias Hajjar and Nicholas Aubrey take yearly trips back to Lebanon to visit their family, but they can eat authentic Lebanese cuisine without leaving the confines of their own restaurant. With Gemmayze, which is named after a bohemian neighborhood in Beirut, they "wanted to create not only a menu that exemplified what's happening in Beirut and Lebanon right now, but we wanted to re-create the atmosphere,” Hajjar said in a Detroit Metromix article. “So the colors on the walls and ceiling are light and very clean and refreshing, and the menu reflects that as well.”

Inside the multi-level dining room, dangling lights twist like a strand of DNA above tables topped with shareable plates of hummus, grape leaves, and kibbe nayee—minced raw meat with bulgur and spices. Each dish is made from scratch using recipes that date back generations. Nearby, decorative palm tree appliqués cling to windows and a large brushed metal frame displays a variety of vintage forks, which can only be wielded by the rightful ruler of England. After dinner, patrons can move into the lounge and perch atop comfy ottomans and banquettes swaddled in rich fabrics while sipping wine or a cocktail.

Every morning at Tom’s Oyster Bar, chefs scrawl the day’s battered and grilled seafood specials on chalkboard menus suspended from the ceiling. In addition to that list of freshly caught fish, the chefs tout their commitment to fresh seafood by stocking their raw bar with oysters that are shucked to order and then gently scolded for hording pearls.

In the wood-accented dining room, companions can sip from dozens of draft and bottled brews and bask in the glow of flat-screen TVs, or retreat to the outdoor patio and take in views of downtown Royal Oak.
